Lifestyle and income potential are helping the industry attract an increasing number of university grads fresh out of school, despite a slowing real estate market, growing competition with the banks and a decline in mortgage-specialist defections, according to RMAI CEO Ron De Silva, hitting on the trend during the company’s aggressive recruitment campaign.

    University Grads straight out of school? Haven't I just read 3 or 4 articles about newbies seeking part time work as a larger share of channel business comes from refinances from an existing customer base?

    I have recently hired 5 associate brokers new to the industry, 3 of them are University Grads, one agent has a degree in finance and economics where the other 2 agents each have degrees in HR. Working with them is refreshing, they are young and have huge social networks and all very involved with social media. The average age in our office is under 30 years old.

    The advantage in being involved with social media is that your business will be around in 5 years.

    If you would like to discuss social media, I love talking about it, contact me anytime.
