About the Classes
Two consecutive 5-week sessions, in real estate principles and real estate law, are accredited for six semester credits by the Nevada Division of Real Estate.
Our programs are designed to qualify the student to apply for a salesman's real estate license and to prepare the student for a successful career in real estate.

A message from Michelle regarding COVID-19
As you know, we are in uncharted territory. We are monitoring the CDC, World Health Organization and local Health Department news regarding the virus. Currently, all classes will continue to take place as scheduled. Our next classroom session is scheduled to start April 6, 2020, however at least the first four weeks will be done on a web based platform. This will still include instruction by me, and I will be available to answer all your questions. We recommend that you visit this site in the days leading up to the April 6 class for updates. We will also be emailing all currently enrolled students with instructions on accessing the lectures on Friday, April 3. Also, we have received new guidance from the Nevada Real Estate Division regarding Post Licensing Classes and how we might conduct those in an online classroom setting. It is my intention to still have our Post Licensing class which is scheduled for April 23-25, but handled online.
We recommend all students, and their family members, remain conscientious in maintaining their own health and that of their families. Please consider the health of others when attending classes, especially if you have exhibited any symptoms of the virus or been in contact with anyone who has tested positive or been exposed. Students should make the best decisions based on their own assessment of classroom attendance when considering all verifiable information available.

We are taking this time during the next few weeks to develop a contingency plan. This includes creating online classes and setting up a system for video conferencing for classes. Dianne will be retrieving messages and answering emails remotely. We are closing the office to the public through April 30. She will be available by phone and email from 1:00-5:00, Monday - Thursday. Ideally, we will be mailing all course materials to anyone who signs up online. We are deep cleaning the school, including student desks, during this break. Upon commencement of classes, all desks and general areas will be thoroughly sanitized between the morning and evening classes.
On a personal note, your health and safety is our upmost concern. We are truly a small, family-owned local business. While I own the school and teach all of the classes, Dianne is my mom and helps me with running the operation. At 70 years old, with my step-dad being 79, they both fall into the category of "at risk". We want you to stay healthy, but we want to remain healthy as well! I believe the small businesses may suffer the most from this evolving crisis. If you have a small business yourself, I wish you the best of luck in this trying time. If you don't have a small business, I ask that you consider supporting local small businesses during this time. Many businesses are offering options so you may continue to patronize them without direct contact with staff or other customers. I have faith in our community that we can not only survive, but thrive during this event.
Thank you for your understanding. We will continue to work together to ensure our classrooms remain a healthy and positive learning environment for students.
