Champions School of Real Estate Now Offering Certified Negotiation Expert Designation

Helping Brokers and Agents to Enhance their Business and Negotiation Skills

Dallas - Beginning in August, Champions School of Real Estate will offer the Certified Negotiation Expert (CNE) designation at its Dallas/Plano and Fort Worth campuses. The course will be taught by Instructor Henry Santamaria who has 30 plus years in commercial sales and brokerage and is a certified negotiations expert.

"Negotiating effectively is more than just knowing when to give and take," said Henry Santamaria. "It's about understanding the way people think and having the tools to apply to all types of bargaining situations. This course will prepare agents to be excellent negotiators and provide them with the proper tools."

The CNE course highlights the classic approaches to bargaining, the psychology of buying, persuasion principles, planning guides, role playing and much more. Students who take the course will be awarded the designation after two days of training and can be used as a nine hour elective for agents' mandatory education courses (MCE). There are no annual dues for this designation.

"Real estate agents and brokers negotiate everyday," said Champions School of Real Estate owner Rita Santamaria. "The difference between those who have had proper training and those who have not shows in the way agents work with and interact with their clients during negotiation time, which is why this designation is so important."

The course will run two days from 9:00 am - 4:00 pm at the Dallas Plano campus on August 8 - 9 and October 18 -19 and in Fort Worth on September 18 - 19 and November 7 - 8. Students can enroll in the courses by calling a career counselor at 972-867-4100 or online at ChampionsSchool.com. The cost of the course is $250. TREC Legal and Ethics can be added for $40.

"We encourage anyone looking to become an expert negotiator to choose to be a Champion," said Rita Santamaria.
