Education requirements for license renewal have changed. Real estate licensees whose licenses expire before July 1, 2021, must complete at least 22.5 hours of continuing education (CE) credit including three hours of fair housing and one hour of agency (two hours if you’re in your first license cycle). REALTORS® must also take an approved Code of Ethics course every three years. All licensees whose licenses expire on or after July 1, 2021, are required to take 22.5 hours of CE credit including three hours of fair housing, one hour of agency (two hours in the first license cycle), two and a half hours of ethical business practices (includes NAR Code of Ethics training) and one hour of recent legal matters (may include statutes, laws, regulations, rules, codes, DOS opinions and decisions, and court decisions). Brokers who were previously exempt from earning CE credit will no longer be exempt when they renew their licenses after July 1, 2021.
This course satisfies the Fair Housing requirement.

About Our Guest Speaker
Paige Park is a Senior Loan Officer for CrossCountry Mortgage I grew up in Thailand, and bought my first condo at a very young age. I didn’t know enough about home loans, and ended up with a really bad loan term and interest rate. That experience made me resolve to help people understand their home financing. Now I’m involved in my local Thai community, run a YouTube channel where I explain the mortgage process in Thai, and have partnered with non-profit housing organizations to educate people on homeownership. I want to help you find the loan that’s best for you, and make sure you grasp the details, too. My favorite part of my job is finding grants for my clients, whether for down payments or closing costs. I consider it a success when I can offer you the right mortgage with the right terms. This is why I take time to explain the process and help you budget your money. No matter if this is your first home loan or your ninth, I will make sure you understand every aspect of your mortgage, and answer your questions from application to closing and beyond. Whether you want to buy a home, refinance, or renovate, I offer a variety of loan programs to fit your goals. From conventional and jumbo to FHA and VA, we will discuss specifics and personalize the experience to fit your needs. I can’t wait to get started on your home financing journey.
