The Ohio Real Estate Commission has designated 3 hours of the 30 total that real estate brokers in Ohio need to renew their licenses to be focused on what it means to be the principal broker of a firm, and related items of running a brokerage. Our course will begin with an overview of principal broker duties, as outlined by the Ohio Revised Code. Next is a breakdown on the different techniques for supervising employees as opposed to independents.
The longest section of the course deals with topic areas that should be covered in a firm's office manual. Office policies and procedures must be set, and this course will provide both a recommendations and checklist for establishing solid ones.
To start the discussion on records management, we'll cover the basis for retention of financial documents, including how to organize, store, allow for easy retrieval, and dispose of outdated or obsolete records. After that is a couple sections analyzing the do's and don'ts of maintaining client trust accounts. This segways into further discussion on organizing records and knowing where to put the various types of important documentation created and processed through a brokerage firm.
After each lesson, students will be asked a single question about the material. Videos and images are utilized throughout the course to aid visual and auditory learning styles.
