Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Verani Realty (Verani) is launching the Verani School of Real Estate to offer NH-accredited real estate salesperson pre-licensing courses and courses that provide continuing education credits (CEUs) for real estate salespeople. Monika McGillicuddy, program director and seasoned real estate professional with over 30 years of education and training experience, will lead the courses, which begin Wednesday, April 26 at Verani’s Portsmouth office located at 111 Maplewood Avenue.

“We strongly believe in the value of education and mentorship so launching the real estate school truly is a natural progression for Verani,” McGillicudy said. “I am excited to kick off our new program this April and look forward to engaging with individuals who are enthusiastic about starting their real estate career.”

Approved by the New Hampshire Real Estate Commission, the in-person 40-hour pre-licensing courses at the Verani School of Real Estate consist of nine, four-hour sessions on Wednesdays from 6 to 10 pm and one, eight-hour Saturday session from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm. Participants must attend all nine sessions to receive a certificate of completion and to qualify to take the New Hampshire Real Estate Salesperson Exam. Classes will be taught through a combination of lectures, creative story telling of real world examples, sample tests and classroom games and activities that are meant to engage participants and help them better comprehend the material presented. The cost is $349 which includes the textbook and quizzes.

“As the largest real estate agency in New Hampshire with a 50-year track record, and given our emphasis on training and education, we believe that we can bring a lot of first-hand knowledge into the classroom and help students get a true sense of what it’s like to be an agent,” said Maggie Verani, the company’s CEO.
