Yes, I am an ex-Realtor and I attended the Wayne Morgan course here in Austin, TX for 3 days and I was in complete shock.
"How to Get Rich in Real Estate and Still Have a Life" was the name of Wayne Morgan's course last fall that was a complete waste of 3 days and $200. He has another one starting soon.
I could not believe that the Texas Real Estate Commission gave 30 hours SAE or MCE credit for Realtors to attend this fiasco. It's no wonder Realtors have as good a reputation as used car salesmen. It was horrendous!
At one point he told everyone, that if someone asks you to do something, but then do not allow you to do it because they do no allow you to "talk" -- then "you are being scammed for the promoter to make their game".
So then he gave the entire group of 100+ or more a group cooperation assignment, then turned up the disco music in the room so loud that no one could hear above a scream to "cooperate" to do the task he gave everyone.
Bells went off for me immediately because he had just warned everyone that he was a "scammer making his game" when he turned up that disco music.
But you know something, 90 of the at least 100+ people there continued playing in spite of the loud music -- only about 10 people stepped away and sat down to wait for the "cows" to finish playing the ridiculous scam games Wayne Morgan devised.
I was in shock. I reported the entire 3 day waste of time to TREC last year, but they let him create 3 more TREC approved courses for Texas Realtors starting now.
Then after some amazingly tasteless comments about women, whom he calls chippies and a Nicole Simpson joke, we were given our Real Estate test on RE Marketing for TREC credit.
Nothing of what he gave in those three days was on the test. Even though he said that all the huge sticky notes he wrote all around the room would be on the test -- none were -- so I saw lots of people cheating on the exam.
He had instructed everyone, that if the rules are not carefully written and there is no one to enforce them, then just lie and cheat -- so tons of the Realtors did just that to past the test after that 30 hours of useless - con-game, nonsense and cruelty from this loser and his wife, owners of AustinInstitute.com for Realtor training.
This is why some Realtor's lie and cheat to "make their game if no one is watching or enforcing". They are trained to do so in TREC approved courses.
It is a complete sham and a scam in my view. Anyone who wastes a dime on ANY Wayne Morgan course is an IDIOT!
