lucid sorting out of a somewhat obscure subject matter.
Very helpful introduction to the topic.
The course was jam-packed with information that was presented in a thorough and clear/understandable way, and the speakers' enthusiasm for the topic (which, for me, was a very dry one) made it palatable and even interesting.
Spot on. And great teamwork.
One of your best courses. The instructors did not waste time with stories. They were experts in this area of the law and hit the key points in an efficient manner. In fact, the course could have been longer.
EXCELLENT OVERVIEW - GREAT PRESENTATION
The presenters were knowledgeable and clear. Very well done.
Very clear presentation. Highly informative.
Messrs. Block & Curran really know their stuff. Very good program.
good for basics however there are areas not covered such as a mechanic's lien filed by a broker for real estate commissions
This was a very good course. Excellent discussion of lien waivers.
Was hoping to learn more about what constitutes "cost of improvements" and bifurcation of loans into senior, building and project loans.
Very lively and informative!
Good speakers who really knew what they were talking about, and how to convey it effectively.
