DISON, NJ — School is in session for New Jersey’s commercial real estate community. On Feb. 28, TriState REALTORS® Commercial Alliance — a leading ad- vocate and provider of continuing education for commercial real estate practitioners in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware — introduced The Commercial Real Estate School of New Jersey to a packed house at the New Jersey Conven- tion and Exposition Center in Edison. The well-attended course, Cost Segregation For The Com- mercial Broker, was led by instructor Jerry H.

entiates itself by offering courses specific to the business of today’s commercial real estate market. The school is designed to help brokers meet the state’s newly estab- lished qualifications for license renewal. In order to qualify for renewal or to reinstate a license, the New Jersey Real Estate Commission now requires that every broker, salesperson or broker-salesperson complete 12 hours of continuing education — six hours of core topics and six hours of electives — by July 1, 2013. “The great success of The Commercial Real Estate School of New Jersey’s first course offering is extremely encouraging,” said Jonathan Glick, TriState’s New Jer- sey Vice President. “We knew there was a need for courses designed specifically for the brokerage community in New Jersey, and the high number of attendees helps to validate our decision to introduce the school. It’s gratifying to be able to aid New Jersey’s commercial real estate professionals in this way.” Utilizing a model that has proved to be successful in Pennsylvania and Delaware, TriState’s New Jersey school offers specialized courses that fall within the core and elective topics required by the state. Other course topics will include Crash Course in CRE Ethics and Land Use, Sustainability in Commercial Real Estate and Office Leasing, and Supply and Demand in a Recovering Market. “While this first course was a great opportunity for brokers in New Jersey to get a head start on meeting the state’s new CE requirements, there will be many more course offerings to follow,” Glick said. “We urge all commercial professionals in New Jersey to come find out what it’s like to attend a school that is tailored specifically to their needs.” Founded in 1993, the TriState REALTORS® Commercial Alliance is a leading advocate for commercial real estate professionals in New Jersey, Delaware and Southeastern Pennsylvania. TriState operates The Commercial Real Estate School of New Jersey, which focuses on continuing education, creating an opportunity to network and presenting industry-oriented seminars. TriState seeks to advance the financial well being, industry stature, and professional growth of each member. The group also speaks as a unified voice on legislative and community issues, promotes ethical standards of conduct and provides specialized services relative to the needs of its members. n
