Last week I took Legal issues in Real Estate, a mandatory course offered by the Real Estate Institute of Canada as the last step in my FRI designation.  The faculty instructor was John Poletes.

It is important that the student share their learning experience with the REIC which help improve the education it is providing to students like me. My passion is real estate and the success of fellow realtors and clients is my priority.

I put great efforts in learning from teacher like John Poletes, FRI so that I can do a better job in promoting professional integrity, honest & competent real estate services to my clients and customers. It is also important for me to recognize those instructors who teach us and appreciate their contribution to our profession.

I am extremely impressed with the teaching style of Mr. John Poletes,  who stimulated real conversation with students to teach REIC 2800 Legal Issues in Real Estate. What struck me the most was him sharing his life long experiences in real estate and connecting with the subjects being discussed in REIC 2800. He was very polite, smiling and engaged the class in a very effective manner. It made my learning experience a pleasant surprised. It is a very effective method of teaching when a teacher becomes a part of the class and helps stimulate intelligent conversation among all participants. We participated openly and expressed opinions (right or wrong), and it was an amazing environment for learning.  It was superbly done by Mr. John Poletes.

Mr. Poletes made his students comfortable in the class, made his teaching method effective, and helped student understand the complex legal issues in real estate easily to prepare the students to avoid pit falls in the future.

Thank you for sharing your knowledge & experience with all of us.
