Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Gary Greene announced that Dianne McCoy, director of professional development, has been appointed by the Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) as an Educator member of its newly created Education Curriculum Standards Advisory Committee.
Following interviews, nine professionals were selected for this state-wide committee, which also includes three additional members representing the public. Members are responsible for reviewing and revising educational curriculum standards, course-content requirements and instructor-certification requirements for core and mandatory continuing education courses for real estate professionals in Texas.
“Dianne has done an amazing job since she joined us earlier this year,” said Marilyn Eiland, partner with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Gary Greene. “Utilizing her outstanding leadership skills, she helped keep us current on important industry issues. She will be a great asset to this important TREC committee.”
McCoy Receives MCE Approval
McCoy was also recently approved by the commission to instruct legal, ethics, broker responsibility and core real estate courses. She also serves on the Texas Association of Realtors Professional Standards Committee and Faculty Assessment Panel.
“In the last few months, we have established Gary Greene University, which will provide additional education programming for our managers, agents and licensed staff,” McCoy said. “In addition, the company was recently approved by TREC as a Mandatory Continuing Education (MCE) provider.”
With this approval, the company is able to provide MCE programs in-house for licensed management, agents and staff. “We will offer the programs at our Corporate Training Center, and I will take them to our 20 offices and/or regional locations as a convenience for our busy agents and staff,” she said.
Keeping Agents Up to Date
According to McCoy, the real estate industry is constantly on the move, just like their agents. Her role is to support the company’s management, licensed agents and staff allowing them to do what they do best: provide superior client services, while she keeps them up to date on legal, ethical and procedural issues.
“Sharing the changes and keeping all licenses current helps us all provide the best in professional services to our clients,” she said.
