“I currently practice real estate in Houston, Texas  I attended the Certified Condominium Specialist® Course in Austin and it was it worth the trip to Austin!  Candy was so entertaining and engaging throughout the class it seemed like time flew by.  I’ve done many condo deals, but I gained more knowledge in this class than actually doing the deals.  I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to break into the condo market or expand their current knowledge!"

I found the Certified Condominium Specialist® Course to be incredibly informational and helpful in preparing for both condo buyer purchases and listings.


As a real estate agent, this course was essential to me to find out what I needed to learn about HOAs and the types of available condo financing to properly assist my clients with their condo purchases and sales!


The CCS™ class was high energy and fun thanks to Candy and her team!  I highly recommend this course to agents who want to improve their condo knowledge and better serve their clients!
