Wildfire Risk in Real Estate - 3.00 Hrs (#C10569)
This course is iPad compatible. The purpose of this course is to help educate real estate professionals in high-risk fire states about the potential impact that wildfires have on real estate: land, structure, insurance, luxury homes, businesses, water resources, disclosures, safety, marketing homes in high-risk areas, the import of smoke and contaminant testing of wildfire on real estate, and more. The number of wildfires in the United States has increased dramatically during the last several years. The broad consequences to residences and businesses have made it paramount for real estate brokers, property managers, investors, and others involved in the real estate market to educate themselves and their clientele on the varying effects that wildfires, and the smoke contaminants they produce, can have on the safety and marketability of properties. 

Course Learning Objectives 

• Identify and understand the current working components as they apply to wildfire risk in real estate and recognize the impact that such variables can have on the overall real estate “eco-system”. 
• Explain and interpret the fundamentals that relate to land policies as a result of wildfire issues. 
• Describe the potential impact that wildfire issues can have on growing communities and substantiate how their immediate surroundings and the environment are affected when real estate usage influences zoning, design, and use. 
• Assess municipal guidelines in which wildfires and related concerns have dictated protocol. 
• Examine the varied links between real estate use, wildfire potential, and damage already incurred with the import of smoke and contaminant testing. 
• Use a wide-ranging spectrum of resource tools.

Finding Your Focus: Niche Marketing for Real Estate - 3.00 Hrs (#C10729)
This course is iPad Compatible. Many real estate agents operate in a certain specialty or “niche,” and perhaps with a little thought, many more would take the time to discover the benefits of carving out a niche for themselves. When agents market themselves as experts in a certain aspects of the industry, it not only helps the agent, but the client/customer as well. Customers need to know who the most knowledgeable, experienced professional in the area is. If there is an agent who specializes in the topic the customer needs assistance with, it is good for the industry if that customer is made aware of that agent. This course is designed to help agents identify a niche that they may want to specialize in and to be able to market themselves as an expert so that all customers are receiving the best care possible by an experienced expert in the industry.

Real Estate Safety: Protect Yourself and Your Clients - 3.00 Hrs (#C10730)

Real estate is generally a safe profession, but there are dangers that agents are exposed to on occasion. While the number of work related deaths and injuries are relatively low, they are not nonexistent. Female real estate agents are more likely to become victims than men; however, men are not immune to attack.

Think about it: real estate licensees often meet complete strangers by themselves, in vacant properties, at odd hours, with little or no background information on the potential client(s). When you think about it this way, the job can sound dangerous. There are some basic safety protocols real estate professionals can employ in the field. Though your brokerage may have a set of security procedures in place, many brokerages rely on the individual agent to establish their own safety measures.
