After you're licensed, learning the business will depend on your personality and which brokerage if the best fit for you. Some people need constant motivation and sales meetings, others learn better with books, some will get the most out of joining a small team and jumping right in.

It does not really matter who's real estate school you attend. My only advice would be to not sign a contract with the broker until you have interviewed with at least 3 or 4 firms.
In my opinion as a new Agent you would benefit from the continued training at a larger brand name company ( Keller Williams Realty Las Vegas; Coldwell Banker; Century 21; or Remax) I would suggest setting up an appointment with a recruiter from each company while you are still in school.
Once you pass your test then go to the company that you felt had the most to offer.
You will want to ask questions about continued training (is it free or do you need to pay for it?). How much are monthly fees and what do they include? How does the commission split work (what is the %? how much do you contribute between each % level? Does the commission reset to the lower percentage? If yes when/how often?)
I you would like to consider my company or have additional questions you need answers to please don't hesitate to contact me.

Get the license yourself. Then find what works best for you. Many agents say when first starting find a brokerage that takes more of your money per transaction BUT gives you the training and support you need at first. That way you end up ahead in the long run. You can always trade brokerages later on if you wish. The training you get will stay with you always.
You can learn more from our website, http://www.moving-careers.com, and I also invite you to contact me for further assistance. I am a regional recruiter for our company and I would be happy to be a resource for you as you go through the process and consider changing careers.
