Career Development Program
Big corporate logos and elaborate icons don’t sell homes, individual agents sell homes!

At Desert Heritage Real Estate we provide you with the tools, support, training and knowledge to succeed in today’s market.

- One on One Training
The “cookie cutter” approach would be fine if we all had the same mannerisms and characteristics but the one thing you have that no other person will ever have is your personality. That’s why our one on one training programs are tailored to benefit each individual Agent. At Desert Heritage Real Estate, you can be confident that you are receiving the personal attention that will help you meet your Real Estate objectives and goals.
Studies prove that mentoring does make a difference. At Desert Heritage Real Estate, we are results-driven and because this is a fast-paced industry, we challenge our Agents to set goals, accept responsibility and solve problems “on the fly”. We believe that working with a mentor accelerates the learning process, minimizes unproductive procedures and effectively catapults the trainee’s career to the next level.
- Short Sale Training
Our philosophy is “If you don’t change with the times, it’s time for a change”. Desert Heritage Real Estate was one of the first Brokerages to develop a Short Sale training program to keep our agents on the cutting edge. Short Sales are responsible for a large percentage of the current market. Get the training you need for today and when times change, we’ll have the training in place for you to change with it.
- HUD Certified
Foreclosure properties from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) are always in high demand among buyers because they are typically available for purchase at prices that are far less than market value. It’s big business, which real estate professionals can learn to profit from with the proper guidance and instruction on the process.Our Broker, Teresa Cole is authorized to sell HUD Homes. We offer classes focus on teaching you how to submit offers on HUD homes, how to properly fill out the paperwork, the inspection process and how to become Desert Heritage Real Estate HUD Certified.
- Incentives for GRI
At Desert Heritage Real Estate, we offer cash incentives for agents that commit to a higher level of professional services by securing designations in the Real Estate community. The Graduate REALTOR® Institute (GRI) symbol is the mark of a real estate professional that has made this commitment and in doing so we give back to our agents by paying a portion of the tuition paid for the classes. Come in for the complete details on this great incentive program.
Being part of a networking group will allow you to learn from the experiences of others and get first-hand knowledge from others by watching what they are doing and it will give you the knowledge and competence to go forward with your own business.
Here at Desert Heritage Real Estate, we pride ourselves on bringing our “family” together as one huge networking source! On a monthly (and sometimes weekly) basis we have a variety of networking events that we arrange; golf teams, walking club, happy hours, bowling events, charity events and getting involved with our local community to give back.
- Office Meetings
Our office meetings are scheduled monthly, which have always been voluntary. Teresa Cole, Designated Broker takes pride in keeping her agents up to date on laws and regulation changes, innovative marketing, new tools in the industry, statistics, and positive encouragement to ensure that each agent is always on the cutting edge.
- Office Webinar
Face-to-face continues to be the most compelling way to learn. However, as some of our Desert Heritage Real Estate agents have time restrictions or other engagements come up on the day of the office meeting, it made sense to offer an alternative method for professional development. These live Webinars are also conducted with our Designated Broker, Teresa Cole to give you a slightly condensed version of our monthly office meetings, so you never miss a beat!
- Office Seminars
Industry wise, Desert Heritage Real Estate is considered a “medium size” brokerage, but we like to get the best of the best. We bring in the top instructors to give our agents a competitive advantage. Small – Medium or Large: we won’t settle for anything less than the best!
Just because the tools of social media are free doesn’t mean they come without their own barrier to entry. The barrier is the knowledge of how to use them. Here at Desert Heritage Real Estate we have designed classes to assist you with the planning of how to use to use the social media platforms to promote your real estate career.
