How to get the most from your pre-licensing course
So you’ve decided to become a real estate professional – congratulations! This is the first step towards a rewarding new career that will provide you with more freedom, more flexibility, and hopefully more fun.
Now comes the wonderful but challenging next step: completing your pre-licensing courses.
At Relo, we see a lot of students who are juggling their pre-licensing courses with many other demands: a full-time job, family responsibilities, volunteering, community work, and so much more. Finding the right balance, investing in yourself and your new career, and soaking up all the great info in your course can feel challenging at times – but we have some tips to make it easier.
Whether you’ve already started your pre-licensing course, or you still have yet to sign up, it can be helpful to go in with the strategies below to help you make the most of your learning experience.
- Set yourself a study schedule. It’s important to carve out blocks of time where you can work on your course uninterrupted. Map out a study schedule that works for your life, and then protect that time without compromise! Set boundaries and expectations with everyone else who needs your time, and make it clear that you’ll be tied up during those hours every week.
- Find a dedicated work space. Just as you will need to define time to study, we recommend defining space as well. Even if it’s just a tiny corner in your basement, dining room, or bedroom, we suggest setting up a work space where you consistently go to study. Clear out any clutter, make sure it’s comfortable, and it will become easier to focus and to mentally separate study time from the rest of your day.
- Take advantage of the REcosystem. There are lots of resources that can help support you on your learning journey, and the REcosystem is our top suggestion. Complement your education and expand your knowledge with our podcasts, blogs, and tip of the week – plus instructor-led courses on hot topics that will be invaluable as you build your business.
- Apply what you learn. You know what they say: use it or lose it! You may not have endless opportunities to apply what you’re learning in a real-world setting yet, but we recommend finding (and making) creative ways to apply your knowledge. That could be as simple as explaining a new concept to your friend, or sharing your new knowledge on social media in the form of a tip. Sometimes sharing information with others is the best way to make it stick!
