“I participated in the 12 hour Workplace Spanish for Realtor’s class with Lanie Bevan earlier this year and wanted to express my thanks for an exceptional program. I was able to acquire critical vocabulary that I used immediately after the program was over. The day after the class ended one of our builders ran a radio ad for one of his subdivisions on the radio station VIVA and my name was listed as a contact person. Because of the class I was able to effectively communicate with the Hispanic buyers that inquired about buying a home. I could give them basic information about our constructions, phone numbers of lenders and answer some of their questions. I am looking forward to some future sales and referrals. The class was a terrific introductory for those hoping to learn the language enough to make their clients feel welcome and valuable.”
