About Our Class

The Boston Realty Institute has taught the state-required, forty-hour Massachusetts Real Estate Agent Pre-Licensing Course in a classroom setting since 2004. Thousands of individuals have successfully completed our in-person accredited training. Over 2507 graduates of our school have gone on to enjoy fulfilling careers as real estate agents and brokers.

 Then The Pandemic Hit

Like many other schools, colleges, and businesses, the classroom training at the Boston Realty Institute was suspended due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. This new normal required the Boston Realty Institute to pivot to online training and training on demand.

This pivot required a number of new certifications and requirements by the state to be able to deliver online and on-demand classes.

Now state-certified as a licensed school to teach online classes, Boston Realty Institute is now offering aspiring new brokers an opportunity to complete their pre-requisite forty-hour pre-licensing course online over four days

See What Our Students Have To Say

The course through Boston Realty Institute was extremely thorough and interesting. The instructor (Bah) does a great job covering an immense amount of material while keeping the group engaged. It’s an easy environment to ask questions and get further clarification on topics. Bah was also a great resource while studying for my exam- fully willing to re-explain content to me. Definitely would recommend!

Stephanie Shaw

Boston Realty Institute was very smooth to work with and provided me with all the tools I needed to pass the Broker’s Exam. I really enjoyed the smaller class size and more casual approach. The class was taught by a seasoned, professional broker with international and local experience. He was able to give real-life examples for all the material, thus making it easier to retain large amounts of information. If you learn better outside of the class room and want to get your salesperson or broker’s license in a more flexible way, I highly recommend B.R.I.

Pete Swan

Awesome school! Instructor Bah taught our class, and really knew his stuff: he efficiently covered all the material with the class while making sure that we all had an airtight understanding of the material. Bah comfortably handled any and all questions we asked, and brought the course content to life with lots of great real-world examples.

If you’re looking for a top-notch program with a immensely likable and knowledgeable instructor, I highly recommend BRI.
