Faster Not Always Best!by Betty Winn on 03/16/14
I was speaking with a potential student yesterday. She was sharing that she knew several brokers in town and had already interviewed with some. During one interview she reported that the broker told her that the 90 hour course was strictly to get them through the testing and they would not really need any information provided in class for their careers in real estate. So, he indicated that taking the nine-day fast tract class in the Phoenix Valley would be sufficient. I suggest all real estate brokers encourage potential real estate licensees to seek out the best education available. Most often your local school is the best choice. Yes, we do prepare the licensee candidate for passing their exams. We also teach them real estate terms and concepts they will need in this business. The Arizona Department of Real Estate requires us to teach a very robust curriculum in preparing the student not only for their exam but for their new careers. This education is the basis for everything that comes in the future. Brokers should be encouraging potential licensees to take the best, not the fastest education.
