There are many rewarding careers, but it might be hard to top the feeling a real estate agent gets when connecting people with their new home. Plus, your workplace doesn’t have to be an office — it can be someone’s new home. And while a future in real estate and real estate appraisal can be challenging, it can also be lucrative — and we can help you get started.
If you plan on entering this worthwhile profession, start with our Real Estate and Real Estate Appraisal program. You’ll get an in-depth look at real estate principles, practices, appraisals, and sales so you’ll be ready to hit the housing market. Upon successful program completion, you will be prepared to take the next steps to become a real estate agent or a certified or licensed residential appraiser.
