Repetitive

It was pretty straight forward, if not repetitive. More variety would have been nice. I will be taking the real estate exam soon.

I cannot tell you how much I loved the teacher, Rico - he really cares about the students and does such a good job of conveying the information in an engaging way. Although you definitely have to put in the work to succeed, they do everything they can to help you do so.

convenient

Worst part: I felt I was mislead because Keller Williams was right next door to the school and they made me believe that I was going to get a job with them and I was only being prepared hands on. Best part: it was convenient, had a flexible schedule, great teachers, and a friendly atmosphere. California Realty had a good learning environment. The classes were excellent with videos, graphics, pictures and hands on training. It's a good school with fast material that allows you time for work and leisure, but still a very professional school and staff. Planning to take the real estate exam in 4 months and so far feeling good.

I know a lot of people take online real estate education classes, but they are missing out on the great teachers at CA Realty Training. My teacher was very patient. Her classes were packed with information, energy, and stories about what it is like to work in the real estate business. Great school!

Because now we're an online course, it has become a little bit chaotic. It used to be kind of structured and step by step. It's now online and I don't know what to do next. In-class it was good, but now I need to process what the next step will be. With Covid-19 it's an online based-school, but I prefer to finish my course in-class. I do think I will pass all the quizzes and by the end of the course will pass the test.

Victor Hugo does a Fantastic job of telling the student the realities of a career in real estate. He brings a passion and understanding to his lectures that encourages you to want to be the best Realtor you can be. To serve your clients to their satisfaction, and conduct yourself to the highest level; is what he tries to instill in you. He shares his own pitfalls that he has experienced as well as the rewards of helping people in the process. It is by hearing and watching him that I feel not only inspired, but motivated to complete this course.

I passed my California Real Estate exam ...

I passed my California Real Estate exam this week, first try, and in fact I finished 48 minutes early. I watched the entire video crash course twice. Ian was a terrific instructor. I did several practice tests, studied the definitions for those areas where I was weak, and also attended the live two day crash course taught by Diane Brito the weekend before I took the test. When I took the State exam I was surprised at how easy the questions were. However I credit that to the tutorial help from your website and your live crash course. And of course a LOT of hours of study. However your course made those hours of study well spent. As a retired senior information technology executive, I commend you on your website and the ease of navigation. There are definitely a few bugs which are a bit annoying, however overall it is quite excellent. Again, thank you for making it possible for me to "fly through" my exam. Robert Moon Palm Springs, CA

About

CA Realty Training is an online real estate school that offers real estate education primarily in California. The main differentiator?  Students get to attend in-person classes taught by experienced agents. These lessons supplement the main material.  It’s the school’s special advantage. 

Robert Rico, a successful real estate agent, started the company along with his wife, Carolee.  Rico’s background in both education and real estate made starting this school a no-brainer. The first class comprised of 7 students. And seven years later, the school boasts of over 25 locations. 

What has driven that rapid expansion?  “Special blend.” Earlier on, Robert & the team realized that most online schools offered a textbook education. Students were only prepared to pass exams.

CA Realty Training devised a hybrid program. Students complete the required coursework online or via textbooks. Then, they attend in-person classes (supplementary lessons) taught by experienced real estate agents. 

In the live lessons, agents teach out of their experiences, share personal philosophies, and show students how the material applies in real-life situations.

If you’re in California and need a solid real estate education, you can choose CA Realty Training. The institution ticks all the boxes: courses are comprehensive; the platform is modern & easy to use; they offer good exam prep tools. What’s more, CA Realty Training gives students a real look into real estate by having supplementary courses.

 

Quick facts and History about CA Realty Training


  • The school has partnered with many Keller Williams (KW) offices.  Many locations are at KW offices. Each KW office is individually owned & operated, as part of a franchise system.  
  • CA Realty offers a hybrid learning method, with online lessons and in-person supplementary classes. 
  • The school endeavors to prepare students to pass the exam on their first try. Also, they aim to provide information that’s useful beyond preparing learners for state tests. 
  • Top KW agents, selected individually based on their expertise in specific areas,  teach the supplementary lessons. Supplementary sessions are usually 2-3 times per week.

 

CA Realty Training Courses


pexels-thisisengineering-38623651) Pre-license Training: Currently, the school provides the real estate pre-license program in California only. Based on the regulations set by the California Department of Real Estate, you have to complete two mandatory courses (Real Estate Principles & Real Estate Practice). Additionally, you take on an elective course,  which is usually Real Estate Finance. 

2) Exam Prep & Crash Course: Before you sit for the state exams, CA Realty will ensure you’re adequately prepared. There is a 2-day weekend crash course.   Their online exam prep tool is especially useful. It simulates the real test experience allowing students to practice with over 1000 questions. There are category practice tests and over  3,000 flashcards. 

3) Broker’s License: The school has a Broker’s pre-licensing package. Sales associates need at least two years of experience before attempting the broker’s exam. 

4) Continuing Education (CE): Sales associates going through the first renewal are offered a 45-hour package. CA Realty says you can finish the course as quickly as six days.

FAQs

The cost varies with the package. At the basic tier, you get the individual pre-licensing courses at less than $100. The most expensive package ($300+) comes with extras such as ebooks, the exam prep solution, two mandatory courses & the elective course. Full online training videos and hardcopy textbooks are sold separately. 

Currently, they offer pre-licensing in California. With time, the school might add more locations. So check their site for more information. 

The time you spend on the course daily and your speed will determine how fast you can complete it. CA Realty Training says you can finish in just 18 days. But it might also take you several months if you don’t have time to study full time.
