This meeting is one of many in-house training programs that Crye-Leike offers to its sales force. "Our goal is to ensure that our sales associates are bringing quality expertise to their transactions," said Harold E. Crye, chief executive officer of Crye-Leike. "Our in-house training programs also encourage our sales associates to meet and exceed buyers' and sellers' expectations."

"Sellers look to their listing agent primarily to help them find a buyer, shorten the time their house is on the market, and set the right selling price. Buyers continue to look to their sales associates primarily to help them find the right home, negotiate price and complete the paperwork. These are the basics of real estate transactions, but it's the basics that are sometimes taken for granted and need to be continually reinforced."

Crye-Leike has a network of over 2,800 sales associates and 74 branch and franchise offices located in 40 counties throughout a six-state southern region in Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi, Georgia, Kentucky and Florida.
