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.

What Others Are Saying

When I decided to get my Broker license to sell Real Estate I looked at eleven different schools in the area. I chose the Chicago Real Estate School because I was brand new to this and needed help. After meeting with Kim Bates I knew this was the career for me. My teacher Sam Zakarian was awesome and last month I finally got to quit a job I didn’t like to work full time in Real Estate. Thanks for everything Kim and Sam!
