First things first. Get your real estate license.

Before you can start your exciting, meaningful, high earning-potential real estate career, you’ll need to take prelicensing classes and pass the licensing exam. Here at Baird & Warner, we make it easier for you to find out if a career in real estate is right for you with complementary career seminars. And once you’ve decided to take the next step and start a career in real estate, we offer flexible prelicensing course options like evening classes, day time classes, hybrid classes and self study classes.


Prelicensing and Illinois Realtors® Real Estate Courses.

Unlike most real estate brokerages, Baird & Warner has its own branch of licensing school within Illinois Realtors® with a strong curriculum and small classes to encourage learning and engagement. We’re picky about our instructors. That’s why they are all active agents and can provide real-life experience to our students. Getting your license is a big investment of your time, so choose the highly respected real estate company that set the standard in training and wants to see you succeed.
