Delaware Office Management (Module 4)
In residential real estate transactions, you are responsible for assisting clients in one of the largest purchases of their lives. Clients literally risk hundreds of thousands of dollars, or more, and require your expertise to hold it all together. In addition, people invest not just their money in a real estate purchase, they invest their emotions and their family's well-being. When things go wrong, they look to you for answers. In commercial real estate transactions, the stakes are even higher, with millions of dollars at stake.
In Delaware Office Management, we examine office management through the prism of risk management. Regardless of how long you've been in business, risk is something you're going to encounter again and again. Keep in mind that, over time, you will see risks change with the advent of new laws and the shifting of consumer needs, market conditions, and business requirements. Risk management will continue to be an important part of your real estate business.
