80 Year Old Trains Online to Begin New Real Estate Career


Have you ever heard people say they were too far along in years to start a new career? Have you also heard that computers are hard to learn if you haven’t grown up with them?

Here is a story that blows those stereotypes out of the water. Earlier this year, 80 year young Fletcher Woodruff also known as Woody of Midway City, decided to start a new career in real estate. Woody loves people. He loves to manage his own time and he loves to be physically and mentally active, “What better career than a Real Estate agent?”, said Woody.

And since much of the research that agents do is on computers, Woody realized she “needed to learn a bit more about computers”. What better way, thought Woody, than to do his real estate agent licensing training on the internet? Woody found a company in Irvine, CA called Approved Real Estate Academy. “I have no background in computers”, said Woody, “and really didn’t know much more than how to turn the computer on. But it didn’t matter; the staff at walked me through everything I needed to know to complete my training. And I never had to leave my house. If I needed help, I would just call them. They became my friends and supporters. In fact, when I passed my state licensing exam, they called me and asked if I would like to be an Keller Williams Realty Agent.”

Woody is now a licensed real estate agent at Keller Williams Realty in Irvine, CA. At last check, he was on his way to a closing – impressive for the 81 year old rookie! More and more seniors are getting into second careers to earn a little extra money or just to stay active. recognized this and has courses specifically designed for those wishing to serve the senior market. They have also redesigned their website so that even a customer with no computer experience can easily complete their online real estate training.

For those who think they are too old to start something new, don’t admit that in front of Woody or you will hear his story, loud and proud.
