Expanding Your Skills With 'CAPS'

In an age of specialization, you may want to consider becoming more knowledge on Universal Design princiles and home modification issues for an aging population and anyone with special needs. It can mean the difference in helping someone adapt to a home or find a new one that will meet their needs.

This week I am teaching the NAHB professional course "Certified Aging in Place Specialist" through its University of Housing division. I teach this several times a year, and I enjoy having people from many different disciplines in attendance. Builders, physical therapists, remodelers, lenders, appliance vendors, medical equipment, hospital administrators, geriatric specialists, consultants, insurance providers,and many others have gone through the courses. Typically Realtors don't take advantage of the courses, but I think they should.

For Realtors not desiring the designation but wanting the information, I am writing a half-day course on just the information that will help you sell and list more properties.

The courses this week are in South Florida (Monday-Wednesday), and I have several more calendared this year.

If you want more information on what is covered or when and where the courses (3 of them) are offered - or if you would like one or more of the courses offered near you - email me.
