Real Estate Notes

Long & Foster Realtors will hold seminars on ÒA Career in Real EstateÓ. They have designed the seminars to address the questions of people who have often thought of going into business for themselves in real estate but do not know how to investigate the Òpros and consÓ. Seminar discussions will be on how to get started in a real estate career, the course requirements, costs involved in training, and the benefits of a real estate career.

The career night seminars are free of charge and open to the public. The seminars for March will be held at the following times and locations:
