Georgia Real Estate License Law Core Course (3 Credit Hours)


Georgia’s licensing law exists to protect the public from incompetent, dishonest licensees, establish minimum standards for the licensing of brokers and salespersons (including licensee education and qualifications), establish and uphold high standards within the profession, and ensure that the profession allows healthy and fair competition for its licensees.

This three-hour course covers these topics under Title 43, Chapter 40, of Georgia’s Statutes and Codes, and the rules and regulations of the Georgia Real Estate Commission, specifically under 520-1.

Advocating for Short Sale Clients (3 Hours)


Tactics that work with motivated, excited sellers don't always translate well when working with short sale sellers and short sale buyers. Add lender approvals, junior lien holders, and inflexible timelines into the mix, and you end up with a whole new ball game.

In a short sale transaction, the motivation for each party is different than the standard transaction, and as the professional in the scene, you need to adjust accordingly. This course speaks to your interaction with short sale sellers, and how you can help them through a tough process while diligently advocating on their behalf.  We cover how to figure out an appropriate listing price, negotiate with the lender's representative, sort through debt settlement terminology, and carry the deal through to closing. We also look at the process from a buyer's agent perspective. Additional cautions, considerations, and fraud prevention tactics are required when advocating on behalf of these deal-seeking buyers.  


Current Issues: Cooperation, Negotiation, iBuyers, and Disaster Preparedness (3 Hours)


Real estate is a dynamic industry, and that’s one of the reasons it’s an enjoyable, challenging, and interesting career. The industry is ever-changing to adapt to a transforming marketplace, and staying in step with those changes takes determination and a willingness to pivot. Current Issues: Cooperation, Negotiation, iBuyers, and Disaster Preparedness will help keep you on your toes. 

Hot Topics in Real Estate (3 Hours)


In this course you'll learn how to lawfully navigate  the high-risk areas of flood zone transactions, home inspections and data security and consumer privacy.

Preparing a Market Analysis - Best Practices (3 Hours)


Whether for a buyer or seller, the comparative market analysis, properly done, can mean several thousands extra dollars in their pockets, and can determine whether a deal can be struck at all. But because it’s such a well-worn tool, it’s tempting for a licensee to get complacent with the CMA, and “phone it in.”

Property Inspection Issues (3 Hours)


The inspection period is a big hurdle to jump over on the way to closing. The inspector’s job is to call out defects. The buyer agent’s job is to negotiate repairs. The seller agent’s job is to mitigate damage. It can sometimes be hard to hold a deal together.

Protecting your buyer as a buyer’s agent means understanding the importance of the home inspection contingency and its deadlines, and identifying the need for specialized inspections.

Protecting your seller as the listing agent means helping the seller understand disclosure obligations, prepare for the inspection, and respond to a buyer’s reasonable repair requests.

Residential Property Management Essentials (3 Hours)


For many real estate professionals, property management is a natural extension of their expertise. Whether you’re thinking about taking on your first property or looking to grow your property management business, this is a niche business requiring specialized skills and knowledge.

Explore the role of the property manager, common tenant issues, and federal laws.

Roadmap to Success - Business Planning for Real Estate Professionals (4 Hours)


More than 80% of real estate licensees leave the business within the first two years, and this is primarily due to a lack of understanding of what it takes to succeed. Of those who stay, very few earn a lucrative living at it.

Don't be that licensee.

Whether you're just launching your business or you think it's time to level up, this course will give you the tools to launch your career from a solid foundation, one that lets you know what you need to do today, this week, this month, this quarter, and this year to execute your well-considered business plan.

This course will show you how to take stock, create a vision, and gather the tools necessary to achieve that vision so you can create a professional, exemplary, referral-driven business that serves clients needs and exceeds client expectations.

For all real estate courses outside of Alabama, Florida, California, Georgia, Missouri & South Carolina.
