Exhausting but educational day – or – what we do to keep our license valid in Michigan

August 12th, 2009 · No Comments · macomb county mi real estate market

In order to keep my Michigan real estate sales person license in force I am required to attend 6 hours of continuing education each year.  Many real estate agents will say this is a waste of time as we are continually educating ourselves throughout the course of the year with each client that we represent, but I’m one of the few that believe that 6 hours of mandated class room time is just not enough.

Think about it:  We represent our buyer and seller clients in one of the most expensive transactions that they will ever make.   We help people before, during and after their real estate transaction.  We encounter different scenarios with each transaction.  I can honestly say that not 2 purchases or home sales have been identical in the 12 years that I have been a full time real estate agent in Macomb County.

During the last few years as the real estate market has been so topsy turvy and we now have foreclosures and short sales thrown into the mix it has become even more imperative that we learn as much as we can to help guide and assist our clients.

Todays continuing education class was taught by Jack Waller, of NCI Associates, Ltd.  It’s the first time I’ve attended one of his classes and it was intense.   He touched on real issues that were happening every day in our industry, as well as legal cases that have made their way through the courts here in Michigan as well as across the country that affect our business and how these issues affect our clients.

I was also reminded today of why it is that I do what I choose to do: It’s interesting, it’s important, and I feel we make a difference in the lives of the people we help.  Especially today. My local home owners and home buyers are even more confused and concerned about the real estate market and they are trusting professionals to help them.

It’s a wonderful reminder to me about how much we do help when my name is referred by a past client, when you pop in here to ask a question, and when you simply send an email that says “Thanks, that helped..”

Thanks Mr. Waller. You made a difference today.  You helped.
