Student Testimonials

I couldn’t be prouder to tell the world how happy I am and how I owe it to Hondros College for creating such an outstanding online program. I took the Crammer and passed my state and national exams!

Melissa Leurck
Hoeting Realtors

I took my classes completely online and by attending the Crammer, there were a lot of “a-ha!” moments that you can’t get online. With the online classes, they were effective and I was able to do it from work while accomplishing other duties.

Mark Langdon
Schueler Group

I took the Crammer class today and it was very helpful for me since I was an online student. To be able to be in a class and hear the discussions of other people and the instructor was helpful.

Lora Wallace
Stouffer Realty, Inc.

I am loving the online real estate salesperson course so far! It has a good pace, and I enjoy the videos and knowledge checks. Well done!

Katie Davis
Coldwell Banker

They provide the same information online I need with explanations through examples in videos (which is my favorite part) from an amazing instructor I met in one of my first classes.

Alainah Dean
Keller Williams

These online courses are made to flow so seamlessly and before you know it the module is over. You complete the knowledge checks and it makes you feel so confident when taking the quizzes.

Quiana Baskin
FASS Real Estate Services

Online classes allowed me to go at my own pace, and to spend time reading and comprehending the information before moving on. CompuCram was also extremely helpful! I felt very prepared for the exam.

Erika Bussard
Sibcy Cline

The convenient, self-learning aspect of the program made this possible to fit into my busy schedule. The program allowed me to study every night when I got home from work. Every member of your staff made me feel like I was the only person that they needed to please. All I can say is that I would absolutely recommend your program, and I can’t say enough about your staff and how this program has helped me.

Heather Rich

I wanted to share my experience in regards to my Finance class with Mr. Tom Damen.  I was so nervous going into this class because I am not a math person whatsoever.  Growing up, I always struggled with understanding math.  Tom knew this because I disclosed it to him.  By the end of the first few hours of class, I was able to understand the finance class! I loved the fact that he brought real-world situations to our attention instead of what was just listed in the book.  Tom is a wonderful instructor and person.  Thank you Hondros for choosing him to teach this class!
