The Chicago Real Estate School was established in 2008 with a fresh new approach to real estate education. If you are interested in obtaining your Illinois Realtor license, we promise a great experience throughout. In addition to fully preparing you for the state exam the Chicago Real Estate School is very focused on providing training and job placement. It is not uncommon for our new licensees to have contracts pending within the first two weeks of graduating our program. Anyone currently enrolled can reach out to meet one on one with a member of our staff prior to getting licensed for assistance with the interviewing process, choosing the right company, and some simple startup ideas for putting deals together quickly. Our classes are taught by experienced instructors who possess a very high energy level and love to teach. We have three convenient locations in the Chicago area consisting of 542 W. Roosevelt Rd. in the South Loop, 2447 N. Ashland Ave. in the Lakeview neighborhood, and 7300 N. Western Ave. in the Rogers Park neighborhood. We also offer an excellent Online Broker Course curriculum ideal for those not in the Chicagoland area. Our newly added Online Webinar Classes allow you to complete the entire Real Estate Course from the comfort of your home. The Chicago Real Estate School guarantees immediate employment upon passing the state exam after your course completion. The Chicago Real Estate School is fully licensed through IDFPR (Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation) and an accredited member of the Better Business Bureau.
