Class Description

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.

Practice makes perfect... If you’ve completed your salesperson Pre-license course, Capitus offers a 2-day weekend "super" CRAM course on a monthly basis. This challenging weekend review is designed to assist you in passing the school or state exams. Veteran real estate educators will guide you through a series of lectures, practice tests and Q&As to enhance your knowledge in areas that you find difficult. Over the 2 days, you'll be given numerous quizzes on all the topics that make up the Salesperson Prelicense course. The instructor will review the questions and answers and provide you an opportunity to discuss critical content that you may not understand.

This course is optional for Salesperson students but you are strongly advised to take advantage of this opportunity, designed to push you over the top on your school and state exams. Cram Course classes frequently fill up early and pre-registration is required. No educational credit is given for this program. However, it may be used to make up hours that you missed in your classroom course if needed.

Practice makes perfect... If you’ve completed your salesperson Pre-license course, Capitus offers a 2-day weekend "super" CRAM course on a monthly basis. This challenging weekend review is designed to assist you in passing the school or state exams. Veteran real estate educators will guide you through a series of lectures, practice tests and Q&As to enhance your knowledge in areas that you find difficult.

Instructor Bio

Joi Bostic

Since Joi Bostic was a little girl, everyone around her would say that she would grow up to teach others. Although she would hold classes with her dolls and stuffed animals, she resisted and protested against a career as a teacher. Her formal education had her on track to enter corporate America in the area of marketing management. However, after college, Joi finally followed her “true calling” and entered the classroom in 1988. Since then she has taught college credit courses, traveled the country delivering workshops and seminars and designed hundreds of courses and workshops. Joi has earned a reputation for Real Estate training as being a thorough, easy-to-understand instructor with humor and practical application. Recently, Joi completed and was awarded the REEA Gold Standard Instructor Certification. Joi’s goal in instructing is to ensure that learning takes place in an enjoyable safe environment and each student walks away with an understanding of the material. In 2021, Joi received the Mary Shern Educator of the Year Award by the Georgia Real Estate Educators Association (GREEA).
