As one of Michigan's largest and oldest brokerage firms, Real Estate One shares nearly a century's worth of knowledge during its educational buffet of training courses. The firm's academy invites aspiring and established sales agents to sharpen their skills at classes held around the state, including a Michigan real estate licensing class for those hoping to sell property or additional locker space to gullible high school freshmen. Computer tutelage keeps students abreast of technological requisites, and continuing education programs help licensed agents meet state requirements. To ensure property apprentices graduate packed with knowledge, Real Estate One appoints experienced, respectful instructors to head each course.
Since 1985, the Michigan Institute of Real Estate has aided real estate agents, brokers, and builders in fulfilling licensing requirements and enriching knowledge of their field. President Namir K. George and fellow experts illuminate the requisites necessary for career paths such as mortgage-loan officer, home inspector, real-estate salesperson, or appraiser. In addition to classroom sessions, Michigan Institute of Real Estate permits pupils to complete coursework online or through home study, so they can complete academics from the comfort of their home or behind the shirts in their crush's walk-in closet. The agency also supplies students with abundant study tools, including flashcards, training CDs, and DVDs.
