March 2013 real estate brokers exam seminars and review centers


Update: 2013 Real Estate Brokers Exam Results Released By The PRC

Just about every successful real estate investor I know is already a licensed real estate broker, and they did this by taking and passing the real estate brokers exam.

If you want to be a real estate investor, why should you even bother attending a real estate seminar and take the exam?

As mentioned in my 7 tips to help you get started with real estate investing, attending a real estate seminar/review for aspiring real estate brokers is a great way to learn about the legal aspects of property ownership, real estate taxation, real estate laws in the Philippines, etc.

Although newbie real estate investors can attend a real estate seminar just for the knowledge, you might as well take the exam right?! I consider passing the exam and becoming a licensed real estate broker as icing on the cake!

Question is, where can you review for the real estate brokers exam?

With the March 2013 real estate brokers exam just around the corner, you’re in luck as several review centers have already started to offer their Comprehensive Real Estate Seminar and Reviews or CRESR’s, and I will compile them here just like what I did in the past.

By the way, attending a CRESR is just one of the many real estate broker exam requirements. You also need to be a college graduate to be eligible to take the real estate brokers exam on March 2013. Please keep this in mind before you register for any of the following real estate seminars.

March 2013 Real Estate Brokers Exam Seminars and review centers

1. Urban Institute of Real Estate – 120-Hour Comprehensive Real Estate Seminar plus 2 day Extensive Review.

Based on the announcement at their website, the seminar schedule has been revised to 120 Hours instead of 60 Hours as per PRC guidelines. The earliest schedule starts on October 23, 2012 November 16, 2012 so you still have time to register.

    Good afternoon Sir Jay. Is there any review class on REB Exam for 2013 in Legazpi City or nearby? Thanks a lot. God bless your family.

  • Jay Castillo

    Heads-up guys, I just updated the post with the final schedules for Urban Institute, earliest open section will start on November 16, 2012.

    I’m still waiting for CRESR’s from provincial areas to submit their schedules…

  • jersey corley

    Hi Jay,

    I am interested to get updates on schedules and fees for next batch of Review and or Seminar for Cebu.

    I only found out recently that review classes started about 5-6 weeks already and it’s too late for me to even think about enrolling now. Will instead wait for next batch.


  • Len

    Hi Sir Jay,

    I would like to ask if there is a Broker’s review that offers sunday sched only, coz i still do go to office every Saturday. Near Alabang or Makati area po sana. Thank you so much. Godbless.

  • Gregorio Elep

    Hi, Cecil…..about your question if there is a possibility of conducting a review on a once a week basis. I think it is possible but not advisable kasi ang mga reviewers tight ang mga schedule nila. Beside they would prefer na matapos agad ang kanilang commitment sa review center. Sa haba ng review baka abutin na ng exam date at hindi na kayo tanggapin ng PRC. They still need to prepare di ba?

  • cecil llander

    hi po,is there any sked for Broker’s review possibly once a week-para po sana sa mga employed tulad ko po…hope meron…

  • ulyn

    id like to inquire about becoming one of your online advertiser.Please furnish me info and rates if possible.Thanks Jay.I always look forward to receiving updates from you.More power as well!

    Any information about a CRESR (for 2013 R.E.B. Exam) in Naga City would be gratefully appreciated. Thanks in advance!

  • sheen

    Hi Jay,

    may i know where to find the complete list of requirements o i can take the exam?
    thanks alot.

  • Ann

    Hi Jay. I was just wondering if you have managed to get info on the second batch of review. Also, do you happen to know if there are more intense sessions e. g. 10-hours x 12 sessions instead of attending 24 sessions? I am currently out of the country and could only spare 2 months to attend the review and take the exam. Thank you.

    • Jay Castillo

      Hi Ann, no info at the moment, as per website of Urban Institute, they are updating their schedules. Based on past years’, schedules with more hours per session should be available by 2013 and would fit 2 months.

  • jong camacho

    sir,do you conduct seminars here in davao city? pls inform me if you have one..Thanks.

    Hi Jay,

    I have just renewed my interest in real estate and passed
    the realtor’s board exam in the past. However, my sources
    say I ought to retake the exam again. Pls advise. Thanks!

  • Omar

    Hi sir Jay! Meron pa kayang 2nd batch na mago-open sa Urban Institute of Real Estate? Yung ngayon is too soon, may mga commitments pa kasi ako. I’m really not prepared. Hopefully meron pa, I’ll keep checking back dito sa inyo.

    Also is there only 1 licensure for broker’s in a year? & It’s always March? Sayang naman..

    • Jay Castillo

      Hi Omar, yes, I believe there will be a second batch. Will post this when the schedule becomes available.

      • joy mamon

        meron na ba 2nd batch of schedule for iloilo brokers review?

    • Jay Castillo

      Hi Myrna, yes, usually merong second batch. Will update this post once they announce a definite schedule.

  • Regina Tribaco

    Hello Sir:

    Do you know any schedule of seminar in Bacolod. I’ve been planning to take the exam but don’t know any venue or group which conducts seminars here in our city.


  • kris

    Good day, Sir Jay Im an OFW is there an online seminar? Im interested in becoming real state broker.

    • Jay Castillo

      Hi Kris, there is an online review I know but I don’t think the PRC can accept online seminars/reviews at the moment as an acceptable requirement for the brokers exam, you still need to attend a face-to-face seminar for 120 hours. However, I do believe that an online seminar/review is still very useful for those who want to do better in the exam, even my wife enrolled in an online review (she landed at 4th place in the March 2011 real estate brokers exam). :-)


  • Gregorio Elep

    Emma or Ginie

    • Jay Castillo

      Thanks Greg, will add this on the list asap!

    • Jay Castillo

      Hi Greg, is this for 60 units only? Based on info from Urban Institute and CES, the PRC has issued guidelines that they (the PRC) now requires 120-units, although I have not seen any formal announcement from the PRC. Please advice, thanks.

      • Gregorio Elep

        As per my understanding and experience, reviewers who took the said CPE are already qualified to take the exams….it is better than no CPE at all. The Govt. is more interested in qualifying more licensed brokers than keeping up with “hao shaos” where the government is not earning anything.

  • carla e sollesta

    Im presently employed and residing here in Iloilo City. Is there any review center here in Iloilo City and offers review on weekends or after office hours.


    • Jay Castillo
