Joi Bostic

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.
