What if you organized an MCE class and nobody came?

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Dallas Premier TX #0552717

What could be worse?  How about organizing an MCE (Mandatory Continuing Education) class, getting 40+ agents to sign up, and the instructor doesn't show up?  That's what happened yesterday at a local title company.  It was standing room only as more than 40 agents packed the training room to learn about "Staging to Sell."  We enjoyed a continental breakfast, networked with the other attendees, and wondered why the session didn't start on time.  The rules for continuing education classes are very strict and every minute counts if the agents are to receive credit for attending the session.  We were eventually told that the presenter had a family emergency and the class would be rescheduled.  I don't know the presenter and don't think she's on AR.  Karen Otto and Nancy Roberston - here's an opportunity for you to fill in!

NJ and Guam are the only 2 places with out CE, but it has been up for review every year... this is the closest we have gotten to having it.. The big RE agencies with referral agents have been against it since it will hurt them and reduce there lists of agents.

maybe this year, maybe next!  (we SHOULD have it!)

Lorrie- That would have been a bummer in many professions.  Anytime you are at a Realtor 'gathering' it is going to be fun!!!

Hey Lorrie, I'm in Florida and am appalled to hear this! Although my class, Home Staging, at Collin College does not offer MCE's (yet) it's quite comprehensive in 8 hours (evenings).  I'd like to know the name of the "trainer" for this course or the title company who hosted and see what the whole deal was.

Additional Information

Ah, Addison! Not a city, but a "town." The Town of Addison. The best place to live and work in North Texas. There's something to be said about a place that doesn't take itself too seriously. Note the exclamation point in the town's name. Here you'll find the ruminations, rants and raves of one of the town's realtors and residents.
