Our members have consistently left phenomenal feedback and requests for Instructor J. Gillam. It is our pleasure to offer a follow-up opportunity just in case you missed the last time!

In today’s market, brokers are so busy that more and more things fall between the cracks. One of the biggest areas that causes liability is lack disclosure and not handling the inspection process properly, resulting in complaints and law suits. There is a lot of misunderstanding of what a broker should be doing and the proper ways in which inspection / inspection issues should be handled and it is one of the least covered areas in real estate education. Don’t be left exposed! This course will help you learn ways to properly:

  • Disclose material defects during your listing
  • Understand how to avoid slandering a property and damaging your buyer or seller
  • Make disclosure to the opposing party
  • Handle Inspections (it probably is NOT what you have been doing!)
  • Handle Resolutions and Concessions or other creative options 

Don’t get trapped!
