Best Features

Concise Content

The course work is pithy and does not insult your intelligence. The content is applicable and worthwhile. It does not bludgeon you to death with the basics but instead presents challenging questions and issues facing real estate agents.

The CE Shop also uses its content with in person real estate schools.

Getting set up and beginning the course is very simple.

The course presents exactly what you need for your license or license renewal. When complete, it automatically reports your results to your state real estate commission.

The modules themselves are easy to work through.

Easy to Use

My Legal Updates course was, of course, very much specific to my State of Texas.

Some of the other courses, however, were general, like the course on document best practices. There are some things there I had never heard of, as they apply to other states! But that was a small portion and most of it had takeaways.

Generalized Curriculum

This is likely going to be similar with other schools.

Obviously all the core license and continuing education courses are present.

And there is a decent selection of additional courses, but not as diverse a catalog as some competitors.

The Standard includes exam prep and the “Pass or Don’t Pay” guarantee at $629 though frequently offered at a discount.

Biggest Pitfalls

Smaller Catalog

The Value Package includes “Business Building” for $669 courses in addition to the basic licensing requirements.

Finally, the Premium Package includes your required first two-year SAE courses as well for $1029.

*This is current to the best of my knowledge at the time of this writing. Contact the vendor directly to check current prices, discounts, and terms.

I used The CE Shop for my CE course to renew my license.

I liked the content. I normally try to race through this stuff as it’s telling me stuff I already know. But The CE Shop got to the point and focused on difficult nuances of real estate, law, and ethics. I had to pay attention before answering questions (though, that said, I finished the courses quite a bit faster than the “recommended” completion time without issues).

They even managed some humorous moments.

Regarding support, at one point, there was a confusing question that I thought had a technical problem. I reached out in the chat and quickly got a response and was able to move forward.

The delivery platform seemed very concerned that I wasn’t who I said I was. It frequently required me to confirm my identity with my phone number or email, and sometimes even logged me out altogether. But that was at most a minor nuisance.

My Personal Recommendation
