This was a great school - the teacher was informative and super approachable. They really cared about making sure you understood the material. I have no doubt that I'll be using Gold Coast in the future too.

Online school

The price is good, and it's close to where I live. I know a lot of people that have gone there. I signed up but didn't actually end up going to the physical school. Do your research and find the school that is right for you, and that makes sense for how you learn.

Nice teacher

I like the teacher. He provided the materials in a way that made it pretty easy. The classes are really helpful, the teachers go through the materials at a good pace, and if you have any questions, they will help you. They give you a lot of study material and you can access a lot of material online. The cost of the school isn't expensive, and they help you a lot. The teacher was very nice, and overall I had a really nice experience. Passed the state test on the first try.

My teacher was amazing. He made sure to cover all of the material and give us a thorough review of all the information. The school itself was nice, with all the amenities you need to succeed in a learning environment.

I think it's very thorough and informative. I like it, I think it's very easy the first time I took it in class. This second time, I'm taking it online. It's very easy and the online version is user friendly. Not sure when I will take the exam because of the pandemic...

The classes were a bit pricey for me

I went into the physical class. The teacher was good. It was a bit long, but you know, that's just the state requirement. It was a little bit pricey, but other than that it was fine. I think I paid about five hundred bucks. A little hefty, but other than that it was fine. Passed the test on the first try.

well-priced

Haven't started yet, but very excited! Planning to attend the one in Doral. My dad is a real estate agent so I really have the passion for it. Prices seemed very reasonable considering it's way cheaper than regular college.

Self-paced and clear

I took online, so I never had to attend an in-person class. It was very self-paced, everything was clear and self-explanatory, and I had a great experience taking it online. To succeed, you have to be very committed to taking the online course. Commitment and dedication is my number one recommendation for any students thinking about this school.

Good professors

I liked the flexibility in the hours and the options that they offered. The professor was very knowledgeable, and it was pretty good actually. The professor provided a lot of assistance and was very friendly. Customer service at the school was pretty good.

Great experience

I'm also a full time student, so I really liked the flexibility. I'm working on my license on my own time and at my own pace, and so far it's been a great experience. I would say that you need to be disciplined with it, and make sure you do not just put it off. If you want to get your license, you have to actually work on it and take notes, that way you can review them before the final test.

Most people passed

They really teach you! In fact, everything is very intense. For the most part, most of the class passed the exam. Everything he says is right to the point. The parking was good. This school was worth the money. I actually paid tons of money before doing an online school from home, and it's just not the same.

I love the teacher, she's great. If you go for the week course, just be prepared to have a fast track course. If you're not used to doing things fast or learning fast, this is not the course for you. They have all the information on their website and you can always ask your instructor questions when you get home and you need answers. It's a really good class and I enjoy it.

I took the online course and passed my test on the first try. One thing i will tell you is that the online course will take you more than 63 hours to do if you take your time to learn it. This school has all the tools to do it. This is how i passed my test. I took the online course then i took the cram with Rick Suarez. Then i did all the practice tests and practice exam. Then i took my test and i did it in 1.5 hours. My advice is do the practice test, take the cram and when you get to the exam take your time and breath. You will do fine.

I wanted to thank the team of the school of construction (Sanjeev, Gil, Wallace and the rest of the instructors) for their kindness and professionalism. I passed the 3 exams with above passing score by taking every single class online (I never missed one class). All the instructors remarks and advice about test questions are very accurate and I recommend learning (by heart) all the questions of the cram tests offered by the school. Passing the exams is not a walk in the park, but it becomes a more comfortable walk if you seriously study your books and manuals (average of 2 to 3 hours a day)!!!!

Eddy is a great instructor, lot of information covered in two days, although he made it fun. So nice to know we were taught by someone who not only knew the Law, but had experience. It was great, I would recommend the class to family and friends.

We had a very good professor. Made the class very interactive and his real life examples were key because he used those to illustrate the concepts being covered in the book. Carlos was outstanding.

FAQs

For your pre-licensing course, you can complete the 63-hour course in as little as 7-days. In this accelerated program, you attend classes from 9: 00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m, Monday to Sunday. Evening classes run for 5 weeks, with classes scheduled on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. 

It depends on whether you choose an online course or a classroom course. You pay about $300 to $550 for real estate training. But it’s best to check with the website as the pricing may change

Florida does not publish the pass rates for schools. You can only hear about the school’s pass rates from the institution itself. Some schools will ask former students to complete surveys, but we were unable to find third party information.  Gold Coast Real Estate School revealed that their students managed a pass rate of 70 to 90% for their in-house exams, administered at the end of the course.
