FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do you offer the course live or via Online Webinar?
We don’t have traditional online classes where you work individually. We only offered in person classes before the pandemic because we believe it’s the best way to learn. Our experience is that students who are in the classroom and engaged tend to do better on exams. The pandemic forced us to be creative and offer a hybrid model. Most students still attend in person, but if it’s not possible due to distance or scheduling conflicts, they can attend online using Zoom. It’s live and interactive, allowing students to ask questions and have discussions with those in the classroom. The hybrid model allows students attend remotely while others are present in the room.
What is the maximum number of students per class?
Prior to the pandemic, we could host up to 25 or 30 students at once but we had to reduce that significantly. We still carefully manage the number of students we allow in the classroom. Although we no longer requirer masks, we still encourage social distancing and provide hand sanitizer and desk wipes. We remind students to practice good hygiene by washing their hands regularly. Our priority is the safety of all students. The classroom has 14 tables, each of which can easily accommodate two students, but we typically have only one per table. We look forward to relaxing our restrictions in the future, but we remain cautious.
What happens if I have questions, during or after the course?
We encourage you to ask questions during class as it helps facilitate your learning. Our focus as instructors is to promote interactivity and involve you in the learning process, rather than just lecturing and dictating content. With smaller class sizes, you may feel more comfortable asking questions, which is why we prioritize creating an intimate learning environment. We also make ourselves available as resources to you before and after class, which sets us apart from other schools.
Do I have to complete quizzes / tests to pass the course?
To pass the course, you are only required to have 100% attendance, as the state does not mandate the completion of quizzes or tests. However, we do administer quizzes and practice exams to assess your retention and identify areas where you may need additional support. So, expect to have quizzes and tests throughout the course.
Do I get a certificate or transcript when I finish the course?
You receive a certificate of completion when you finish our course. You must present the Principles of Real Estate certificate when you take the license exam to prove your eligibility.
Are there other courses or books you recommend, to help me pass the test?
We discuss other helpful texts and books to aid you, but we introduce them during the practice course. Our focus is on the test prep material, so we avoid overwhelming you. Just follow what we provide, concentrate on the vocabulary and concepts, and you can pass the test. Some students have downloaded various material, which has only led to confusion and frustration, so we advise you not to do this. We offer everything you need.
Can I sit in on a live class, to see what it's like?
Absolutely! You are welcome to sit in on a class at any time. Also, after you successfully complete our course, you can audit classes at any time, as long as there is availability.
Where are your locations?
Our location in Olathe is easy to find, located near Santa Fe and Mur-Len streets. The main campus is where we hold night classes, while day classes are held at our Shawnee Mission location, which is about 10 miles away. Our training facilities are equipped with touch screen monitors and Zoom Room audio/video technology to provide a comfortable and functional learning environment for those in the classroom or attending virtually.
What if I have to miss a class?
Our attendance policy allows excused absences if we receive advanced written notice. If you provide a legitimate reason for an absence, we’ll work with you to schedule makeup time that’s convenient for both of us. The instructor must supervise all makeup time, so it’s not a matter of making it up on your own. If the absence was due to an emergency, we understand and won’t penalize you. However, it may be difficult to schedule makeup time immediately but, you can attend the same class with the next cohort group, which starts each month. We’ll do our best to accommodate each individual situation.
Do you offer tutoring?
We’re putting together a test prep class specifically for those who lack confidence or have failed a portion of the test. Since we don’t have a set schedule for those sessions, we currently offer one-on-one tutoring instead. Using the information provided by Pearson VUE, we can target the topic areas where you were weak and cover that material again.
We care about your success and want to help you pass the exam. We’re not just concerned about the number of students we have, but about helping YOU to successfully pass the exam. If you don’t pass, we can’t stay in business, so our success is tied to yours. We want you to know that we’re here to help you succeed.
Does your school offer CE?
At the moment, we don’t offer continuing education. Initially, our business plan was to expand and offer broker-level training and continuing ed by our third year. However, the pandemic disrupted those plans. We’re still planning to offer it, but we want to provide unique courses that benefit agents. We’re looking for niches in the market where there’s interest and value for agents.
What makes your school different?
What sets us apart from other schools you may be considering is our student-focused approach. We understand that adults have different learning styles, and we work to personalize the learning process as much as possible by keeping classes small. We offer personalized attention and focus on your success. Our commitment to our students isn’t just a marketing concept, it’s part of our mission. We aim to help you achieve your goals, and that’s our top priority. We don’t mean to degrade any other school or opportunity, but we believe our personalization and commitment to our students are what make us unique.
