CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Sandy Williams, DREI, CDEI, an instructor with the Charlotte Regional Realtor® Association’s Mingle School of Real Estate, was awarded Program of the Year by the North Carolina Real Estate Educators Association (NCREEA) for the elective course, "Tackling What Ifs: Potential Obstacles on the Field," a course that she co-authored with Attorney Rick S. Poe, Esq.

She is an active member of NCREEA, where she has held every office in the organization.

"Tackling What Ifs: Potential Obstacles on the Field" is a four-hour interactive continuing-education course that was created to educate licensees about the legal pitfalls they could encounter when representing buyers or sellers in a transaction.
