COLUMBUS, Ohio, June 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Hondros College of Business President Tina Lapp has been installed as 2016-2017 President of the Real Estate Educators Association (REEA). Lapp was inaugurated at the 2016 REEA Conference in Denver on June 10, 2016. REEA provides resources and opportunities for professional development to individuals and organizations involved in Real Estate education, and is dedicated to delivery of high-quality sales associates to the nation's real estate brokers, regulators, and, ultimately, to consumers.
Tina has been a leader in Real Estate education for over two decades, and knows the value of high standards that drive quality education and its importance to the real estate industry. In her more than 22-year career at the Hondros College of Business, she has helped to provide pre-license education to over 300,000 real estate agents. Lapp's industry experience and her dedication to quality education also has led her, and Hondros, to continue to question proposed changes to Ohio's pre-license education statutes.
"Real estate professionals play a critical role in assisting their clients with navigating what arguably is the largest financial transaction of their lives," said Tina Lapp. "Consequences for consumers harmed by licensee negligence can be life changing and financially devastating. That's why we need to strengthen Ohio's pre-license education requirements."
According to Lapp, the most important part of her job as REEA president will be maintaining the organization's focus on producing high-quality sales associates that can successfully serve the nation's real estate brokers, regulators, and, ultimately, consumers.
"I'm proud to be serving this organization and I look forward to working on a team of professionals that is passionate about education and facing the challenges of the rapidly changing real estate environment."
