Agents complete Smart Home Technology Course

Amy Stiefel-Fresh, Melissa Logue, Craig Shellenberger, Kari Shellenberger, Sarah Russ, Aimee Debenedictis, LaSonya Oney and John Bohne; independent sale associates affiliated with Coldwell Banker Premier in Rehoboth Beach and Lewes, Delaware announced their completion of the Smart Home Technology Education Course offered by Coldwell Banker University. Developed by Coldwell Banker Real Estate, LLC and CEDIA, the global trade association for the home technology market, the course is offered exclusively to independent contractor agents affiliated with the Coldwell Banker® network. The curriculum provides an extensive look into the evolution of home technology, with a focus on how smart home products are changing the way we live in and interact with our homes.

This course equipped these professionals with the skills needed to advise clients interested in buying and selling smart homes or installing their first smart home products. As smart homes become increasingly sought after in Sussex County, agents recognize how essential it is to educate themselves to help clients make informed decisions about smart home technology.

“Smart home technology is entering the mainstream and quickly becoming a staple in homes across the country,” said Bruce Plummer, Broker and Chief Executive Officer. “The Smart Home Technology course will help agents sharpen their knowledge on the smart home and the products available, which in turn will allow them to better inform their clients when making smart home decisions.”

 A Coldwell Banker survey of Americans found that more than half (54 percent) of homeowners surveyed would install smart home products if they were selling their home and knew that doing so would make it sell faster. In response to this, Coldwell Banker Real Estate earlier this year released an official smart home definition to educate real estate professionals, home buyers and home sellers in consort with CNET, the world’s largest and most trusted online source of consumer technology news and reviews.
