Description



In this course, you will learn everything you need to know to grow and build your career.  In the first course, Texas Real Estate Law, you will learn the key laws and legal concepts that you will use every day in your real estate career: contracts, deeds, fair housing, foreclosures, land titles and records, leases, real property rights and land use.  You will also learn about the Real Estate Settlement and Procedures Act, a federal law that regulates the closing and settlement of real estate sales.  You will receive information on the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act and the Texas Statute that provides remedies for fraud in real estate and stock transactions.  


While as a real estate salesperson you are not expected to act as an attorney, it is important for a licensee to develop a thorough understanding of the various laws and statutes affect real estate transactions.  


This package also contains Texas Marketing I and II.  In Texas Marketing I, you will learn how to build your real estate business and establish your own brokerage.  You will learn information on how to successfully operate a business and deliver high-quality service to clients.


Texas Marketing II covers negotiation skills necessary to build a successful business.  Topics covered include communication, emotional intelligence, negotiations, reading people and real estate negotiations.
