What are the best real estate schools in the Los Angeles area? And Should I link with a real estate company, like Century before signing up for school

Hi Rosanne,

You can contact a broker before or after you sign up for a school but I think most people do it after they get their license officially. Be sure to contact multiple companies so you can see where you would fit in well and see where you think would provide the best training.

I think all the real estate schools are pretty similar in my opinion, most people suggest Allied but there are some other similar ones like RealEstateExpress.com. Just make sure whichever school you choose is DRE approved. You can call the DRE and ask if you aren't sure.

Best,

Most people use allied online school...

Also, you are better off talking to as many people as possible and to as many companies as possible... the more information you have the better you can make an informed decision.

Talk to franchise brokers, like c-21, prudential or keller williams, but don't forget to tak to smaller shops as they offer quite a different experience.. that way you can compare.


Good luck!

On your other question regarding linking with a RE broker while studying I think that's a great idea. C-21 is at the top of the pile but there are a lot more hens in the hen house. The ball's in your court. Choose carefully and wisely.

Allied all day long! They're the best! I'd call the Irvine office and ask for Laura King. She's the best mentor you could ever wish for. She helped me through my salesperson's test and 4 years later was still there to tutor me through my brokers exam.

I just called to ask her a couple of questions the other day and even though I'm no longer a student she still took time out of her busy day to give me sound advice and leadership. Now that's what a real school of instruction is all about.

I used Allied Real Estate School (online), but I was already working for a Realty Company many years.

You are probably better off connecting with a company as soon as possible. While there are a good many franchise companies with connections, reletivley few of them can provide Broker direct assistance in the crucial first year of licensure.. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
