Office Meetings

 

The office meetings at Evergreen West Realty are well attended and very popular. Our meetings keep our licensees informed on industry regulations, requirements and ongoing changes. It is a valuable service to all licensees to have the most reliable source of information. Our managing broker has a passion for keeping up to date on the constantly evolving real estate industry. He freely makes this knowledge available to our licensees.
