American Real Estate Academy Courses

The American Real Estate Academy was established in 1972 by Theodore J. Vlachos and has helped thousands of students pass the state exam to become licensed salespersons and brokers. For over 33 years our school has worked hard to raise the level of quality in real estate education. The results of our efforts have made us a pioneer in our field and the largest real estate school in Massachusetts. In fact, we are the oldest continuously owned and operated school in the state and one of the oldest in the entire country.

We put great care into choosing our instructors. We seek out the best the real estate industry has to offer and can guarantee you, our students, a positive experience while you discover the world of real estate. Our proven results month after month keep us on track in maintaining high standards. We consistently score higher than the state average on our monthly report by the testing service and we never get tired of hearing from our students who pass the exam on the first try. Many graduates of our school have gone on to very successful careers in real estate, and we are proud to say that we are currently educating our third generation of students. As you look toward your future, we hope you consider our school as a source of real estate knowledge, a place to launch your new career, and a great opportunity for meeting new friends in the real estate field.
