Wrapping up 2016
Just about everyone from every industry can agree that 2016 was full of memorable moments and bizarre votes. For us, the real estate market was an entity in constant upward motion throughout the year, and it was an interesting topic to cover and teach.
We’re really excited to launch the Marketing Essentials and Marketing Plan course and drill a great deal deeper into our Professor Highlight series in 2017, and look forward to having you along for the ride!
From all of the faculty at the Homburg Institute, we hope you have an excellent holiday and a fantastic 2017.
