Realtors association wraps up annual SCIS Designation program
The Sanibel & Captiva Islands Association of Realtors recently completed its Sanibel & Captiva Islands Specialist Designation program for 2018.
Offered once a year to association members, participants earn a unique and exclusive real estate designation that set themselves apart. Students are required to attend 12 classes that teach up-to-date information on all aspects of buying and selling real estate on the islands of Sanibel and Captiva.
Participants learn the history of the islands, become familiar with aspects of Sanibel city planning, learn about the Captiva Erosion Prevention District, discuss the differences in selling on-island versus selling on the county mainland, and how to market to buyers looking for condos and second homes.
Several of the islands non-profits are part of the instruction, as well. Students get practical experience and explore the Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum, the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge, the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife, BIG ARTS, and the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation.
