HS Students Get Leg Up In Real Estate Careers

Students enrolled in the high school’s College Real Estate Law course got a head start in preparing for a career in real estate this year.

As part of the course requirements, the students networked at the Multiple Listing Service 13th annual Technology Fair at the Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury.  Speakers from Zillow.com and Realtor.com discussed how to grow a real estate business through the use of technology.  

Later in the year, Ms. Kathleen Goldin’s class was visited by Jay Walsh, a mortgage loan officer at Bethpage Federal Credit Union who discussed how to get the best mortgage rate, credit scores and how mortgages are originated.  

In addition to receiving three college credits from Long Island University, the College Real Estate Law class is approved by the New York State Department of Licensing as the Real Estate Salesperson 75 hour qualifying course.  Successful students receive a qualifying certificate that allows them to sit for the New York State Real Estate Salespersons Examination.
