As real estate agents it’s our responsibility to make sure the property that our clients are selling is going to pass the Smoke Alarm Inspection. So, don’t forget to check the alarms to make sure you have the right ones near the kitchen and bathroom. Remember any smoke alarms that are within in 20 feet of the kitchen or bathroom with a bath tub or shower must be photoelectric smoke alarms. The alarms are not over 10 years old. Many students ask us where do we find the date the smoke alarm was manufactured.

We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends. We just wanted to let you know that on Dec 1st new regulations require owners of single or multi-family homes built prior to 1975 to replace expired and non-working smoke detectors with new ones equipped with a ten year sealed battery. Fire departments will be checking for compliance when they conduct smoke alarm inspections.
We always tell all of our students to check with the local fire department to make sure they understand what is required for the property to pass the smoke alarm inspection. The fire marshal has created a consumer fact sheet for smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detectors which you can find by clicking here
I just finished talking to one of our students. She needed a copy of her Continuing Education Certificate, because her entire office is being audited by the Board of Licensure. That’s right its not a typo. On Monday the office was notified that every agent in her office has to send in their Continuing Education Certificate.
So, while I was talking with her I could hear the stress in her voice and she only needed a new certificate showing she finished the classes. I could only image the stress and anxiety an agent is feeling that has not completed the 12 hours of continuing education and stated that it was complete when they sent in their renewal.
As agents we already have enough stress and anxiety in our day to day lives. We really do not need to be adding anymore. While on the phone I thought to myself, “How can I help relieve the stress some of the agents are going through about this audit?” I quickly created a $50 off coupon (Coupon Code: EE75) that she could share with everyone in the office that needs to take the 12 hours of continuing education. So, if you have not completed your continuing education for your license renewal don’t delay. You or your office could receive an audit letter from the Board of Licensure. Go ahead and register online today.
Each of our online continuing education classes are a 2 hour video presentation with no tests or quizzes. Our program also keeps track of your time, so you can pick up where you left off when you log back in.
Please feel free to share this offer with agents in your office. We always appreciate and value the referrals we receive from our students.
