Broker Exam Prep Course

If you are a licensed Broker from another state, please contact me so I can give you specific information about what you need to get that license.  920-428-0146 or lstone513@gmail.com

In order to obtain a BROKER’s license in Wisconsin, an applicant must have a SALESPERSON’s license. Click here to read more info from the Department of Safety and Professional Services. (DSPS)

As of July 1, 2014, there has been a requirement to work for 2 years as a
salesperson before obtaining a broker’s license. 

Click here to read the requirements on page 4 on the license application.

Laurel Stone School of Real Estate offers a quality online BROKER program by partnering with the Wisconsin Realtors Association.

The course is completed by using the WRA's On Demand Course AND the materials I have created to supplement that course.  Because the program is entirely online, it includes printable reading materials. My system incorporates the 12 chapters of a Pre-Exam Review Book along with practice quizzes, a story problem, and a final practice exam.

NOTE: When completing the course online there is no 72-hour classroom requirement because your submission of the online quizzes is proof that you completed the course. 

You have 6 months to complete the course from the date you sign up.

Upon receiving your payment, I will process your registration for the course and contact you via text (to confirm your number) to set up a time to talk to get you started. During this conversation which may last from 45-60 minutes, I will walk you through how to:
  • schedule the exam with Pearson VUE
  • apply for your license with the Department of Safety and Professional Services (DSPS)
  • log in to the WRA online course for completion of the quizzes.
Additionally, you will be provided with detailed assistance to proceed efficiently through the course. It can be overwhelming without knowing the best way to approach the material so I’ve created a CHECKLIST that will simplify the study process and target the important concepts to learn to help you successfully pass the real estate exam.

About Laurel

Laurel Stone, owner of Laurel Stone School of Real Estate, teaches pre-license sales classes and offers online courses for pre-license sales and broker courses, Wisconsin’s mandatory continuing education and post license training courses.

First licensed in 1977, in addition to selling homes, she was active in various aspects of real estate, including attending Real Estate Exchange and Marketing Sessions in Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C., representing buyers of investment properties and managing property for those investors. During this time, she joined Toastmasters International which led to numerous public speaking engagements and ultimately was the catalyst that inspired her to begin her teaching career by instructing a property management course at Penn State University, York Campus. In addition, she served on community boards such as Historic York, actively participated in local politics and in 1979 was a participant of Leadership York, a program begun in 1978 designed to prepare men and women for volunteer leadership positions in York County.

From 1981 - 1984, she owned and operated her own real estate company specializing in property management and was a buyer’s agent for investors of small residential and commercial properties. Upon relocating to Wisconsin in 1984, she began teaching part time at Fox Valley Technical College along with working for a property management company and assisting an independent appraiser. Eventually, she returned to real estate sales and assisted in the management of a residential real estate office. Her association with Fox Valley Tech led to teaching pre-license sales and broker classes and also continuing education. In September of 1991, she taught the first of what was to be monthly, accelerated real estate sales classes and quarterly real estate broker classes.  In 2009, she began writing Wisconsin’s continuing education and pre-license courses for Continuing Ed Express, a national leader in providing real estate education online.  As an affiliate of Continuing Ed Express, Laurel can offer many advanced training courses for licensees and continuing education courses for licensees in other states.

On personal note, Laurel has two daughters, Candace and Sharon, both living in Pennsylvania. Candace has a son Kyle, and a daughter, Miranda. Sharon has a son, Zachary, and a daughter, Samantha.
