This is an excellent course. I wish that the Real Estate schools explained the subject matter as thoroughly. I contacted an instructor and Scott was extremely knowledge about the subject. I have taken other course online from companies that charged twice as much but offered only 1/4 of the service 123CEinc.com does. I will definitely be taking more courses from them in the future.
