Service Dogs, ADA and the Fair Housing Law*
*Since 1991, Laurel has been involved in training and competing with German shepherd dogs. She has written and taught dog obedience courses, and has attended numerous dog training schools and workshops. She was an evaluator for Therapy Dogs, Inc., and evaluated dogs for a regional medical center pet therapy program. One of Laurel’s most rewarding experiences came from training a dog that ultimately became a Psychiatric Service Dog for a woman who endured years of abuse as a child and struggles from PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome). Currently Laurel is training her personal dog to be an assistance dog. Because of this involvement with dogs, Laurel was moved to author the course about service dogs and the real estate laws. More about that side of Laurel's life is documented on her blog, Laurel and Her Dogs.
.....The internet course was a great option since it allowed me to work at my own pace and avoid taking two weeks off of work. However, I would definitely recommend that anyone taking the internet course take you up on the offer to sit in on the review day of your classroom session. The ability to get a review from a live person, ask questions and get advice on taking the test was well worth taking the day off to attend. ......Gary Hermsen, Cornerstone Business Services, Green Bay
.....I want to thank you for being a wonderful teacher! You made the class fun and instead of just reading from the book, you gave lots of examples and stories. For someone knowing nothing about real estate, I came a long way in a short period of time. You are definately doing your job right! :) It was nice getting to know you! You rock Laurel! I love your personality and will recommend you to anyone interested in taking the course!! .....Erin Gauthier, Worthington Realty, Manitowoc
......I just wanted to say “thank you” again for a great class. I passed the test and am thrilled. It had been a goal of mine to take the class and pass the test and you made it all possible! ......Lisa Darr, REMAX Universal Realty, Plymouth.
......You have a special gift for teaching. I enjoyed being your student and having the opportunity to learn from your experiences. .....Mary Pat O’Connor, O’Connor Sales and Realty, Clintonville.
.....I was ready to put off my dreams of becoming a Realtor because doing the on-line course and trying to study at home just was not working. Then after running into an old friend who is in Real Estate, I was told about your course and I can't thank you enough for all you did. Your classes are packed with all the legal terms and regulations we need to know but you make it fun! You inspired me by the second day of class to not only become a Realtor, but I passed my Brokers exam a week after passing my Real Estate exam! Laurel you are the best! .....Amy Gutschow, Shorewest United Realtors, Sheboygan
......As you know, Real Estate is a second and totally different career. You have helped me to learn the ins and outs of sales and the knowledge to be a broker. You know the subject matter very well and have the experience and skill to make the subject matter interesting and fun. Without you, I could never have passed my tests for sales and to be a broker. .....Reg Gobin, Broker Associate, Prudential Preferred Properties, Appleton
.....It’s been a long time since you taught and coached me about the Real Estate industry and I am so glad you did. I have to tell you that you are the foundation to my success and I want to sincerely thank you for all the wonderful knowledge and the excitement you brought to the class in order to keep me attentive and inquisitive. I truly thank you. .....Michael James Wochos ABR, Century 21 "Acre Realty", Appleton
......Thanks for the great educational and real world hands on experience that you were able to bring to the class. After making one of the biggest career moves, the last thing that I needed to worry about was getting my real estate license. Your class was quick and thorough enough to get me into real world situations and understand what was happening throughout the acquisition. Thanks again for all your help and I will see you in April for your broker class. .....Joshua Pierre, Petroleum Division of Cornerstone Business Services, Inc., Green Bay
