It was an excellent preparation for the exam itself, which I passed this week! I also took the weekend Crash Course, ably taught by Ian Medina, two days before the exam. Hats off to CA Realty Training for a wonderful package of information...highly "Rico"mmended!Read More

The crash course […]I used CA Realty for both my courses at Keller Williams Westlake Village and the Crash Course. The crash course at Santa Monica was the best thing I could have done before taking the test. Ian Medina made so much sense in all of that big thing called Real Estate. He explained all the concepts with life examples that made those tricky questions not so tricky and scary anymore. After understanding the concepts, and not just memoried the answer to each practice question I was ready!! No matter how they worded the question I knew how to "clean" it and see it for what it was and answer it easily. Ian Medina is a great teacher. Make sure to schedule your test in the same week you take the crash course, so the material will be fresh in your brain. Goodluck all!Read More

I believe you are given adequate material to pass without needing additional material and Mr. Medina makes the crash course online very interesting with his stories that the material will stick. Make sure to fully understand concepts and terms to help pass the exam. The proctors at the La Palma facility are not as mean as they made them sound like and are actually very nice and provide a peaceful atmosphere. I took the exam today and passed! I did review the questions for a second time to make sure I was happy with answers and was glad I did on a few. So thank you team for providing well structured material that is easy to follow and understand.Read More

Everything about this experience was informative, productive and fun. Frederick Howard was our instructor, and he never let the class drag; he always kept it interesting and moved at the perfect pace, leaving plenty of time for questions but moving fast enough that the classes weren't too long. He is a good teacher and a very warm and engaging guy. The class is given at the Keller Williams office in Inglewood, and the teachers are all Keller agents. Not only do you get the education to pass the exam, but also a lot of practical information and the benefit of their experience. In addition to being excellent instructors, I would recommend the agents at Keller for all of your real estate needs, particularly at this location. The in-class experience is a bit more expensive, but you get the benefit of interaction and real-world knowledge that you simply wouldn't get in an online setting. The curriculum is good all-around, but the extra personal touch you get with face-to-face instruction is key to understanding the business itself and launching a career in real estate. The three electives given are enough to apply for the state exam. The classroom gives a solid foundation, and the books build on the in-class lectures. There is a portal to lots of useful information and tests on your book knowledge as you go. Once you pass everything, you have the three certificates needed to take the California licensing exam, and there is detailed information on the portal on how to apply for the exam. There is also review information and practice exams. I'm going to start the application process today, as well as the review. California Realty Training has given me the confidence to take the exam and has greatly increased the chance to pass it on the first try. Just like most things in life, the class is only as good as the quality time and effort that you put into it. If you're serious about getting started in real estate and are willing to put in the time outside of class to supplement the excellent in-class lessons, I guarantee you will be well prepared for both the exam and to start your new life as an agent.Read More

My confidence is the field grew because of her. As far as CA Realty Training; the school is effective providing their students with a wealth of information and they really do want their students to succeed. The online sources are very user friendly. I am profoundly grateful that I found this class. Thank you!!!Read More

Ian Medina was an energetic and knowledgeable instructor who was able to quickly lay out all of the key information that would be included on the exam. The class ran from 8:00AM to 5:00PM with two 15-minute breaks and an hour lunch period. I was able to pass my exam in large part due to the information I learned in this course. I would highly recommend to anyone who is looking to prepare both quickly and thoroughly.Read More

Gracefully my teacher Ellen made me feel so much at ease with her techniques of teaching, which, is the right formula that works for me. I recently completed my 3 month courses. She's an amazing lady and an awesome teacher. Coming in early for my classes gave me time to communicate and get to know Ellen so much more. She gave me so much advice, and encouragement to continue on as a future Realtor. To "never stop growing and learning" and more, these words are just a small fraction of my appreciation to her. I'm looking forward to spending more time with her in the near future and sharing our clients' adventurous stories. Thank you Ellen.Read More

I searched around Los Angeles for the best real estate classes I could find and feel so very lucky that I found CA Realty Training and Kathryn Shafer. Kathryn is an accomplished master of real estate and teaches her class in a personable, fun and engaging style. She is a serious teacher of the craft and utilizes not only her vast personal experience but also invites experts in the fields of Escrow, Lending and Insurance to speak about all the different aspects of real estate you will encounter in the field. This class not only prepares you for the state exam but more importantly, it teaches you what the actual business of real estate will entail in real world situations. Kathryn Shafer is a teacher with one goal, to effectively prepare you to confidently practice real estate successfully and with a professional level of competence. I went into my first class tentatively unsure about this seemingly confusing profession; I graduated Kathryn's class with the sure knowledge that I not only understand real estate now, but will thrive in it. I simply cannot recommend these classes enough.Read More

I found CA Realty Training online and signed up, as the classes were at Keller Williams (well-respected, to say the least) just minutes from my apt. Rico filled in for the first "audit" class and gave an overview of the instructors, their styles and personalities. Kathryn Shafer sounded right up my alley: down to earth, lots of great experiences to share, and guest speakers to learn from and bring the material to life. And, she taught on Saturday, which was a must with my full-time job. The material is dry - lots of rote memorization and facts, however, Kathryn's Saturday classes were invigorating. What a great body of experience she has to call on - and man does she tell a good story! Her real life examples are not only a hoot, but they bring to life the material in ways that make it easy to remember. Kathryn's guest speakers (at least one per class) are also a nice touch, breaking up the 3-4 hour class, and allowing us all to ask experts to clear up any confusions we might have on the reading/slides. Also, each expert also makes themselves available beyond the class, which is a HUGE advantage. Beyond class, Kathryn is as generous with her own time as she is with her stories, making herself available to students at any time over coffee or a drink to talk further. I also really like her ethical standards - Kathryn not only relays the ethics the book talks about, but consistently reminds us not to do things we aren't comfortable, if it feels icky it probably is, and to never risk a friendship or your own morals for a buck. Kathryn took me from someone who was curious to learn more, to someone who is now excited to start his career in real estate. I feel empowered and supported in that decision, fully knowing Kathryn is always just a phone call or a margarita away.Read More

Renee Despins teaches from the heart and has wealth of knowledge to share. CA Realty Training does offer just an online course but having an experienced realtor with great personal real estate stories has made all the difference. Renee is animated and energetic and breathes life into the otherwise routine material. This is a great class with a lot of information and Renee makes it fun and something you look forward to going to.Read More

She doesn't just review the material but spends time in every class talking about real experiences she has had in the real estate world. She also brings in speakers from escrow, title, and mortgage companies so you get a complete education of everything you will encounter once you are licensed. I thoroughly enjoyed the classes and felt I learned WAY more than what was written in the course material. Kathryn is extremely kind and always available to answer your questions or provide guidance when necessary. She's truly a wealth of information and good person to have in your corner. Since completing my courses, I have taken my state exam, and passed! Would highly recommend these classes.Read More

The Brentwood classes with Mahogany Rhodes were lively, informative and enjoyable. She has a great style of teaching sprinkled with humor that is effective and memorable. Big props to her for not letting the classes get hi-jacked and side-tracked by "those students" who either don't read the material or just assume the class is their personal seminar! She keeps it on track and moving. "Higher Concept" she would say....not nit picking apart details that aren't relevant! In conjunction with lMahogany's classes, The Ca Realty Training web content courses and study aids are right on track with what you need to know to pass the State exam. After reading the mandatory books, I found the Online quizzes, test prep tests, flash cards and trial final exam to be very helpful and consistent with the actual content on the State Exam. I also took a two day crash course as well, which is recommended and thanks to Ca Realty Training and Mahogany Rhodes I got my License!Read More

Kathryn brings an unbeatable combination: a seasoned real estate agent/agency owner, plus incredible passion for her subject and students. Kathryn's class is all about the practical aspects; how agents spend days, how it all works and what they need to know to excel at their job. She peppers her own spirited lectures with guest speakers like mortgage brokers, mortgage bankers, escrow officers, title insurance people, former students now agents, etc. This is most helpful, as they really illuminate the process from prospecting and how to work with buyers and sellers, making offers and accepted offers through close of escrow. Finally Kathryn clearly cares a lot about her students and their future, stressing how to deal with critical aspects of the process that can make or break an agent, at the beginning and end of every class. If you have an opportunity to have Kathryn as your teacher, consider yourself extremely lucky. You will learn the important stuff: what it's really like to be an agent from a passionate and effective teacher who is an expert on her subject. She even invited her graduating students to attend two future classes with guest speakers she didn't want us to miss!Read More

There are many choices out there to get an education in Real Estate. CA Realty Training offers both an online course with supplemental video lectures by owner Robert Rico and an in class power point presentation with working professionals like Renee throughout Los Angeles. The Beverly Hills location is the only one that offered Saturday classes to fit my work schedule. Attending classes was a very important decision factor in choosing CA Realty Training and much to my surprise Renee presented the material in a fun, informative, supportive and energetic manner. She encourages her students to network with each other and to start letting people know about their new career in real estate right away in order to build momentum and enthusiasm for a business she clearly loves and has been very successful in. I tried another online program two years ago and wasn't able to get through the first chapter.

Not only was she extremely knowledgable but she also had a very genuine spirit and you can tell she really cares about her students full absorbing the information she is relaying. Out of all the teachers in my life, she was one of the few that understood the effectiveness of layering her own experience in the real estate business with the content that we were there to study. She was charming, funny, and engaging and she never required the attention of anybody in the class and yet everyone gave it to her. She is not concerned about putting the spotlight on you but rather she opens up the classroom for a free flow discussion where anybody who is inspired to ask any question can. Thanks to Veronica I was able to pass my real estate exam and feel grateful to have paired up with her as my teacher.Read More

My instructor was Sharon Mancillas and not only did she make the classes fun with her enthusiastic attitude but she shared a lot of her Real Life experiences in Real Estate and she made it very relatable. She was also very honest and realistic about what it takes to make it in RE and what to expect. The online course part of it was great because you have to put the time and effort into actually studying and the exams are open book so not so hard if you study. I was happy that the classes were here in Pasadena at Keller Williams, a great experience and great people!Read More

She presented material clearly and simply and brought a great energy to the classroom. She answered every question any student had and even stayed after class to speak with students that had questions about the content or post-course concerns. She was an overall joy and made for an inviting and comfortable envrionment. CA Realty Training has a dashboard that has tools and features that are evident and unequivocally constructive. I highly recommend purchasing the online videos for each course, taught by instructor Robert Rico. Aside from Renee's extreme clarity, the online videos give a pre-recorded course that you can revert to at any time for up to a year. I will now be continuing on with CA Realty Training's 2-day Crash Course, in which you are discounted if you initially take the 3-college course class with them! Thank you CA Realty Training!Read More

I didn't realize on that first day what an impact that Clarissa and Keller Williams would have on my life. The classes are fun and interactive. I feel like I'm in college again. It is so much fun to play the real estate game in the peninsula since it is such a hot market right now. Clarissa has been nothing short of excellent. This class is highly recommended and worth 10 times the price. There are many facets learning real estate and Clarissa does a fantastic job of covering all of them in a very personable and often lighthearted way. She makes sense of the often confusing terms and terminology and makes it learnable and digestible to people like me. Above all the classes are fun and as I said before I feel like I'm in college but I actually look forward to going to class because at the end of the day a new career awaits.Read More

Classes are in the evening, perfect for those working daytime hours (9 to 5 crowd) and only twice a week. The person teaching the courses is amazing! He gives the run down of all the mistakes he's made in his Real Estate career in hopes you won't commit the same in yours. He explains things thoroughly and doesn't get frustrated to answer questions and spend a little more time on specific topics. He knows people by name, which tells me he cares for his students and you're not apart of a revolving door. He's constantly in contact with them, via text or email, he's genuinely happy when you do well...frankly, he's the best person for the job! He doesn't paint a pretty picture of Real Estate, as those you see on social media - boasting the glamour of Real Estate without so much of the reality of the hard work that goes with it. Victor Hugo is an amazing instructor, I highly recommend his classes!Read More

I recently finished my training at CA Realty Training in Hollywood Hills with Davi Davenport. I'm just waiting patiently right now to take my Real Estate Salespersons exam next month. I definitely made the right decision on choosing this program. It's funny because I knew it the first time I stepped into Davi's class. She is such a great teacher. You can feel the positivity and love she has for everything and everyone around her. I've learned so much; she's basically prepared me for my future in real estate. Hopefully one day I get a chance to work with her. I just want to say Thank You so much to Davi Davenport and the CA Realty Training team!Read More

I took the Saturday class 10am to 2pm due to my schedule. This was the best decision I made because I got to have Robert Rico the owner, established agent, master motivator and the most passionate coach I have ever had teach me what I needed to know to be a successful agent and pass the exam. If it wasn't for Robert Rico being there every Saturday to teach you the 101 of real estate and be there for you every step of the way I would of never finished the course and class. I trusted Robert Rico and believed in him with his powerful messages, preaching, convincing life stories even watching his YOUTUBE videos before my first class I was just hoping that he was going to be the instructor and he was. I took my exam Friday 8/11/2017 and Passed First Try. Everything Rico was saying from day one, on how to study, how to practice, what you need to do to pass the exam was 100% correct and he was right. I believe and trust him and this class and staff is doing it the best and they are the best in the business. There are a lot of gimmick classes and online courses that DONT WORK, don't be fooled. Work with Robert Rico hands on who will help and guide you through the 3 month course and teach you exactly how to pass the final. I recommend this class and staff over any one out there. I have been doing residential real estate lending for 12 years in Santa Monica and I am referring all my clients that want to get into real estate to join Robert Rico and his team. Thank you Robert for helping me start a new chapter in my life and giving me the daily confidence and motivation I needed, even when I was weak and not believing in myself you were there at class and emailing me to stay up and keep my head up and keep grinding. This is the type of class, owner and program you want in your corner and now a friend for life! Thank you Robert Rico and CA REALTY TRAINING!!!!Read More

I was recommended to CA Realty be a friend who had a different teacher so I wasn't sure what to expect. From the first class - I was hooked! Veronica's energy and enthusiasm made every minute of each class exciting. Oftentimes she would relate stories from her career to the material we were learning, which allowed me to bring the curriculum full circle. But most important to me, you could tell she really cared about us all. She was thorough when teaching from the book and sharing her experiences, but encouraged us to speak up and challenge what we didn't understand. She even would reach out to students who had missed a class or two, to make sure they were okay. She has such a big heart and so much knowledge under her belt, its no surprise she has been successful for so many years. Bottom line - I was supposed to move to the Bay Area halfway through my three courses, but changed plans so I could soak up as much knowledge from her as possible. Great teacher, great person.Read More

I still can't believe it. I took the in-class course with Robert Rico and it was great. Especially to be able to ask questions and get a real insight of what you need to know to pass and some real life information/situations for after you pass. Life happened and I wasn't able to take my test right away so a year later I purchased the online prep exam to refresh me and to get ready to take my exam. I was able to study from my phone and my laptop and I am proud to say I passed with all of this help. Totally recommend to anyone looking for a program to get licensed.Read More

She is a skilled, experienced, and talented consummate professional in the field. There are some who might be good at what they do, but couldn't or are unwilling to effectively share tips of the trade with new agents, but that is not Sharon. She seems to relish teaching future agents, and understands the reality that she needs to pass on the things (such as her emphasis on communication as a bedrock of real estate practice) that she wants to see in the field in the future.Read More

This class made learning real estate courses so much fun. I took Saturday morning classes with Renee Despins. She is so enthusiastic about her career and helping her students to engage and learn exciting new concepts. I always looked forward to coming to these classes. The text book material and terms are straight forward. Renee really helped us to grasp the terms and explain how they work in the career world. You get out of the courses what you put in to it. If you are dedicated and willing to learn the material you will do great. Thank you Renee for making this new career so exciting and fun from the get-go.Read More

I tried studying for my license on my own, but was unsuccessful. I met Davi Davenport at an event and told her about my dream of pursuing my RE license and to my surprise, she was an instructor and encouraged me to join her class. I am so happy I listened to her and joined the class because she has been a very good instructor. She is smart, engaging and funny. She keeps the class very interesting. I always look forward to attending her class. Can't wait to take the test and become licensed. I'm also looking forward to mentoring under her guidance.Read More

This is my 2nd time taking a real estate course in CA, although I finished and passed the exams to qualify me to take the state exam to get my license, I never felt quite ready. My teacher wasn't very informative, I never really understood what I was supposed to be learning and it made me completely uninspired. However, retaking the course was the best decision yet. I love the Hollywood hills location with instructor Davi Davenport!! She's not only incredibly educated and well informed in this industry, but she makes learning fun and easy. She always has such great energy which makes for a great classroom environment. Davi has definitely re-inspired me and I'm more excited than ever about embarking on this new chapter in my life!Read More

The easy online access and tools along with the books and in room class made my licensing process with the BRE a breeze! I'm proud to say I finished and passed the four hour state exam in 37 minutes with total confidence that I got a high score. As for the Myrna, my in class instructor, you can't not learn. She has years of experience in the dynamic world of residential real estate. She was there to help guide and navigate us through the whole learning and exam process. BRAVO TO HER!Read More

I'm honestly not sure if i would have passed the exam without taking the crash course with Ian. That being said, I PASSED 😀 !!! The training here was absolutely brilliant! I loved this course. Sure, I got a little antsy with it being eight hours for two days and all haha but Ian gets you pumped up about real estate. He relates his training to similar stories, which allow you to get a real good understanding of what's being taught. He answers all your questions, encourages participation, and will make you laugh 😀 I loved this class, and I highly recommend it!! Great location, clean, open space and lots of street parking (parking lot closed on weekends). Good luck, my fellow real estate agents!! xxRead More

[…]I finished the first month with CA realty school and so far I can tell: it is a great school! Their online portal is on point! It tracks your progress, gives you quizzes, tests, it has ebooks to read (although I would recommend to buy hard copy books from them, it's not expensive), it has flashcards to learn from, videos (for additional fee) - so that the studying process is easier and more complete. I would 100% recommend to attend LIVE classes with the teacher Blanca Aguirre. She is knowledgeable, and has a lot of experience. She would answer all our questions, tell examples from her practise, and explain difficult topics in a simple way so that we understand. Also CA realty school has very good training classes for those who finished the course and got their license.Read More

I […]Thank you to the whole team at CA Realty Training for helping guide me to pass my State Exam! I first got all set up by walking into the office and meeting with Kian. He set me up for the classes and was very helpful. My first month of class was taught by Robert Rico. Robert has a very dynamic personality and makes class fun, coming up with unique ways to relate real life situations to the Real Estate Industry (smoky pool hall,etc). Thank you Rico! After a scheduling change, my next two months were taught by Ashley Wrobel. Wow-- what a wealth of knowledge she is!! She has also been very helpful and has given me great advice so far on what my next steps should be in the Real Estate Industry. Finally, I took the Real Estate Crash course with Ian Medina. He did a wonderful job cramming a whole lot of info into one weekend. He was able to share some of his own personal experiences to relate to the exam material. Very helpful. I took the State Exam two days after the Crash Course and was able to pass on my first attempt! Thanks again to the whole team-- highly recommend this program to anyone who is serious about getting their Real Estate License!!Read More

Rico is not only hilarious and passionate, but sincerely cares about the well being of his students and their future. He has great tactics for making you remember certain terms. I am now a Real Estate Agent at Century 21 and could not be happier with my results. Thank you so much for your time and inspiration, Rico!Read More

He helped to build a base of knowledge allowing me to go into the state exam with confidence. I strongly suggest taking the quizzes in the books at the same time as the class - rather than cramming at the end. This helps you to retain the info better (in my opinion). Highly recommended!Read More

Their instructors are very knowledgeable and their Administration team Raquel and Chase are awesome. I had been taking Kelly's class who by the way is awesome and pasionate about what she is teaching but unfortunitly I had a schedule conflict, I called Raquel and she was so helpful in helping me figure out a plan of action to keep me in class but to also work with my schedule. So, now I'm in Kathryn Shafer's class. Kathryn is amazing, she is on point with what she is teaching and is also very passionate, I love how she has structured her class and brings in guest speakers, she covers all aspects of the business like a pro. I'm lucky to have had the opportunity to have been taught by different instructors because you get a different perspectives which I think is important. I did my homework on all the real estate schools in Los Angeles and I asked a lot of my friends in the industry where the best place would be to take classes and all I can say is I highly recommend CA Realty Training, I promise it doesnt get any better than this...Read More

I also met wonderful people in class and we formed a study group making it all fun! Go for it!! Yeah Robert Rico and the entire staff there who are all helpful. I can't recommend this school enough.Read More
