Environmental Issues


COURSE SYLLABUS

Course Description

Human activity has been impacting the environment for thousands of years. Industrial, chemical, and energy related waste materials have had an exponential effect on the environment. It has only been in the last 50 years or so that environmental laws have been enacted to protect public health, safety and welfare, as well as preserving natural resources. These and other issues have made environmental law more and more prevalent in real estate transactions and litigation, as opposing groups seek to contain and remediate costs associated with contaminated sites and similar issues.

Practical Brokerage Practices


COURSE SYLLABUS

Course Description

This course brings together many of the most important aspects of a real estate broker business.

Your manual should encompass all of the basics: a mission statement, personnel policies, and general procedures such as office attire, sales meetings, office conduct, terminations, and vacations. It is also important to include policies and procedures specific to real estate.

Code of Ethics


COURSE SYLLABUS

Course Description

Realtors should recognize that the interests of the nation and its citizens require the highest and best use of the land and the widest distribution of land ownership. They require the creation of adequate housing, the building of functioning cities, the development of productive industries and farms, and the preservation of a healthful environment.

Such interests impose obligations beyond those of ordinary commerce. They impose grave social responsibility and a patriotic duty to which Realtors should dedicate themselves, and for which they should be diligent in preparing themselves. Realtors, therefore, are zealous to maintain and improve the standards of their calling and share with their fellow Realtors a common responsibility for its integrity and honor.

This course outlines the standards of practice expected of licensed realtors and provides several case studies to illustrate those standards.
