Upcoming Courses

  • PA Required Topic: Broker Supervisory Duties, Policies & Risk Management (3.5 Hours) Saturdays
    Apr 13 – Apr 13
    Sa 9am-1pm

    It’s a broker’s duty to provide adequate and reasonable supervision to licensees. State laws vary, but in all states, brokers are required to supervise the people who work for them. This extremely specific requirement makes the broker responsible for the actions of salespeople who work for her. This responsibility extends to violations of the state licensing laws, fair housing laws, and illegal or fraudulent activities.

    Pennsylvania requires adequate and reasonable supervision of course. But what is adequate and reasonable supervision? What duties does the broker have?

    It’s not only essential for the broker to be aware of these responsibilities. All licensees need to understand and have a reasonable expectation as to the supervision they can and should expect and deserve. This course will review the broker’s responsibilities, highlighting key aspects of licensing law and rules/regulations.

  • Ethics, Your Promise Of Professionalism (NAR Ethics) (3.5 Hours) Saturdays
    Apr 13 – Apr 13

  • Distress & Blight & Stigma, Oh My! (7 Hours) Full Days
    Apr 17 – Apr 17
    We 9am-5pm

    This continuing education course presents definitions, characteristics, and legal issues that pertain to homes that are distressed, blighted, or stigmatized.

    The course will review procedures of short sales and foreclosures, looking at legalities, as well as focusing on how licensees can best represent their clients who are facing foreclosure or considering a short sale. We will then explore the history of blight within society to better understand the socioeconomic factors that play into the concept of blight removal and urban renewal. Act 135 of 2008 gave Pennsylvania the ability to take conservatorship of property that is blighted, and we will look at the aspects of that law, discussing the benefits and negatives of the act.

    Some of the stigmatized issues we will look at are homes that have been affected by events or location at or near the property. Stigma is not legal bound to be disclosed in Pennsylvania, so these can present a tough situation for licensees when working with clients: what do we need to disclose, what can we not disclose, and how can we best serve our clients when their property is affected by these factors?

    For all of the topics, this course will look at concerns surrounding environmental factors, legal factors, disclosure concerns, and marketing strategies to benefit clients while still protecting consumers.

    These properties often come with a unique set of concerns, but armed with the right tools, real estate professionals can work with clients and consumers to address blighted, distressed, and stigmatized properties in appropriate, legal, and beneficial ways.

  • Mastering the Oil Heat Conversation - Selling Oil Heat Listings (3.5 Hours) Mornings
    May 1 – May 1
    We 9am-1pm

    Licensees are out there on the front lines fielding tough questions about escalating prices, the impact global unrest has on supply, and what the future holds for the oil-heated homeowner.

    Real talk, up-to-date conversational discussion on what measures the oil heat industry already has in place to bring prices back down to sustainable low-normal levels will be covered, and students will walk away from this course seeing oil heat in a brand-new light, all while being better able to communicate how “yesterday’s” oil is transitioning into the revolutionary renewable fuel of the future.

    Armed with this knowledge, licensee’s will be better able to tackle the issue of listing and selling an oil-heated property.

  • CE: Client Servicing in a Tough Market (3.5 Hrs) Afternoons
    May 1 – May 1
    We 1pm-5pm

    Tough markets require a new skill set for agents in order to ensure ability to continue high-level client service. Whether the market is a “buyers market,” “sellers market,” or “dry market,” clients need to be able to depend on their agent to have skills to navigate as many foreseeable markets that can arise. The challenges that are presented during the times of a tough market are greatly different than those of a booming market, and clients rely on their agents to know the challenges (and be able to surmount them!).
