CA Department Of Real Estate "Approved" CoursesCourses that are offered strictly for preparing students to take their license examinations are not required to be approved by the California Department of Real Estate (DRE). However, the DRE must approve courses that qualify individuals to take the California Real Estate "Sales Agent" and "Broker" License Examinations which are described by the DRE as "Statutory Courses." We currently have nine "statutory courses" approved (Appraisal, Economics, Escrow, Finance, Legal Aspects (Law), Mortgage Loan Brokering, Practice, Principles and Property Management). The DRE issues approval numbers for each course. To see a list of our courses with photos, full descriptions including the approval numbers you can click on this link Course Descriptions.

Specializing Only In Real Estate LicensingWe are one of the first schools, If not the very first Real Estate School to be approved by the Department of Real Estate, which occurred in 1941. Starting as the San Francisco School of Real Estate and continuing on to produce 3 generations of family instructors ending with our very own Owner and Head Instructor Don Schwartz. While our main competition offers programs in up to 50 states and programs for other fields, like Appraisal, Contractor and Insurance licenses, we have been completely focused on helping people pass their Real Estate Exam and ONLY in California!. The benefit to our students is that since our attention isnít divided into other areas we can provide a program far superior to any of the others.
For 70 years the school has specialized exclusively in preparing students to pass the CALIFORNIA REAL ESTATE SALESPERSON AND BROKER LICENSE EXAM.
The State's Top Instructor - Over 35 Years ExperienceOur Head Instructor Don Schwartz has probably been teaching longer than any other instructor in the entire field. Donís career started when just after graduating from high school he began teaching for his fatherís real estate school. He taught there for a few years until 1962 when he enlisted in the Army. Immediately after being released from the service at age 22, he obtained his real estate salesperson license and become active in the real estate field. 1n 1975 he began teaching again and eventually took over the family business. Over the years, as Don expanded the locations it became necessary to hire additional instructors. Don has interviewed hundreds of instructors and trained many to teach our programs. Due to the fact that license exam preparation is such a specialized area of training, he found that even the best real estate instructors werenít qualified to teach it effectively. Over the years Don has only found a few instructors that he felt were able to complete the task. Since those particular instructors left or retired and the due to the change in technology, Don decided to put his presentation on DVD/Video. Considering the fact that he had taught it longer than anyone else and kept up with writing and updating material, he would be the one to provide all his students the very best presentation.
We invite those looking at competitive programs to investigate who actually writes and instructs their programs. Is their background exclusive to the presenting information from the State Exam? How long have they been teaching? Do they keep abreast and write or update materials? We think find that youíll be surprised at the results and decide to entrust us and our Head Instructorís expertise to give you what you need to be successful in passing your State Exam.
Our Head Instructor is the leading expert on the California Real Estate License Exam and has been teaching longer than most in the field. Head Instructor's Bio
Less Study "Results In Half The Time"In doing research you may find that most other schools offer statutory courses needed to qualify for the State Exam. What most students donít realize is that these courses only serve a prerequisite and arenít meant to actually prepare students for the actual State Exam. That's why youíll find that all schools offer some type of a License Preparation Program. Most just consisting of practice exams, a math handbook maybe some flash cards ect. But nothing in the form of subject matter focused to the State Exam, which leaves the student spending countless hours searching through the qualification course textbooks to find information they may need.
Our Exam Review Guide was developed by our Head Instructor, who for years debriefed students and researched all the real estate exam related material available in the field. Through a long a tedious process he extracted all the vocabulary and subject matter that he felt would be pertinent to the State Exam. This enables our students to study exactly what is needed and eliminate wasted time studying unnecessary information. No other school has something like this!
Rather than reading through the 1350+ pages of Qualification Course material,
Our Head Instructor has extracted all the pertinent information and put it into
an easy to read 178 page "Exam Review Guide" outline.
Access PowerPrep Online! PC, Mac and TabletsThe Free Access To Our Online Program gives another very important aspect to our study process, as it adds another format along with our DVD's, audio's and hard copy materials so that our students have convenient access to our program at all times. For example: Instead of lugging around books…Our students can simply access the entire program and all the materials utilizing their laptop in hotel, coffee shop etc. This is extremely important as the #1 reason why students fail the State Exam is lack of study time! We wanted to make sure our students had access to our materials at all times to complete their studies, eliminating all the road blocks that may inhibit our studentís success. Many schools advertise their program as "online" however youíll find that in most situations it only applies and gives limits to components such as qualification courses, taking finals and few have practice testing. We are one of the few companies to make available our entire program online, utilizing the newest technology at its best!
The most complete program of its kind! While competitive programs are very limited…Our program integrates the use of 7 1/2 hrs of classroom video, exam subject matter, interactive testing with 2000 Q&As.
24/7 LIVE Chat SupportOur Student "One On One" Support…Is unmatched by other schools, as our Head Instructor makes himself personally available to answer students questions as they go through our the program. Most other schools either have only customer service reps and/or many at best have school counselors to answer questions in regards to studentís studies. The problem is they canít possibly have the expertise necessary to aide or help answer their studentís questions accurately as the information presented on the State Exam is extremely extensive. Only state exam specialists such as those who write materials or instructors have the capability to effectively answer questions about subject matter, vocabulary and the clarification of questions presented on practice test material. Our Head Instructor Don Schwartz is known to be at the top of his field as the leading expert on the State Exam and has performed all the activities mentioned above for more than 35 years. This assures our students have the one person best suited to answer their questions in regards to State Exam related materials. All students are provided with direct access to our Head Instructor by personal phone number and e-mail address.
Also available is our Head Instructor "AS YOUR OWN PERSONAL TUTOR" on an ongoing basis
to answer questions during the entire study process.
Highest Pass RateKeep in mind the failure rate on the State Exam for all applicants statewide is consistently around 50%. Think about it, no matter how good a program is, not every student is going to properly study or be ready for their exam. Getting a totally accurate figure for a pass rate is actually close to impossible due to the fact that some students never actually take their state exam, and others have moved or left no way for us to contact them. However, since instituting our money back guarantee, we can track refund requests, and can compare the refunds requested to the courses sold. Based on this, we can state that over the past three years refunds have averaged between 1% to 2%, which would indicate our pass rate to between 98% to 99%.
We can state that over the past three years refunds have averaged between only 1% to 2%,
