What or who encouraged you to enroll in the program?
The Pennsylvania Association of REALTORS® presented a scholarship through REALTOR® University in honor of Jim Helsel, past state president and three times National Association of REALTORS® Treasurer. Being actively involved with our state’s education foundation I wanted to find out how the process would work so I applied for it! Believing that unique opportunities should be embraced, I accepted and enrolled.
Admittedly, education is my passion and I was ecstatic to be accepted into the Sales, Marketing and Management track. However, it took some time to juggle the reading, discussions, assignments, projects, and tests while still maintaining my normal real estate work load! Interacting with students from different states, companies, and backgrounds solidified a long time belief; “Where you stand determines what you see.” Sharing our differences on issues and points gave us all time to grow personally and professionally.
What was your favorite thing about the program?
The opportunity to provide feedback regarding the courses was my favorite part of the program. The University has a sincere interest in continually improving upon the programs being offered. This will set our master’s degree program on a phenomenal journey of growth and respect.
How has this program helped you professionally?
Being a seasoned veteran in our industry I can tell you that I learned many new concepts and ideas to help improve my existing business plan. As many of the course projects revolved around the intricacies of our local, state, and National REALTOR® Associations I am a more educated member! Career wise, who knows what lies ahead!
Real estate professionals need to constantly learn and grow in order to stay competitive in this busy marketplace. Abe is someone who knows the importance of education and has taken her knowledge and career to the next level by earning advanced degrees, certifications and designations.
