    This course is iPad compatible. More than anything else, becoming a real estate professional requires a dedication and commitment to exemplary levels of professionalism. The consuming public relies on and is entitled to real estate licensees who adhere to high standards of ethics, legal compliance and the protection and promotion of the consumer’s interests.

    Over the last several years, the profession of real estate has changed dramatically. The introduction of new tools, statutes and consumer resources has forced real estate professionals to keep up with the increasing needs, demands and expectations of the consuming public. Online Internet sites and ease of access to information have created a new breed of consumers who are more knowledgeable, demanding and discerning in their interactions with real estate professionals.

    It is the mission of the South Carolina Real Estate Commission to ensure that the consuming public is protected and that the levels of service delivered by South Carolina real estate licensees adhere to standards and rules that have been enacted to protect the interests of those who come in contact with real estate professionals. As markets and consumer knowledge and needs have shifted, so too must the knowledge, competence and professionalism of real estate licensees. This course was designed to increase awareness, heighten levels of professionalism and minimize the issues and complexities that result when standards are not met. Moreover, the course will encourage you to prepare before you show up at the starting gate.

    The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The next best time is now. ~ Chinese Proverb

    This Chinese proverb rings true about credit reports as well. Ideally, a homebuyer has been preparing to buy a home for years: saving a healthy down payment, eliminating debt, and boosting their credit score as much as possible. Unfortunately, many buyers in the market have not had the opportunity to do such things, so what can they do now? Being able to counsel people on improving their financial standing can not only improve your service to your current clients, it can also be used as a marketing tool to attract and help new clients!
