If you live in  California we have live group study classes. This is a great way to learn in a group coaching environment. As you will be with a small group you will be held accountable. This class will offer live coaching for three college-level courses, Real Estate Practice, Real Estate Principles and Real Estate Finance. The classes are held from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm on Thursday via Zoom.

This course includes 10 weeks of live group study classes. At the end of 9 weeks, we help you with all the California Department of Real Estate paperwork. Also included are the California State practice quizzes so you can review the materials just prior to taking the state exam.

        All other real estate licensing companies do ONE thing; help you get a real estate license. However, having a real estate license doesn’t make you money. Approved Real Estate Academy’s advanced FastTrack program teaches you how to get your license AND how to make money with your license.

        Not Just a Real Estate Course, An Entire Career Plan From Training, to Passing Your Exam.

        Approved Real Estate Academy’s program offers a very unique educational program that is the best of all worlds. As Approved Real Estate Academy works with the best real estate companies so our look to education is different than most real estates schools.

        It’s easy to become a California Sales Agent.

        Just follow the following steps.

        We have found over the years is to break our education down to three parts.

        Students acquire a comprehensive understanding of real estate investment, development, and management, with an emphasis on the necessity of smart, sustainable development.

        Students are trained both in theory and application as they are guided by a faculty composed of practitioners drawn from the region’s leading investment, development, law, architectural, engineering, and planning firms. A supportive network of alumni and business professionals is available to students throughout their course of study.

        The Approved Real Estate Academy Mentor program is designed to offer agents brand new to the industry a hands-on learning experience that will jump-start them into success. The quote is “We don’t know what we don’t know, and we don’t know that we don’t know it.” A large part of the Approved Real Estate Academy culture is to help each other grow and to support each other’s progress.

        photo-jobs-teamThe mentor program is designed to give some of our more experienced agents an opportunity to share all that they have learned, and for the newer agents to feel like they have someone who’s right by their side supporting them. If you are looking to get into the real estate industry we will set up appointments to meet with industry leaders. This will allow you to ask all the questions that you want.

        There is no cost to have a mentor at Approved Real Estate Academy, and we reward our mentors for being a part of the program.

        Who benefits from mentoring? Everyone! In fact, current research in mentoring literature indicates that all parties gain from mentoring relationships – mentors, mentees, and organizations. It’s no wonder that many successful real estate firms have realized the benefits of establishing a mentoring program. And, in turn, many successful agents have realized the benefits of working with a mentor.

        Overview and Course Selection

        An applicant for the real estate salesperson examination must show proof of three courses prior to the state exam.  Real Estate Principles, Real Estate Practice, and Real Estate Finance.  The complete pre-license package represents our most successful method for passing the state exam.

        Preparing to Pass the State Salesperson Examination

        Textbook based courses with the benefit of “Live Personal Instructor” support. This combination of distance education with instructor support has proven to be a superior method of preparing to pass the state salesperson examination.  Courses include on-line homework assignments and on-line final examinations.  Our Pre-License Package also includes practice tests for the state exam, full online review crash course with the benefit of “Live Personal Instructor” support.

        The California Department of Real Estate has approved the course material for Approved Real Estate Academy.   The sponsor ID from the Department of Real Estate is S0587.

        Salesperson Pre-License Package

        We offer online courses or textbook-based courses with the benefit of online chapter quizzes, online final examinations, and Personal Instructor Support.

        With our experience in real estate education, we understand that interaction between instructor and learner is one of the most important features of an effective learning program. With this in mind, all of the Approved Real Estate Academy pre-license students are assigned a “personal instructor” to answer course-related questions.

        We have learned that our students are more satisfied with their learning experience and ultimately more successful on the state licensing examination if they are in frequent contact with their personal instructor.
