Professionalism Exchange: The Art of a Professional Closing

Seminar Details

Closing is often the last opportunity to leave a good impression on the buyer and seller as well as the other professionals present (e.g. coop agent, title agent and lender). It’s also a time of high anxiety, and unexpected issues. How can REALTORS manage the emotions and last-minute challenges that pop up at closing in an appropriate and professional yet crowd-pleasing manner? In this exchange, our panel will provide attendees the opportunity to explore things such as: setting expectations and using private caucus to manage an effective and efficient closing.


Professionalism encompasses a REALTOR®’s obligation to the Code of Ethics, license law and the common sense courtesies that make the relationship between clients, customers and other REALTORS® work. Suburban West’s “Professionalism Exchange” is an opportunity for members to come together to share and evaluate concerns about professionalism. The “Professionalism Exchange” is a continuation of SWRA’s “Pathways to Professionalism” efforts which began in 2008 with a 15-minute video program.

The Exchange is a live forum. Each forum will be 90 minutes in length. Each session will open with a brief update on any new information from NAR, PAR, the state Real Estate Commission. The remainder of each session will be open to members in attendance who wish to share issues with their peers. The forums will be moderated by a panel of REALTORS.
