Canter Companies Launches Canter University, an  Education Program for Real Estate Agents

Informative classes for real estate brokers focuses on the psychology of real estate, marketing, branding and much more

SAN DIEGO, CA – May. 4, 2015 – Canter Companies, a full-service investment and real estate firm dedicated to the entire lifecycle of development and investments, announced the launch of a new series of educational classes designed for licensed real estate agents and brokers called Canter University. The 12-week program kicked off this week and will be held on Mondays from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. at the Canter Companies’ Bird Rock office in La Jolla. The classes are offered at no charge and they are open to all agents and brokers. The curriculum is focused on business planning, training and success coaching. Anna Ward, vice president of Canter Brokerage, is the inspiration behind Canter University. For the classes she will utilize her background in psychology as well as her 16 years of experience as a realtor.

“We started Canter University because there was a need in the community for this type of real estate education,” said Anna Ward. “The courses we will be teaching focus on personality traits and the personality styles of both sellers and buyers and where the broker needs to go to accomplish their goals. It’s not just about selling or buying a house, it’s about servicing a need.”

The weekly classes will run through July 20. Topics vary for each class and they include, buyer and seller motivations, learning how to capitalize on current market conditions, as well as best practices for marketing, branding and advertising. Anna Ward will be working with other veteran agents within the Canter Companies team along with guest lecturers to teach the classes.
