  • "Great class yesterday! Really opened my eyes to the tremendous responsibility we have in training ourselves to be professional, to know and understand the legal process and the little scenarios that will pop up and the problems that could arise if not handled properly!" - Sammy Tovar
  • "Amazing info today, thank you Shelly and Laurel!" - Amanda Guerin
  • "Laurel & Shelly, Thank you for your insights and answers to my questions. - Your New York Connection" - Diallo Stevens
  • "Awesome information so many things 'regular Realtors' don't take into consideration when it comes to: 1) splitting home info, and 2) the win/lose zero sum situation that arises and how it impacts families. The conflict spectrum really got me  thinking about how we will handle people in the 70-100% conflict range.  Can't wait for tomorrow's class!" - Sammy Tovar
  • "Great info on yesterday's class - made me think of few of the situations I was involved in divorce sales - a couple were bad - there was a listing appointment that I walked away from - the house was in horrible state - couple were living with locked doors in the same house was a real War of the Roses.  So looking forward to learning more..." - Rami Rosen
