The videos take a class I've taken and then even taught in my office and summarize them into about 20 minutes.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Texas SAE?
Texas SAE (Sales Apprentice Education) is the name for the courses required for all new real estate agents in Texas. These courses must be completed within your first two years as a licensed real estate agent. Without these courses, you are not eligible to renew your real estate license following your first two year period.
How do I renew my Texas real estate license?
As a new real estate agent in Texas, you are considered a Sales Agent Apprentice for the first two years. To renew your Texas real estate license following this two-year period, you will need to:
Complete 90 hours of TREC-approved apprentice education courses plus two four-hour legal update courses.
Provide proof of completion to TREC 10 days before renewing your license.
Submit your license renewal application through the TREC online portal. Be sure to keep copies of your renewal confirmation for your records.
The process for renewing your real estate license every two years after your first renewal is similar, but instead of completing 90 hours of SAE courses, you’ll only need to complete 18 hours of continuing education courses.
What happens if I do not renew my license?
You can renew your Texas real estate license for up to six months after the expiration date. After six months, you would need to apply for reinstatement rather than renewal. But you only have up to two years after expiration to request a reinstatement; if your license has been expired for more than two years, you will need to reapply as an agent and pass the real estate exam again.
How often do I need to take Texas SAE?
The SAE courses only need to be taken before your first two-year license renewal. After your first renewal, you’ll only need to complete 18 hours of continuing education courses (plus the eight hours of legal updates) every two years to renew your real estate license.
What courses are included in this bundle?
This Texas SAE course bundle includes the 90 hours of coursework required to renew your Texas real estate license following your first two years in the industry.
The SAE courses included are:
Texas Sales and Marketing 101 for Real Estate Professionals (30 hours): This course will help you understand how to effectively market yourself as a sales agent and market your listings on behalf of your sellers.
Property Management (30 hours): This course will teach you how to manage income properties on behalf of the homeowners. You’ll learn how to represent landlords, screen tenants, and liaison between the two parties.
Texas Essentials of Real Estate Investment (30 hours): This course will teach you how to evaluate real estate as an investment, preparing you to best represent real estate investors or even invest in income properties of your own.
How do I report my hours to TREC?
You can submit proof of course completion to TREC via email. Just make sure to submit your documentation 10 days before renewing your license.
