It’s Official - I’m Certified!

Certificate of Instructor Approval

I am now officially certified by the State of Washington to teach a variety of technology and real estate related topics. Agents can receive required clockhours for State approved classes that I teach for the purpose of real estate license renewal. I am not changing my job and I am still a 24/7 active real estate Associate Broker at Coldwell Banker Bain. But as many of you know I have been unofficially teaching and leading classes and seminars for years. And while I have been certified by the University of Cambridge to teach for over 20 years, I have never been certified here in Washington State or for real estate related clockhour classes.

I don’t think this will change much for me. I plan to offer several technology-related courses for agents who want to improve their skills in areas that will enhance their professionalism and help them serve their clients and the public at large better. But I’m pretty busy with my main job of helping buyers and sellers with their real estate goals and plan to stay focused on that as my primary objective.

That being said, let me know if you need someone to teach a class….

    Thanks everyone for their kind comments. I have to admit this is simply a pursuit of passion, no other reason. I frankly just feel somewhat incomplete without having a teaching component in my life.

    For those who don’t know, I spent over ten years in Japan in the 1980’s and 1990’s teaching various subjects. I started out teaching English until I learned the language better, and then I taught computer graphics and page-layout applications in colleges and universities.

    Those who are teachers understand the pure satisfaction that comes with assisting someone to attain a higher level of knowledge or skill. You really feel you are making a difference.

    It’s my definition of “service”. Still gives me goose bumps.
