“The quality of instruction and the interaction with other students in these classes has been excellent. I’ve taken C/E classes from many different sources, and I will tell you that the rCRMS program training classes rival the best of them, including GRI and CRS. The best part is that you are using local real estate attorneys who know Arizona law and our paperwork”
