COVID-19 discount offered on real estate licensing course
Abe Lee Seminars Offers New Career Opportunity to Workers Affected By Shutdown
Abe Lee Seminars, one of Hawaii’s leading real estate education providers, is offering a major discount on its online independent study pre-license course to assist workers who have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting shutdown.
The course, which normally costs $475, will be offered for $250, representing a 47% discount.
Abe Lee Seminars, which marks 40 years in business this year, offered the same type of discount in March 2008 when Aloha Airlines abruptly ended operations and almost 2,000 employees lost their jobs. Currently, the state is facing more than 180,000 unemployment claims filed since March, when the first case of the global viral outbreak was confirmed in Hawaii.
â€œThe pandemic has caused tremendous financial hardship for many people who have lost their jobs, furloughed, or had their hours reduced,” said school owner Abe Lee, who also is principal broker of Century 21 iProperties Hawaii. “We want to offer them the opportunity for a new career in the real estate industry.”
â€œBesides residential and commercial sales, getting a license can open other doors as well – such as mortgage lending, escrow work, property management, timeshare sales,” Lee said. “There are also opportunities for those who want to keep their other job â€“ they can be a referral agent and earn commissions for referring leads to full-time agents.â€
The independent study pre-license course is approved by the Hawaii Real Estate Commission and certified for the stateâ€™s real estate licensing requirements. Applicants must be 18 years of age and a U.S. citizen or an alien authorized to work in the United States.
