How REALTORS® Can Expand Their Knowledge in 2024

To provide your clients with the most up-to-date information, it’s important to seek out opportunities for professional growth and development.

As a member of the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA), you have access to numerous resources to enhance your career. From the latest trends in real estate, exclusive economic data, to informative podcasts, blogs, and learning and development courses, make sure you’re taking advantage of everything available to you in 2024.

Learning and development opportunities

CREA’s Learning Hub is one of the best resources we have for our members and board and association staff, new and experienced, looking to expand their professional growth. From webinars and tutorials on CREA’s products and services, including CREA WEBForms® and DDF®, to a variety of courses and events, you have access to a wealth of growth opportunities. In addition, CREA is constantly adding new content, so be sure to check in periodically for new offerings. Or better yet, watch out for our quarterly Learning and Development newsletter!


REALTORS® are often on the move, and three years ago CREA decided to create a resource that would allow the REALTOR® community to learn about all things real estate while on the go. REAL TIME is a monthly podcast where we speak with experts on a variety of topics, as well as other REALTORS® in Canada, to bring anyone who’s interested in real estate more information. In the past we’ve had guests like Peter Mansbridge, Wes Hall and Lital Marom, and covered everything from artificial intelligence (AI) and sustainability to negotiation and mindset.

If you prefer listening to podcasts in video format, this year we’ll be offering the podcast in video as well. Stay tuned!
