KILLER COMPS FOR CMA’S
3 Hour CE Class
June 1st 9 am
1803 Woodland Park Drive, Layton
The Killer Comps class grew out of response to student requests for more specific guidelines for adjusting comps after taking the Appraising for Realtors class. Neal Jackman, having worked with UtahRealEstate.com on the revision of the CMA program in 2009, presents the theory behind comp selection and adjustments found on their website. By gaining a better understanding of the process, the Realtor student will learn how to select better comps, gain confidence in the CMA program, and develop valuations more consistent with appraisal valuations. Specific hands on evaluations are developed in class to demonstrate the process. Laptops are encouraged for use in class.
After careers in the Marine Corps and the jewelry industry, Neal entered the wild world of real estate in 1993, as a Certified Residential Appraiser. Employed by a default mortgage servicer, he has
completed property valuations on preforeclosure and bank owned properties located in almost every state, and was the project manager (dirty little jobs officer) for the bank owned (REO) department working with the foreclosure, bankruptcy, and loss mitigation departments in resolving a wide variety of problems. This foundation, led to becoming the in house REO sales agent marketing northern Utah properties and obtaining his Broker license in 2009. He has served as a member of the Education Committee with the Salt Lake Board of Realtors for ten years and served as Chairman in 2011-2012. He has also served as a member of the Grievance Committee, Salt Lake Board Professional Standards Committee, and currently on the Utah Board Pro Standards Committee. Deeply committed to education, Neal is a continuing education instructor having authored three very popular classes on property valuation and the Code of Ethics, NAR instructor for the Pricing Strategy Analyst certification, as well as teaching pre-license classes for aspiring sales agents and Brokers.
