Live | Virtual Online vs. Self-Paced Online: What is the Difference?

Instructor-Led Learning:  The live stream online course is instructor led.  It is organized in a live virtual meeting room (Zoom) where students and the instructor meet together to communicate via video conferencing.  The course follows a specified schedule and requires students and the instructor to be online at the same time.  Follow along in textbook, hear real-life examples and ask questions just as if you were sitting in the classroom.  CLASSROOM SCHEDULE | SESSION START DATES

Text-Based Learning:  Students learn on their own schedule without a real-time instructor and can log in and out as desired from home, work or anywhere with internet access.  The course is divided into short pages that you click through, and there are periodic quizzes to help you remember what you read.  Treated like a 40-hour work week, your education can be completed quickly so you can move on with your new real estate career.

Dear Bob: Just sending a note of thanks for giving me a solid foundation to kick start my real estate career. The PSI Exam was easy & I couldn't have passed it without your expertise & great teaching. Thank you! After being in the business for 30 days or so, I've met a lot of agents... Most of them did not have a great teacher & most of them will not recommend their school... I, on the other hand, will be speaking of you FOREVER!! You definitely are "the best in the Business"!! Thank you so much!

Thanks Bob Chance for doing a great job presenting to us what my husband Ken and I needed to get thru the Virginia State salesman and broker exam! We quickly got enrolled with PSI upon completion of your final class and got our licenses. Appreciate you understanding the challenges we faced coming from another state. Good thing, the new agency disclosure coming out July 1 is what we have been practicing for the last five years in Texas! So, we will feel like something is familiar to us. Thanks again!

Julie Gezella

It was very informative. Nice to have someone teaching with real world experience in the business.


I really enjoyed the class. Even though there was a lot of reading, Bob made it interesting and fun with lots of great examples of real life scenarios i.e. things we could relate to, recognize and understand.

S. Barlow

I enjoyed taking the real estate course at the Advanced School of Real Estate. It gave me the tools I needed to pass my P.S.I exam and before I knew it, I was working as a Realtor.

Andrea Mulder

Advanced School of Real Estate is top-notch! I enjoyed my time there and made some lasting friends and colleagues! I quickly moved from classes to working in the real estate world.

Suzy Patterson

I thoroughly enjoyed this school. It was very informative. The teacher is very understanding. He makes the whole process easier. Thank you.


Going into the process I was extremely nervous. I wanted a classroom environment to have that personal experience. The first day matched my expectations. Even though the new format is due to the current economic situation. Mr. Chance and his administration definitely thought things through and made the classroom environment feel personal. Lessons were clear, concise and entertaining. He provided real world experiences to match the lesson. Its worth it, take the leap of faith and what you desire must manifest!


Great instructor, real life examples, engaging.


The recorded courses were a game changer. I could watch or listen to any class session the night prior to the actual class. I wish I had that in college! Really enjoyed the class and the presentation.


I would give 10 stars if I could--- I had an AMAZING experience with Advanced School of RE!! Bob made the material super interesting with anecdotes about his experiences and somehow made it feel very interactive even though we were all on Zoom. They were also flexible and made it easy to keep up with everything. I was able to pass the PSI exam first time due to this school-- thank you so much Bob and Jennifer!!


I'm happy I decided to go with Advanced School of Real Estate, no regrets. Bob is very knowledgeable, great with his life experience and sharing his knowledge. I highly recommend this school. Thank you Bob for a great experience, and thank you to your wife and staff for the great communication!


Robert was very informative, Any questions I had he was able to answer, the classes weren’t overwhelming, he made sure we understood what we were reading and that is very important to me. I thank you Advanced school of real estate. I definitely recommend this school to anyone.


A lot of helpful examples of real life Real Estate experiences


Bob was a phenomenal instructor. I’m married with two young children and active duty military. Bob and his wife gave me plenty of options for completing course work and testing. Their school can accommodate any schedule. I am very great full for their class and would recommend them to anyone! Eric


I'm so glad I chose Advanced School of Real Estate for my pre-licensure education course. Bob was a fantastic instructor. He covered all the important information quickly but still managed to answer students' questions. He also did a great job providing examples of how certain laws and regulations apply to everyday real estate practice. Best of all -- he was enthusiastic about the material and kept it interesting!
