NAPLES, Fla. – Golf Life Navigators (GLN) – the world’s only virtual marketplace for consumer-to-club connections – has deployed a series of educational programs for real estate agents who wish to better understand basic private club dynamics and possess a unique set of credentials to connect with golf home buyers.
“The impact of golf on the U.S. economy last year was an astounding $84.1 Billion-dollars. $9.3 Billion was tied directly to real estate,” says Travis Saxton, Senior Vice President of T3 Sixty. “With golf and real estate converging, consumers, real estate agents and club officials are going to benefit for years to come with their connection to Golf Life Navigators ecosystem.”
In the United States, there are currently 1.3 million licensed real estate agents and 16,300 golf courses. The Golf Life Navigators Certified Real Estate Agent Program® was designed in an effort to instruct real estate agents on the basics of golf – key terminology, private club dynamics and best practices to communicate with membership officials, etc.
“Since 2017, when our golf educational programs began, we have taught and golf certified 400-plus real estate agents,” says Jason Becker, Chief Executive Officer of GLN. “Popularity for this unique knowledge base and credentials has grown tremendously with requests arriving from agents across the country. Our goal was to create a virtual setting where all agents would have access to this niche opportunity. The goal was met in February with our programming now LIVE for all, 24/7/365.”
The Golf Life Navigators Certified Real Estate Agent Program® will help bridge the gap between club officials and real estate agents for the benefit of consumers. GLN’s data shows 75-80% of consumers plan to combine their search of club and home. Buyers say, “It is a 50/50 split” on which is more important, “the club or the home.” GLN predicts the program will offer a more efficient buying experience for consumers. In addition, a coordinated effort between club officials and real estate agents leverages a basis of shared communication, knowledge and professionalism.
