demetree school of real estate: What Florida Real Estate School Has The Best Pass Rate? - 09/11/19 06:57 AM
The most common question I am asked is, “What is your pass rate?” In Florida, schools are prohibited by law from publishing their state exam pass rates. In fact, real estate schools in Florida do not even know their state exam pass rates.
If a school tells you they have a high pass rate, ask them how they know. If they tell you that many of their students call to say they passed the first time, ask them if they follow up with every student. Ask them if they have a means to know if all students even took the state exam. Ask … (2 comments)

If you want to succeed in real estate, you have to spend time on lead generation. Recently, someone asked me if cold calling and door knocking where still viable methods of lead generation.
 
My response was that the most effective lead generation method is the one you are willing to do consistently.

There is no person in the United States who has ever been sent to real estate jail because there is no such thing.  You can “accidently” forget to tell the buyer that this house has been condemned – and you won’t get sent to real estate jail.  You can swindle a million dollars from a client – and you won’t get sent to real estate jail.  You can even assault your next open house visitor – and you won’t get sent to real estate jail.  Do you know why?  Because there is no such thing as real estate jail.  Any of … (0 comments)

There are three steps to getting a Florida real estate license:
Fill out an application and get your fingerprints taken Attend real estate school Pass the state exam Fill Out The Application
The first two steps can be completed in any order, but I usually recommend that people submit their application to the state before they go to school. Here’s why… when you submit your application and fingerprints to the state, it takes them a few weeks to approve you to take the state exam.

demetree school of real estate: Can You Get A Florida Real Estate License If You Have A Criminal Background? - 07/30/19 07:54 AM
As a real estate instructor, I’m frequently asked whether or not someone with a criminal record can get a Florida real estate license. The person asking usually wants a definitive answer, but of course the answer is always, “It depends.” I’ll explain how the process works for applicants with a criminal background…
Application Questions
On the Florida real estate license application, there are four questions about your background. Read them carefully before you answer them. The worst thing you can do is answer them incorrectly.
