Boards of REALTORS® We Have Partnered With

Comments from Boards of REALTORS® and Firm Members

“The services BrightPath provides are top quality. The best measure of success for our association is the feedback from our class participants, which has been extremely positive!”

“It is always a pleasure to work with BrightPath Education Services.  Our members enjoy attending a “Mel Black Appraisal class,” not only for the excellent information, but for the relaxed style by which Mel teaches paired with wit and humor.  Every program that we host through BrightPath Education is a seamless process from beginning to end, and we will continue to work with them for years to come!”

Comments from BrightPath Students

“Mel Black has tremendous experience in the appraisal industry, RE laws, and appraisal board experience. He is loaded with knowledge!”

“I have taken classes with Mel since the beginning of this school. As a retired RE educator, I give Mel an A+ in organization and communication with students.”

“The course content can be relevant but if the teacher can’t get it across, it’s unimportant. Mel Black is a great teacher! He holds your interest, gets it clear and to the point, and all with knowledge, credibility and a touch of humor. I take all of my continuing education here!!”
