Recent Testimonial:

"I couldn't let another moment pass without thanking Geoff MacLean for his time spent with us...  I left there admiring what a great job you did of drilling information into our new or seasoned skulls in an entertaining way. The next day, I overheard 3-4 agents in a circle talking about you. Sentences like, "It's like he was born for his job!" "How can he make something as boring as the Form 3 into an engaging class?!" etc

Which Loan Program?
Clarion Hotel TRELG Education Center 1230 Congress Street Portland

Presented by Senior Loan Officer, Robert Staab, this three-hour course will cover the basic parameters for conventional loans, FHA, VA, RD and Jumbo loan products. It will discuss the parameters of each program and how they differ in both rules and regulations.
The program will also show both the benefits to the potential home buyers and the pitfalls. It will discuss such topics as the differences in mortgage insurance, down payment, condition of the property, and how credit score can affect the borrower. It will show how each one of these factors affect the cost of the loan and the likely hood of the borrower actually getting approved for the loan itself.
It is not intended to make the real estate agent/broker into a loan officer. The intention is to give them a working knowledge of how a loan officer should think about what loan is best for the client and what the loan officers thought process is.

Core Course for Brokers & Associate Brokers 4 Communication
Clarion Hotel TRELG Education Center 1230 Congress Street Portland

The single most important element of a smooth real estate transaction is EFFECTIVE communication. Not that long ago, licensees worked mainly from an office and most often communicated with consumers face to face, by telephone or through the United State Postal Service. Offers were mailed out or faxed for initials and signatures and it could take days to get a fully executed contract. Technology advances have changed the way business is done. Offers can be emailed, electronically signed and returned in a matter of minutes. A potential down side of this faster-paced transaction is a lack of thorough communication. Transactions involve numerous people, any of which may drop the ball and forget to pass along a message, submit a document or set up an appointment. When everyone involved in a transaction keeps in contact with each other chances are there will be a clearer understanding of that transaction and proper expectations. A common thread found in the investigation of Real Estate Commission complaints is INEFFECTIVE communication. Whether it be about appointed agency, disclosed dual agency, performance/service, earnest money disputes, incomplete property information or other brokerage issues, communication is often a factor when an issue arises.
