I knew absolutely nothing about real estate coming into this course other than an interest and I left feeling so much more knowledgeable. Kristen Baycorn’s classes are for sure the best! She makes learning light hearted and easy to understand. Some things can be a bit overwhelming but she breaks it down simply. The school itself offers great resources and are there for you. I passed both my state & school exams first try! I will actually miss going to classes. They’re the best!

Kristen is a great and great lady, she is very professional and kind. As you known, i am a Chinese guy, there are so many other classes outside the city, some very cheaper, but i chose her class,you would learn a lot of very interesting stuff from her classes and her little hand books. I read 2 times and write down the answer from her book, i pass the school test in 1-1/2 month, most of the answers are from her class, take good notes, and for the state test, about 60% from this book or more, i am so impressed by her effort to write this book.her main points just like the music spreading in your head, and telling you that is the right answer on the test!!! I still remember the questions from the State test seen from her pass book.. it is like sunlight from the God... haha.. work hard and have fun. In less than 2 months, you will pass the RE State test...
Once again: go to her class take all her notes, read her little green pass book. At least 2times, you will did a very good jobs!(I read every single words of the red test book and the Glossary it also helps and I learn a lot from it)
