Gila Community College Offering Real Estate Classes


If you are a property owner you may be interested in three classes offered this spring for real estate license renewal, including basic exchange, advanced exchange and beneficiary deeds. There is a small fee for each class, but you don’t have to be a Realtor to attend.

Are you planning to sell your property in today’s market? If so, then learning about exchanging a property for another, instead of selling and taking the profits immediately, may benefit you and is something taught in the courses.

Instructor Tony Alfano has many interests. He hikes, skis, teaches yoga to help relax, and also teaches real estate license renewal classes at Gila Community College.

A licensed real estate broker from New York, Alfano has been involved in the construction and real estate business for more than 40 years.

As senior vice president and founder of EL Car Financial, Alfano has built office, health care and college facilities in New York City.

In Phoenix, Alfano consulted with Realtors, businesses and home owners and assisted them with exchanging properties and real estate tax issues.

The course beneficiary deeds, speaks to a little known Arizona law that may eliminate your home from probate. With this deed, you have the opportunity to keep your home in your name while alive, and deed it to your heirs upon your death.

Alfano will also answer questions about exchanging properties for new properties or leaving them to a beneficiary.

To register for a course, contact GCC at (928) 468-8039, visit the campus at 201 N. Mud Springs Road or visit for more information.
