Mr. Caviness has worked in many capacities as a licensed professional including residential and commercial real estate sales, property management, real estate investment, credit repair, and building maintenance and supervision.
In 2002, Gregory entered the mortgage industry, arranging residential mortgage loans for borrowers in Queens, Brooklyn, and Nassau County. Drawing on his education in finance, he was elevated to Senior Loan Officer and trainer for a Queens-based residential mortgage broker.
Soon after, real estate schools approached him to teach loan-officer training courses to NY State licensed brokers as part of their continuing education requirement. Prompted by his success as a mortgage educator, Mr. Caviness became certified as a State-approved real estate instructor.
Since 2004, Mr. Caviness has taught Real Estate Salesperson and broker licensee candidates. To this he adds mortgage loan processing, foreclosure remediation, property management, credit repair, investment analysis, FHA 203K financing, short sale processing, mortgage acceleration procedures, and a host of other real estate and mortgage-related courses to his training repertoire.
Gregory’s approach to teaching is interactive. With each lesson, he shares his experiences in real estate, and provides real-world examples of how each subject relates to practical experience.
Gregory has been regularly featured as a radio guest on a weekly radio broadcast (WVIP, New Rochelle) explaining mortgage and credit issues and answering call-in questions from the audience. In addition, he has authored a continuing education textbook about foreclosure sales.
Gregory has also received appointment as Associate Professor at Adelphi University and the College of Mount St. Vincent — specializing in teaching real estate and mortgage origination courses.
