I am studying for my M.A. license and plan to be done later this summer. I have enjoyed your articles in the CREB news.Since I am doing the independant study program I have no access to classroom instruction, online tutorial help or any other help for that matter. I am wondering if you would have any advice on what are the critical areas of study as far as application in the real world. I know the whole thing is important but any advice would be helpful. Also, I am wondering about potential brokerages to work with. In your experience are there some you would recommend above others?

Thank you for you time.


Good questions.

First of all, regarding the course, do all of the math questions enough times so that you get each question right. Don’t worry if you cannot grasp the very very hard questions because you can afford to skip them and still pass the exam. Math is the only critical area. All the other areas are theoretical reading techniques will enable you to learn the content.

As for mortgage companies, do what I did:

Call each mortgage company in your city and interview them. Find out which one fits you and go with that one. Not all mortgage companies are the same and I can’t say that I can recommend any one since this is a personal choice. At the very least, do your home work and talk to each of them.

Practically speaking, there is no advise to replace real world experience. Just get started and make it happen. You will do fine.

Call me if you have any hard to do mortgages.
