It is a new year.. Up your game!

You can get certified to teach clockhours!  

Who can get certified?  If you want to teach real estate brokers about something real estate related that will improve their business!  This can include brokers, lenders, title, home inspectors, stagers, and people in marketing and sales.

What are the requirements?  You need to have 3+ years experience in a real estate related field. Then you must take the Instructor Development Workshop a 2 day class that is 15 total hours.  Natalie teaches it almost monthly.  There are three classes this winter. Tuition is $200.

What will I teach?  You must teach under an approved school.  I have one.. there are others in the state.  If you teach under my school, there are about 80 classes you can teach. Or, I can help you write your own signature class.

Who will come to classes?  You can teach one on one or a large audience.  Ever real estate agent needs a minimum of 30 clockhours every two years.  There is a need!  There are only a few people teaching.  You can fit it in your schedule… just like you fit the dental cleanings on your calendar.. only this is more fun!  People are sick of computer classes!  (but they like my online ones!)

Will I make money?  There is not very much money in education in our country!  Bu, there are opportunities depending on your business plan.  You can also sell your services as a coach, lender, or title rep.  You will also gain some recognition and credibility for teaching that will help build your business!   If you are a real estate broker, you can tell your prospects that you are qualified to teach the competition!

Instructor Development Workshop

Thursday, Jan 25rd from 10-3pm  in Federal Way at Cross Country Mortgage.  Day 2 of the class will be scheduled with the participants! Tuition is $200.

February class date and location will be available soon!

Why Become a Managing Broker?

There are two real estate licenses in Washington State.  The real estate Broker license is what a person receives after taking the pre-license classes and the Broker exam.  Most real estate agents work under a Broker’s license for their career… whether it be for a year or for decades.

The Managing Brokers license shows that the Broker has a higher knowledge base.  The requirements include;  having 3 years experience, taking 3 classes that are 30 clockhours, and a Managing Broker’s exam.

So, why take the classes and sit through a test?  There are a number of reasons.

You might want to take your business to another level and work in some aspect of management.  You might want to oversee a new real estate broker, manage a team of brokers, or be assigned a branch manager position by a Designated Broker.

You might want to open your own office.  It could be one where you recruit a number of agents or work as a solely independent broker.  Having a Managing Brokers license gives you that opportunity.  You may want to open a new office with a different set of benefits for real estate brokers. Think about how you may want to slow down and work out of your home after a decade, for example.  You could work your own business under your own shingle.

You may want to have that title on your business cards to show your prospects that you do have a higher degree of knowledge.  You don’t automatically have any higher degree of liability, but you can explain to your prospects that you are qualified to own or run or manage other brokers including your competition.

You will learn and get to know the laws and rules and ethical issues that arise in an office.  You will probably be able to use the material you learn in the classes to just be a better broker!

The classes her on my website will get you prepared for the Brokerage Management exam.  Just Click… they are pdf.  Read the material.  Answer the quizzes and the Final Exam in the workbook.  Scan back.  My classes include all the topic areas on the test outline.

Email me and I will put you on my list of agents taking the classes and so I can follow up with you!  Note… less that 30% of those that take the test pass it!  So chat with me!  It is not your experience or knowledge… honestly.. my opinion… the test “sucks.”  Take the practice test before you take any classes…. so you will know how to study!  Click on Managing Brokers page here for more info~

If you have any questions… … just email me …   Thanks, Natalie
