Core Course for Brokers and Associate Brokers-2 Internet
Convenient Online Learning, Available 24/7!

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.

This course is a 3 clock hour CE course for ALL levels of license in Maine that require CE for activation or renewal. It contains 8 sections of video instruction, a final quiz and a student handout.

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.
Identify the responsibilities and limitations of disclosed dual agency in accordance with Maine brokerage law and rule.

The purpose of this course is to address the importance of licensees understanding their relationship with consumers. An accurate understanding of the relationship enables licensees to explain it to consumers and manage their expectations. In this course we will briefly identify the licensee's role from first contact to a relationship as a transaction broker or agent with more in-depth identification of issues surrounding disclosed dual agency.
