"We are excited by the opportunity to join forces with the Arizona Academy," said Kevin McClure, president, ASREB. "We believe that by combining schools, we can better serve the consistent growth in the Arizona real estate industry and provide more value for those who are a part of it."
The reimagined institution sets out to achieve a new, higher standard of real estate education in the state. The strategic foundation of the partnership is the fact that together, these Arizona real estate education institutions will provide additional resources to professionals and students alike.
"At AARE, our goal has always been to help build a solid foundation for our industry through quality education," said Debra Prevost, president, AARE. "I'm excited that this partnership with ASREB will help us do that even better and I look forward to what the future holds." Prevost will continue to serve the school in an advisory capacity.
The combined institution will offer students and professionals the benefit of a wider access to leading real estate education programs, industry experts and tools that are designed to stay a step ahead of an ever-changing real estate market. In addition, the schools will also benefit from the transition of the AARE career partner program, which gives students expanded visibility to agencies who are actively recruiting new agents. Ms. Prevost will be a consultant in this transition.
"We have been watching the Arizona Academy of Real Estate with keen interest since we purchased ASREB in 2013," said John Hondros, chief executive officer, Hondros Education Group. "The Arizona real estate market is booming and the Phoenix metro is forecast to be the number one housing market in the U.S. Combining these two great schools will allow us to meet the increasing demand for well-trained real estate professionals."
AARE has been supporting students in the real estate and lending industries since 2005, in Peoria, Scottsdale, Phoenix and Mesa locations.
