A veteran of the real estate industry, Anthony E. Westreich serves as chairman and CEO of Monday Properties in New York City. To remain involved with his professional community, Anthony Westreich belongs to the Real Estate Board of New York, an organization that unites more than 16,000 professionals in the real estate sector throughout New York City.
One of the major focuses of the organization is education. The board allows individuals to take both continuing education and licensing courses online so that they can fit the classes into their busy schedules. People can become licensed as a New York State real estate salesperson with the board’s 75-hour online class or as New York State broker with a 45-hour class that has different packages depending on individual needs. Individuals licensed as salespeople before July 1, 2008, can also take the required 30-hour remedial course online.
Real estate agents in New York are expected to complete 22.5 hours of continuing education credits every two years. The board has partnered with several online classrooms to provide a wide range of coursework.
