Terry Bell answered:
Check with your local community college. I was able to take classes there, including some online, and happy to take some classes with other students, as the interaction with teacher and students was helpful. Your real education will be with your mentor when you start working with a broker, and that will be where your decision is more important. ... more

It's good to compare Brokerages, but also compare the Broker of Record in the actual office. So much depends upon the attitude of the "person in command" of the Realtors. There are so many management styles out there. ... more

Congrats on your decision. Just because you take a class at a brokerage does not mean you are required to join it. I took my real estate course with a brokerage that i never joined. if you know you need to take an person course because you like interaction. visit a couple different brokerages that offer it to se what fits your needs.

Best of luck

Each brokerage has their own strengths, but what a new agent needs more than anything is a good mentor. Seek out a mentor before you choose a place to hang your license, then consider going with the brokerage where your mentor works. As I've said often on Trulia: brokerages don't train agents - people do. You may find that your best mentor works for Acme Real Estate & Storm Door Company. ... more

I have something better. An actual letter from one of our most prolific foreclosure attorneys in the Louisville/Cincinnati area who I recently dealt with on a client's foreclosure and loan modification request. The letter from LS&R Attorneys specifically states that the foreclosure action will not stop until a loan modification, if any, has been granted from the lender. Send me your email address & I will send it to you as a .pdf attachment. As an aside, the client received the foreclosure civil summons action from the courthouse during the time frame they were seeking a loan modification. The lender eventually agreed to a fantastic modification for my client and the foreclosure action was dismissed this week. It can work out.
