Equi-Trax announces BPO training and certification program
Jul 22, 2010

Equi-Trax Asset Solutions LP, a national collateral valuation provider offering broker price opinions (BPOs) and a line of hybrid valuation products delivered under a meticulous quality control process to bridge the gap between BPOs and full appraisals, has unveiled Equi-Trax University—an online training institute devoted to training real estate brokers to perform accurate BPOs. Equi-Trax University provides realtors an opportunity to learn new skills and expand their BPO businesses. The aim is to train brokers about BPO best practices and enable them to improve the quality of their work—and grow their income. Each broker listed on Equi-Trax Asset Solutions’ platform is rated, with the highest rated brokers receiving the most valuation assignments. Brokers who pass the course will see their ratings increase, and their referral base grow, assuming they do quality work. “We are one of just a few companies in the valuations space that performance rates it brokers,” said Guy Taylor, chief executive officer of Equi-Trax Asset Solutions. “But it’s our way to ensure that our brokers have the skills they need, and our clients receive the highest quality BPOs they require to support asset disposition decisions.” The BPO course, the first offering from Equi-Trax University, is available online, allowing students to complete the class at their own leisure.
