NANUET, N.Y. -- The Rand Real Estate Academy announced it has opened at 200 Grand Ave. in Hawthorne with approved satellite locations in Bergen County.

“At our academy, we want to provide a basic knowledge of real estate and the tools students will need in order to pass the New Jersey licensing exam,” said Jeffrey Halpern, Director of the Rand Real Estate Academy. “This academy is more than just passing a test. For us, we want to make sure the academy prepares its students with the drive to go out into the real estate industry and find the success we know they’re capable of.”

The academy is a pre-licensing school for New Jersey students looking to obtain their New Jersey Real Estate Salesperson license. The academy teaches a 75-hour pre-licensing course that’s required by the state in order for a student to qualify to take the state exam. It is also certified to teach classes in continuing education for New Jersey real estate, which are required for agents in order to renew their licenses every two years. The classes are offered by four instructors: Joseph Rand, managing director; Jeffrey Halpern; and Frank DiCocco and Roberta Bangs, certified New Jersey real estate instructors.

Students who plan on taking the course have the option to either attend the class five days a week for three weeks; or, if they are looking to have a dual career, they can attend evening classes twice a week for 10 weeks. The class schedule can be found by clicking on the link. The price is $349.00 with the textbook, but a $100.00 discount will be offered to those who register on the site. If you are interested in attending the academy, call (973)427-8650, or e-mail at

“The Rand Real Estate Academy will be fundamental in the achievements of our students,” said Halpern. “Upon completing the course, they will be ready to go out and provide their clients with the proper and well-educated guidance they deserve.”

Founded by Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty, the Rand Real Estate Academy works to impart onto prospective agents the necessary education that will assist them in obtaining success and business in the real estate industry. With the goal of being the leading provider in real estate education, the academy begins with teaching its students the class that helps them pass the New Jersey licensing test, and then continues with its unique Client-Oriented Real Estate (CORE) philosophy, which was developed by managing director Joseph Rand.

By using certified instructors and modern systems and tools, the Rand Real Estate Academy provides the foundation on which potential agents will build their accomplished careers. To learn more, visit . To register for classes, call (973)427-8650, or e-mail at You can also follow them on Facebook .
