Turn Your Home Into a School

by Tony Bruser 03/11/2019

Just because life “happened,” and you never made it to college doesn’t mean that you can’t be learning and improving all the time. Even if going to school now is out of the question due to family obligations and budgetary restraints, there are still ways to learn, and also earn degrees and certifications from home.

Free and low-cost online classes

Many online schools and universities provide free information access and offer courses that let you learn hobbies, software, and even curriculum for credit.

  • edX offers courses from many of the country’s top institution and even universities from other countries. You can take classes in computer science, languages, business, and even engineering. And these courses are taught by professors from Harvard, MIT, The University of Texas, and The Hong Kong Polytechnic University among other top tier schools.
  • Take low-cost courses from Udemy and choose from over 100,000 classes. Learn at your pace and on your schedule. Hone your skills in design, photography, software, marketing, business, and more subjects. And find courses in non-English languages as well, including Español, Português, Français, and others.
  • Attend an online-only school such as Western Governors’ University, founded by a group of state governors to offer a different form of education. Students take courses utilizing cutting-edge technology in non-traditional school terms to learn differently, master concepts, and earn degrees.
  • You can even study artificial intelligence, robotics, and other ground-breaking and innovative courses through Udacity. Study with industry thought leaders and learn world-class programs.

Also, there are a host of other free courses and classes streaming live on fitness, home repair, cooking, and myriad other subjects. As long as you have access to a device—computer, television, smartphone, you can learn from home.

Even learn a new language through an app on your phone. Duolingo, as one example, lets you learn nine different languages from your desktop, laptop, or phone in a game-type format where you can earn badges and tokens as your scores improve and your language ability develops. Then, top of your skills by logging into Hulu, Netflix, or Prime Video to watch movies and television shows in your new language to hone your abilities. Some online trade schools offer certification so you can make that next career move. With so many options available, you can learn almost anything from home to set you up for life.

If you learn better in the classroom, ask your neighborhood realtor to suggest classes, programs, and offerings in libraries, churches, and other locations in your new area.

Tony Bruser, Broker/Realtor

Welcome! This website is designed to be a simple and effective way to search San Diego real estate with ease as well as learn more about my brokerage, Prime Pacific Properties. As a real estate broker and Realtor for over 30 years I have a wealth or knowledge to share with my clients.

My wife Cheryl and I have been residents of San Diego for over 40 years.  I obtained my original real estate license in 1987.   In 1989 I became a licensed broker.  In over 30 years or representing clients, I have successfully closed hundreds of residential and commercial transactions in California valued in the tens of millions of dollars.   With great experience throughout San Diego County as well as intimate local area knowledge, I works extensively to help buyers and sellers meet their real estate goals.    Good service is not difficult, it's common sense.    I have been honored to have assisted hundreds of clients over the years and now helping their grown children!    

I love the work I do and take great pride in it.   There are always challenges in every situation, that's what keeps the work interesting.    The knowledge I have acquired through experience is a critical asset that drives success.   Markets change as do conditions that impact those markets.  It's imperative you work with an seasoned real estate professional to provide accurate "real time" intelligence combined with years of negotiation skills.   I do not make decisions for my clients.  My focus is to make sure they have all the knowledge they need to make the right decision for themselves.

More than 90% of my business is through referral.  My philosophy is that if you take care of your clients’ needs, success will follow. 

If you are considering a San Diego real estate acquisition or sale,  or simply would like more information, please feel free to call or e-mail me anytime.    All consultations are without obligation and are completely confidential.
