Student Help Is Our Top Priority
Student help is our top priority. That is why we do our best to provide our students with the tools they need to succeed in getting their real estate license. Not only do we make sure our students have the latest and most up-to-date information courses, we also arm you with the knowledge and information you need at your fingertips.
Whether you are getting your real estate license for the first time or renewing your license, Rowlett Real Estate School makes sure you have everything you need to complete your pre and post-licensing education. When you decide to get your initial real estate license, we will send you some extra study material at no charge that will help you pass your final course exam. We also carry all the post-licensing courses and continuing education to meet all your renewal requirements.
Course credits are always reported promptly to the DBPR. We even go so far as to send you a screenshot of our electronic reporting so you will know your credits were reported. We encourage our students to take their post licensing course as soon as they can after getting their license. It is very risky to wait until the last minute to complete your post licensing course. If it is not completed by the deadline, you will lose your real estate license for good.
This and other information is very important for you to know. We are always happy to answer any questions you may have, so don’t hesitate to contact us. We are always happy to help you. If you have a suggestion for our helpful links page that will help students, let us know and we will add it.
