I attended the online pre-licensing class to obtain my real estate license. I loved it! I was able to get through the class on my own schedule, which was very convenient having four kids. I have also attended post-licensing classes in the classroom,... and always learn so much! Great instructors that make sure you learn.read more

The instructors are all highly knowledgeable on all aspects of the real estate industry, and personable enough to relay this... information to anyone who can learn it. They understand the testing and continuing education processes inside and out and have tailored their course material to match perfectly.

After hearing horror stories about people struggling with the exam and taking it 4-5 times... I was honestly very nervous. BUT... thanks to OREA I passed with flying colors the first time! Not only that, I have done my continuing education courses... there. The instructors are very diverse and personable. They know this industry and they care about YOUR success. They are passionate about you knowing what you’re doing and having people to ask if you don’t. I will continue to take advantage of every course they offer because they have undoubtedly been a key part of my early success! Kaedi Worley, Bixby, OKread more

I've gone through undergrad and graduate education and this is one of the best taught classes I've taken and Steve is an incredible instructor. I've never had things so simply explained... that helps you get it immediately. The class is 9:00 am - 1:30pm but the way it's taught, the time flies by. I was dreading getting my license just because of the time put in it, and Oklahoma Real Estate Academy erased those fears. I am really enjoying everything I'm learning and feel very prepared for the test, as well as my career.read more

My mother had always told me that I should get my real estate license. She’s been a Realtor with a large home builder for a long time and my grandmother was a Realtor too, so she just knew it was “in my blood.” I finally conceded to venture out of the non-profit world thy my entire career had been in, just to test the waters… but mostly to appease my mother. I took the pre-license course that was led by Steve Oliver, and I was immediately hooked.
Read More

His classes were fun and interesting! The guest teachers that he brought in shared their real life experiences and I just couldn’t get enough. Immediately upon getting my license, I went straight through and knocked out my post-license too. Before I knew it, I was making more money than I would have ever dreamed of making and was finally my own boss. I’m a busy mom of two boys and my husband encouraged me to quit my full time job and go into real estate full time instead. I now have a team of four, full-time agents and I’m consistently referred to as a “top producer” by my Brokerage. I have no doubt that none of this would have been possible without the guidance and support of the Oklahoma Real Estate Academy. The Oliver Family and their staff are without a doubt the absolute best real estate advocates and educators in this industry. They not only teach their students how to pass the tests required, but they teach them how to make careers and how to do it all ethically. My family and I will be forever grateful to the academy and to the Oliver’s

My Real Estate story ALL started with Oklahoma Real Estate Academy. I am so thankful to Steve Oliver and his team of experienced instructors. Not only did I feel prepared to take the Oklahoma Real Estate License exam, I felt prepared to start a career. Going through a class and navigating a new career are very different experiences. Fortunately, the Oklahoma Real Estate Academy filled me with the confidence and excitement to succeed at both!

Amanda Fraley

I was very fortunate to be a Stay-At-Home-Mom for 8 years before getting into Real Estate.  Once my kids were all in school, I knew I wanted a job that I could be flexible in, but also excel in without limitation.  My father has been a Realtor my whole life and has encouraged me to get my license for years. Being the rebel that I am, I resisted my dad’s advice until I realized it fit all the criteria of what I was looking for in a career.
Read More
As much as I hate to admit it, my dad was right. Looking back, I wish I would have got my license as soon as I turned 18!  
When looking for classes, I found Oklahoma Real Estate Academy and from the moment I walked in that it was the right fit.  The instructors are amazing and genuinely love the industry. They take the time to make sure you understand the material and have many stories from their experience they share.  After passing the Pre-License Course, I was able to pass my State Real Estate Exam on the first try! I went right back to OREA for my Post-Licensing.  
Real Estate has opened the doors for me in so many ways.  I’ve grown as a Realtor over the last 5 years, with around $10 Million in total sales throughout my career. Each client and home offers a new opportunity to learn things you never knew you needed to know, like how many layers are on the roof and what type of loan a mobile home qualifies for.  
After a few years in the business, I decided to go back to get my Brokers License. OREA was my hero again, getting me prepared and ready to take my Brokers State Exam!  Now, as a Licensed Brokers-Associate in the State of Oklahoma, I can honestly say, Oklahoma Real Estate Academy has built the foundation for my career.  The relationships, experience, and knowledge you walk away from there with will last a lifetime!

  KEEP SCROLLING TO FIND OUT WHAT WE CAN DO FOR YOU! 

GET YOUR LICENSE

OREA’s pre-license course is going to cover a vast amount of information; information on differing industries like appraisals, contract law, surveying, finance, environmental concerns, hazardous substances, insurance, title/estate proceedings, trust procedures, etc. It’s not an easy course, but luckily our instructors excel at tying all of this information together and delivering it to our students in a way they can relate to. 

OKLAHOMA REAL ESTATE LICENSING EXAM

Our Pre-Licensing Course will fully prepare you to take your exam.
Learn more about the exam at : www.ok.gov

POST-LICENSE COURSES

So, you’ve got your license, but now what? If you’re not getting the appropriate training, this can be a really scary job. In our post license course, we teach you everything from how to explain a contract to a client, to how to structure your business plan appropriately in preparation for your first tax season as an independent contractor.

BROKERS LICENSE

The life of a real estate agent can be filled with meaningful conversations. From helping someone buy their very first home, to helping someone fulfill their dream of building passive wealth through real estate investments, a real estate agent can achieve great job satisfaction through helping others obtain their dreams. But what if you could do all of that AND help a person realize their dreams of becoming a real estate agent? This is the class that can make that a reality. 

CONTINUING EDUCATION

Continuing education is a requirement for all licensees in the great state of Oklahoma. It’s often associated with words like “mandatory”, “perfunctory”, and “required.” While it is all of those things, it doesn’t have to feel like a chore. We’ve made our CE courses to be digestible and informative while also fulfilling OREC regulations.

FSBO (For Sale By Owner)

For Sale By Owner Properties (FSBOs). I’m not here to bash on the renaissance woman or man that is not afraid of a challenge. Someone who is not afraid to get their hands dirty; to branch out and try doing a little trade work themselves to avoid the costs of hiring a professional. I’ve been there. I’ve had my dryer spread out all over my garage floor with a YouTube video pulled up on how to replace the heating element.

We’ve Got 99 Problems … and Low Inventory is All of Them

We’ve Got 99 Problems … and Low Inventory is All of Them

So what does low inventory mean? To answer that, we’ll jump to the most basic of economic principles: Supply and Demand. Generally speaking, when supply goes up, demand goes down. Inversely, When supply goes down, demand goes up. Now, obviously, like anything, it is not entirely that cut and dry. There are a lot of nuances that could alter the path of either supply or demand and they are not always going to be directly tied to one another.

Real Estate Negotiations

Real Estate Negotiations

Warren Buffet has a quote “If you cannot control your emotions, you cannot control your money.” That is very true, from my experience in this industry and others. If a person can elicit an emotional response from you from their words or actions, they can control you. Keep control of your emotions, talk to your agent, take your time digesting information, and build a logical, emotionless response. Counter like they were close with their first offer and you’d like to do business with them. Even if you really would like to use their first offer as toilet paper.
