Passionate Trussville Realtor offering pre-license course
From The Trussville Tribune staff reports
TRUSSVILLE — A real estate expert in Trussville is sharing his knowledge and helping future generations of real estate agents get ready for their careers.
Mark Yarbrough, of Vestavia Hills, started the school to offer education and training for people interested in real estate. In order to get a license, applicants are required to complete a pre-license course.
Yarbrough’s mission is “to provide quality real estate education that is both affordable and convenient, appealing to the various educational needs of the modern student.”
Cates said he is a facilitator for an opportunity in the highly competitive real estate business.
“This is the only class on this side of town and I bring in professionals every week to help my students succeed once they get their license,” Cates said. “They bring food, offer advice and recommendations, and learn what to expect.”
Cates said a career in real estate is a good choice for anyone, especially those who want a little freedom.
“You have a flexible schedule and no one is ever going to tell you that you’ve made too much money. There is no ceiling to how successful you can be,” he said. “And the city of Trussville is the fastest growing city in Jefferson County so that brings in a lot of people looking to buy and sell.”
Classes are held on Tuesday and Wednesday nights from 6 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. at 196 Main Street in Trussville. The nine-week class is sponsored by Donna Lowery of BOE Mortgage.
MY Real Estate School costs $379. Veterans receive a 10% discount.
The current semester is already underway, but a new class will begin on June 18. Anyone interested can call Jonny Cates at (205) 568-3673. There are limited spaces and classes fill up quickly.
