Get ready for 2023!

Join us on Wednesday, November 30th as we roll out the newest edition of Real Estate Dynamics, and get you set up for success!

There’s such a great feeling when you see the excitement of an individual who just completed – and passed - their real estate exam. It’s a new start - a new journey - and a new purpose.

While we get to help every new generation of REALTORS® get started on their career path, it is our instructors and teachers that fully prepare the individuals for actually earning their real estate license. That’s why we wanted to provide a comprehensive redevelopment of the number one selling “Real Estate Dynamics” textbook, and add the most updated information, graphics and teaching tools.

Join us for a terrific three-hour course taught by the individuals who have created and delivered a truly exceptional course that will help provide clarity, guidance and strategies for students to successfully pass the state exam and get ready to embark on an incredibly dynamic and rewarding career in real estate.

This course will take place one day prior to the Annual School Meeting, so plan to arrive early. This class provides 3 hours of Instructor CE.

As REALTORS® you must take NAR’s Code of Ethics course and have three hours of GA License Law when you renew your license, yet it doesn’t seem like agents incorporate these principles into their real estate business. This course looks at practical applications using roundtable discussions and case studies to ensure that you are conducting your business with the highest level of professionalism. 

Three areas of focus include: respect for the property, respect for the public, and respect for REALTORS®. Topics will include scheduling showings, promoting the property, writing offers, presenting multiple offers, communications and feedback, changing compensation, and discrimination.

Please Note: While this class may discuss NAR's Code of Ethics and Georgia License Law, it is not approved to satisfy either requirement with NAR or GREC.

Advocating for Short Sale Clients

Cost: $19.00

Credit Hours: 3

Course Description

Tactics that work with motivated, excited sellers don't always translate well when working with short sale sellers and short sale buyers. Toss lender approvals, junior lien holders, and inflexible timelines into the mix, and you end up with a whole new ball game. In a short sale transaction, the motivation for each party is different than the standard transaction, and as the professional in the scene, you need to adjust accordingly. This course speaks to your interaction with short sale sellers, and how you can help them through a tough process while diligently advocating on their behalf. We cover how to figure out an appropriate listing price, negotiate with the lender's representative, sort through debt settlement terminology, and carry the deal through to closing. We also look at the process from a buyer's agent perspective. Additional cautions, considerations, and fraud prevention tactics are required when advocating on behalf of these deal-seeking buyers.

Affordable Housing: Solutions for Homes and Financing

Cost: $19.00

Credit Hours: 3

Course Description

Affordable housing, or lack thereof, has been a discussion topic in the media, advocacy groups, and the political arena for years, and lately the chatter has become louder and more urgent. How bad is it? According to the leader of one housing coalition, “It’s not a housing crisis. It’s a housing catastrophe.” In this course, we’ll explore the impact that a lack of affordable housing has on individuals, families, and the real estate industry.

If it’s true that inside of every problem lies an opportunity, the opportunity here is huge. We’ll explore largely untapped solutions to locate housing and secure financing, even for low-income borrowers with less-than-stellar credit and little to no down payment. And in three “Bringing it Home” lessons, we’ll show how real estate professionals can become part of the solution for their clients and their communities.

Course highlights include:

  • Issues that contribute to the affordable housing crisis
  • Socio-economic impact of the affordable housing crisis
  • Demographics and geographics of affordable housing
  • Creative housing solutions
  • Loan programs with minimal and no downpayment options, down payment assistance programs, and creative financing solutions
  • How real estate licensees can be part of the affordable housing solution while building their business and improving their communities
