How to Save 57% on Real Estate Continuing Education

How to save 57% on real estate continuing education.  Other than price, what else do real estate agents look for?  Here are other factors I considered.


* Topic


* Location


* Date/Time


* Instructor


Deals fall through after all the time, effort and money spent on acquiring a buyer, for two basic reasons:  financing and appraisals.  Because of this, I would consider either one a timely topic.  I’m not qualified to offer training on appraisals; I am qualified in the area of financing.


TOPIC – The Inner World of Mortgage Lending.  Source material approved by the North Carolina Commissioner of Banks and used to train mortgage loan originators.  Four hours of critical information has been extracted from the 24-hours of course material used to train loan officers.  Course pedigree:  We were there on Day 1 when this training became a requirement.  Material has evolved as changes occurred.  It’s not written by researchers who never originated a mortgage.


Your time is valuable.  This is taken into consideration in dealing with the location and date/time factors.


Location & Date/Time – A new twist is offered here.  Yes, I have scheduled classes you can sign up for.  In addition, I’m open to come to you and schedule private training sessions.


Who teaches the course?  Normally a corporate trainer is the instructor.  Personal knowledge not a requirement.  Many trainers do not live the material.


INSTRUCTOR – This is awkward – talking about myself.  I don’t mean to brag, but I will offer my basic qualifications.  I’ve lived through the changes that led to today’s mortgage environment.  Been on the firing line since the 1980s.  Still there today.  Training new mortgage loan originators – I’ve been an instructor since this became a requirement.  I’m available for questions after the course is completed.


How do you save 57%?  Offer is subject to withdrawal without notice.  The fee for attending my 4-hour course is $59.  Bring a fellow agent and its $50 for both of you or $25 each.  A 57% saving.  Each additional agent you bring can also attend for $25.


Obviously, I’m not motivated by money.  Just trying to cover my expenses.  I feel strongly that this topic is very important today and that I’m qualified to present it.


What factors do you consider when choosing source of your continuing education?
