My instructor was awesome. I don't know about other instructors, but mine was great. I had zero real problems. To do well at Georgia MLS Training Institute, you just have to participate and take good notes.

I chose to take it online, and it was really easy. The main format was videos and slideshows, but no instructors. I liked that because I could do it 24 hours a day. Make sure to pay attention and read all the documents they give you - they will really help you with the test!

What I like about the online class is, I get to work and still study at the same time. I can get through with the training materials a lot faster than going to class. I think it is pretty informative. If you can study by yourself and are comfortable driving the pace, you should take an online class. At the moment there is nothing I dislike. After I take the exam I will know how effective they are.

I love everything about the class! I mean the teacher, Mr. Gatti was awesome. He was knowledgeable, he walked us through his history of real estate. He brought a lot of wisdom that I wouldn't be able to learn online. I went to a class three days a week. It was quick but it was relatable and very friendly. It was a big class, but he had a way of making it feel like a small class. On the downsides, I had to travel 30-40 minutes, it was far from home. One other thing to consider is that people who are considering to be in real estate as a profession, they have to understand all the costs it takes to be a licensed agent. How much it will cost you to be part of organizations, etc. There is a lot of startup costs and out of pocket costs, which was NOT taught in school.

Don’t not use this place. They rush you thru the course! Teaching you partial information that doesn’t apply the exam you must pass to get your license. Do your research and insure you pick the right place. There just in it for the money they could careless about you.

They let you pay them your money first, ...

They let you pay them your money first, then you see at the bottom of your receipt it is non refundable. They should tell you that before you register so you can make an infoemed decision about investing in their training. ALSO, they don't tell you until you first class, that if you have unresolved student loan debt, that by law, you won't be able to get your real estate license until it is resolved. This also is something they should tell prospective students before letting them pay for training. They lock you in financially before telling you this vital info. I didn't return to this rip off money hungry institution. I have paid these people my money hoping for a better financial future through their training. The won't give my money back to me. I'm a single mom that needs my money back. I only went to one orientation class, which is where the instructor told us we can't get out license. I was already working on my student loans before registering here. But I would finish this training before my loan situation is resolve. I paid these evil, heartless people for nothing in return. They have no conscience obviously. The only care about the money...not the students. God sees all...believe that🙏

What a joke. I understood going in that real estate tests were hard, that's why I chose this school. However, after taking the Online and Cram course, I realize they were only after my money. Neither course prepared me for the final exam, which had questions that barely appeared in the material and were not reflective of the practice exams used to prepare me. All we did for 2 days at the cram course was take practice exams and review them. They did not use their own outline nor provide key info like formulas. I would recommend you go elsewhere for your training.

About

Thinking about becoming a real estate agent or appraiser in Georgia? Choosing a good school is critical for your success in the final state exam.  Georgia MLS Training Institute stands out because of its numerous courses and 50-year pedigree (the school began operating in 1970!). It’s affiliated with the Georgia MLS, the largest multiple-listing-service in the Southeast part of the country. Instructors are drawn from a pool of experienced professionals with direct experience in appraisal or real estate.

Georgia MLS Training Institute is based in Morrow, Georgia. The Georgia Real Estate Commission has approved the school to offer courses such as the salesperson pre-licensing, broker pre-licensing, continuing education, and appraisal programs.

Georgia MLS Training Institute ticks all the boxes when it comes to real estate education. They have experienced instructors, various sales associate & broker courses, and much more. Many former students liked the training they received!

 

Course delivery methods


pexels-pixabay-247839Classroom: Proponents of this mode of learning like that it offers maximum interactivity between the student and instructor. It’s more structured with attendance for all classes mandatory.  In-person classes are taught at the school’s locations, which include MSAR Metro South, NAMAR Northeast, Alt Metro, and Tucker (that serves as the corporate headquarters and testing center).  The classroom courses offer better interactivity and a chance to engage with the instructor on a one-to-one basis. Instructors are also sure to include real-life examples when teaching. Students meet new people and establish lasting relationships.
Normal day classes start from 9:00 a.m. and end at 5:00 p.m. If you’re engaged in full-time work, there are evening classes twice per week: Mondays & Wednesdays or Tuesdays & Thursday.

Online: You can go for an online course if you don’t have time to attend the in-person classes scheduled during the day or the evenings. The course is self-paced, but not as interactive as an in-person class. As far as the online class goes, you should expect a text-based course. There is a book that comes with the online course to supplement. Short practice tests are included at the end of sections to help you review the material.

 

Quick Facts


  • Online courses are provided through various online vendors, including Dearborn, Hondros Learning, and On Course Learning.
  • Students must complete in-person classes within one year from the purchase date.
  • The online course expires after 180 days.
  • The school provides two final exams instead of giving students one extended test. A passing score on both tests is necessary to qualify to take the state exam.

 

Courses at Georgia MLS Training Institute


Pre-License Salesperson courses

The pre-licensing course is split into two parts: Real Estate Fundamentals and Real Estate Practice. That’s the reason you get two exams. Taking the course in parts may prove convenient for many students.
In the sales associates course, students learn a lot about financial aspects, math problems, real estate principles, and legal issues.

Post-License Salesperson courses

Before renewing your license for the first time, you require post-license education with at least 25 credit hours. The post-license course at Georgia MLS Training covers contract forms, pricing, working with both sellers and buyers, etc.

stockvault-online-education-online-degree-light-background258751Continuing education

Completing CE programs helps you earn credit hours for license renewal. An example of a CE course is the GAR purchase and agreement course. It teaches you how to identify new sections of the form and explain them to clients. Other CE courses include listing specialist, BBRETA, and more.

CRAMCourse

Passing the real estate exam on the first try is easy after adequately preparing. The Georgia MLS Training Institute offers a CRAM Course open to students from other schools as well. It’s aimed at developing your test-taking skills and refreshing your content knowledge. If you’re taking the in-person course, the CRAM course includes 8 lectures covering the 8 topics. The instructor will review one topic at a time. In the end, you sit for a topical test followed by an evaluation. Georgia MLS Training advises students to take the CRAM course and wait at least one week before sitting for the school proctored exam.

Broker Courses

If you’re a broker taking the 60-hour broker pre-licensing course, you’ll get one special advantage. Membership fees to the Georgia MLS will be deducted by up to $245, meaning that you don’t have to pay the full cost of membership that’s $500 for a new brokerage company.

Appraiser courses

Appraisers work side by side with real estate agents and perform a critical role in determining the value of a home. The school offers various appraisal courses online through their vendors like Hondros Learning.

 

Pros about the school


  • Many students say the training is comprehensive. The teachers are experienced; in fact, one instructor has 30 years of experience practicing real estate in Georgia.
  • With flexible class hours, you can choose the schedule that works for you.
  • Courses are well-priced and affordable.

 

Cons about the school


The main low note revolves around switching from the online course to the in-class course. Fees are not transferable from one course format to another (likely because they use third-party vendors). Schools with in-house courses usually only require students to top-up the difference.

FAQs

The in-person class goes for about $450, but its split into two easy payments of $225. You also get textbooks and other materials. We recommend checking their website for up-to-date pricing and offers.

Pass rates for individual schools are hard to find. However, the general pass rates for students sitting for the pre-licensing exam in Georgia ranges from 40 to 60%. 

The online course is self-paced. You only need to spend 75-hours on the course. Some students go through the online course in as little as one week. 

The normal day classes will only take you two weeks, and the evening classes last for eight weeks.
