Brokers handle the most important transactions a consumer can experience: the purchase/sale of a home or other valuable real estate asset. They obtain incredibly valuable and private information, such as the intimate details of clients’ lives and relationships, their financial history, negotiating strategy, and other personal information. What are some of the legal and ethical issues of maintaining privacy now?
This course answers these questions: what ownership rights does my seller have? how do my buyers and sellers' relationships' affect their title? how do I know that my buyers are getting the beat possible title? What is title, anyway? And do my clients need title insurance, really?
" I just wanted to say thank you for taking the time to make an awesome class!" --Robin Clark, Keller Williams
Can brokers receive referral fees (or discounts) when they want to purchase/ sell properties outside of NC? What about fee-splitting? Can brokers receive commissions if clients default on contracts? What about paying/receiving out-of-state referrals?
I will DEFINITELY choose another one of your classes even though it cost a little more. It was worth it. thank you!"--Helen Nagy

In addition to receiving a professional textbook with this course, students receive an Excel spreadsheet to help them compute ROI (return on investment).
You will be walked through an ROI analysis of income/rental property on a "kiddie condo" investment; the other for a commercial property. This course focuses on long-term investments (more than one year) rather than on short-term investments.

Brian Pate, real estate instructor
"I completed the investment class tonight.
I enjoyed the class and love the spreadsheet.
Thank You!--Julia McKeown
"Just wanted to say this on demand course was awesome and I don't know what I would've done if this option was not offered. The course was very very insightful as I'm a broker but also a very full time investor as well so learning more in depth about the FMRR method as well as getting a free template for Excel to use on my personal time was awesome." --Xie Wiecong

"I thought this was one of the best courses I have taken online. I enjoyed the mix of articles, videos, and reading. This course flew by and I enjoyed the content. As always I learn something every time I take a course. I learned a lot about ethics in this one."--Brian York
"I really enjoyed this online course. I already had an interest in tiny houses so I was primed to like it. But even so--even if I had had no interest in tiny houses--I think that I would have found it fast paced and informative, not repetitive and slow the way that some online courses have seemed to me."--Robert Huls
"Just a quick note to tell you how much I enjoyed having Debbie Long as the CE instructor yesterday. She was smart, articulate, professional, well-prepared, and entertaining. For the first time in the 7-8 years that I've been taking CE, I did not spend most of my time either bored or looking at the clock to see when the course would end!" --Susan Woodard
"I never write to an instructor after having CE classes. However, yours is one of the BEST that I have taken in my many years in Real Estate. I look forward to attending many more! Everyone enjoyed it and it was SO INFORMATIVE (as you purposed it to be). Thank you for knowing what we all need no matter the years in the business." --Kay Earp
"The fact that you were so available is terrific. 5 stars. I thought the course and the format were really good. Thank you, Debbie." --Fred Blair, Coldwell Banker Blair & Associates
I really enjoyed your [movie] class. In fact I have a whole new outlook on some of the movies referenced that I plan to go back and watch. Thank you for keeping the class entertaining and enjoyable. I will definitely recommend it and I look forward to taking more of your classes. --Holly Martin
You weren’t kidding about fast response to email… thank you! --David Allan Brown
Re: The "everything I Know about Real Estate, I Learned from the Movies course: "Really, really enjoyed your style of teaching. I was always the kid asking 'why?', because understanding something fully helps it commit to memory - like about fee simple derived from 'fief' through the way the Europeans/Brits approached land ownership (of course inspired by the Romans!) that really helped a few things click for me. And telling it through stories makes it stick!
Seriously, well done. I know this wasn't the prompt for this question, but I wasn't sure I'd get a chance to make these comments to you!" --Jeffrey Baker
"Debbie, I very much enjoyed this class! It was entertaining and exactly what I was hoping for when I signed up for this particular elective. It gave me something to relate real estate to and that was very helpful! The website and navigation of the class was very easy to do at my own pace and jump back in exactly where I left off which was a concern of mine going into this because I had never taken an on-demand class before. I am overall very very happy with this course and will definitely be looking for your classes again next year when it is CE time!
P.S. I even appreciated the "nagging" email reminders! You brought humor to the looming deadline and that was fun! (I didn't find them nagging at all!)" --Shannon Bruton
My name is Ruth Tyson Dobson-Torres (Broker License #225835), and I want to let you know that I just completed your online course, "Can I Get a Referral Fee on That? and Other Money Matters,” today. I so enjoyed the course content as well as your teaching style, and I learned a great deal. THANK YOU for delivering such a positive learning experience!
Awarded "Education Program of the Year," this course meets the National Association of Realtor membership requirement that must be met every three years by NAR members by Dec. 2024.
This course also provides four hours of real estate elective credit. Remember, not all brokers are REALTORS. Only Realtors are required to take this course, but, of course, anyone may take the course....and probably should! Each individual Realtor association decides whether to accept a particular course for its requirement.
However, my course has already been approved by the Raleigh Regional Association, the Asheville association (Land of Sky Realtor Association) and the Rutherford County Association. That means that my course is approved for ANY North Carolina association.
I have the documents necessary to receive approval from any other Realtor association outside of NC. Please check with me first if you have concerns about my course qualifying for credit with your association..
