Hello Stephanie, the best school is a matter of opinion, the NYS Salespersons class is 75 hours.

I am not going to disagree with Mitchell but I will say the choice between online and going to classes depends on the type of learner you are and your personal situation. I retain things well and do better at my own pace. Also, I was finishing up my last few months in the Army in another state and wanted to hit the ground running as soon as I got back to NY so the online course worked very well for me (retired on Feb 29th and had my license on March 15th). If you do take the online version, don't waste your money on the book. I never opened mine and couldn't find it now if I wanted to.

Dear Stephanie:

Your best bet would be to go the school that is closed to your home and with the easiest commute. You are also better off taking the actual classes as opposed to doing the course online. Online the course becomes extremely boring and makes it difficult to get enthused when you have to repeatedly click for 75 hours.

Also, more importantly than the school, make sure you have the right broker sponsor you. make sure the broker that sponsors you is in the area where you want to work and does the type of real estate you want to do (i.e. residential, commercial or rental). Also make sure you will get the proper training, tools and support to insure your best chance at being successful.

If I can be of further assistance, please contact me direct, I would be more than happy to help you.
