Continuing Education: GCAAR Sales Contract by Mark Simon


Some of us who have attended continuing education classes for many years have seen more our share of poor instructors. I had a very positive experience of being a student observing an outstanding instructor presenting the GCAAR Sales Contract continuing education class at Village Settlements in Kentlands.

I highly recommend the classes taught by Mark Simon, a partner at Parker, Simon, Hahn & DeLisi, LLC and Village Settlements. The charming hostess for the event was Leslie Childs, the Executive Director of Marketing at Village Settlement, 301-556-4918. She is the person to contact for information on the spring classes. They always provide snacks and beverages for class attendees.

Mark Simon was a real estate broker before becoming an attorney many years ago. His experience assures smooth real estate settlements. Mark's direct number at Village Settlements is 301-556-4915.

Oh yes Roy, some instructors are so boring and you can't wait for the class to be over. It's nice to be able to recommend a good one!

Good morning Roy. I have seen some pretty poor instructors over the years. But, luckily, more good than bad! Enjoy your day!

Good morning, Roy. I am certain this will be well-attended. The quality of instructor can certainly make or break a course. Sounds like this one knows how to teach.  Happy Friday. D

Hello Roy - finding the right match regardless of what field is so important. That is especially true for education where the information given by the instructor spreads far. A nice shout out to Mark Simon.
