I am so proud of my students. As of yesterday, 19 of 22 students passed their State exams the first time. The stats are as of June 1st of this year. This pass ratio tells me that what I am teaching is what is on the State exam. It also tells me that the majority of my students retain what they learn in class.
Everyone has seen the permit numbers from the cities, towns and county in the local newspapers. Building is definitely on the rise. Just on my street alone there are five new homes being built. It is exciting to see the real estate market make a comeback.
In class I teach the information one needs to pass their exams and for a firm foundation as they enter into a new career. I seldom have the opportunity to pass on info that will assist the new real estate professional in actually selling real estate and this may not help anybody.
The last eight students from Winn School of Real Estate passed both their state and national portions of the state exam the first time. This is good news for the school but even better news for present and future students. We know that what is being taught is also what is on the state exams. I am very proud of all my students!
Everything I've read over the weekend indicated that interest rates are edging up. This is a case of "the glass is half empty or half full". It is true that higher interest rates may keep some buyers from buying... or maybe they will just buy less house. On the other hand, just the indication that rates are on the rise, will create urgency, and the buyers that are on the fence about buying will do so to get the lowest rate possible. No matter what happens with rates, people have to live somewhere and whether your glass is half empty or half full, real estate is dynamic industry. So hold to your glass... and get ready for a wonderful ride in your new career!
Today Bill O'Leary presented Leases, Landlords, Tenants and the Law. We had thirty-three (33) students! About a third of the students were from the public trying to get a grasp on the laws that surround this real estate specialty. Maybe they will hook-up with a property manager during the class.

Many of my students that just graduated at the end of May have already passed their Arizona State Exams and are on there way to starting their new careers as licensed real estate agents. I am very proud of all my students and wish them the very best.
The March class graduated this past week. I am still helping a few of the students to pass my final. The new class starts on Wednesday and it is my biggest class to date. We will be starting with 15 new students and 4 students from the past class. (They started mid-term). It is very exciting to see the school grow and become successful. Thank you to all my past students and good luck to all in your new careers.
My smart phone died this weekend and business would have come to an unpleasant halt if my husband had not saved my old smart phone. After a visit to Verizon my old phone was restored and a so called new phone was on the way to me. I received said phone yesterday only to discover that it was not a new phone it was a recycled one. The phone that died was only three months old. You'd think a large company like Verizon could afford to send a new phone out. But, not so. Needless to say, I am not happy with Verizon and let them know exactly how I felt. Of course, my ranting did no good. I am stuck with a used phone... it works fine... but that is not the point. Oh, well business goes on and all is well.
The hardest thing about writing a blog is the actual blogging. Finding something relevant to write about is challenging. So, in attempt to inspire, you can visit iLivingApp and learn how to receive motivational videos on your smart phone. The monthly investment is only $9.95 and in a time when you seldom receive a good value for your dollar... well, let's just say, the videos themselves are worth that and more. So, check it out and let me know what you think... I value your opinion.
