Presentations Provide Ongoing Performance Improvement Tips for Agents
Level Group, an innovative, full-service commercial and residential real estate brokerage company that introduced the 100% commission model in New York City, kicked off its Level Learning Series on September 15 with a presentation by Rochelle Lisner, president of Dynamic Business Growth.
Level Group’s Level Learning Series is a free, ongoing learning program for on-board Level Group agents and reflects the firm’s longstanding commitment to agent development. Chief Operating Officer Michael Barbolla has accelerated and focused the learning series to further assist the firm’s brokers in taking their performance to the next level. “Education is critical for agent development, whether they are new to the field or seasoned veterans,” Barbolla said. “This series is designed not as hypothesis or theory, but as nuts-and-bolts material that agents can customize and incorporate into their respective business models. Agents can start benefitting immediately from the knowledge shared.”
Lisner ‘s presentation, entitled “End the Year Strong,” guided the broker audience through creating the mindset and strategy to attract ideal clients and identify and overcome obstacles. “This event was both practical and motivating for me,” said Lee Williams, Sales Agent, Level Group. “I gained insight and tools to be more focused in goal-setting and to more effectively develop a fourth quarter strategy.”
The Level Learning Series calendar for the remainder of the year, entitled, “The Art of the Sale,” will focus on the listing side of real estate transactions. Featured topics and speakers include:
- Sept. 29: The Coop and Condo Approval Process Explained…Finally! - Justin Pfeifer, Wells Fargo

Many of the Level Learning Series speakers come from the ranks of Level Group’s seasoned, successful agents. “These are the best of the best within Level Group, providing peer training and giving their insider tips on how to move your business forward,” Barbolla said. “Agents love to learn from other agents because they intimately know the nuances of this complex business. And Level Group is fortunate to have agents who are generous with their knowledge and wanting to share with their colleagues what they have learned.”
