Our family has been specializing in real estate licensing since the 1940s…and believe very strongly that we have the most effective program in the industry, by far! I’ve been answering incoming calls and chats for years and I can’t tell you how many people have shared their nightmare stories of their experiences going through other programs. That is why it is so critically important for you to know the differences between schools, because they are not all the same!

Common misconception… “I need to know all of this information I’m being tested on, so I know exactly what I am doing once I get my license and start work for a company” Fact…a small percentage covered on the state exam is actually applied when working in the field, great information to know, however once you get hired, its going to be mostly Sales Training that prepares you for the career.


Your goal should be to get the license as easy and as quickly as possible. So looking at the first phase of the process which is completing the 3 qualification courses (DRE approved and equivalent to the required 135 hrs), I have heard of schools that seem to make it more difficult than necessary to get through these homestudy courses, by requiring assignments to be turned in, platforms that are not user friendly and higher grade percentages to pass. We on the other hand make it as simple as possible by recommending to our students to simply read a textbook and get the minimal required passing grade of 60%. The results show most of our students getting through this phase with ease.


Some seem to believe that completing this first phase of the process by taking “live classes” would be the most effective, when in fact it is not, as it would be much more time consuming (135 hours in class) and extremely costly! and very few schools even have them available.

NO WAITING, with our program you can GET STARTED TODAY and could have a license in hands in less than just a few short months.


Most do not realize that the preparing for the actual state exam is the most important part of the process and that is where our program really comes into play. Our head instructor has been teaching longer than anyone else in the field and that makes a tremendous difference between the quality of our program and all the other schools. I will remind you that our entire License Exam Preparation Program is included for FREE when you order with us and includes more study materials and tools than other programs. The biggest failure of other schools is not having focused subject matter to study for the state exam and with us that comes in the form of our 6+ hour Video (Crash Review) and follow along Exam Review Guide.

Your success is important and you will want to be able to make the right decision. If you don’t see a clear difference with us compared to other schools, we strongly suggest you call us FIRST!

We can go over all the aspects of getting the license and any concerns you may have and provide you a down to earth conversation without any pressure so you can get your questions answered. You can call our Head Instructor, Don Schwartz directly at 510-921-8524 or you can call me at 800-878-1929. We are available at almost anytime day or evenings, weekends. If we do not answer on first try, always leave a message.

State’s Top Instructor

State’s Top Real Estate Instructor|
50 Years Experience

Don Schwartz is the 3rd generation in his family to teach and is considered by many to be the “Michael Jordan” of License Preparation. Don, at age 16, began by teaching the program at his father’s real estate school. His devotion, assisting students, and staying current with exam content, has made him the leading expert in this field.

Traditionally classes were taught once a week over a 12 week period, taking up to 3 months to complete.  Don knew preparing for any exam required short term retention (cramming).  So, in 1976, he was the first create the concept of a Weekend Crash Course.  It quickly became so popular he expanded to offer it in 8 major cities around the state. He needed others to also teach, but soon discovered what he taught was so specialized even the top brokers weren’t capable of doing it.  So when possible, he taught them all himself.  As he had always wanted to provide all his students the best and most effective program, when the technology became available, he put his full lecture on VIDEO and made himself available nearly 24/7 for consultation.

Drive & Prep


Failure of the State Exam is simply due to lack of study time. People normally busy with after-work duties and time spent with family have found themselves suddenly forced to use that necessary and valuable time to now study. Drive and Prep allows time normally wasted while driving to now be used to properly prepare for the exam… while preserving that normal lifestyle. Consists of nearly 14 hours of jammed packed audio information.

The only program that allows you to
