Sidetracked by the Holidays

Traditional Holiday Meal

Traditional Holiday Meal

This is the time of the year that sales people get sidetracked by all the holiday festivities and then when the holidays are over, they wonder what happened to their income.  Sale markets drastically respond differently to the holidays. Some markets thieve during the holidays while other markets seem to die. Real estate sales aren’t affected that much but those that are in the looking stage will most likely postpone looking until the holidays are over. With shopping to do, and parties to go to, there is hardly time to spare for talking to a real estate agent. Most real estate agents consider the holiday season as a viable excuse for not selling during this time of the year.  The more experienced, more successful agents view this time of the year as greatly improved opportunities to establish a meaningful relationship.

Have you ever noticed that people in general are much nicer, and friendlier from Thanksgiving through Christmas, and even New Year’s? I’m not sure why but during this time of the year, people seem to be more thoughtful of others and less quick to express their anger or short tempers. This is a perfect time for me to talk to new prospective buyers for the first time. They may be too busy for an extended conversation but they are in a very receptive mood for an introduction phone call. Such a call might sound something like this.

Holiday Season

ChristmasMerry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone that reads this message a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and most prosperous New Year. Enjoy all the blessings life has bestowed upon you and remember those that will go hungry and be sleeping in cold during this Holiday Season. Remember the reason for the season always. May your family be safe in that all they do!

The Key to a Successful Real Estate Career

The Key to a Successful Real Estate Career?

This is a million dollar question, but can be answered very simply. The wheel has already been invented, tested, tried, and proven. There is a system in place that has proven productive for some 35-40 years. The system has been tweaked and fine tuned to perfection. It really works so why try to reinvent it. The system has been replicated for years by the Nation’s top producing Realtors®. I’m talking about Realtors® that have set new production records in listings and sells;

You may go to the Alabama Real Estate Commission’s website to review all requirements for licensure.

Grading System/Minimum Grade Requirement: The course that Alabama Real Estate Institute offers is created by CompuTaught. Below is an explanation of how the CompuTaught Learning System works and how it monitors your progress. The course requires active participation in each lesson and you must answer lesson questions correctly twice (100%) in order to proceed to the next lesson. There is no “make-up” work policy because all course work must be completed before taking the final exam.    For prelicense and post license courses, there is a final exam requirement after all lessons are completed. You must pass the exam with a 75% in order to receive credit for the course.

If you do not pass the final exam, you will be allowed an exam retake. If you do not pass the retake exam, you will not receive credit for the course. However, you will have the opportunity to purchase a retake of the course at a discounted price. If you do fail the course exam and purchase a retake, you will be required to start the course over and progress through each lesson again before you are allowed to take the final exam. Alabama Real Estate Institute will maintain your school records including your exam scores for five years at the minimum.

Signed Course Certification Statement The Alabama Real Estate Commission requires that you certify that you have personally completed each module of a distance learning course and any written exercise or assessment required for completion of the course. You must provide a signed Course and Assignment Certification Statement to the school before scheduling any course examination and before the school may certify your completion in any course. The school will not process your course completion without your submitting a signed certification form. This form is available online and you will electronically submit this to your school when you have completed all required modules of the course. This from will appear on your course homepage once you have completed the course lessons.

In order for Alabama Real Estate Institute to certify that you have completed a course, you must:

  1. complete all instructional lessons in the course by answering each question correctly at least twice;
  2. complete any online or paper homework or exercise required by the course;
  3. Submit signed and dated Course and Assignment Certification Statement {A “Student Affidavit” link will appear on your course home page upon completion of the course. Click on that link and initial and hit submit}; and
  4. pass any required course final examination at an approved school location.

Course Completion Records: Alabama Real Estate Institute will submit your successful completion of a course to the Commission (for postlicense and continuing education courses) or to AMP (for all prelicense courses) through secure internet transmission programs. If you require a paper certificate from the school for another state’s requirements or for some other purpose, you must contact a school administrator after completing the course.

The CompuTaught Learning System: The CompuTaught Learning System represents an entirely new approach to instruction administered using a computer. The primary feature that distinguishes this system from more traditional computer-based instruction (CBI) is that the system is designed around proven instructional strategies, rather than around the capabilities of the computer.

 

How Our Course Monitors and Evaluates Your Progress and Provides Feedback:

CompuTaught courses utilize the personal computer to perform the functions traditionally performed by the teacher. Using CompuTaught courseware, the computer becomes essentially a one-on-one tutor. It presents the material to be learned, provides adequate explanation to insure that you understand what is being presented, and requires that you demonstrate your understanding through active participation in the learning process.

 

More importantly, it acts as a constant monitor of what you know and don’t know and uses that information to dynamically adjust the presentation to meet your needs as you learn. The result of this process is that the courseware provides a fully self-contained instructional program that can adjust to your specific needs which may vary widely both in the amount of knowledge you bring into the learning session as well as your learning ability (i.e., how quickly you learn. In addition, no other resources (such as books or teachers) are normally needed to accomplish the educational objectives of a particular course.

 

There are a number of specific features of the CompuTaught learning system which contribute both to its uniqueness and to its effectiveness in teaching. The two primary characteristics are teaching to mastery and fluency and the dynamic control of the learning process.

 

Teaching to Mastery and Fluency

Mastery means that you will be required to learn the material on a particular topic to a specific criterion level. In practice, what this means is that the material is not just presented to you in the hope that you have learned it. Instead, you will be required to actively respond and demonstrate that you have learned the material presented before being allowed to proceed to new material.

 

Fluency means that you have learned the material well enough that your answers to questions, or other appropriate actions, are provided quickly, indicating greater “fluency” with the material.

 

What does all this mean to you? It’s simple. You’ll be ask every question repeatedly until you answer it correctly twice (mastery) and within a specific period time (fluency). So, read the questions and the answers before you select an answer. It doesn’t pay to GUESS!

 

The Dynamic Control of the Learning Process

The CompuTaught learning system has the ability to control the learning process dynamically, thereby tailoring the instruction to your individual needs to insure mastery and fluency on a very detailed level. As a basis for tailoring the instruction, the computer monitors how you respond to each question it presents, whether the answer was right or wrong, how long it took you to answer, and how many times it has been answered correctly. It then adjusts the presentation of material based on your responses, varying the order of material and the amount and content of remediation provided.

 

How to best take a CompuTaught course

Spending too much time in any one session will burn you out. Remember, our program actually challenges you to LEARN the material not just skim over text. So, we recommend you split up your effort into 30-40 minute sessions. You can do more than one session per day (recommended) but, try to do something everyday. The consistency of effort (particularly for any prelicense courses) is what will produce the best learning for you.

As you work on the course, your time in each lesson is recorded as well as how many questions are presented and how many attempts were required to answer the question correctly. So, the learning system serves as a record of attendance and academic achievement.

Refund Policy: You have the right to cancel your registration for any reason up to seven (7) calendar days from the date of purchase. Requests for cancellation of a registration must be made by contacting Alabama Real Estate Institute by phone, FAX, or e- mail. The request must be received by Alabama Real Estate Institute before midnight of the seventh calendar day from the date of purchase.
A cancellation fee will be charged to the student to cancel a registration. The amount of the cancellation fee is 15% of the total purchase amount. If the course includes one or more textbooks, the books must be returned at the student’s expense. The request for cancellation will not be processed until the book(s) are returned to the school in reusable condition.

 

Student Services, Rights, Privileges and Responsibilities: Upon successful completion of the Prelicense course, each student will receive an official completion certificate. To request additional copies of a completion certificate, please contact Alabama Real Estate Institute. There are no fees for additional copies. Student transcripts will be provided upon written request.
