|GHS™ - Generational Housing Specialist™ Certificate|
"'Generational Housing' is a college-level real estate marketing course wrapped up in a quick-reading 149 pages. It is insightful in its division of America’s generations into attitudes and preferences. It goes into detail on marketing approaches that are likely to be successful to various age groups based on life experiences and influences. But this is not just another sales guru how-to-get-their-money book that serves neither the consumer nor, ultimately, the professional. 'Generational Housing' reminds the true real estate professional that understanding the client's needs must come first."
