Realtors! Become a PUSD Expert. Next Realtor Certification Course – April 22

Recently, I was on a school tour as a PUSD Certified agent, where I met a couple who really liked the school. Then I saw them again at an Open House, and they subsequently asked me to represent them in purchasing a new home in the area.Pilar Oliva | PFAR Member, PUSD Certified REALTOR®

Recognizing the enormously important role realtors play in influencing the community’s view of our public schools, the Pasadena Educational Foundation works collaboratively with area realtors, Pasadena Education Network (PEN), and the PUSD to provide opportunities for realtors to learn more and get further connected to our schools.

Pasadena-area Realtors can become certified local public school experts at our PUSD Realtor Certification Courses, created in partnership with the Pasadena-Foothills Association of REALTORS, held twice per year. Realtors learn about PUSD’s innovative programs, get conversation starters and useful talking points for their clients, take a Realtor-only school tour, and discover the many options available to families in our area.

We have certified almost 60 Realtors so far with classes being held on a different campus each time.
