Congratulations! You're taking the first of many steps in starting your real estate business. "How do I begin?" is the first question we hear from those considering this career path. Real estate combines the draw of a business ownership and entreprenuership with low start up costs and potential of high return.

How much education is involved?
72 hours of class work is all that is required to test for your real estate license- this includes 48 hours of Pre-Licensing Class and 24 hours of Missouri Real Estate Practice Class (MOREP). After you pass your national and state tests, you may place your license with a real estate company and begin practicing real estate! 

Are night classes or online classes available? 
Yes, we offer options for daytime, nighttime and online courses. We've designed a flexible schedule to meet you in your lifestyle.
