"I have wanted to do real estate for some years and some things have not lined up. So to have a class where I could be informed properly before making an investment in this economy is invaluable! I appreciate Jarett's expertise, knowledge, and candidness. He created a win-win situation and I look forward to working with him!" - Najm

"Shaffer Realty's free real estate training course has been a true gift. Whether you are interested in becoming a real estate agent or just an informed consumer, Jarett Shaffer makes the material simple and easy to understand." - Rachel

"Jarett's ability to teach students from different cultural backgrounds was impressive. I, myself, am known to be more visual in my learning and the real life applications he used to illustrate the principals of real estate profoundly helped me. Thank you Jarett, for taking the time out of your schedule to educate and inspire us!" - Sandra J.

"Never having bought or sold any property, I was a complete novice to the Real Estate industry. I was concerned that in a condensed class week I wouldn't be able to keep up or that a lot of information or terms would go over my head. Mr. Shaffer has done an incredibly job condensing the coursework and making it easy to understand without ever becoming overwhelming. The explanations were broken down, and we were given real life examples of how and when we would need what we have learned. The class was educational, engaging, and inspirational with a "no pressure" atmosphere that makes the course perfect for someone who wants to know more about Real Estate, but it is also beneficial for buyers and sellers to be more informed about what goes into buying and selling property. I'd give Mr. Shaffer's course an A++!!" - Jessica L.
