In-Classroom Illinois Real Estate Exam Preparation
($559-$599 – Payment Plans Available)

To qualify to take the State Exam, you must complete the 90-hour Pre-license Broker* Course. If you’d like to take our Classroom Course, you’re in the right place! (For our Online Course, click here.)

This course features 35 hours of classroom time – the balance is done as self-study. In order to register for the course, you’ll need to decide…

Whether you want to pay for registration up front, or use our Payment Plan.

Whether you want our Accelerated or 5-week course.

Which of our three Packages you prefer – Bronze, Silver, or Platinum.

Then, determine which date / time / location fits your schedule best. By using the “Search” box below, you can display only the classes you’re interested in – for instance, to see our classes at Bridgeport, begin typing “Bridgeport” into the Search Box below, and you’ll see that only those classes displayed. You can do the same with any other field, such as “morning”, “accelerated”, etc. You can see details on our four locations here. Once you’ve determined which class you want to take, click the Register button, and you’ll be able to specify the Package and Payment Method you prefer. Upon completion of your registration, you’ll receive three emails: (1) your receipt of purchase, (2) your login information for the online resources, and (3) a welcome email from our Director, with directions on what time to show up for your first class, and what to bring. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us via LiveChat (at the bottom of this page), or by calling us at 773-647-1830.

* If you want to represent Buyers and Sellers of Residential or Commercial real estate, the first license you’ll get is called a Broker’s License – in other words, what most people call a “real estate agent” or “real estate salesperson” is technically a “real estate broker”. The state changed terminology in 2011, and what used to be called a “Broker” is now called a “Managing Broker”.
