Denver Real Estate School Reviews

What our students are saying about us.

“When Patrick says to his classes, “If you put in the effort, we will do whatever it takes to see you succeed” he is not joking. As a student with dyslexia, traditional learning and standardized testing have never really worked for me. From the first interaction at AREI the staff went out of their way to help me find all of the accommodations I needed to obtain my brokers license. Patrick and his team have been exceptional. This is the first time in my educational journey that a group of people have taken a genuine interest in how I learn and provided the appropriate assistance so I could demonstrate my knowledge and achieve success. Armbrust Real Estate Institute has earned my business for life!”

New Broker Associate

“I wanted to share that I have taken several classes from Patrick. He is great in class, however, I was surprised at how well his online presence was too. I was really impressed with the online experience and I really enjoyed the class. Patrick actually NEARLY made me want to reactivate my license just from his optomistic and honest presentation of what is usually god-awful boring material.”

“Thanks a million. The flexibility of the online was great. As an extremely busy agent, it is hard for me to get away from my phone for several hours to complete a 3 day course during normal business hours. The class allowed me to complete on my own schedule. The material was well presented and the timeliness was great.”

“I have already closed on three transactions and have three more closings in December. I am working on a 1.4 million dollar deal and should close sometime in January. I am so busy and excited! When preparing contracts, I can hear Pat and Daves voice in my head making sure all my I’s are dotted and T’s are crossed. What a blessing you all have been.”

“I looked at all the schools, and not knowing about Pat, Dave, John, Debbie and all the others, I’d say I hit the jack pot coming to Armbrust.”

Patricia Bedford

“I would like to personally thank you for teaching our ABR class. It was the best money spent since starting my real estate career. The ideas and strategies have already started making a difference in my life and business.”

“Your appraisal class and apprenticeship is the best in the business. I’ve taken other career classes and certifications, but never have I seen better return for my time, effort and money.”

Ron Martinez

Registered Appraiser

“During the interview process with various agencies, without exception, the brokers were aware of the Armbrust name and what that name meant to the education I received. I can’t tell how happy I am that I chose Armbrust. Not only was this an advantage in the interviews, but I felt thoroughly prepared for the exam.”

Rhonda Brewer

Priority Real Estate

“I wanted to take the time to personally thank you and your staff for all the time and effort taken to assist me towards the road to success in the real estate world. Throughout my educational experience, someone was always available to answer any questions that arose. I researched many schools prior to choosing Armbrust Real Estate Institute. I can sincerely say that I was always treated as the number one priority to anyone I spoke to and that dedication has not seen an end.”

Lori Dreckman

Coldwell Banker, Cherry Creek Branch

“I would like to thank you for providing me an opportunity to develop myself in the world of business. When I first came to your classes, I was unsure as to my chances for success. Later, I was very impressed by your dedication to your students. You provided us access to the correct tools – even outside of regular business hours. Through your patience I found greater self confidence to achieve my goals.”

Ann Thurman

“I just wanted to let you and your outstanding staff know that I would recommend AREI to anyone who is looking to get into real estate. I passed the test the first time and could not have done it without all of the support and help that you provided. I learned not only the technical aspects of selling and buying real estate, but also the practical applications that one needs to know on a daily basis.”

Phil Pitts

Coldwell Banker Residential

“I am so glad I found AREI. All of my concerns about going back to school were eliminated by your competent teaching styles, they helped me feel confident and capable about becoming a broker. You are simply terrific. You truly were supportive and professional in your counseling and I would never have made it if it were not for your concern and passion for teaching and the learning process. Finally a big thank you for the tutoring sessions, they were most helpful in getting me ready for my state exam.”
