"But I'm not interested in real estate" you say? Well of course you are! People don't realize it, but real estate affects nearly every aspect of our lives - we all need a place to sleep, a place to work, a place to shop, a place to go on vacation, etc., all of which involves real estate. Are you a marketing, management, finance, engineering, communication, economics, statistics, education, accounting, or entrepreneurship major? If so, then there is a place for you in the real estate industry. Even if you don't plan to work in the real estate industry, you probably plan to buy a house someday. At the very least, we can make you the most knowledgeable buyer west of the Mississippi.
