Class Description:

  • In today’s market, brokers are so busy that more and more things fall between the cracks. One of the biggest areas that causes liability is lack disclosure and not handling the inspection process properly, resulting in complaints and law suits. There is a lot of misunderstanding of what a broker should be doing and the proper ways in which inspection / inspection issues should be handled and it is one of the least covered areas in real estate education. Don’t be left exposed! This course will help you learn ways to properly:
    • Disclose material defects
    • Understand how to avoid slandering a property and damaging your buyer or seller
    • Make disclosure to the opposing party
    • Properly Handle Inspections (it probably is NOT what you have been doing!)
    • Handle Resolutions and Concessions or other creative options


John Gillam is a 3rd generation real estate broker. After working in New Mexico in social work, John came to Colorado in 2000 to begin his career in real estate. Working in the Durango area afforded John the ability to work with other brokers to gain experience in both rural and urban markets as well as seeing the complexities of varying commercial markets and farm and ranch properties. Being able to support clients from those buying their first home, to those selling their last, has been a privilege. Licensed in both Colorado and New Mexico, he originally started as a sales Manager with an office in Durango. He began teaching pre-license courses in 2004 and found a passion for working with brokers in realizing the importance of the role they play in their communities. He tries to develop greater understanding of how brokers may better protect themselves and their clients through a stronger knowledge of their relationships, contracts and exploring broader options for their clients and knowing how to best communicate those. John continues to be active in his local Board of Realtors, was a chair for the CREN MLS for over 4 years, and outside of real estate continues working in the social service arena act.
