It's a tale as old as time. No, not Beauty & the Beast, the other age-old tale: old school vs. new school. Champions School of Real Estate is generally regarded as one of the best real estate schools in Texas and has been since it came on the scene in 1983, but AceableAgent (hey, that's us!) is quickly gaining traction among new and seasoned agents alike. But which should you trust -- new or old? When you're choosing an online real estate school, you deserve to have all the information before making a decision. To make sure you're informed, we're going to do a comparison breakdown of everything AceableAgent has to offer vs. what you'd get as a Champions student. Let us show you why older isn't always better.

The Courses

AceableAgent:

AceableAgent's pre-license courses come with groundbreaking features, such as our Contract Workshops which help the student get experience with filling out real estate contracts. While most other schools only give a line-by-line explanation of contracts, AceableAgent actually gives you the hands-on training you need to know how to fill out real estate contracts when you finish our courses. In addition to Contract Workshops, our courses offer engaging video content, graphics, and math workshops.

Did we mention we're also the most flexible online real estate school in Texas? We want to fit our courses to your schedule, not the other way around. That means not only can you take our courses in your web browser, you can also take them on-the-go from your phone or tablet with our mobile app! Fancy, right?

But is it effective? AceableAgent's current TREC exam pass rate is 82.01% -- 1010 out of a total of 1232 total enrollees of the course.See TREC Provider Exam Pass Rates

Champions School of Real Estate:

Champions is first and foremost a classroom-based learning institution, which unfortunately means their online courses aren’t as high in quality as those seen from other online real estate schools. Instead of offering a full, interactive online experience, their courses are presented in the form of a downloadable PDF textbook and separate online chapter quizzes. While this can technically get the job done, this format lacks the instructional design and advanced learning tools offered through AceableAgent's courses.

With that said, Champions does offer a lot of opportunity for people looking to be in all areas of real estate with licensing courses in real estate, loan origination, home inspection, and appraisal. They also have an extensive offering of designations for agents and realtors to obtain.

But is it effective? Champions' TREC exam pass rate is 61.00%* (12,000 students have passed the course out of 19,615 total enrollees).

The Price

AceableAgent:

AceableAgent is fairly inexpensive compared to other online real estate schools in Texas, making it one of the best values around. Under our current sale prices, our basic Get Started package starts at $497 and is regularly $677. We offer our courses at lower price points because we don't want you to have to struggle to start your new future. If that price is still a little too steep, we do offer tuition assistance to help you spread your payment out over time.

What you get with AceableAgent's Get Started package:

  • 180-hour Pre-License course bundle
  • Unlimited Exam Prep
  • Instructor Support
  • Free Exam Proctoring (a $90 value)

Price: $497

Champions School of Real Estate

As one of the oldest schools around, Champions has built a great reputation. This can be a huge plus of choosing Champions for your real estate education. However, a downside of this is that Champions tends to charge insanely high prices because they've always been able to get away with doing so. A basic course package at Champions will cost you $945 and that's the sale price. Not only are their prices higher, but they don't offer any payment plans or tuition assistance to help you afford the higher prices.

What you get with Champions School of Real Estate's Basic package:

  • 180-hour Pre-License course bundle
  • Exam Prep

Price: $945

Customer Service

AceableAgent:

We know that the heart of our school is you. Without our students, we'd have nothing to do all day. Boring! Because you're so important to us, we make sure our customer support is second to none. AceableAgent offers multiple ways for you to contact our Customer Support Team: by phone, email, chat support, or you can shoot us a message on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. In addition to full social access, when you purchase our courses you'll be assigned your very own real estate expert who will be available to answer any questions you may have via email.

Champions School of Real Estate:

Though Champions does have an extensive FAQ section for students' inquiring minds, their methods of contact are a little slim. Instead of a team of Customer Support Specialists waiting to assist you, Champions offers one phone number per school location which is usually answered by the front desk operator. This can cause issues if the operator steps away from the front desk or just doesn't know how to answer the student's question. Champions does also allow you to contact them through an email form that can be found on their website.

In the end, the decision is yours to make, but we hope that you'll give us a chance to join you on the journey to becoming a real estate agent. We'll treat you right, we promise!
