Keeping up with current trends in the real estate market, as well as the rigid and ever-changing demands it brings, is not an easy task. However, if you’re a Realtor working hard to sell
luxury homes in Austin, TX, then Sterling Custom Homes wants to assist you with that task. Sterling Custom Homes is offering seven convenient, one-hour mandatory continuing education courses, taught by Master Builders Duke McDowell and Gary Grambley.

The courses were approved by the Texas Real Estate Commission, for Mandatory Continuing Education for Texas Realtors, and have a flexible class format.

“These courses will help Realtors better understand the steps
Texas custom home builders take to create luxury custom homes, from choosing the right home site to establishing a warranty,” said McDowell, president of Sterling Custom Homes. “They will be better equipped to sell custom homes in Austin and to succeed in a part of the market they may not have worked in before.”
