Making History....Well Almost!

By
Real Estate Technology with BPO University

Something happened today that was in the 'works' for the last few years. Now that I have completed my very momentious task, I'm a little stumped at why it took so long!

 For the last few years, I have been taking incremental steps to try to build my reputation, to stay educated about the industry and the people in it as well as to try to help bring standarization in education within the BPO industry.

Here's a list of the steps I took:

My first step was to create an instructional 'how-to' manual that I released in January 2007, it's entitled, "All You Ever Wanted to Know About Broker Price Opinions." This manual has helped thousands of other real estate professionals all over the United States.

The second step I took was to become a certified real estate instructor through the Real Estate Department of Licensing on February 27, 2009.

My next BIG move was creating a school that also became accredited and certified through the state.......

And TODAY....I sent in a HUGE packet to the Real Estate Commission with the Department of Licensing for my very first continuing education course titled, "BPO Basics 101."

When this course gets approved..hopefully sometime in the next 45 days, I feel that it will be an industry changing event. To date there are NO accredited, clock hour approved classes on BPO's in any of the 50 states. What a wonderful accomplishment this will be for me and for our industry as a whole!

Keep your fingers crossed for me!

Warmly,
