Become a Realtor

Looking to grow your current real estate business? Find out why Edina Realty is the best place to do it!

When you’re just starting out, you often have no idea where to begin. That’s where Edina Realty comes in. We’ve compiled a nine-unit online course to guide you as you navigate your new career. It starts with Edina University, which offers hands-on learning and role-playing opportunities, and it continues with Fast Track. 

What’s Fast Track?
Fast track is an online, nine-unit, 
comprehensive training program designed to get you to your first sale fast, with units covering the following:

  1. Working on your business - Activities to help you build a solid business foundation
  2. Prospecting - Activities to help you generate listings and sales
  3. Best practices - Advice and pointers from industry experts

How does Fast Track work?
This online, nine-unit course allows you to:

  • Run at your own pace through self-guided cheat sheets and video tutorials
  • Stay on track through regular check-ins with your sales manager
  •  Assess your progress by unit and even check items off after you’ve completed them

I have my real estate license…now what?

Being a Realtor with Edina Realty means having unlimited earning potential. You set your own hours and choose what you focus on to achieve your goals. We’ve even estimated how your number of contacts correlate to transactions and income! For example, if you know and market to 75-200 people, you might expect to close 15 transactions. And that gives you an income between $50K-$100K. It only goes up from there!
