  • Low barrier to entry

One reason many get into real estate is for the opportunity to help someone find and buy their dream home. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing the joy on a person’s face after a closing. But, there is a lot involved – a successful real estate agent must be dedicated to their clients, flexible, confident, and knowledgeable.

If you get your Colorado real estate license, you’ll find yourself wearing a lot of hats in your new role. Buying or selling home can be an emotional experience for many. Often real estate transactions are prompted by major life changes, such as job transfers, a marriage, or a divorce. In addition to your role as a search engine for your clients, you may find yourself serving as their counselor, financial advisor, and even a life coach.

This career field is definitely for you if you don’t want to be tied down to a desk 9 to 5. It’s entrepreneurial in nature and you must be available to clients during the day as well as during the evening and on weekends to accommodate your clients’ schedule. You control your own book of business, and can decide how much or little you work. You can also set your own hours and work part-time or full-time. With a nice balance between working with people face-to-face out in the community and managing transactions, this job is dynamic and will never leave you bored.

Many factors can determine the income of an agent. The first is home price. The higher the sale, the higher the commission. If you focus on luxury properties and sell a lot of homes, you can potentially make a very high income. Most realtors make a comfortable living earning around $50,000.00 a year. The nice thing about this career is you can make as much or as little as you want based on the amount of time you put in, your commissions, and the number of transactions you complete.

When you’re starting a new career, education is the first step and choosing the right provider is key. Here are a few things to look for:

Age of Content & Platform

Content is the key to our success. The real estate market is constantly changing and, if you're not learning based on recent market trends, you'll be outdated before you even get started.

Age of Content & Platform

We offer brand new content and frequent updates to our courses on a brand new online learning solution. We want you to learn, grow, and succeed through the most revolutionary ideas and approaches in education.

Money Back Guarantee

You shouldn’t have to pay for something that isn’t right for you. A lot of providers don’t have your best interest in mind and don’t offer a guarantee on their products once a course is started.

Money Back Guarantee

We think this one is a no-brainer. We value your time, money, and effort and we prove it through our money back guarantee policy.

Refund Policy

Not able to finish your course? Change your mind? Some providers don’t provide a refund for any reason.

One of the greatest advantages of taking your course online is that you can do it whenever it’s convenient for you. Have time first thing in the morning? That’s great. Awake at 2 am? Hop online and start learning!

Online vs. Classroom

If not done well, taking an online course can feel like reading a flat and unengaging textbook online. Classrooms can be inconvenient and only offer one-size-fits-all learning.

Online vs. Classroom

Our online learning solution, LEAP, is innovative, new, and delivers content in an engaging and interactive way, helping to better prepare you for your new career.
