In any event...you will not find a program that is more...
than this Home Study Program.
Don’t just take our word for it, click HERE to read what some recent students are saying about our programs.
A word of caution.
Do not purchase any program for your Oregon Property Manager License unless it meets the following 7 criteria:
If you have searched the Internet to find what you need for your Oregon property manager license you are probably confused! You will find dozens of web sites offering exam prep products costing less than $100 that guarantee you will pass the Oregon exam...to programs costing more than $1000 that don’t.
Here are 7 criteria that will ensure that you invest in a program that meets your needs and expectations:
1. First of all, you need to be aware that specific courses are mandated for a property manager license in Oregon. You will not be able to obtain an Oregon Property Manager License until you have completed those specific courses.
While you are permitted to take the license exam before you finish the courses (even before you start the courses, if you are so inclined), passing the exam does not eliminate the requirement to complete the required 60 hours of courses.
Some internet sites offer "exam preparation" products implying (either directly or by omission) that you can get your Oregon property manager license simply by passing the license examination (using their product, of course).....that is not true!
The 60 hour Oregon Real Estate Agency course is required, even if you have previously held a real estate or property manager license in Oregon or any other state.
It is true that the Oregon Real Estate Agency may waive a portion of the education and exam requirements based upon prior education and experience. So, if you have been previously licensed, you should contact the Oregon Real Estate Agency to determine exactly what requirements must be met for your Oregon license before you begin your studies.
2. Purchase only courses that have been approved by the Oregon Real Estate Agency and certified by ARELLO (the Association of Real Estate License Law Officials).
It is no surprise that the mandated courses must be approved by the Oregon Real Estate Agency.
ARELLO (of which the Oregon Real Estate Agency is a member) has developed rigorous standards for distance learning courses and the providers of those courses.
Our Property manager course has met these rigid standards and has been approved by the Oregon Real Estate Agency. Thus, you are assured the course and the administration of the course meets these high standards.
There is a recent trend among other states to permit distance learning for property manager pre-license education. This has created an opportunity for companies already having a property manager course for their own state to adapt their courses to make them more generic and begin offering them as online courses in other states. By doing this, they avoid the considerable expense of establishing an educational facility and staff in each state.
There is one minor problem with this trend...
While there can be a lot of similarities in the basics of property manager laws and practices across some states, there are a number of significant differences!
Property manager language in Massachusetts, for example, is vastly different than the language used in Oregon. A word that is in common use in one state may not be used in another. Any two states could be using a different term to describe the same principle. You want to be sure you are using material that is specific to
Oregon's laws and regulations.
Ask the course seller if the course was developed specifically for the Oregon Property Manager License...or was it adapted from another course. If the course was not initially created for Oregon, what was the origin of the course and was the adaptation done by someone with extensive actual experience in Oregon property manager laws, regulations and practice and if the course is ARELLO approved for distance learning in Oregon.
If you have a question whether a real estate program is approved for Oregon, the Oregon Real Estate Agency maintains a list of approved courses and providers.
Superior Schools has been a licensed private career school in Oregon since 1978. The courses are certified by ARELLO and are approved by the Oregon Real Estate Agency. You are assured that the completion certificates we issue will be accepted for your Oregon Property manager exam.
3. What is not obvious to the consumer is that schools (providers) selling courses to students for their Oregon Property Manager License also must be licensed by the Oregon Department of Education. To become licensed, schools must be located in Oregon.
4. The courses you purchase should be part of a total package including a guided program for preparing for your State licensing exam (exam prep) and professional coaching and support that continues after you have completed the courses and are preparing for the State license exam.
A formal exam preparation program is not part of the State's licensing requirements...the Real Estate Agency will only require that the courses be completed and that you pass the licensing exam.
However, you will want some sort of additional exam preparation program (with continued support and coaching) to guide you through your final review for the State exam. You shouldn't have to face the rather daunting task of preparing for the actual exam without materials developed for that purpose and professional guidance and support.
The school providing your courses should have practice exams that are specifically tailored for the Oregon Real Property Manager’s license examination ...and...a recommended procedure for exam preparation.
If the school you purchase your courses from charges an additional fee for exam prep, be sure you are aware of those costs before you make your decision about which program to purchase.
Our property manager license program includes our comprehensive Exam Prep program, complete with our coaching and support at NO EXTRA COST!
5. Practice exams in the courses, and those in your exam preparation, must reflect Oregon's unique real estate laws and regulations.
Avoid generic practice exams like the plague! As mentioned before (in recommendation #2), every state's laws and regulations are different. With generic practice questions, you will be confronted and confused with different terminology, unfamiliar structure of the questions, and questions (or answers) that may actually be contrary to Oregon's laws and regulations.
Can you imagine how confusing (and potentially damaging) those generic questions might be to you? It would seem as if those questions were written in another language...and, in effect, they are ...another state's real estate language!
In this regard, be especially wary of exam prep materials offered by some companies that advertise practice exams for an Oregon property manager license. Most of these inexpensive exam prep products promise that you will pass the state exam or you can get your money back. Big deal.....they are not risking as much as you are!
These inexpensive programs rely heavily on generic questions. That is the only way they are able to mass-produce practice exams for every state in the union. With some questions, they have merely substituted "Oregon" for another state. As a result, the answers to some questions actually contradict Oregon's current property manager laws and regulations.
All of the questions in our property manager program are specific to Oregon's language, regulations and practices. They are all structured to Oregon's exam questions and format...and many are taken directly from the Oregon Real Estate Agency's published database of questions as well as from current and recent actual exams.
6. Make certain that professional coaching and support are readily available throughout your studies and preparation for the State license exam.
Some questions for you to think about: Will you be able to get help when you need it? What kind of help is available? How do you go about getting help? Do you have to go somewhere specific to get help and will that be convenient for you? Will it be necessary to make an appointment? How long will help and support be available? ...only during classes? ...throughout your review and preparations for the State license exam and also after you have finished the courses?
Hopefully, there are no extra costs for this level of support from the schools you are considering. If, however, there are additional costs, such as a separate fee for a special "exam prep seminar", determine what those costs will be and factor them into your budget when evaluating which program to invest in.
Our FREE coaching and support is available in person... by phone...by e-Mail...or by FAX at no extra cost. AND, this FREE coaching is available for the asking until you walk into your new office!
7. We have found that most students complete their course in about 1 to 2 months. Others need longer due to the demands of work, family, accident, illness, or other obligations and situations. Be sure that any program you purchase will allow you plenty of time to study without being pressured. Passing your property manager exam requires a thorough understanding of property management practices and should not be rushed. Some courses only allow the student a few months to complete their material. We feel that giving the student a full year removes any time limit concerns and we are always willing to offer extensions.

You will appreciate the detailed step-by-step instructions to lead you through the courses and final preparation for your State Exam.

Included in your program is or Exam Prep with each chapter, containing practice questions for your review and preparation for the State exam. (See the next item for more information about this valuable tool.)
2: Comprehensive Exam Preparation Program
As you complete each chapter of the property manager course you will find a exam prep in the form of a chapter quiz that will help focus your review and preparation to pass the State license exam. These practice exams greatly enhance pass rates. They also save time (and stress!) by keeping you focused on subjects appearing in the state exam and quickly identifying topics that might need additional study.

You can call or email with any questions you have...as often as you need. If you located near one of our schools in Eugene ore Bend you can come in for face-to-face help. One of our students from Hawaii came to Bend several days before taking her license exam for some last- minute tips (you can see Molly Hogan's comments on our testimonials page).
However, even if you are in Hawaii, Alaska, Arizona or anywhere in the world, personal attention and help is as close as the phone, email or FAX.
We'll coach you through the entire process... every step of the way through the courses and your preparations for the state exam. We stay with you until you pass the state exam and have your license.
We will even coach you during your search for your property manager office, if you desire. We don't provide a "placement service," nor do we make any recommendations for a specific office.
