Next 3 Continuing Education Webinars Scheduled!

Our newly released webinar continuing education has been a smashing success.  In these programs, staff brings in an expert from the field to discuss the topic at hand and give us real life insight to how the subject matter applies to REALTORS.  These classes are not to be missed.  Each runs from 10 a.m. to noon, and provides 2 hours of continuing education credit.

Friday, May 24:  Title V RE22RC13 – The always entertaining and informative, Ryan Ray of Berkshire Green Septic, will join Sandy Carroll to discuss all things septic (he promises to make a clean appearance! 🙂 ).  You’ve never heard anyone, like Ryan, who can make this topic so much fun!  We’ll chat about things like:  Disclosures under Chapter 93A, Title V Regulation impacts to a seller and buyer in negotiating the P&S, a History of Massachusetts Title V, Designing a System, Key Elements of a Report and so much more.  BUT!  Time will fly and you’ll get a chuckle, or two, or several while earning your CE credits.  Don’t miss this one!

Monday, June 17:  The Wetlands Protection Act RE23RC12Robert Van Der Kar, the Conservation Agent for the City of Pittsfield, will join Sandy for this What, When and Why program on The Wetlands Protection Act.  Ever wondered why Massachusetts has a Wetlands Protection Act?  How does one research the Wetlands Protection Act?  What areas are subject to protection under The Act and is there a presence of wetlands on the site?  What resources are available to engage a specialist?  How is The Act enforced?  These questions and more will be answered by Bob during this 2 hours program.  Everyone should know about the Wetlands Protection Act!

Thursday, July 25:  Appraisal Process RE26RC07 – So you have that property under contract, and the appraiser is due out at any moment…what exactly is their process?  Wayne Wilkinson of Wilkinson Appraisal will give us the whole low-down on the appraisal process.  We’ll discuss terminology; Different levels and requirements of a licensed appraiser and recommending the appropriate level to your client; Federal regulations that an appraiser must follow when developing a CMA (hint:  they’re different than a broker CMA); Industry standards for reporting, and answer questions you have arising out of your experience in the field.

Please NOTE:  You must register in advance to receive unique log in credentials.  Each individual attending the program must log in on their own device to receive credit.  Offices can not watch these programs as a group on one device and all receive credit!  Look for an email from staff a day or two before each program with instructions.
