ALL IT TAKES IS ONE CLICK!


Our 200th follower: Raffy dela Rosa

The family behind CES Academy would like to take this opportunity to thank all our students, followers and everyone else who are continually patronizing our real estate education services for the past six years. Your loyalty is our priority, that is why at this time and age where everything is "ON" line, we make sure you do not forget us by making sure we are visible and trending inside the social networking scene. 


We started with a Facebook fanpage last February 2011, and in less than four months, we are lucky to have gathered more than 200 trustworthy followers: mostly our former and present students, some our hopefully new recruits :).


We promised to feature the 200th person to like our page, and luckily, that person was kind enough to agree on answering some questions from us for this blog post. 




Friends, meet JOSE RAFAEL G. DELA ROSA.






Or, you may call him RAFFY. 


For the past twelve years, he has been freelancing on brokering different classifications of properties. If you are into commercial leasing particularly for call center sites and multinational companies, make sure you do business with him as this is his specialty dish. 


When not working, he is a full time husband and a doting father to a very handsome son...








He attended our CPE seminar last February 4,5 and 6, 2011 at the CES Academy Training Center at Cityland Tower, Makati. 


We asked Raffy to tell a few words about Mr. Cesar Santos and the Academy:

"Mr. Santos is very familiar and knowledgeable with the real estate trade practices in the Philippines and willingly shares this to his students. he is very approachable and sees to it that all students are able to understand the process and approaches for each real estate transaction. To CES Academy, more power and continue assisting would be real estate practitioners. All the best!"

To Sir Raffy, thank you for the kind words and of course, your trust to us. We hope that we are able to do our part in inspiring you to be better real estate practitioners. Likewise, we can't wait for your turn to pay it forward. Cheers!



PRC releases its program for the July 31 Appraiser's Exam

Kudos, PRC!

Because today's (June 25) seminar was cancelled (blame it on that "angry bird"), we kept ourselves busy by sending out as many additional reference materials as we can to our dear CRES Appraisal Batch 1 and 2 students.

On top of our list is the Program for the Appraiser's Licensure Exam on July 31, 2011. It has been running at the then-Downloadables section of the PRC website for almost 2 weeks already. Lately, their website was not accessible, I thought it was poor internet connection or firewall-ing. Turns out they have upgraded their site- simpler and more user-friendly. I should have taken a screen cap of the former layout, so I can make a before-and-after comparison.

Anyhow, here's how the PRC website looks like NOW:


Neat, huh?

The best part is, the DOWNLOADS portion now lets you download documents as PDF FILE that you can save AND share! As a matter of fact, I quickly disseminated the file to everyone in our Appraisal CRES directory. GOOD JOB PRC!


MOVING FORWARD......It's crucial to highlight the two most important information stated in the program: SCHEDULE and SUBJECTS.

SCHEDULE:
7:00-7:45am        -   General Filling of Information

6.     Case Studies
