About Us

About Our Academy


Since 1984, the Harman Real Estate Academy has been committed to providing our students with the best possible pre-license education in the field of real estate. Thousands of students have graduated from our academy since we began. We offer a flexible, self-paced, self-study and lecture course that promises to thoroughly prepare our students to pass the state exam.


Our classes can be suited to fit almost any schedule. Live lectures are held every Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5:15pm to 7:20pm. Our office is open Monday through Friday, 9:00am to 5:00pm, for taking practice and final tests. Also, the classes are self-contained and may be taken in any order. This makes it even easier to tailor the course to your own schedule.


Classes at the Academy can be completed in as little as a month if all the classes are completed. You may also mix-and-match live classes with online classes, since the tuition includes both, or you may simply do the entire course online as the classes can be taken from anywhere in the world as long as you have an internet connection. For those who would rather move at a slower pace, our students have up to one year from registration to complete the course materials.


The cost of classes is extremely reasonable—only $475. This is an incredible value for a course that trains students for a completely new career. This amount not only covers the classes, but also includes our two text books. We accept Cash, Checks, Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express.

We are based in Orem Utah.
