I would have thought that we could have eliminated these challenges by now. After having completed my Sexual Harassment Prevention training myself just a couple of weeks ago, a program which is mandated by the state of California, it piqued my interest to find out how many states require sexual harassment prevention training.

WAV Group’s 2023 Broker Technology Study captured broker technology usage patterns and their perceived impact on business and agent success. Technology plays a significant role in the success of brokers and MLSs in today’s real estate market. While brokers are generally supportive of their technology stacks, they do believe that technology is not being leveraged to its fullest extent.
