Champions School of Real Estate
"My mother started her real estate career in Plano as a broker. When we moved to Houston in the early 1980's, she realized there really was no place for Realtors to go for quality training in real estate," shares Kim Dydalewicz, Vice President of Sales and Marketing and Campus Manager for the San Antonio Division of Champions School of Real Estate. "In 1983, she opened Champions School of Real Estate and did EVERYTHING herself! She registered students, designed courses and taught the students. She was amazing." Twenty-five years later, Champions School has campuses in San Antonio, Dallas and Houston and trains over 50,000 students per year.
"We are certainly proud to have served the Texas real estate community for the past 25 years and to show our appreciation, we have rolled back our MCE (Mandatory Continuing Education) prices to our 1983 rates," continues Dydalewicz. The company website at www.championsschool.com provides all the course information offered at each campus. The San Antonio campus is located at 10000 San Pedro, Suite 100. Champions School offers core courses in State Licensing for real estate professionals, mortgage lending, appraisals and inspectors. Continuing education is offered in all subjects as well.
The success of Champions School lies in the dedication of its founder, Rita Santamaria. With her love of real estate and a Master's Degree in Education from Florida State, Santamaria understood the intricate process of developing a curriculum for those desiring to enter a new profession and meet the needs of those who are required to maintain a license through the state. Her dedication and hard work has been recognized over the years with countless awards. Most recently, Sanatmaria was honored as the Texas Business Woman of the Year for WCR of Texas 2007 and she was inducted into the National Association of Realtors Hall of Fame in 2003.
"Champions offers a 'family' feel to their students and that is because it is still a family owned and operated business-even after 25 years. We have monthly management meetings to discuss what our students need and how we can keep our campuses inviting. Our campuses are finished out in a very warm and homey atmosphere. We make our campuses a showplace and treat our student like the professionals they are everyday. Aesthetics are extremely important and we want to create an inviting learning atmosphere." notes Dydalewicz.
"I opened Champions School in 1983 to bring the 'total learning experience' to new licensees. The total experience means, current information on what is happening in real estate today, qualified instructors who love to teach, and a learning environment that says 'Welcome and thank you for choosing our school.' Our goal is to help you achieve excellence through our quality education," shares Santamaria, President of the company. Students can choose from live classes, correspondence or online for real estate, loan officer, mortgage brokerage, appraiser and inspector professionals. Classes are offered seven days a week with day, evening and weekend schedules available.
