Welcome to "Core Course for Brokers and Associate Brokers-2", an online course featuring Geoff MacLean and Ed Getty. They each have 30 + years of experience and numerous interesting stories that inform the important points they present in this video based discussion of licensees relationships with consumers from first contact to in-depth identification of issues surrounding disclosed dual agency.

This is a continuing education core course required for the activation or renewal of a Broker or Associate Broker real estate license in Maine. This is NOT the core course for activation or renewal of a Designated Broker license.

Objectives: Licensees completing this course will be able to:

Identify their relationship with buyers and sellers during the solicitation of business and as clients or customers.
