Members note education as their one essential service for business success

In our 2021 member survey conducted in mid-July, we asked our members about their educational preferences.

When asked about the one service that is essential for their business success, 61% of respondents ranked educational offerings as their most valued service.

Virtual/online learning is highly valued by our members with 55% of respondents preferring the virtual format when given a choice. Nearly 60% of respondents believe that hybrid classes offered in both formats – virtual and live – would be effective for educational offerings.

Respondents’ most requested educational topics are:

  • Legal/professionalism
  • Diversity, equity, and inclusion
  • Business tools/practices/development
  • Technology

Each year, Seattle King County REALTORS® offers over 70 courses with a wide range of topics to over 2,000 attendees.
