Real Estate License Journal #1

So, I decided to go to school to get my real estate license. Why? I guess because in my head I'm thinking, "What have I got to lose?" Real estate is something that I'm passionate about, but one thing I'm learning is that passion can fade if left unattended. Passion, like a campfire, must be constantly fed or fueled in order to keep it alive. So I wanted to seek out a way to fuel my passion for real estate in a constructive way, which made getting my real estate license a no brainer. But you have to go to real estate school first and take courses before you can take the state license exam.

First of all, I work a full time job, and I have a stay at home wife and one year old. I'm thinking, do I have time to go to school, while competing for time with family and work? And I said to myself single moms do stuff like this all the time. S/O to the single moms, I salute you! If you really want something bad enough, you'll find a way. So guess what, I had to start believing in myself, that I could do this, and balance my life. I immediately started looking online for schools. I looked locally first, to see what was available near me. There were a couple schools that really peaked my interest, but they were expensive.

So I saw this banner ad for Real Estate Express, and honestly I think I clicked on it by mistake because I thought it was spam. You know how when you try to close out a pop up ad and then you accidentally click on it? Never mind, so anyway, I was on the site and I saw that you could take the required real estate prep course online for $99. Once I saw that I closed the window because I new it was a scam then, because there's no way you can get a legit real estate course for that cheap! I knew because I had been searching and everything else was way more expensive. So anyway while I was still in the process of looking I ran into a friend/coworker at a birthday party. I was talking to him about me going for my real estate license and he told me that he was currently in school for the same thing. Guess what school??? Yep! You guessed it Real Estate Express!

I was floored, and obviously I had many questions, but surprisingly he had an answer for every one of them. While I was still coming to grip with the fact that it's legit, my friend challenged me. He told me to sign up ASAP and get going. That sounded like a good idea at the time, but I'm married though, so I had to talk it over with my counselor A.K.A. my wife. We talked and she was all for it, yay! Love wins lol! So I signed up and I personally love it and highly recommend it.

Let me tell you why. First of all it's extremely affordable. It's literally the best $99 I've ever spent in life! So do this! I mean come on, you can't beat it. Also, the course is so flexible because it's online, which is an awesome benefit. I can log in at anytime on my phone, tablet, or laptop, and complete my coursework. Gotta love it! Why? Well, because I'm always on the go and I don't want to slack off, so this works perfect for me. So yeah, this is what I'm doing now, and I'm about 70% done with the course and loving it.

Hasta pronto pennitos!
