William Mansfield was born in New York City during a winter blizzard. He was raised under the sunshine of Southern California beaches. As an educator and author, he has been teaching classes in various real estate topics for over 25-years. He is a recognized authority on the subject with more than 40-years’ experience in the real estate industry.

IMPORTANT NOTE on CLOSED Classes: All the online classes and many of the on-campus classes close quickly. You should register ASAP if you are interested in any class. If you change your mind, please drop the class immediately so others can enroll. If the class is closed, consider the Wait List procedures; be aware of the rules and the limitations. Otherwise, consider these options: 1) register for another section if available; 2) register for another class; 3) consider registering in a future semester; 4) show up for the first day of an on-campus class and discuss with the instructor; or 5) forget about it and move on. The instructor will not intervene with the wait list procedure.

Please be aware that, once a class reaches maximum enrollment and “closes,” on or after the first day of the semester, even if “available” spaces appear on SURF due to drops, it is within the instructor's complete discretion on whether to add more students at that time. Drops after the first day are normal attrition and are factored in when setting the maximum enrollment. The class has started and important assignments and subject matter have already been covered. Please do not email the instructor. Thank you for your understanding.

Teaching Philosophy/Style and Class Management/Activities

I believe my role is to facilitate in the students’ learning experience.  With many years of real world experience as well as in the classroom, I use a variety of methods to assist my students to absorb that which is important and to place that knowledge into the context of what is needed in the real estate business.  Students are expected to complete assigned readings prior to class.  Rather than a review of the textbook through lecture, the class period will involve student interaction guided by the instructor.   This course will be cumulative, meaning students are responsible for information presented in earlier chapters on later quizzes and examinations during the course.
