This book is designed to not only prepare you for successfully passing the New York State Real Estate Licensing Examination, but to also prepare you for a successful real estate career. This book is divided into three parts. The first part of this book provides the knowledge necessary for you to obtain a license to pursue the real estate profession. The second part covers the application of that knowledge which can serve as a precursor for achieving success in real estate. The third parts focuses on identifying the specific niche to which that knowledge would be applied. This section will concentrate on the development of steps and systems to apply the knowledge, inlcuding effective operations during a period of a health crisis. It is with these three basic concepts that I write this book in hopes that you too can achieve the successes that have followed me throughout my career!
