Nina, it was an honour to have you as our teacher. You are providing such a valuable service to the real estate industry by creating the PRA Training program. Throughout your course, you have constantly acknowledged the important role the PRA assistant plays. It makes us feel good to have such recognition. You delivered the course in a professional manner. You stressed over and over to always respect the preferences of our own licensees. In the assignments, you made us think how we can self-improve to better serve our licensees and to benefit ourselves. You also made us think of a marketing plan that would benefit our licensee that we could actually accomplish this year. You taught us the tools to help our licensees run a smooth business which would help them grow.
The course was extremely organized. Nina, you created a family atmosphere in that class. You patiently allowed us to bombard you with all sorts of questions. You were always approachable and accessible before the course even started, during the class, and after class hours. We are going to miss you. We can't thank you enough.

For Sandy Berry, NewPort Realty
I want to say thanks again [and again] for the amazing 6-day Foundations Training course [a.k.a. PRA Bootcamp] ~ for your expert delivery as well as your ongoing support and encouragement. I found the course cram-packed with everything one could imagine to be teachable in this context ... packaged and handled for success by even a Newbie such as myself. It was empowering to receive the manual well in advance, with initial assignment done ahead of Day One. The course's quality takeaway materials enable in-depth review and further study. It's fantastic to have not only a manual but additionally, a complete sample pack with checklists and co-relating pointers, great for handy reference and self-paced study ... and for confidence building. I'll be fully prepared to establish and enjoy a new career as a real estate assistant.
Helen Pierce, Unlicensed PRA™ professional real estate assistant
I loved that we could discuss a topic as long as we needed. The small class size made it more personal.
Linda Pfann, Licensed REALTOR®
With Peter Pfann, Cornerstone Properties
"Dear Nina, I wanted to send this letter as a gesture of my appreciation for the excellent training program that you provided my assistant, Katalin Feher. At the end of each day of your instruction, Katalin would check in with me to disclose her thoughts and positive feelings toward the many details and strategies that were presented. This was well beyond my personal instruction. I can already see the benefits evolving within my real estate sales activities. The value of the time that I have saved is far beyond the modest cost of your course. It was also the most timely program to compliment approximately four other GVREB courses that Katalin had completed prior to enrollment. I would highly recommend the PRA program to any sales person that has a real business plan and values a committed support person when they find the one."

- Lisa Salt, REALTOR®
"I recently completed the PRA™ Foundations course. I have been an unlicensed assistant for almost three years and truly wish I had been given the opportunity to take this course sooner. It gives the unlicensed assistant a foundation of knowledge and understanding that is crucial to performing the job at an optimal level. It explains not only what needs to be done, but more importantly, why it needs to be done. Nina and her team have created a system for each step in the buying/selling process & this is explained and shown so that even a brand new assistant can understand the process. It is a very intensive program that requires a lot of hard work and thought, but with very tangible results.
I have been back in the office for six days now and have already made some significant changes to our current systems. I am really excited to have all this new knowledge that will allow me to contribute so much more to the REALTOR® I work for and to our brokerage in general. I would have no hesitation in recommending new or experienced assistants take the PRA™ Foundations course."
