Just as the local real estate market seems finally to be edging toward an upswing, John AViteritti, the real estate professor who has taught virtually every agent on the East End at one time or another over nearly a decade, now finds himself without a classroom at the campus that has been his base of operations for the past nine years.The veteran Long Island University teacher recently found out that three of his primary classes had to be cancelled because his employer no longer has a lease at the Stony Brook Southampton campus.Instead of renewing the lease with Stony Brook University, which ran out in July, administrators at LIU signed a new lease with Suffolk County Community College in RiverheadAt the same time, LIU pulled the program for licensing, remedial and broker’s courses that MrViteritti, a Southold resident, has taught for the past nine years.“It’s a great loss to me personally,” he said during an interview last month in the empty classroom where he used to teach at Stony Brook Southampton“Over the past nine years I’ve formed relationships with my students, and one of the most motivating factors to me is when people take the initial licensing course, then they come back for the broker’s course, and then return for the continuing education course.”Although university officials said that MrViteritti will continue to teach a full course load, there is no room in the curriculum for Long Island University to teach basic real estate licensing courses at Suffolk Community College because the school already offers those classes, and LIU—as a lessee on the campus—is not permitted to offer coursework that conflicts with Suffolk’s existing schedule.According to LIU Associate Dean Jean Conroy, university officials decided to move the lease to the Suffolk Community College campus in Riverhead to make the university more accessible to a larger percentage of would-be real estate agents and agents who need to take continuing education courses.“The Riverhead campus is more centrally located for students that live on the North Fork and the South Fork, and west,” MsConroy said recently“So this is actually a more convenient site for students to take classes.”The last Long Island University real estate licensing class was completed at the Stony Brook Southampton campus in JulyFrom now on, the university will be offering only continuing education classes in real estate at the Suffolk County Community College campus in Riverhead.MsConroy noted that MrViteritti’s talents would still be utilized in Riverhead, even if he can’t teach the licensing, remedial and broker’s courses.“John is well respected, and we’re lucky to have him,” MsConroy said“He has his own website, and people in the real estate field seek him out for guidance ..Prior students, real estate salespeople and brokers all e-mail him for advice, and he’s teaching a full schedule of courses for us this fall.”MrViteritti said the new arrangement with Suffolk Community College leaves students from farther out on the East End without accessible classroom instruction in basic real estate licensing, leaving online courses as their only optionHe added that unless Stony Brook Southampton administrators decide to offer those real estate classes, there would be a real absence of classroom education and experience in real estate on the East End.“I am very sad about this,” he said, “I have critiqued the 75 hours online licensing course for New York University ..And it is no substitute for the classroom experience.”MrViteritti said he has sent letters to Stony Brook officials asking them to create classes for real estate licensing, remedial and broker’s courses at the college.In response, DrMary Pearl, who recently stepped in as dean and administrative vice president at Stony Brook Southampton, said that university officials are currently looking at a variety of options to fill classroom spaces and are swamped with course study choicesShe noted that among those possibilities is a new marine science laboratory, 
but could not say specifically if real estate courses would eventually 
be a part of the new curriculum at the Southampton campus.“I would definitely be open to meeting MrViteritti and I’m sure that he had popular classes,” Dr.
Pearl said during a telephone interview last month“But I have to go through a formal, strategic planning process and consult people as we try to decide what the best use of
our campus is to serve the community.”MrViteritti is a former director of operations with the New York State Mortgage Loan and Code Enforcement administrationAfter retiring from that position in 1995, he decided to get his real estate broker’s license and establish his own brokerage firm. 1  |  2  >>   You have read 1 of 7 free articles this month.
