Kenneth M. Vidar, CCIM, EMS
"Creative Real Estate Solutions"
Kenneth M. Vidar will demonstrate how to turn formulas into real estate, and real estate into dollars. He presents them in a format of posing a problem and then solves it. This course looks back at actual transactions that provided both great results for the clients and generous compensation to the brokers.

Some of the topics covered in this course include: The Art of Restructuring Investments; The Creation of Wealth; Purchase vs. Option; Equity Conversions Through Options; Development Formulas; Restructuring Paper; Lower The Interest for Higher Yield; Land Leases; Discount Sale/Buyback; The Order of Acceptability; Divide the Equity; The Overtrade; Preferred Position; Creation of Wealth; De-financing; Safety First Formula; Subdivide for Profits; Have Fun with Retirement...and much more.

The course is geared towards commercial and investment real estate professionals as well as residential brokers who wish to step beyond conventional buying and selling. This "how to" course demonstrates through the use of formulas, how to both build your own (or your clients) estate, and how to locate more transactions and structure them for greater profit.

Many of these formulas have been the cornerstone of real estate fortunes in the modern creative real estate business.

A partial list of Ken’s successes and credentials include being honored with the National Association of Realtors’ Most Outstanding Commercial Investment Transaction Award; Instructor for the National CCIM program from 1983-1993; Previous Vice President of the NW Region of the CCIM; First Vice President of the National Society of Exchange Counselors, (SEC); President of Northern California CCIM Chapter, and the moderator and featured speaker for many national conferences in the U.S. and Canada.
