Here's what our students have to say about AARE's Licensing program.
Loved this school! Before starting I checked both options available for me in Scottsdale and this was by far the most friendly, organized and helpful.

I had my first class at the school and must say it was a GREAT class. The instructor Angie kept it simple but very informative. I am hoping to finish all classes by first week of September. Would recommend to anyone looking for a real estate school that actually cares.

I love this school. I went to classes at my own pace and I was able to easily obtain my sales license and I just obtained my real estate broker license today. Amazing staff and they seemed so dedicated to helping you succeed.

I wanted to send you an email to thank you, Donna and John for helping me get licensed! I am a single mother and work full time so the fact that you have a flexible schedule really made things a lot easier. Again, thank you and the whole staff for always being helpful and kind!

Going to AARE is like having your favorite teacher from grade school in every class! A friend and I came together and just passed our National and State tests. Without exception, everybody at AARE, including Deb, the owner, is very supportive and really cares that you have a future as a realtor.
