I just finished my certificate lV in real estate practice with validum. The support system they provide is incredible! I felt that i wouldnt be able to... complete this certificate over multiple occasions, but they just go above and beyond with every one of they're students. They consistently touch base whether that's over a phone call and email just to see how well your progressing with your course and if you need any assistance. I felt really easygoing and supported throughout my experience here and definitely recommend to any future real estate agents.Thankyou so much again!read more
