Startup 'games' continuing education for agents

  • A Seattle area startup has created a game that agents can play to complete their continuing education requirements to renew their license.
  • So far, the game is only available to agents in Washington state, but will expand to Oregon and other states over the next six months.
  • The Washington Association of Realtors has endorsed the product, according to the startup.

When real estate agents hear the words “continuing education,” the word “fun” may not spring instantly to mind. So a Seattle area-based startup has launched an online simulation — essentially, a game — that agents can use to complete the education requirements to renew their licenses.
