Behind the scenes in the life of a REALTOR® is the on-going process of education. Being up on the changes facing any industry is key. And certainly real estate in the State of Washington is no exception.
Yesterday I attended our Washington Core Class, brushing up on both basic topics and new changes in the face of real estate as it pertains to Washington as well as our own marketplace. Our class yesterday covered many issues, but centered on our state wide forms, the toolbox of REALTORS®.
Our class was in Clarkston, Washington, and it was a beautiful day in the Lewiston-Clarkston Valley. It was hosted by Annie Fitzsimmons, a lawyer who serves as general counsel to the Washington RELATORS®. Because of her behind the scenes involvement with the development of the Washington State Wide Forms, she is a most respected and valuable resource to our industry. She is a great speaker with a background steeped in real estate. She literally grew up in the industry as her parents owned a real estate company, and later went on to become a lawyer specializing in real estate law.
For me it is always an enjoyable time to spend with my colleagues, both from my office at Beasley Realty, as well as REALTORS® from both my area in Pullman Washington, as well as out lying areas. And it is a great excuse to grab a bite to eat with fellow colleagues and catch up!
