 Hello Stanley,

I used realestateexpress.com which had some pretty good study tools and sample exams to prepare with. I've never been a good "online course" learner but this helped me out during a time when I was injured. 

If you prefer to take the course in a classroom setting, you can search for RE license schools in your area. I'm sure someone from your market will read this thread and chime in!...

Best of luck to you and your wife moving forward!

Hello @Stanley Montoya IV ! My wife and I used Arizona School of Business and Real Estate for our classes and we were very pleased. At the time there wasn't an option to do it online, however, and if that option were available then, as it is now, we most likely would have gone that route.  I wouldn't suggest any supplemental training/study material.  My wife and I passed both our school exam and the state exam on our first try. Let me know if I can help in any way! 

Take your time with the process. This will be a start to a new chapter in your life so it shouldn't be rushed. Take as many courses as you can to prepare, use this network to message people who have taken the exam and get direct advice from them. People are your resource here

@Jeffrey Daniels thank you for posting. Real Estate and servitude has always been a passion of ours. We want to have an opportunity to utilize that license in projects we are working through, as well as new ones that came across our plate. We believe this can be a good step to help others, ourselves and provide a full-time future if we so choose.

I think a passion for servitude is certainly commendable! Since you're already involved w/ real estate investing, I'd recommend researching the liabilities of being a licensed real estate salesperson in Arizona. You may want to check out the code of ethics, ARS, and commissioner's standards to see how they may alter your current way of handling buy/sell business and investments. Talk with brokerages where you may hang your license, to get a better idea of what an increased cost of doing business may be. It takes a good bit of time and money to maintain the license, and then you get to worry about errors & omissions, or even losing your license. I love what I'm doing in real estate, if I had the choice between being licensed or adding doors to my portfolio every year... well, I don't have that choice yet!
