LOCATION: THIS IS AN ONLINE ZOOM CLASS: 
CE CREDIT: 4 CE
COST: $50 for Everyone
INSTRUCTOR: Mike Moger

CLASS DESCRIPTION: Taxes are a reality and it is often said it isn’t about what you make, but about what you keep. Knowing the questions to ask the tax professionals can make a huge difference in tax dollars paid versus tax dollars saved.

Most real estate licensees are independent contractors, a status that is ultimately determined by the IRS. Licensees need to be aware of the benefits and pitfalls of independent contractor status—especially as they apply to taxation. Client’s need to be made aware of the tax implications as they relate to a transaction.

This course discusses taxes related to a real estate licensee’s business and how this interacts with the client’s transaction. The purpose of this course is to make licensees aware of parts of the tax code that affect the licensee’s business and the interaction with client and customer relations.

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to accomplish the following:

  • Choose a proficient tax preparer.
  • Apply allowable deductions against commission to reduce tax liability
  • Calculate taxable income for an independent contractor
  • Apply methods to calculate automobile deductions Classify allowable expenses.

GRI 106: Ethics & Professional Practice - New Member Ethics25jun9:00 am1:00 pm9:00 am - 1:00 pm(GMT-06:00) View in my time

LOCATION: IN-PERSON AT SMDRA
CE CREDIT: 4 CE
COST: Member Free / $50 Others
INSTRUCTOR: Jack O’Connor

CLASS DESCRIPTION: This class is required for all new REALTOR® members & counts as the required NAR Code of Ethics for current members.

The Code of Ethics is a measure of professionalism in real estate. It does not describe the lowest common denominator of permissible performance, which many licensing laws do; the Code describes the optimum performance the public has the right to expect and imposes an obligation not only to adhere to high standards of ethical conduct, but also for REALTOR® members to become and remain informed, knowledgeable and competent.

The ethical considerations relating to the new role of transaction broker, and for buyer agents, have mandated changes in the NAR Code of Ethics. Since 1995, the National Association of REALTORS® has continued to revise and expand the Code of Ethics. Every REALTOR® is required to complete minimum Ethics training every four years as mandated by NAR.

LOCATION: THIS IS AN ONLINE ZOOM CLASS: 
CE CREDIT: 4 CE
COST: $50 for Everyone
INSTRUCTOR: Rich Sands

CLASS DESCRIPTION: Setting goals is a critical element of planning for success – personal and professional. Business planning is one of the least practiced aspects of the real estate business, and yet one of the most important. The average new licensee does not think about a business plan or the goals needed for a business plan. Why? Because they never had to in their previous career or they simply did not think they were a “business.”

A business plan is a working tool, identifying and defining business goals and outlining methods of achieving them. It is a detailed description of exactly how a real estate licensee or broker intends to create and operate their business. The business plan is based on research of the industry and an analysis of personal and business income and expenses.

At the conclusion of this course the student will be able to:

  • Prepare clear, concise, and attainable written goals. Differentiate between goal gross income and goal net income.
  • Specify which activities they should do and how often in order to achieve their goals.
  • Illustrate the importance of a business plan.
  • Develop a basic business plan using at least three business plan elements.
  • Complete a sample income statement using a case study.
  • Complete a sample balance sheet using a case study.
  • Complete a sample cash flow statement using a case study.
  • Prepare financial and statistical information for use in goal-setting and business planning.

CLASS DESCRIPTION: In Principles of Marketing, Phillip Kotler defines marketing as “a social and managerial process by which individuals and groups obtain what they need and want through creating and exchanging products and value with others.” Marketing then, in working hand in hand with sales, becomes an ongoing process of planning and executing the strategy and tactics for products and services to create a dialogue or communication. In this course, sales and marketing are discussed in relation to the buying and selling of real estate.

CLASS DESCRIPTION: Real estate contracts are the most used, and often the most misunderstood documents in the profession. One of the keys to a successful real estate practice is understanding the fundamentals of contract law, including the process of offer, counteroffer, and acceptance. Another key to becoming successful in real estate is knowing how to both attract and work with buyers and sellers.
