2016 Comes with Changes... Some Exciting!

by Betty Winn on 10/23/15

It has been a while since I posted anything to this blog. Now that we are in the last quarter of the year plans have begun for 2016 which is a great excuse to write a post for the blog.
We want to expand. But, anyone who has seen our location knows there is really no where to expand, physically speaking that is. How to expand was the question at hand and the answer was to add a morning session to our schedule.
I can teach nine hours a day if I have to but I am sure that would get old, fast and the students would suffer as well as myself. So, the answer is to hire a few new instructors to take on the new session.
We are happy to announce that Jim Rouse, an associate broker with C. Marshall and Associates has stepped up to the plate and is now an instructor with our school. We have three more brokers/associate brokers who will be coming on board before the end of the year to assist with our expansion.
It is always the people that make a company anyway not the bricks and mortar. Talking about bricks and mortar, our facility, located in the Stepping Stones Community Center on 2nd street in Prescott Valley, just got a new roof and coat of paint. Now when I have to give directions to our classroom, I can just say "We are on the South side of 2nd Street... it is the large green building with the red trim." Very nice!
Once our morning session ( 9 to 12)  kicks in on February 17th, students can triple up with the afternoon and evening sessions and complete their 90 hours in about 2 1/2 weeks or just stick with the mornings and complete it in 7 1/2 weeks.
Not only are we accommodating folks that need to be home in the afternoon for the children but this allows a fast tract option that is not being offered in the Prescott/Prescott Valley area.
We have also added the three Broker Management Clinics that Brokers and Managing Brokers are required to take to renew their licenses, to our growing selection of continuing education classes. Real Estate Sales people can take any one of the sessions for their Commissioner Standards credit.
Anyway, we are offering the all three BMCs on December 11, 2015. You can take all three or two or just one. And, yes I am teaching the entire nine hours.
Watch for new classes throughout 2016. I am sure that our new instructors will want to teach their passions and what a great venue to accommodate them, Winn School of Real Estate, your local real estate school.

Great class to take if you are interested in any aspect of the real estate business, I am almost finished with my 90 hours and the money you pay is worth every penny.

I am truly enjoying the real estate licensing course taught by Betty Winn. Not only is she a great teacher but we also have an awesome mix of people in the classroom. Each one brings something to the table with their various backgrounds and personalities. I look forward to each class!
