The Art of Relevance: Letting Go without Losing Your Grip

Time marches on . . . or so the expression goes. But for some of us, it feels as if that march is over, around, and through us. It doesn’t have to be that way, however.

It’s about collaboration and growth.

What must a licensee know in order to protect their interests? Get these answers and more in Buyers With Power! 2-4 hours

The Fair Housing Act became law in the United States in 1968. Real estate licensees have been trying to balance the requirements of the law with the needs and wills of their clients since that time.

Complaints and the careers they are capable of destroying are quite real. With his unique perspective on fair housing law and application, Travis Everette works to help real estate professionals like you avoid the complaint crosshairs while not sacrificing the intent of the law. Expect lively discussions about current marketing techniques and strategies to lawfully satisfy the needs of clients.
