On behalf of Myself, the Institute of Estate Agents of SA [IEASA] and Facilitators around the Country:
We would like to Wish All the Candidates who are registered to write the ‘First’ EAAB – PDE ‘ level 4 & 5 on-line’ – the Very Best for Your examination, today!!

Many of the Candidates around the Country, have contacted Ourselves and their Facilitators, in a panic, due to the last minute EAAB 2nd Communique, that was only sent out, yesterday!!
