About Matthew Rathbun
I believe that the time a learner spends in the classroom should be invaluable. When the learner leaves the classroom they should have no doubt that the time was well spent. I understand that it’s challenging to carve out time from a busy schedule and it’s my mission to make the most of it.
I’ve been a licensed broker in Virginia since 2003 and I’ve been the Exec. Vice President of Coldwell Banker Elite, overseeing over 240 agents and staff since 2009. Prior to taking on leadership roles in my firms I spent years as a high-producing Realtor and still serve clients now. Those experiences give me a good understanding of the stresses and obstacles that agents face today.
I have been teaching for many years and currently teach various REALTOR® designations and a variety of broker-manager courses, technology and risk reduction programs. I also teach regularly for national franchises and provides consulting services for brokerages across the country.
I have served in various capacities in the Realtor Association and have been the recipient of the Virginia Association of REALTORS® Educator of the Year award, the Fredericksburg Area Association of REALTORS® Rookie of the year, Honor “Role”, President’s Award and the Code of Ethics Award.
I am an alumnus of the VAR Leadership Academy, a member of the Real Estate Educators Association and the Advisory Member of NAR’s Real Estate Buyers Agency Counsel.
As an author I contributes to many real estate industry magazines and on-line news venues.
I bring my experiences and humor to every classroom.
