Starting May 1, 2011, the state of Illinois will issue a “Broker” license for entry-level real estate agents. New Broker licensees are allowed to help others buy, sell, manage and lease all types of real estate. In order to obtain the “Broker” license, applicants must complete a 15-hour “interactive class.” Real Estate Institute will begin offering this live class in May!
“It’s really exciting to be a pioneer in the creation and development of classes that go beyond key terms and textbook material,” said Sue Miranda, instructor at the Real Estate Institute. “The Applied Real Estate Principles 15-credit-hour interactive class delivers as the title promises. Students will learn to apply the basic textbook knowledge they receive in the program.”
Real Estate Institute’s interactive classes cover a variety of scenarios that will prepare students to pass the state exam and give them a better understanding of the real estate brokerage business. Sue further explains, “Our students will learn about real-life situations encountered by real estate licensees. Students will receive a hands-on, step-by-step approach that will walk them through a real estate transaction from the beginning to a successful closing. “
In order to take the interactive class, students must complete a 75-credit-hour course: “Broker Pre-License Topics.” Students can enroll now to begin this self-study course. Real Estate Institute offers a discount package combining the 15-hour interactive class and 75-hour self-study class to satisfy the entire pre-license education requirement.
