IMPORTANT NOTE on CLOSED Classes: All the online classes and many of the on-campus classes close quickly. You should register ASAP if you are interested in any class. If you change your mind, please drop the class immediately so others can enroll. If the class is closed, consider the Wait List procedures; be aware of the rules and the limitations. Otherwise, consider these options: 1) register for another section if available; 2) register for another class; 3) consider registering in a future semester; 4) show up for the first day of an on-campus class and discuss with the instructor; or 5) forget about it and move on. The instructor will not intervene with the wait list procedure.
Please be aware that, once a class reaches maximum enrollment and “closes,” on or after the first day of the semester, even if “available” spaces appear on SURF due to drops, it is within the instructor's complete discretion on whether to add more students at that time. Drops after the first day are normal attrition and are factored in when setting the maximum enrollment. The class has started and important assignments and subject matter have already been covered. Please do not email the instructor. Thank you for your understanding.
Teaching Philosophy/Style and Class Management/Activities
I currently teach 1-3 classes a semester, REAL 100 and REAL 105. Having been licensed by the DRE since 1991, I bring real world experience into the classroom. You’ll be asked to role play, design ads, make a listing presentation, learn to negotiate like a professional, Internet real estate marketing, execute contracts and learn many other important functions that are critical to your success. I can assure you with profound confidence that you won’t make the same mistakes many other new agents make. As a top producer myself, I distill and compress my 20 years of tips and sales strategies into my classes. As you’re about to find out, real estate will be one of the most rewarding fields you’ll ever experience.
If students choose to take an online class, I expect them to have the technical knowledge and ready access to an efficient computer and to effectively deal with the Internet, Email, Blackboard and basic computer skills. Students are expected to promptly read and fully understand the syllabus and all information sent by email or posted on the Blackboard site. They must have good time management skills and be able to spend approximately NINE (9) hours per week on the class. If they have work, family or other class obligations that will not allow for this, they should not take the class. I am available as needed but I am not a hand-holder. Students are expected to be proactive and take full responsibility for their learning and their grade. They should strive to complete and learn from all activities as well as from the instructor and the other students.
I expect students to complete the assignments for each week on their own time schedule within that week. Students will read the chapters and respond to discussion questions, and complete and submit homework problems each week. There are Midterm and Final objective M/C exams and there are Midterm and Final Papers and Peer Reviews (analysis of other students’ papers) on relevant class topics. There may be optional on-site or online “meetings” scheduled if time permits. All are expected to do their best to learn from each teaching method and complete all required assignments timely.
