Meet the [Republic Title] Teacher with Annette Carvalho-Jordan

In celebration of Back to School season, we want to take this opportunity to highlight Republic Title’s teacher/trainer Annette Carvalho-Jordan. Annette has been teaching for over 25 years and is known as an industry expert in real estate, social media, marketing trends, and new technology to help real estate agents with their business. Join us as we “Meet the Teacher” with Annette and learn more about her favorite classes, funniest moment teaching, and her favorite tech tools.  

  1. What classes do you find the most helpful/beneficial for agents?  Considering the extensive list of classes we offer, the most beneficial would really depend on the expertise level of the agent and their specific needs.  However, some universally beneficial topics might include:  1) Mastering the MLS.  Republic Title offers everything from Basic to Advanced Matrix classes, and we dive even deeper with additional classes on the MLS Dashboard including Stats and Lead Generation.  2) zipForm/DocuSign/Authentisign.  Facilitating digital transactions is essential, however these tools continue to change and evolve. Agents must know these tools inside and out to have the confidence needed to push through deals effectively and efficiently. 3) Social Media and other trending Tech like ChatGPT.  In today’s digital era and with AI having a stronger presence now more than ever, staying up to date is critical. Our classes help agents leverage various social media and trending tech to market their services, engage with potential clients, and stay updated with industry trends.
  2. What are the benefits of taking Republic Title education classes?  I think it boils down to 3 important things:  1) Expert Guidance: Our classes are led by industry veterans who have a wealth of knowledge and experience in real estate and understand how it applies to the day-to-day tasks of a real estate professional; 2) Practical Application: The courses we offer at Republic Title are designed to be hands-on and practical. We understand that the best way to learn is by doing, so our classes give agents the opportunity to practice their skills in real-world scenarios; 3) Stay Ahead of the Curve: The real estate industry is constantly evolving, especially with advancements in technology. Our classes help agents stay updated with the latest tools, trends, and best practices in the industry.
  3. What are the three classes you think every agent should take at least once?  I truly believe that all our classes offer unique benefits and insights. Each course has been carefully designed and materials updated/revised to reflect the most recent developments to meet the evolving needs of real estate professionals. I recommend that every agent explore the full range of classes we offer (whether that be a tech class, or an attorney led class) at least once to truly maximize their potential in this dynamic industry.
  4. Any funny or interesting stories from one of your classes?  In one of my classes, I was teaching the use of mapping through one of the CMA tools. I was showing the mapping feature and I accidentally entered the coordinates for a location halfway across the world instead of a local property. The whole class had a good laugh (including me) when we ended up with our subject property being in Hawaii and our comps being in Texas!  It turned into a great teaching moment of the importance of double-checking all your input. 
  5. How long have you been with Republic Title and what led you to being in the education team?  I have been with Republic Title for 9 years (10 years in February 2024).  My journey towards the education team was driven by my passion for both the real estate industry and teaching for over 25 years.  I realized that technology plays a significant role in the real estate industry, and I wanted to leverage that in my career and help others. Joining the education team at Republic Title allowed me to do exactly that. Now, I can share my knowledge, learn from others, and contribute to the professional growth of real estate agents in North Texas.
