Are you considering taking real estate classes online, 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 flex option course is 35 hours of 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. If you take the flex option course, you’ll also have the option of switching to classroom courses once we’re able to offer them again, at no extra charge.

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. Click on the link at the end of this video to find out about both the online self-study course and the flex option course, so you can figure out which one is right for you.
