Historic Measures Taken In NJ Real Estate Industry
New Jersey Real Estate Commission Allowing Temporary Online Learning for the First Time

HACKENSACK, NJ, April 1, 2020 – The New Jersey Real Estate Commission has taken the unprecedented step to allow real estate students to take the required 75 Hour Pre-Licensing course online during the COVID-19 pandemic.  The Center for Real Estate Education located in Hackensack, New Jersey is one of the first schools that are offering approved online Virtual Live Classes to all who want to become real estate agents. The process will only take 2 weeks.

“The way we work is changing, many people who are in 9-5 professions want to have control over their income and futures.  They never want to be in a situation where they are laid off without a means of income again,” Eric Anderson, State Director for the Center of Real Estate Education explains. “Real estate agents can be full time or part-time – it is a profession that can provide a full salary or be extra income.”

In the past, the New Jersey Real Estate Commission has rejected the idea of online real estate salesperson classes.  Real estate is an involved profession that benefits from face to face teachers, in-class discussions, and networking with other soon-to-be agents. However, with the COVID-19 crisis, the NJREC is allowing real estate schools like the Center for Real Estate Education to provide online classes.

“Interest in New Jersey State’s required 75-hour real estate licensing class has risen over 200% since New Jersey was ordered to stay at home.  New Jersey residents want to take this opportunity to expand their professional lives. We have the technology to create an interactive, live class that will feel just like you are sitting in our Hackensack location..” Noelle Frieson, Director at the Center for Real Estate Education said. “We commend the New Jersey Real Estate Commission on their forward-thinking and commitment to the profession by making these emergency allowances.”

For the duration of this pandemic, The Center for Real Estate will offer daytime and evening, interactive, live, 2-week virtual classes, taught by their expert licensed instructors. Information on the requirements and class registration can be found a The Center For Real Estate Education has set up a hotline at 201.343.6640 for those who are interested in finding out more information on becoming a real estate agent.

Anderson added, “The opportunity to take the real estate license course online is now, while interested people are home with the time. Once the stay at home order is lifted students will only be able to take the course in person. Students will be able to get their licenses in only two weeks.”
