What Students Are Saying
“Jason Tom is very knowledgeable in the subject area and shared many helpful real-world examples. He was very positive, helpful and encouraged us to work towards making our own RE deals. He knows the confidence issue that new investors face and broke down those barriers by sharing his knowledge of the RE marketplace.”
“In the past, I have owned rental properties, flipped a house that was about to be auctioned and built a couple of houses on previously undeveloped land. Compared to most individuals, I thought that I knew just about everything when it comes to buying, building, managing and selling real estate. The OTA real estate courses have opened my mind and expanded my knowledge to make fewer mistakes that can lead me into greater opportunities in shorter time, that can pay off richly. Jason Tom is very upbeat with a sense of humor that made listening to him fun as he was delivering vital information that can guide students into a new future career in real estate. Thank you, Denver OTA!”
“They teach you how to fish.”
