Here's what our students have to say about AARE's Licensing program.
AARE was an excellent school. The material is thorough and the instructors are all fantastic. I especially enjoyed the classes taught by Lance and Deb. I recommend AARE to anyone considering a career in real estate!

My experience with AARE has been both challenging and enjoyable. From Kassandra, and her helpful demeanor and attitude, to every instructor - AARE has been very professional. Starting a new career after many years was challenging and AARE instructors were more than willing to go over and above to assist with a successful outcome. I would recommend AARE highly! Many thanks!

Just wanted to send a note of 'thanks' for the great education and experience. I passed my school test last week and passed both the state and national this past weekend. Much of the 'thanks' goes to Kelly Soriano who I had for quite a few of my classes. She was the perfect balance of patient and tough and really set me up to succeed on all tests on the first try. I should be licensed and dangerous by next week. Many thanks and certainly happy to recommend AARE!

From the class environment to the amazing teachers. Everything was made so easy to learn. After years of being in the retail business in a Regional position I came to class pretty wide eyed. Both Annie and Mark made learning not only fun, but showed that they really cared and wanted us to pass. There was great sincerity on their part ...

When I decided to get my Real Estate Sales License I didn’t know where to start. So I visited open houses to ask agents who they went through to get licensed. 70+ percent said they went through Arizona Academy of Real Estate and that they still use AARE for continuing education. The staff is professional, kind and very helpful. My experience with AARE was magnificent!

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. Classes in Scottsdale are relatively small, which allow for questions and clarifications, the instructors are knowledgeable and engaging and Deb the owner was there for me when I needed her assistance. The staff members were polite and pleasant, the facilities are comfy, in short- I had a great experience and will go back if I ever decide to get ...
