Discussion with Real Estate trainer/author Chilla Riddle.

What is “organized real estate” and why you would consider becoming a voluntary member

In a previous post I discussed “The acronyms” of “organized real estate“. The purpose of that post was twofold:

New Real Estate Education program announced by @RECOHelps – Begins 2019
