Class Description

Many people find success, happiness and financial security in a rewarding real estate industry career. If you've chosen real estate as a career, you're a self-starter, empowered by the opportunity for unlimited growth. That's why we've created a sales prelicense course that fits your goals, so you can ace the test and then focus on building your business. The best part? We go beyond test prep by relating the material to real world experiences you should know to get a head-start, whether you're going to be involved in residential or commercial real estate.

With our premium course, you'll explore land use control, property ownership rights and transfers, contracts, financing, deeds, leasing, appraisal, fair housing and more. Plus, you'll get access to the essentials that you need to master the exam — and beyond.

The Capitus Real Estate Learning Center has been providing outstanding industry education longer than any real estate school in Georgia. The first-time examines passing rate of the Capitus students continues to be among the highest in Georgia. For more information, click here.

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.

Understanding the Client is as important as understanding the Real Estate. Most brokers spend 90% of their time figuring out the sticks and bricks and very little time knowing why their client has employed them. This course will supply the tools to the broker to be more professional, through the use of strategic client questioning, listening and understanding. The proper use of questioning will give the professional broker a new understanding of his/her client and open new alternatives to marketing the listed real estate.

AGREE members, to register, please contact CAPITUS at 404.252.6768. If you do not need CE, there is a $10 discount. Lunch is included in the registration price.
