Old Dominion Realty Top Producers "Sell Away" for a Bahamas Cruise


Mike Pugh and Cathy Ward, Old Dominion Realty Brokers, recently hosted a team of their top producing real estate agents and staff members on a five-day, four-night cruise to the Bahamas.  Old Dominion Realty's team members were challenged with strict performance specifications over the last year to be included as a part of the retreat.  ­The members who participated in the retreat achieved and even exceeded their goals.

"We like to recognize the hard work of our talented, professional real estate agents and team members at Old Dominion Realty," commented Pugh.  "Travelling to ports of call like Port Canaveral, Cococay, and Nassau, gave us a chance to escape the cold, Virginia winter and relate to each other as adventurers, relaxation seekers, and cruisers and instead of co-workers."

Old Dominion Realty Top Producers Port of Call

Approximately 60 sales associates, staff members and their family members set sail from Port Canaveral, FL on Royal Caribbean's Enchantment of the Seas® ship on March 2, 2015  enjoying onboard and off board adventures like RCCL Vitality Spa and fitness center, rock-climbing wall, fine dining, Broadway-style entertainment, and relaxing by the pool or on the beaches of the Bahamas.

"Incentives for Realtors like a cruise to the Bahamas help to create a successful and rewarding business environment giving us a chance to celebrate our successes together.  This year's cruise challenge brought a lot of excitement throughout our offices, and we're certain future challenges will do the same," said Pugh.

The In's and Out's of Becoming a Licensed Real Estate Agent in Virginia

To obtain a License to sell real estate in the state of Virginia an individual must attend an approved required 60 hour pre-licensing course called Principles of Real Estate.  This course is offered in several different formats.

1) Community Colleges and Universities such as Virginia Tech and New River Community College have offered this class in a semester long format.

2) Correspondence courses provide printed materials for self-study and are available through Moseley Real Estate School and other providers.

3) Online study is available through McKissock and other providers.

4) Classroom format is available at our Old Dominion Harrisonburg Office. We have partnered with Moseley Real Estate School to offer this service.  Visit the Career page at ODRVA.com for more information.

The Virginia Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation webpage identifies all approved providers for the Principles Class at this URL:

http://www.dpor.virginia.gov/uploadedFiles/MainSite/Content/Boards/Real_Estate/A490-02PRE_LIC_CRS.pdf

Once the classroom work is complete, a candidate must schedule and sit for 2 portions of a PSI examination and pass the National and State portions of that exam.  When both portions of this exam have been passed an applicant can then apply for a license at DPOR (Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation) or REB (Real Estate Board).
