This course is iPad compatible. How do you know when you've crossed the line? As real estate agents we work hard, we have our client's interest at heart, and we want to do well. But every transaction is different, and in our attempt to do well for our clients, we sometimes do wrong?
An agent at an open house could be instrumental in protecting the seller's valuable assets, but still commit an ethics violation. In this course, you will learn how to defend yourself if your harmless postcard is used as evidence that you've jumped the listing.
Rules, laws, and ethics all come to a conclusion in our case studies. Make sure that next year you're not reading about your own case.

This course is iPad compatible. An old adage in real estate is, "You have to List, to Last". Today, that might have to be modified to read, "You have to List, to Excel". Listings have always been the primary way to survive in the business, and they are the only way to have dozens of transactions and a six figure income. Buyers take too much time. Sellers are time intensive for the first few days, but then all the other agents in the market work to sell your product, while you obtain more listings. Using this method can release the agent to collect a hundred listings or more a year. Some administrative help will streamline the closings. This course prepares you, the agent, to master the listing contract. How much more business could you have if you have mastered Protected Buyers, Extensions, REO Properties and alternative real estate business models?

I hope that I can write an offer that helps you. But if not, we'll just continue writing offers until I get it right." No. As a professional we need to have mastered the tools of our industry. And for real estate agents the primary tools are the Offer to Purchase and the Listing Contract. Course 1 of this series dealt with the Listing. This Course 2 brings clarity and mastery to the Offer. Two of the many points: how to write the "worst" financing contingency and how to structure the appraisal and many more.

This course is iPad compatible. "How's you like to make some easy money?" sounds like a pickup line from the Nigerian Prince Internet scam to a sleazy bar on King Street. And there are enough people with enough need to make that line effective. For the real estate licensee reducing our risk to be the victim or the perpetrator of a "get rich quick scheme" is the purpose of this Course B on risk reduction strategies. That we should not fall victim to someone's sweet talk and allow ourselves liability and litigation and shame in our real estate practice might be our first motive. The rules we work under, designed as consumer protection, help protect the public from us. Everyone benefits when real estate professionals understand the rules, play by those rules, and help us all to enforce the rules. And, yes, there is money to be made.

This course is iPad compatible. Your alarm clock is staring back at you, it’s green glowed eyes searing it time; 3:30 AM. You can’t sleep because your mind can’t rest. There must be something you can do to salvage that deal. You have already put months into working with those buyers; you earned their trust, you care about them and their outcome. But the inspection report has scared them to the point of remorse – maybe they should just stay where they are – maybe this is sign that they aren’t meant to move.
And your own incriminations – could you have drafted their offer better, protect them better, clarify the terms so that they have the protections they need and the information to be brave? What could you do? What can you do?
Mastering the inspection and test provisions of your offers will save you time and money. Course C – Inspections and Testing in Wisconsin Transactions is your key to success.

As consumers we would be outraged if the produce manager of the local grocery store didn't know the difference between the various fruits and vegetables in his department. If his mastery of pricing is restricted to general categories or decisions based on color; all apples would be treated the same and apples and strawberries and grapes would all be priced the same. Our customers expect real estate licensees to know the forms and the purpose of all transaction documents. Agents who list or sell condominiums must develop a specific understanding and talent for that transaction type. This CE Course on Wisconsin Condominiums will give you the understanding needed to master the listing and sale of condominiums.
