How long does it take to receive my books?
Courses include a PDF/E-Book that may be downloaded immediately, there is no wait. You may purchase hard copies and pick them up at 8828 Research Blvd, Austin, TX 78758 or have them shipped to you. Books are typically shipped the next business day after purchase and are shipped via US Postal mail. Please allow 5-7 business days for delivery.
Can I pick my books up?
Yes, when you register for your correspondence courses and choose to purchase the hard copies of the textbooks. You will also have the option to have them shipped to you.
If I signup the day before my renewal is due, is this enough time to complete the course?
We do not recommend this. TREC rules state that CE credits must be posted to your TREC account prior to paying your renewal fees to avoid being charged the $200 deferral fee. If you wait until the day before the renewal is due your credit for the course will not have time to post.
What happens if I run into a problem with registration or online test?
Our top notch technical support team will be more than happy to assist you with any problems you may encounter. For customer support regarding online correspondence courses, please call: 1-800-624-5440, or email: info@BuildMyREBusiness.com.

If I have to change my class dates, is there a penalty?
Absolutely not. We will gladly change your dates as many times as you need.
Do your classes ever cancel?
Very rarely, but due to lack of enrollment some classes do cancel. Typically these classes are renewal classes or classes offered on a non-traditional schedule. Core, CE and Prep classes rarely cancel except in cases of an instructor emergency.
Do I get a lunch break?
Yes, in weekday and weekend courses you will get a lunch break every day from 12:30- 1:30.
How do I find a sponsoring broker?
Most students choose a major real estate company to become their sponsoring broker. You do, however, have many choices for your sponsoring broker, such as an independently owned brokerage or leasing agency. We have many job postings at The Real Estate Business School in our break room and on our call board.
