Asked by Online Me, Fremont, CA Thu May 31, 2012

Can somebody recommend me any good school for in class training for a real estate broker?

Also if you know of any good online school do mention that as well.

Thanks in advance to Trulia and all the experts :)

Might I also recommend Laura King as an Allied contact on the inside. She mentored me through my brokers test. She's a pro and has an answer for every question I ever asked her. If she could of held my hand telephonically she would have.

She takes a very personal interest in the folks that seek her advice. Some of the text and questions about Manufactured Homes that were in the Allied curriculum were either dated, inaccurate or just plain incorrect.

When I brought this to Laura's attention she went to management and had all my concerns addressed and corrected or deleted. Her attention to detail and her patience really put me in a comfort zone and no doubt helped me pass my brokers test.

She really cares about her students and will give you all the time and attention you need to put you in a comfort zone. When I took my test she called me a couple of weeks later to see how I did. Hands on like that nowadays is pretty hard to find.

Online Me,

It depends how you learn best. If you can learn online; as John Arendsen mentioned Allied has been mentioned numerous times with positive feedback. If you learn better in a classroom, finding a local school from the DRE website's approved school list then researching the 2 or 3 that you're interested in may be the best way to go. Here is the CA DRE (Department of Real Estate) link:

I'm sure there are classes starting every week somewhere in the Bay Area in person if that is your preferred style. If not, Allied and other schools offer correspondence/distance courses.

Either way is fine as long as you're really learning something about the RE industry. What I don't subscribe to are crash courses that only address preparing you to pass the test but don't really give you any substance.

That stated I was very successful with Allied Schools online course and the personalized coaching and support I received from their very knowledgeable, experienced and accessible staff. If I ever had any questions or concerns or issues with questions on their test questions they were always on it.

I passed both my agent and brokers test with Allied on the first try which they guarantee you will do if you follow their format and do what you are supposed to do. They have excellent text reference and you really learn a lot about the nuts and bolts of the industry. They really prepare you to hit the ground running.

when I became a realtor I used anthony schools. it was on line and came with books and everything I needed. I passed the test on the first try and have heard of some having to take it 3 or 4 times, so I guess it was a good course.....Dawn
