2019-03-14T12:48:23-04:00

March 13, 2019   It may be a cliché, but when we have three real estate licensing classes every month, we get to see many different personality types. Imagine everybody from a person who just graduated high school to a teacher nearing retirement, and from police officers and firefighters to moms who want to sell [...]

Counting my Blessings

2019-03-09T17:21:36-05:00

December 20, 2018 This message has nothing to do with getting one’s NJ real estate license or our real estate school or buying and selling houses. Then again, maybe it has something to do with everything we do, both as individuals and as real estate professionals. As a child, growing up in a Salvation Army [...]

Realtors®? Brokers? Is there a difference, and why should I care?

November 26, 2018 Last week, 12 people graduated from the broker pre-licensing class at our Cherry Hill real estate school. That very afternoon, a person called to enquire about getting her New Jersey real estate license. “Aren’t all Realtors® brokers?” she asked. It made me realize how little members of the public understand about those [...]

2019-03-09T21:17:30-05:00

November 8, 2018 A couple of weeks ago, we had a class of new students in our Cherry Hill real estate licensing class. “Why do you want to become real estate agents?” I asked them on the first evening. The answers were as varied as the makeup of the students. Some said they loved TV [...]

2020-12-22T10:00:04-05:00

November 2, 2018 On the first day of our real estate licensing class in Cherry Hill, one of the first questions we pose is, “What is the Real Estate Commission?” Its Purpose The Commission is a state agency within the Department of Banking and Insurance.

October 21, 2018 When people attend Garden State Real Estate Academy’s real estate licensing classes, they often muse about selling the “Big One.” Is it an impossible dream? Absolutely not!

Ethics Don’t Matter any More

2019-03-09T21:36:55-05:00

October 17, 2018 We teach ethics to our real estate pre-licensing students, and Realtors® attending Garden State Real Estate Academy’s broker licensing course must take 30 hours of instruction—just in ethics. When I’m not teaching real estate classes, I am often invited to address audiences around the country. I recently spoke to a class of [...]

The REAL “3 Most Important Rules in Real Estate”

2019-03-09T21:59:03-05:00

October 6, 2018 Students attending our real estate licensing course in New Jersey often cite the adage: “The three most important rules in real estate are location, location, location.” That may or may not be true for home buyers, but for real estate agents, I beg to differ. We teach our students, "If you want [...]

September 27, 2018 I was meeting with a client who’s asked my team to sell their Medford home when the lady said, “I know this is a silly question, but . . . “ I chuckled, because not only was it not a “silly question,” it was one I’ve probably been asked 30 times this year—and [...]

September 23, 2018 It’s one of the very first questions we ask when students convene for the very first real estate licensing class at Garden State Real Estate Academy: Why do you want a career in real estate?
