Class Description

Ignorance of the law is not an excuse for break it. Not being aware of acceptable real estate practices and procedures does not prevent license revocation. Most practicing real estate professionals took the prelicense course a long time ago. The purpose of this course is to review specific laws, rules and practices that guide the real estate industry in Georgia. Join the fun of competing in a game while refreshing yourself about crucial information that guides our work.

This program meets the requirements of the GREC mandated license law course. Topics covered include trust account requirements, unfair trade practices, brokerage relationships, firm management responsibilities, advertising, handling real estate transactions, notification requirements, and licensees acting as principals.

Please Note: If you have previously taken this course, the Georgia Real Estate Commission requires 366 days before you can receive credit.

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).
