Are you considering taking real estate classes online to be licensed to sell real estate in Illinois, and wondering whether you’d have to attend some classes in-person? Well, there is one thing you’ll have to do in person, which we’ll get to in a minute, but let’s talk about the classes first.

The State of Illinois does allow you to complete all coursework online. The Chicago Real Estate School offers the course in two different formats, which are both currently being presented online.

Our online self-study course consists of reading text, watching video presentations, and taking quizzes, followed by 15 hours of review via Webinars with a live instructor. The Webinars happen over a two-week period.

Our online option course is 35 hours of online or in-person classroom sessions and webinars, where a live instructor leads you through the material. You’ll still need to put in time studying, of course, but you’ll get more direction and accountability from the instructor. The Webinars are completed in under four weeks. 

The courses cover the same material, so once you’ve completed either course, you’re prepared to take the Illinois Real Estate Exam. This is the part which does have to be done in-person. There are locations in downtown Chicago and throughout the state.

If COVID-19 is keeping you from “life as usual”, this may be a great time to do an online real estate course, and create the kind of financial future you’ve been dreaming of.  Feel free to contact us by email, text, or LiveChat at the bottom of the page – we’re here to help!
