The Climer School of Real Estate's 'Top 10 Must Read' List

Central Florida’s Best Real Estate School

The Climer School's ‘Top 10 Reading List'

&

What you put into your mind is critical.

This is critical not only to your continued growth and success but you make a decision at every moment as to whether you wash your brain and mind with garbage or input that hurts you or if you wash your brain and mind with positive, building thoughts and components that will serve you and your goals. 

You can’t have it both ways. It is ‘Garbage In - Garbage Out’ or it’s ‘Positive Growing Nurturing Building Message In - Positive Growing Nurturing Building Message Out’.

At The Climer School of Real Estate, one of the many reasons why we are The Best Real Estate Licensing School in Central Florida, is that we espouse, promote, and promulgate (Do you recognize ‘Promulgate’? It’s a Florida Real Estate Commission word LOL) our ‘Top 10 Reading List for Real Estate Agents. In our unique ‘Introduction To Life As A Professional Real Estate Agent’ class (otherwise known as the ‘What Do I Do Now?’ class), we discuss this in great detail with our new licensees. This list is just as important, relevant, and meaningful for veteran agents and brokers as well. I’m going to go over the first ones on our list.

The first book on our Top 10 is ‘The Millionaire Real Estate Agent’ by Gary Keller. This book is one of the most definitive, step by step instruction manuals on how to build your business, how to get to the point where you need a team, how to build your team, how to manage your team, how to build your team to the next level, how to put all of these together to create a million dollar in income real estate machine, and how to change your mindset and your thoughts so that this is ‘you’ not just what ‘you’ are trying to do. Top producers in Gary Keller’s organization will tell rookie or novice agents, “If you want to get to my level, read ‘The Millionaire Real Estate Agent’ and do absolutely everything is says, step by step.” Every Real Estate Agent needs to read this book. Click here to check it out or to buy it.

The Millionaire Real Estate Agent: It's Not About the Money...It's About Being the Best You Can Be!

The next book on our Top 10 List is Napoleon Hill’s classic, ‘Think and Grow Rich’. This book, written in the 1920’s, is still considered the definitive book on success mindset and wealth building.

Napoleon Hill was essentially commissioned and tasked by steel baron and magnate Andrew Carnegie to interview the most successful businessmen and industrialists of the time and find out what their common threads were. He figured that there had to be reasons for their massive successes and he wanted young Mr. Hill to glean them out, journal them, and put them together in one book. 

The result was the timeless classic ‘Think and Grow Rich’. There are 13 Principles to Success in this book. They are as significant, important, critical, and significant today as they were almost 100 years ago or before. It has been said that more wealth has been created because of this book than any other. The Climer School of Real Estate gives its highest recommendations to ‘Think and Grow Rich’. If you do not have it or have not read it, you need to get it and read it now, today!

Climer School’s ‘What Do I Do Now’ class

The Climer School of Real Estate has put together a unique and brand new class. The official title is ‘Introduction To Life As A Professional Real Estate Agent’. We like to refer to it as our ‘What Do I Do Now?’ class. 

 We have never been comfortable with the fact that our required, mandatory state of Florida 63 Hour Sales Associate Pre License class prepares you to pass the exam which makes you legal, but does absolutely nothing to prepare you for real life as a working real estate professional. 

The Climer School of Real Estate has taken care of that. Our ‘What Do I Do Now?’ class arms and prepares new licensees with the information they need to ask the right questions, select the right real estate broker and company for them, and essentially to know what is coming with respect to their new lives as a true real estate professional. 

If you are just about to get your real estate license, or if you just received it, or are contemplating getting a real estate license, or if you know someone who is thinking about it, this class should be mandatory for them or for you. 

There is so much that no one tells you. This simple one day class could save you hundreds of dollars and months of wasted time. Our very first class is Wednesday September 3rd. If you are interested, we are offering an exclusive one time and first time only class fee of only $39.00. This includes your manual and lunch. After this one time, first time class, the course fee will be $99.00 and still worth every penny. 

Visit our website at www.ClimerRealEstateSchool.com or call us at 407-822-3926 to reserve your place. The class is filling up quickly.

And make sure you let your friends know About The Climer School Of Real Estate. Tell them it is the Best Real Estate License School in Central Florida.

Andy Brown’s thoughts on Real Estate ‘Agency Relationships’ in Florida!

Andy Brown’s thoughts on Real Estate ‘Agency Relationships’ in Florida!

Agency Relationships Thoughts from The Best Real Estate License School in Central Florida

Nothing seems to confuse students in the state of Florida Real Estate 63 Hour Pre License class like the concepts of ‘Agency Relationships’. This is not really surprising. 
The Newest Class at The Best Real Estate License School in Central Florida

At the Climer School of Real Estate (The Best Real Estate License School in Central Florida if I do say so myself), we like to teach that 1. ‘Agency Relationships’ is a concept, not ‘Real Life’ and 2. The concept of ‘Agency Relationships’ is like a vampire movie or a zombie movie. 

We teach what the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation and the Florida Division of Real Estate want you to know to pass the Florida Real Estate Sales Associate Exam. But… 

Here is what we mean: First, as a Florida Real Estate Licensee, you are not going to walk around thinking or saying, “I am currently a ‘Single Agent’ working with my Broker’s Principal in a ‘Single Agency Relationship!’ ” Simultaneously, you would not be walking around thinking or saying, “I am currently working as a 'Transaction Broker' in a 'Transaction Broker Agency Relationship' for my Broker so I can show my customer listings that my company has in-house. I guess I have no Fiduciary relationships right now.” No! You just are out there, doing your thing. 

These Agency Relationships are a ‘real’ thing with F.S. 475 (and by the way it is F.S. 475.278 Click Here if you would like to read this directly). What I try to get across to my students, as a teaching example and model, is that you can NOT have ‘Undivided Loyalty’ to more than one person or side in any particular transaction. 

 Many students also get wrapped up and confused by trying to mix ‘real’ Brokerages and Franchises and Offices with the ‘concept’ Agency Relationship. As an example: a Coldwell Banker office or an Exit Realty office is not a ‘Single Agent’ relationship nor is it a Transaction Broker relationship. The Agency Relationship depends on who you are dealing with and how you are dealing with them and what ‘duties’ and behaviors you owe them and are required to give them. 

Second, in a Vampire movie or in a Zombie movie; if you shoot a vampire or a zombie in the head, they don’t die. They get up and keep coming after you. That’s because they’re ‘vampires’ and they’re ‘zombies’ and they aren’t ‘REAL’! I also counsel my students to not make more of some things in the class than they are. Sometimes, things are the way they are because Florida Statute 475 says so. If you think about it, that kind of makes things easier. Have you ever heard the phrase, “You can’t fight City Hall”? Well, you can’t fight F.S. 475 either. 

Regardless, this blog article and the way we care about our students are just a couple of the many reasons why we are the very best central Florida Real Estate License School.

More ways the Best Central Florida Real Estate License School wants to help you pass the Florida Real Estate License Exam

The Climer Real Estate School has put together quite a few tools to make sure that we have done everything that we can to help you prepare for and pass the Florida Real Estate License Exam.

The Best Central Florida Real Estate License School

The Best Central Florida Real Estate License School

The Climer School of Real Estate is the best Real Estate License School in central Florida

We like to think that we have the best State of Florida Real Estate Pre License School in the entire Central Florida and Orlando area. 

We make it our business to be the best and we want it that way. You don’t need to take our word for it. Go to our Google Reviews and read all of our five star reviews from our past students. We have well over 300 outstanding reviews. Try to find another business, real estate licensing school or otherwise, that has that many google reviews much less five star google reviews. 

 We also hear so many complaints from so many students about their experiences at the other schools in the central Florida area. When we have our 2 Day Florida Real Estate Pre License Sales Exam Review at The Climer School, around half of the students are from the other real estate license schools in central Florida. They typically have so many negative things to say and to get off of their chests, we often have to tactfully get them to change the subject. 
Ron Climer teaching Real Estate Math in a Youtube Video

 One of the many reasons why we are the very best real estate license school in central Florida is that all we care about is helping you pass your state exam. That is our priority. 

When we are teaching you in class, we make sure that we reinforce what you need to know to pass your state exam. We don’t teach ‘Real Life’ and we don’t teach ‘What If’s’ in our class. We teach you what you need to know. After you pass your state test and become and Active Licensee, we invite you to come back to our 45 Hour Post License class or one of our Sales and Communications Classes and we will teach you a lot of ‘Real Life’ stuff and salesmanship. 

 If you are still unsure, go back and re-read our google reviews. The Climer School wants to and will do everything that we can to make sure you pass the Florida Real Estate Sales License Exam. 

 Here are a few of the extra items that we make available to you to help you prepare for the test: We have a CD Class Review set and a DVD Class Review set. Both are a live recording of an actual 2 Day Florida Real Estate License Sales Associate Exam Review course. The CD is the audio version. This is the perfect format for you if you are in your car a lot or can put the program on your phone or mp3 player. The DVD is the visual format and is perfect if you can self pace study in front of your TV or your laptop DVD player. 

 We also have the DVD online at http://ClimerSchool.OnlineREschool.com . 

 We have the most complete and comprehensive set of recorded videos on Youtube. These are for you to be able to review at your own pace and on your own time and schedule. They are on our ‘ClimerSchool’ Youtube channel. Many of our students suffer from what we call ‘Math Anxiety’. If you are one of these people, go to https://www.youtube.com/user/climerschool/videos and search for Math or Review. Look for Andy Brown’s and Ron Climer’s videos where we go over all of the math questions in the Florida Real Estate Sales Pre-Licensing Class Manual and the math questions that are on our Free Review Exam on our website. 

 Here is a link to one of Ron Climer’s Math Videos where he teaches how to compute deed stamps, note stamps and intangible tax for the Florida real estate exam and how to compute interest. How to compute the interest rate if given principal and interest. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wkQK2mzVEB8&list=PL5A6D3D8C0E443B69 . This Real Estate Math Video has almost 27,000 views. 

 Here is a link to a video of Andy Brown going over Questions 97, 98, and 99. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sPf6vVL_CE0 . As another reminder, The Climer School has a Free, 100 Question Practice Exam on our website at www.ClimerRealEstateSchool.com . 

 At The Climer School of Real Estate, we like to say that if you pass the state exam, you have ‘Overstudied’. If you fail the state exam, you have ‘Understudied’. Do not relax or let up until you pass that state exam. Study, Study, and Study until you get your license. 

 Finally, if you ever get stuck on a question and just can’t figure out what is going on, email us at info@ClimerRealEsateSchool.com. Tell us what you are having a hard time with and we will get back with you with an easy to understand explanation, usually within the same day.

The Florida DBPR Exam Performance Summary for July 2014

The Florida DBPR Exam Performance Summary for July 2014

Florida Sales Associate Pass – Fail Statistics

Florida's Department of Business and Professional Regulation released the pass fail results for the Florida real estate exam for July 2014 this week. Two thousand six hundred and thirty three Florida real estate sales associate license applicants paid $31.50 to take the Florida real estate exam for the first time in July, 2014. One thousand two hundred and
Florida DBPR July 2014 Pass Fail Stats
seventy passed. That is a 48% pass ratio. Fifty two per cent of the first time test takers that took the Florida real estate exam were disappointed. 

 Two thousand six hundred and seventy six test hopeful takers took the Florida real estate exam for the second or third or fourth or fifth time. All of these applicants paid $31.50 for the privilege and Eight hundred and seventy five passed. That is a 33% pass rate for repeat test takers. This information is from the DBPR at www.myfloridalicense.com. Sixty seven per cent of the repeat test takers failed. At The Climer School, we know how discouraging information like that can be. It doesn't have to be though. At The Climer School of Real Estate, we know what you need to know to pass the Florida real estate exam and we prepare out students better than any other school. This is what we teach in our basic sixty hour real estate course. We teach our students how to pass the Florida real estate exam. We teach this in our Florida Pre-License Sales sixty hour real estate class. The we teach it even more intensely in the two day Florida real estate exam review that we teach twice per month. Some people call this the "cram course". We teach this class to help our students pass the Florida real estate exam. If you are interested in getting a Florida real estate license, you have to take the basic sixty hour class from some real estate school. Before you enroll in a real estate school, check the school out. Read their Google reviews. Ask some rookie Realtors where they went to real estate school. Ask if they would recommend their school. Almost universally, students that took an online real estate course from a real estate school that specializes in all fifty states wish they had taken their real estate course from a Florida real estate school to prepare for the Florida real estate exam. This makes too much sense. This Florida real estate exam is no joke. At Climer School of Real Estate, we use a textbook written by Linda Crawford, a professor at the University of Florida. Our instructors sell or have sold real estate in Florida. We don't teach the laws of the other forty nine states. It is the Florida real estate exam. We teach people to pass the Florida real estate exam. If you are soon taking the Florida real estate exam, get yourself a copy of the "Candidate's Handbook", a booklet issued free by the DBPR to anyone that will read it. It has a breakdown of what is on the Florida real estate exam. This will tell you what to study. If you want a copy of this wonderful booklet, go to www.climerrealestateschool.com. The problem that many of the 52% that are failing the Florida real restate exam are having is that they are studying th wrong stuff. They are studying stuff that is not on the Florida real estate exam. Even worse, they are studying information that is wrong. It is no secret what is on the Florida real estate exam. Well, maybe it is a secret but the folks at Climer School of Real Estate know the secret. Our instructors tell you exactly what is on the Florida real estate exam. We do not teach a bunch of stuff that is not on the Florida exam. There are lots of ways to study. Many real estate sales associate license applicants don't discover that they need to study until they fail the Florida real estate exam or read an article such as this one. Once they discover that they need to study, it doesn't take long to find "Climer School" on You Tube. We have free real estate math videos that explain the real estate math that is on the Florida real estate exam. When you go to You Tube, our user name is ClimerSchool . There is a playlist of real estate math videos. There is no math that is on the Florida real estate exam that is not on these videos. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TZb_k4kq9h0 . Here is a link to one of those free videos. The Florida real estate exam is officially ten per cent math. There are other questions that the DBPR doesn't call math that is math. For instance, computing acres or square feet in a legal description is not considered math. If you can do the math on the Florida real estate exam, you odds of passing increase. At Climer School of Real Estate, we teach a two day state exam review. The only purpose of this intense class is to prepare students to pass the Florida real estate exam. Half of these students are our students and half of the students come from other real estate schools. Half of these students have already taken the Florida real estate exam once or twice. If you wonder how we know what is on the Florida real estate exam, these students tell us. Some of them have gone back to Pearson Vue and paid the $35 to review their exam after they failed. This is where Pearson Vue allows you to look at your exam that you failed. They give you the right answers. This is red hot ‘Intel’. In this two day state exam review class, we use Linda Crawford's "Exam Manual for Sales Associates and Brokers" as the textbook. This is the most wonderful book. It is an outline of the textbook that we use in the sixty hour real estate class. It has 4 one hundred question practice tests in the back. Many people don't take our two day class. They just buy the "Exam Manual". You cannot find a better study aid than the exam manual. If you would like to purchase a copy, call Pam at 407 822 3926. We realize that many people cannot attend this two day live class. We put it on audio and video. You can access by going to our website at www.climerrealestateschool.com . Another great way to study is to create your own flashcards. Take 3x5 cards and write ‘What law prohibits price fixing?’ on the front, and ‘Sherman Clayton Anti Trust Act’ on the back. Make about five hundred of these. This is a great way to study. Do not waste your time and your $31.50 taking the Florida real estate exam without preparing. If you want to find out if you are ready, go to Climer School of Real Estate’s website and take our free practice exam. If we can do anything else to help you pass, contact us. Do not underestimate the Florida real estate exam. www.floridarealestateexam.net Tell your friends about The Climer School of Real Estate, call us at 407-822-3926, and visit our website at www.ClimerRealEstateSchool.com .

Andy Brown's First Day Teaching at The Climer School of Real Estate

“First Days” don’t happen very often. Tuesday, July 29th was my first full-time day as an instructor at The Climer School of Real Estate. It was fantastic.



"Andy Brown's first Florida Real Estate License class at The Climer School of Real Estate"

Ron Climer is officially a mentor of mine and I don’t choose mentors lightly. Ron is a master at not only of the Florida Real Estate Licensing instructing but also public speaking and storytelling. His natural style is my natural style. There is much that he can teach me, and he wants to start taking more vacations. It sounds like a match made in heaven. When I first walked in, Ron sat me down. He said, “When I heard that Andy Brown was interested in teaching with me and becoming a part of the Climer School, I smiled from ear to ear. I hope it’s true.” We are both past presidents of The Winter Park Toastmasters so you know that we like to talk. I am making copious notes of all of Ron’s jokes and stories and where he inserts them. Not to worry, I have plenty of my own that I am bringing to the table.

Why would I be blogging about this? This is one of the main reasons that The Climer School of Real Estate stands head and shoulders above the rest of the Real Estate Licensing schools in central Florida. You will never be bored or falling asleep because of the monotonous drone of the intstructor! First and foremost though, we give you the information that you will absolutely, positively need to know to pass the state of Florida Real Estate licensing exam. We don’t fool around with this.

The class is 60 hours long. That’s a long time to sit in one place and just listen to someone talk, even if it’s about your favorite topic or thing in the world. If you get bored or your mind starts to wander too much, you would be missing out on getting the information that you’ll need to pass the Florida Real Estate exam. On the other hand, if you are having a good time, enjoying yourself, you’ll feel refreshed and aware much more often, you will be paying much more attention, and you will be learning more and retaining more, maybe even in spite of yourself. This is why we have fun in the Real Estate class at the Climer School of Real Estate.

It was a thrill standing up at the podium at 8:00 in the morning, looking out at my class, mentally gearing up to bring the class to attention and begin the class my way. I had 40 students. Many schools have 6 or 8. I had 40 in my first full, start to finish class at the Climer School. Ron Climer is going to let me create some new classes at the school to stay with the times.

We will soon be offering a “What Do I Do Now? Class. It’s always been a pet peeve of mine that none of the state of Florida required, real estate classes for state licensure in anything prepare you for life in the real world after you get your license. They only prepare you to pass the state exam for licensure, to make you legal. There are so many newly licensed real estate sales agents, or “newbies”, that have no idea not only how to select a broker, but about what life is like as a working, professional real estate agent. I want them to know. The Climer School’s upcoming new class will be a full, day long class informing them of everything that they will need to know to prepare to become very successful. I’ll be blogging more about this new class in the very near future.

The Climer School of Real Estate will be offering the full, live in seats, Florida Sales Pre License class in Spanish! We can’t wait. We feel that it is an important need that has unfortunately been ignored. Did you know that you can sit for and take the state exam in Spanish? Spanish textbooks are available as well. We are also developing a Spanish language online class. We will soon have tutorial videos in spanish on our Youtube channel, the ClimerSchool, https://www.youtube.com/user/climerschool/videos.

Back to my first day. It was exciting, exhilarating, nervousness creating, and so much fun. We had a blast. And we will continue to have a blast. The Climer School of Real Estate in Orlando, Florida is the cheapest and least expensive, and the best, and the most informative, and the most fun real estate license school in all of Orlando and central Florida. And we are going to stay the way.

 Finishing up that first day, seeing the smiles on those 40 faces, knowing that I had become a small part of affecting and changing their lives, made me feel better than I have in a very, very long time. I knew that I had chosen the right school and legacy to hitch my wagon to. I can’t wait for the future. You should feel the same way. Andy Brown www.ClimerRealEstateSchool.com

Winter Park Toastmasters, A Cool Place To Learn

     Andy Brown, invited me to join him on Friday morning at 7:30 AM for a meeting of Toastmasters.  This is a club that teaches people to speak better in public.  I was a member of Winter Park Toastmasters for twenty four years. 

     Joining Toastmasters two weeks after I got my Florida real estate license in 1974 was probably the best career decision I ever made.  I learned to speak in public.  I learned how to communicate better than 95% of the people in town. 

     Why would anyone want to learn to speak in public?  What if the Apostle Paul had been a poor speaker?  What if Abraham Lincoln had been a dull speaker?  Public speaking skills are the most marketable skills that anyone can possess.  Being able to speak to a group with confidence and poise will propel your career upwards faster than any other skill. 

     All other things being equal, would you promote the employee with poor speaking skills or extraordinary speaking skills?  Would you think,"Oh,who cares if my new branch manager is an excellent public speaker or not."?  There is no better place to learn this skill than Toastmasters. 

     If your kids are growing up, I am sure you will understand this.  All three of my kids are excellent speakers.  My oldest is a leadership coach consultant. Check her out  at www.climerconsulting.com .  My second child is a speaker.  If you need any more information about Toastmasters, call her, Karen Climer  at 407 493 3974 .  My son is a instructor at Parsons University in Manhattan.  I didn't write this article to brag about my kids.  They learn what they see you doing.  If they see you communicating when they are little, they will learn to communicate .  These are skills worth passing on.

     Check out Toastmasters.  It is fun.  It is almost free.  You will learn a skill that will change your life. BTW Guess what I do for a living     https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tHUabZ9G34w&list=UUyBcLU3Ccx-ZxAyemcXWd1w                             www.climerrealestateschool.com
