Posted by Sandy Dorle — June 8, 2011
NAPLES, FL, June 07 – John R. Wood Realtors today announced that it has opened its own residential real estate school. The online, Florida State accredited institution offers pre-license and post-license course training for brokers and sales associates as well as the 14-hour, biennial continuing education as required by the state.
Heading the Wood Real Estate School is Ms. Jeri Cobb, a broker with John R. Wood and a licensed residential real estate instructor since 1994. She is also a real estate Institute Instructor, GRI, a local, state and national real estate speaker, and a specialist in career development. In 1996, she was named the Educator of the Year by the Florida Association of Realtors.
“As this area’s number one firm in closed sales, we felt that we needed to offer potential agents as well as our existing sales staff the best educational opportunities available,” said Cobb. “We are particularly excited to see younger applicants in the 22 to 35 year old range which demonstrates to us that this remains a great industry with lots of potential.”
