Greater Atlanta Realtors Are Taking Advantage Of FREE Continuing Education
Atlanta Marketing Director Jeff Holm and Recruting Manager Caroline Rich invite Georgia Realtors to the next FREE THURSDAYS CE Credit "Home Inspections" Class in Alpharetta, Thursday, Sept. 10, 2009.

CUMMING, GA., Every 2nd Thursday of the month Greater Atlanta Realtors have the opportunity to receive FREE education to keep their real estate license with the state current.  The no-cost curriculum comes courtesy of Crye-Leike, REALTORS.  The company has rolled-out a once-a-month Continuing Education (CE) Credit Class that focuses on the basics of buying and selling real estate.

 

“Every agent needs these continuing education credits to keep their license in good standing,” said Caroline Rich, Crye-Leike Recruiting Manager. “They hate to pay for them, especially now and it’s awesome that they can attend one of our programs and receive the credit they need for free.”

 

More than two dozen area Realtors attended the free course offered in August which focused on what agents need to know when placing properties for sale on the Atlanta Multiple Listing Service (FMLS).  In September the 2nd Thursday class is dedicated to Home Inspections.

 

“The benefits are many,” said Rich.  “It keeps agents abreast of the best tools to use in the business, the best vendors, best mortgage companies and just better ways to help them conduct their business.”

 

Crye-Leike has dubbed its educational program the “Knowledge Is Power” courses for Realtors.  And Crye-Leike’s Recruiting Manager Rich likes to stress the trickle-down benefit to buyers and sellers.

 

“When Realtors have more knowledge they can offer better service and demonstrate their value to clients,” said Rich.  “We’re all aware of the economy and we have an obligation to keep agents up to date on what’s important in this ever-changing real estate market.”

 

Here’s a look at the upcoming schedule of FREE THURSDAYS “Knowledge is Power” courses.
