August is almost gone and it has been 20 days since my last blog. On Thursday and Friday of this week (August 15 and 16) my wife Beth and I are going to have a booth at the 2013 Florida Association of REALTOR® Convention in Orlando. We have been doing this for a number of years and enjoy seeing our many friends we have in the real estate business.
This year we are going to be announcing our new online courses in Home Inspection and Community Association Managers licenses. Plus, we will be announcing our new Promo Code for those attending the Convention. The Promo Code will give registering student candidates a 10% discount on their tuition when registering for any of Cookes online license courses by streaming video. All these courses, of course, include the companion textbook for the course. For those that read this Blog, the Promotion Code is: FAR2013. All who read this Blog can take advantage of the promotion. It is good until December 31, 2013.
Also coming out this week is a new designed brochure we are very proud, designed by Stephanie Calkins. Even more exciting is our new redesigned website that we hope to launch within a week or so. Designed by our database administrator, Ben McCrary, with the goal of giving our website a more current appearance, making it easier to navigate, and giving us an easier process to make changes and revisions.
I passed the 63-hour licensing course and the 45-hour post licensing course exams on the first try after taking these two excellent training courses. The audio and visual presentations, the power point slides and the supplemental training aids are outstanding. I was a recipient of the excellent customer service of the staff. They handled a technical issue during my final exam and answered my email and phone questions with friendly and expert advice. THANK YOU for making this a pleasant and confidence-building experience! I highly recommend these courses.
