The Real Estate Program at Butte College is designed with two broad objectives. The first is to prepare beginning students for entry into the real estate field, a rapidly changing industry. The second objective is to upgrade the knowledge and skills of real estate professionals.
Courses are also available for individuals interested in increasing their awareness and skills in the technical aspects of real estate transactions. The successful real estate professional is a person who relates well with people and is a "self-starter." Classes are interactive and include guest speakers and field trips. Three options of study are offered: a one-year program leading to a Certificate of Achievement; a two-year program leading to an Associate Degree; and California license for salespersons and brokers.
The real estate industry offers many interesting areas of employment and specialization. Positions may be found in real estate sales, appraisal, property management, finance, land development and consulting. A license is required of all real estate salespeople. In addition, a salesperson must work under the supervision of a licensed broker.
The Business Education Department offers a wide range of Certificate and Degree Programs designed to prepare students to advance socially, economically, and professionally within your selected careers.
Certificates and Certificates of Achievement are awarded to indicate a satisfactory level of achievement in programs requiring less than two years of full-time study.
