Course Description

In general, a Probate occurs when a homeowner dies without a trust and by default leaves a home to an heir. This means (in many cases) that an estate attorney or representative may need to help family members sell the property. Of course, these scenarios can vary widely which is where this course becomes valuable.

Each of the 5 chapters in this course focuses on a specific probate-related topic. The material is presented from the real estate professional's point of view but with the experience and knowledge of seasoned probate attorney and State Bar Certified Specialist, Paul Horn.

As you progress through the course, you will discover why certain probate cases take longer (full authority vs. limited authority). This understanding will help you maximize your commission in a probate listing as well as guide you through the probate purchase process. 

Your Certificate:

After all requirements have been met (see below), students will be automatically awarded a certificate and logo for marketing purposes.  Once certified, students may add the certification logo to business cards, websites, email signatures, blogs, promotional materials, and more.


To earn your certificate you must complete the course and exam with a passing score.

All C.A.R. Education certifications expire 2 years from the date they were awarded and anyone who wishes to renew must retake the course.
