12 Steps to Getting your Texas Real Estate License


Praise the Lord!  I have now passed both portions of the Texas Real Estate Exam.  I plan to take a little time off to judge livestock shows before starting the interview process with Brokers. Thanks to Purvis Real Estate School, it’s staff and instructors for helping me achieve this goal. Owen G, Fort Worth, Texas

Leslie, Thanks again for the class. Making the decision to sell real estate has been the best choice I’ve made, and I can’t imagine doing anything else. I’ve taken all of my classes there, and I appreciate you putting up with me. The classes are always interesting. I always know that I can email you for help if I need to. That goes both ways. Ricky, Stephenville, Texas


Hey Leslie,
Took my test last Wednesday just a little under a week after taking your class. And truth is I didn't study at all in between your class and test until the day before. I came into work and took the free practice exam on my lunch. I failed it and went home and studied till 230 in the morning. Ended up making an 80 on both tests.
Thank you so much! I couldn't have done it without the prep course. My real estate classes did go over everything we went over in class but so much more as well. The only way I could have passed the test without the Mega Prep was if I had taken 6 months of hardcore studying while I was taking my core classes instead of the month it took me using your PREP guide.
Thank you!

Hi Leslie,

I’m dropping a note to let you know that I took my test this afternoon and did very well. I scored 90% on the State Specific portion of the exam and 88% on the National section of the exam. This was my first time to take the test. For the past 2 weeks (since my Mega PREP class), I studied from 4 to 8 hrs per day, every day. I’m glad it is over, I took my test in the afternoon and I believe it helped by giving me several hours in the morning to review the more difficult chapters. My sincere thanks to you - Your school and classes are the best!! James St****, Fort Worth, Texas

I just wanted to take time to thank you from the bottom of my heart on helping me to succeed with passing the salesperson exam on the FIRST TRY!!! Yay!!! I don't know if you remember me or not, but I was in the MegaPrep class on Tuesday and I briefly spoke with you in panic because I had scheduled my exam for the very next day! You told me I could do it and to just read the guide and not so much worry about going through all 1500 practice questions and thats what I did! For 11 hours immediately proceeding your prep course I studied/crammed. I was able to read the entire guide again and there wasn't a single word on the exam that I wasn't familiar with. I scored a 21 on the state portion and a 65 on the national portion!! THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!

Leslie, You asked us at the end of the prep course to let you know when we passed the test, and I am happy to tell you that I did! I took it on Monday and passed . . . am very grateful for the help you gave during and after the prep course. I’m so glad I took it and doubt I could have passed the exam without it! Thanks again.

Thank you, Leslie.  How are you?  I brag on Purvis RE Institute quite a bit.  (I hope some others have found their way there because of me telling them of my experience there.)  It was the BEST place for me to begin - it gave me a really good foundation.  Plus, I will forever be grateful for your Test Prep Class.  I took all you said to heart and studied the way you told us to; and I credit your tutelage as key elements in helping me pass the exam the first time. 

My new real estate broker, Century 21 Mike Bowman, and his team are a great fit for me and I feel blessed to be here.  They welcomed me as part of their family from the first day I visited.  My time with my original real estate firm was so valuable and it was where I needed to be while I was there.  Being there helped me find my way to C21MB. Ultimately, I know it is God guiding my every step. 

Thank you for reaching out, Leslie.  I have thought of you often.  I appreciate you.  If I can serve you in any way, please let me know.


Hello Leslie, I just wanted to tell you I really enjoyed your class, again.  Last month I took the ***** 2 day prep exam, what a waste of time and money!  Thank God you are still doing what you do! Jan P. Arlington, TX
