Next the course will cover the importance of an office manual, which should establish procedures and rules for the business, including how grievances are handled. Weâ??ll also talk about the important topic of advertising, including rules that must be observed, and how to remain in compliance with them.

Finally, weâ??ll talk about the records of a real estate office and what licensees need to know about what records to keep, how to store them, and how long theyâ??ll need them. This includes a section on financial reports that may be required of a brokerage.
