Education Corner
Hello and Welcome 2018!!!
I want to start the year by wishing each one of you a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year!!!

As your 2018 Education Committee Chairwoman, I look forward to working with each and every one of you in fulfilling our mission statement:
“The Education Committee of The Inland Gateway Association of REALTORS® seeks to provide its members with the ability and resources that will increase their skills and knowledge. To bring forth a learning environment full of information that is essential to all REALTORS® and agents. The committee strives to allow each member the possibility to become proficient and highly educated in their profession by offering the most up-to-date educational programs, designations and current information available. To establish a relationship that will continue to support each member with the capability of being the highest level of professional they can be.”

Allow actions in 2018 to propel your business to levels unseen. Pablo Picasso once said that “Action is the foundational key to all success.” We live in a world where technology changes on a daily basis. If we don’t educate ourselves and keep up to pace with all the current changes, then we will fall to the way side. Awareness comes from education and my goal is to keep you aware of the latest innovative tools, systems, rules and regulations that you can implement in order to have a successful, ethical and safe real estate career.

Two major rulings that become effective January 1st 2018:

AB 2330 requires that a licensee be declared on the Bureau’s website as an associate licensee or a broker-associate licensee. The employing real estate broker must fill out the RE 215-Broker-Associate Affiliation Notification form. This form can be found at However, both the employing broker and the associate broker are responsible for notifying the bureau.

RE 559 requires that all first point of contact within soliciting materials contain the 8 digit license number of each licensee in the advertisement. The font size of the license number must not be less than the smallest font size used in the advertisement. This applies to all business cards, stationery, websites, flyers, brochures, regular mail and email, directional signage and signs, etc.

As a committee we are constantly looking for new and fresh ideas from its members. We meet only one hour a month. If you are interested in sharing your knowledge and expertise, feel free to contact me or join us on every 2nd Tuesday of each month at the board. Looking forward to an enhanced and educational year.
