Comprehensive Real Estate Seminar CRES – February 2011

    hi im undergrad,but ive been in real estate for more than 7years… how would i know the units i earned?

    [From the Admin] You need to get a Certification that is acceptable to the PRC. Thanks!

    Please let me know if there are other reviews scheduled aside from the Feb 18 one. I can join review in Makati or Ortigas Center.
    Is 60 hours enough? Heard from others that 120 hours is the required hours.

    [From the Admin] Some people have been talking about the 60 hours of CRESAR + 60 hours of OJT option. We haven’t, however, seen any official announcement from the PRC regarding the breakdown of the required 120 units in real estate subjects. Thanks!

    Were actually looking forward for the appraiser’s examination.Can you give us invitation for the review classes if there is appraiser’s review this coming 2011.

    [From the Admin] Hi! As soon as we get more info about review class service providers for Real Estate Appraisers, we will post it online so that you may directly get in touch with them. Thanks!
  10. on 08 Feb 2011 at 8:50 am janro

    can you give us invitation for the review class for this february so that we can attend on official business considering that we are government employees. We are from Provincial Assessor’s Office of Biliran.

    [From the Admin] Hi! From what we gathered, the February 2011 CRES is fully booked, and is no longer accepting additional enrollees.

    hi i did not able to finish my bachelor of business administration i 6 more units but their is a changes in curriculum i got other college degree as Bachelor of Ministerial Studies a 4 years course in bible school right now I already work in real estate for four year can I take the seminar and be qualified for the exam on March 27,2011

    [From the Admin] Hi! If the CHED will recognize your diploma, then you have a chance of having the PRC accept your new degree. It will be more prudent, however, if you directly get in touch with the PRC regarding your bible school degree.

    If the PRC will accept your degree, please get a certification from your real estate company that you have completed 60 units of OJT in real estate brokerage. You will also need to earn 60 units in a Comprehensive Real Estate Seminar and Review (CRESAR).

    hello! any schedule please for property consultant/salesperson, i need 120 units to comply with the requirements needed in PRC exam on MAY 20011

    [From the Admin] Hi there… We haven’t heard any announcements yet regarding review sessions for the May 2011 Real Estate Consultants / Appraisers Exam. As soon as we get word, we will post it online. Thanks!

    [From the Admin] We heard that all the slots for the February 2011 CRES of Cesar Santos have been filled, and that they’re no longer accepting CRES enrollees at this point in time.

    Hi. Would like to know when Mr. Santos can have a review class for Cebu participants of the recent NREA Cebu seminar. We actually had him as one of the speakers. I understand he also conducts review classes before the examinations. May we know his sched for Cebu…I think my batchmates (first batch of NREA for this year’s examination) is interested.

    [From the Admin] We have forwarded your question to the people at the Cesar Santos Real Estate Academy, and we will update this comment as soon as we get their answer. Thanks!

    Ill just want to inquire where i can buy the reading materials for the review of the examination?


    [From the Admin] Thank you for asking! 🙂 When you enroll in the face-to-face Comprehensive Real Estate Seminar and Review (CRESAR), you will be given handouts and various reading materials.

    You may also visit local bookstores and get books on Philippine laws related to real estate (e.g., Taxation, National Internal Revenue Code).

    hi! recently i attended resa law seminar here in ortigas organize by our company. And mr cesar santos is the one conducting the seminar. it was said that its only 36hrs but i would love to attend review for preparation for the examination’s on march 27, 2011… it was said i need 24hrs to complete my 60hrs requirements… pwede po ba cia ma credit or i need to get cres again…?

    [From the Admin] Hello! Just to clarify, this website is not conducting any RESA Law Seminar.

    Now to answer your question: Since the RESA Law is part of the subjects that will be covered in the upcoming real estate brokers licensure examinations of the PRC, it is our opinion that your 36 hours will be credited.

    Please secure the Certificate of Completion/Attendance which certifies that kind of real estate subjects that you learned about, and the number of units earned.

    hi, i only have a high school diploma and I’ve never been to college.. can i go to a seminar like this? coz i wanna be a real state broker.

    [From the Admin] If you wish to become a Real Estate Broker, you need to have a college degree before you may take the real estate brokers exam. That requirement is listed in the RESA Law IRR.

    Hi. im a college student graduating this march, i was wondering if i can still take the exam? If yes can i have a few absences during the seminar cause i still have some classes to attend to. thanks

    [From the Admin] Hello… The Comprehensive Real Estate Seminar and Review (CRESAR) organizers will issue you a Certificate of Completion for the number of units that you attend.

    If you have a few absences during the seminar (e.g., 2 absences), your Certificate will not show the full 120 units. If you have not show the PRC proof that you have earned 120 units in real estate subjects, you will not be allowed to apply for the Real Estate Brokers Licensure Exam.

    We recommend that you focus first on your studies so you can graduate this March 2011.

    Since you’re interested in real estate, then we suggest that you partner with a real estate developer, broker or agent, gain experience, earn your 120 hours of real estate training, get accredited as a real estate salesperson, earn 120 units in real estate subjects, then apply for the REB Exam of 2012.

    [From the Admin] Depending on your objectives, you may need to attend a face-to-face real estate seminar, to comply with PRC requirements.

    On the other hand, if you need more info about the RESAR Online Review, please join the RESAR Online Review Announcement List. Thanks!

    [From the Admin] Hello! They’ve held seminars in Rm 2114 Cityland 10 Tower 1 (HV Dela Costa St, Makati), but for the February 2011 CRES they will use a larger venue either in Makati or the Ortigas area.

    To reserve your slot, you will need to make a bank deposit. The Registration Forms will be available on the first day of the seminar.

  22. on 20 Jan 2011 at 12:00 pm jason

    How much is the fee if 1 day only (10 hours)?For salesman units only.

    hello! May i know if this review on Feb. also applicable for the may real estate appraisal exam?

    [From the Admin] This CRES is for the March 27, 2011 Real Estate Brokers’ Licensure Exams.
