Why Choose The CE Shop for Washington, D.C. Real Estate?

Why Choose The CE Shop for D.C. Metro Area Real Estate Education?

Whether you’re looking for D.C., Virginia, or Maryland, Pre-Licensing, Exam Prep, Post-Licensing, or Continuing Education, we have you covered. Great real estate agents never stop learning, and we’re devoted to innovating and evolving as you do. With courses written by industry experts and easily accessible from anywhere through our innovative online platform, you can rest assured that the things you learn will help you pass your exams and actually be useful on the job.

  1. Pass Rate Transparency

    We're among the highest in the nation!

    When it comes to choosing a real estate school, you must look at their pass rates. They determine how many of their students who sit for the exam actually pass. So, if pass rates are so important, why would other real estate schools not display their results on their website? We publish our pass rates, showing you the value you’re getting by choosing the industry leaders in real estate education.

    Other real estate schools? They don’t want you to know for a reason.

  2. Cutting-Edge Career Resources

    We provide all the inside tips and advice you need to succeed.

    Our Agent Essentials resource pages provide critical information proven to help you get your license and become a successful real estate agent. Other schools have few career resources (out-of-date blogs and boring video guides), but they don't have anything else catered to your needs as an agent. Our experts spend countless hours researching trending topics, tips, and advice proven to help grow your business. We believe in our students’ long-term career, not the quick money grab.

    Our customer support is available 7 days a week, 7 AM - 9 PM CT on weekdays and 9 AM - 6 PM CT on weekends via phone, email, or online chat. The other guys don’t invest nearly as many hours or as much manpower into helping their customer.

  4. Always Online, Unlike the Other Guys (or Gals)

    We've been online since the beginning.

    Since our inception as a company, we’ve strived to be the leading-technology education for your success. Being 100% online for all this time has given us the opportunity to perfect the most efficient learning platform for getting agents licensed. Meanwhile, other real estate schools started as a brick-and-mortar school and only just recently joined the 21st century by offering online courses.

    Classroom learning costs you more than just time. Instead of wasting hours driving to class, money on gas, and a strict schedule that requires you to miss other important activities, like work and family events, you could just take your courses online and learn on your own time. Earning your license should be an efficient process that gets you in and on your way; not some annoying nuisance that potentially hinders your career schedule.

  5. 5-Day Free Trials

    Our 5-day free trial gives you ample time to know if this decision is right
    for you.

    This should say everything when it comes to us versus other real estate schools. A good majority of prospective agents need time to consider a career change. We would never want our students to invest their precious resources if they aren't sure. That's why we offer a 5-day free trial, giving you the time you need to see if a career in real estate is the right choice for you. With other real estate schools? It’s do or die.

  8. Multistate Licensing

    We have customizable packages for multistate licensing in D.C., Maryland, and Virginia. Give us a call!

    With so many homes within five miles of three different states and districts (Maryland, Virginia, D.C.), real estate agents in the D.C. Metro-area need multistate licensing in order to be competitive. Other real estate schools are only in one or two parts of the D.C. Metro Area, which limits you from growing your business. Meanwhile, we’re in every neighboring state and district and have customer service representatives ready on standby to help build your own customizable, cost-efficient multistate licensing package.

    Multistate licensing can be confusing and difficult. We aim to make it simple so you can get on your way without overspending or wasting time.
