Day 2 (Feb 24) Residential Contracts: Many buyers and sellers do not understand how they are represented in a real estate transaction. The term “agency” is used in real estate to help determine what legal responsibilities your real estate professional owes to you and other parties in the transaction. There are agents, and then there are agents. Yes, it sounds confusing. That’s because the term “agent” is often used in a casual manner, referring to any real estate practitioner. However, agent also refers to someone with whom a customer has established a formal agency relationship-someone who represents their best interests in a real estate transaction and owes that client fiduciary responsibilities. Students will learn the nature of the agent/client relationship including fiduciary responsibility and how to handle confidential information.

Day 4 (March 3) Diversity & Fair Housing: This class teaches students to analyze U.S. demographic information to better interpret the impact of current trends on the real estate industry. Examining cultural stereotypes, assumptions, and biases will increase awareness of such thoughts and attitudes and show how to value individual differences. Learning the goals of the One America Principles and Fair Housing Laws and how inclusion and diversity sensitivity can increase business, students will summarize personal goals, objectives, and strategies to create a business plan that incorporates diversity. Students will discuss effective communication styles and how to provide equal service to clients in multicultural local markets and apply an increased level of understanding of cultural attitudes, practices, and communication differences, as well as business norms and etiquette when dealing with clients.
