CP-20 Commission Position Statement on Licensed and Unlicensed Real Estate Administrative Professionals (“REAPs”)
At their meeting on April 6, 2021, the Colorado Real Estate Commission (“the Commission”) adopted revisions to Commission Position Statement 20.

    The most recent NAR Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers reports that 87% of buyers identified negotiation skills as a very important quality for their real estate agents. Since another key element of success is developing and sustaining relationships, agents must consider not only the outcome of a negotiation but also their rapport with the other party. This course provides negotiation strategies that enable you to achieve mutually satisfying results rather than haggling over issues that can derail transactions. Through highly-interactive role playing activities, you will develop and practice scripts that can prepare you to successfully negotiate with all parties in a transaction, including clients, other agents, and service providers.
