Chicago Real Estate School
Chicago Real Estate School's instructors are all working real-estate agents with long track records of success. Founder Kim Bates designed the curriculum of the school to help agents pick up business savvy along with their license and incorporate hands-on sales and leasing training. From self study to online courses, the school accommodates all types of learners. Even after they've completed their prelicensing requirements, students aren't thrown onto the job market alone: staff keep up the support with career guidance, job placement, and an all-day review that prepares students for the Illinois state exam or just lets them soak up more juicy tidbits on seller disclosures.
