Posted by Suzanne Boose — January 26, 2011
January 2011 – Doug Ayers, President and CEO of Chicagoland real estate brokerage Koenig & Strey Real Living, announced that Darla Terrell has been named Director of Recruiting & Agent Development.
“Darla been a driving force in creating education and development programs that are exactly what agents need to grow their business in this market,” said Ayers. “At a time when many other brokerages do not have the resources to devote to agent development and training, a program like this is a key part of attracting both new and experienced agents. I am very pleased to have her leading this initiative as well as a top-notch group of trainers.”
Terrell has spearheaded Koenig & Strey’s innovative Agent Development initiative launched at the beginning of 2010. The Agent Development team is a group of six practicing real estate professionals focused on a real world approach to agent education. Trainers conduct weekly in-office sessions, webinars, one-on-one coaching as well as classes that teach the fundamentals of the business in a collaborative classroom setting.
“Koenig & Strey is really committed to the success of our agents. Helping agents to grow their business by using the technology tools and resources provided by the company is tremendously rewarding,” said Terrell. “This year we face a tremendous opportunity as all Illinois real estate agents complete increased broker licensing requirements. We are dedicated to building a program that will make the transition as smooth as possible, allowing the agents to remain focused on their clients.”
Well-known in the north suburban real estate community, Terrell has been a Vice President and branch manager at Koenig & Strey locations on the North Shore since 1998; she is a Director and past Chairman of the North Shore Barrington Association of Realtors.
