Real estate is a dynamic field in which highly motivated men and women can and do create their own success stories. The degree program in real estate is designed with flexibility to allow students to successfully achieve a goal, whether it be personal knowledge, receipt of a degree, completion of a certificate program, transfer to a college or university or real estate licensure.

Students will explore a variety of topics including fundamentals and principles of real estate; sources of financing; state and federal influences on financing; legal rights of owners, buyers and brokers; property appraisal; contract negotiations; and closing. An excellent instructional staff and a cooperative education program with local brokers give real estate students at Collin a personalized, practical, high quality educational experience.

Students planning to transfer to a college or university should check with the Collin academic advisor prior to beginning this program to verify course transferability.
