Armbrust Real Estate Institute was the first state-approved Colorado real estate school. We provide live classroom and online courses for real estate licensing, appraisal licensing, mortgage broker licensing, and continuing education.

Since 1962 the real estate industry has considered Armbrust training exceptional. Not just for our 52 year history of first time state exam passing rates, or our involvement in the real estate industry, but because our students success is the major focus of Armbrust education.

AREI is unique among educational providers in that the school director and all faculty are involved in the business of real estate, appraisal and mortgage lending bringing a practical component to the education. You will receive an unparalleled depth of understanding and competency from industry leaders in the classroom, the very best materials, state of the art facilities, and exceptional personal assistance including one-on-one tutoring, our instructor hotline, and the exhaustive student resource center.

Our learning program has consistently produced higher state exam passing rates than any other provider. This is accomplished as we present practical and comprehensive learning through our refined education process. The net result is an unmatched level of competency leading to success in your chosen industry. Our last four year average first-time passing rate on the real estate license exam exceeds 90%!


If you successfully complete the AREI pre-license program and assessment quiz on the first attempt, and do not pass the state examination on the first try, we will pay your second exam fee!
