Cost: Free

My State MLS, the first nationwide Multiple Listing Service of its kind with agents in all 50 states and Puerto Rico, is hosting free webinars in July, August and September for real estate professionals looking to grow their career and market their listings with an MLS that caters to their specific needs.

The webinars will introduce real estate professionals to My State MLS’s new features, including MLS Affiliate and MH Authority. It will also show attendees how to create video content with Facebook Live. The September webinars will give the audience a refresher on real estate basics, including how to market themselves and how to expand their business.

All webinars take place on Thursdays from 2-3 p.m. ET. Please see the webinar schedule and registration details below:

What is MH Authority? – July 22, 2-3 p.m. ET
Among a shortage of affordable housing options, buyers are increasingly turning to mobile and manufactured homes. However, most consumer real estate websites treat manufactured housing as an afterthought, and sites that are built for mobile/manufactured listings are outdated and riddled with inaccurate listings. That’s why My State MLS created MH Authority, the ultimate consumer-facing source for mobile/manufactured listings. It’s time to make the manufactured housing process easier for buyers, sellers, and professionals. David Mink, operations manager and national trainer for My State MLS, will be the moderator.

Going Live – Introduction to Facebook Live for Real Estate – Aug. 5, 2-3 p.m. ET
Creating video content is no longer an optional boost to a marketing strategy – it’s critical for success. Videos receive better social media engagement, increase email open rates, and can even improve SEO. With live streaming services like Facebook Live, real estate professionals don’t even need fancy gear or a lengthy script to get started. David Mink, operations manager and national trainer for My State MLS, will be the moderator.

Dear Dave – Advice for Your (Customer) Relationships – Aug. 19, 2-3 p.m. ET
Join My State MLS for sizzling tips on how to keep cool while trying to win new listings, ride the wave of showings and buyer inquiries and heat up your marketing strategy for the best summer yet. David Mink, operations manager and national trainer for My State MLS, will be the moderator.

Back to School Series – 2-3 p.m. ET
This September, it’s time to go back to school. Join My State MLS live every Thursday at 2 p.m. ET to brush up on the basics. Attendees will learn how to take their real estate career to the next level.
Sept. 2 – Continuing Education (CE) and Beyond: David Mink, operations manager and national trainer for My State MLS, will be the moderator.
Sept. 9 – Becoming A Broker: David Mink, operations manager and national trainer for My State MLS, will be the moderator.
Sept. 16 – Marketing Yourself: Amanda Sternklar, marketing director for My State MLS, will be the moderator.
