Real Estate: Broker (Pre-License)

Succeed and Achieve Your Goals

Gold Coast School of Real Estate is Florida’s largest real estate school. For more than 40 years we have offered both classroom and online learning courses to professionals like yourself. Click the tabs below for more information on this course. For assistance with registration, contact our Career Counselors at 1-800-732-9140.

Gold Coast Schools has been offering professional education since 1970 and has grown to become Florida's number one real estate school based upon the number of enrollments during the past 10 years, the number of permanent classroom locations, and the classes and service that we provide.

We stand behind our motto “The Proof is in the Passing,” because Gold Coast students consistently complete their course, pass the state exam, and launch successful careers. If you are serious about getting your Brokers license, Gold Coast has developed a tried and true program that enables you to do so.

The Broker's course has recently been redesigned utilizing the new Florida syllabus. The course covers real estate law, principles and practices, real estate math, closing statements and escrow account reconciliation amongst other areas.

Gold Coast’s course offers many features that other schools simply don't. For example:

  • Both Classroom and Online courses offered during the day and in the evenings to provide you with flexibility in scheduling
  • Super Exam Cram course (a 2 and a half day comprehensive review) is included in the tuition
  • Unlimited review for 2 years (sales and broker classes on a space available basis)
  • No fees to retake classes within 2 years
  • Gold Coast exclusive copyrighted materials
  • All classrooms equipped with an LCD projector, computer, Power Point, and High speed internet connections (the same technology and presentation methods used in colleges & universities)
  • Customer service staff of more than 25 dedicated professionals to serve you
  • All instructors have voicemail and email to assist their students
  • Cooperation and referral programs with all area brokers

When comparing schools, be careful! Some schools may tell you that they are as good as Gold Coast, or that they employ former Gold Coast instructors. Often these schools are out of business in a matter of months leaving students stranded. Because the quality of your education will ultimately drive your careers success, attend Gold Coast where... the proof is in the passing!
