I used Real Estate Express for my CE in 2021.
It was a frustrating experience.
The UX is obnoxious. There are 3 screens, lots of boxes to hide or expand material, and the video playback controls are white – invisible against the white video background!
Some of it cannot be helped. Like any good regulatory agency, TREC has obnoxious rules on timing course participation. I was prompted to input my phone number to make sure I was paying attention to the course. Apparently, I got my own phone number wrong. The first time I left out the hyphens and was locked out after just 15 minutes. The second time I included the hyphens and was locked out.
Then, after getting back in, it was back at the beginning! And the volume was muted. I’m still not sure what I was supposed to do to get back to where I was at. I skipped to the chapter quiz where I got 87.5% of the questions correct having not actually consumed the material and moved on.
I finished it in 2 hours, but had to keep it open for 4 hours to comply with TREC, checking every time it asked if I was still logged in. Thanks TREC!
Rather than conversational, the instructor’s delivery was scripted and rather wooden, and I’d give the audio a C letter grade. The exceptions were intermittent live seminars in which the instructor, before an audience, is much more conversational and engaging. I feel like the whole course should be like that.
The content itself was fine, although the only CE choice for Texas in addition to my Legal I and II updates was a real estate investing course I wasn’t that interested in.
I paid about $135 and got my 18 hours complete. So I achieved my end state.
