The Displaced Homemakers Network of New Jersey and the Center for Real Estate Education in Hackensack have partnered to create the NJ Women in Real Estate Education Initiative.
Through this program, qualifying women may receive a grant to take a six-week real estate education course that will include, the required licensing class to become a New Jersey real estate salesperson, property management certification, office management and transaction coordinator certification, and fieldwork internships.
“Many of our clients are coming out of a divorce or have been working in the home for many years. They are looking for careers that enable them to be both the breadwinner and caretaker. Our Centers help women find employment that meets their diverse family needs,” says Laura Troy, president of the Displaced Homemakers Network of New Jersey. “The Center for Real Estate Education developed a comprehensive real estate education program that provides training for multiple career options within real estate.”
Our Centers help women find employment that meets their diverse family needs.
The fieldwork internships will be offered through the Alexander Anderson Real Estate Group, based in Hackensack. The Alexander Anderson Real Estate Group is also providing scholarships to supplement a portion of each tuition, allowing more women to take advantage of the program.
The two organizations will hold an Informational Launch event on July 23, from 6:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. at the Center for Real Estate Education at 66 Moore St. in Hackensack.
