What Past Attendees are Saying:

"I think that class should be recommended to EVERY new agent. It was very obvious that Wendy knows her job like the back of her hand and the fact that she is able to convey her knowledge in an understandable fashion was wonderful. I've been the TC in my office for about a year now and I've just been working down my checklist and making sure that everything on my checklist is in the file. After this class, I feel like I have a VERY firm grasp on why those things on my checklist are required and when. Now I'm all gung-ho about my files and have the confidence to by the TC with the Iron Fist!

I've been telling anyone in my office who will stop long enough to listen to me about how wonderful this class was and how useful the class was. What I've heard back from some of our newer agents is that they feel the same way that I felt before taking this class - that the contract was something that was big and overwhelming and that without the checklists, you wouldn't stand a chance! This is what made me realize that new agents would benefit from this class.

I'm keeping this class on my radar and we'll have a bigger showing from this office next time the class comes up!"
