An old Japanese Proverb says it all: “Better than a thousand days of diligent study is one day with a great teacher.”
Real Smart President, Sandy Brown, created a unique system of learning the math and law components of the UBC course materials. Now, students sit back and say “So that is what the UBC material was trying to say”. We are proud of our industry reputation for delivering innovative and interactive courses. Of all of the learning styles available with Real Smart, our Online Interactive Courses have created a lot of positive buzz. Imagine testing your knowledge with one of our quizzes and getting an immediate recap of what went wrong and the solution!
All our courses are learner focused with instructor support 7 days a week. We have written the UBC Exam many times ourselves and we understand the challenge ahead of you. We know what you need to learn, tricky questions to watch for, and how to best prepare yourself to pass.

Meet Our Instructors
Sandy decided to open a real estate training centre and totally turn these courses upside down. She achieved this and revolutionized the real estate training business.
She achieved her goal by creating the original programs taking the challenging UBC Real Estate and Mortgage Broker courses and completely re-designing them to a simple and easy to understand format making it more accessible to everyone.
She wanted to create courses for the people that have been out of school for many years, to make a complex course simple. She is very proud of the Math system that was designed specially for those that math is not their best subject or fear it. She guarantees it will be fun and easier than trying to decipher the UBC book!
We are also striving to bring our learners more creative and innovative ways to help learn these courses easier and faster, with our full support 7 days a week.
Wendy started in the industry in real estate sales and then became the Director of Training for Homelife Realty Training Academy for Western Canada.
Wendy has been teaching one the Surrey Evening Classes for over 7 years now and everyone loves her classes. She has the experience and the industry knowledge, but best of all, Wendy has a natural teaching ability that has the right combination of compassion and insight allowing her students to get the very best from her classes.
Kenny has a Master Degree in Education from SFU and is now completing another Masters Degree. Kenny is married with 3 young boys and is involved in soccer & hockey. He is part of a steel drum band that is world famous.
Get ready to laugh! Most of his jokes are funny (sorry Kenny). Kenny is absolutely, positively a natural teacher. He has a mannerism that draws you in and makes you want to listen and learn. His teaching style is very interactive and entertaining as well.
Although he has a great sense of humour, don’t be fooled. He assigns homework and checks it! His number one priority is making sure his students do the work, understand the work, ask questions, seek help and pass the exam. Real Smart’s hope is that Kenny will always make time to teach for us when he moves up the corporate ladder of the Education field.
Michele knows firsthand what it is like to go through the UBC Real Estate Course. She took the Real Smart Course, passed, and loved it so much she became one of our Instructors! She is one of the friendliest and most helpful people you will ever meet. She has a smile for everyone, but she knows how to whip a class into shape at the same time.
Michele is a very successful licensed realtor, so she can definitely provide you with a great insight into the profession. She will share with you her current knowledge on how to work smart through the course and how to pass the exam.
Real Smart is incredibly lucky to have such a wonderful, gifted caring woman instructing this course.
Real Smart is very honoured to have Jas as one of our instructors. She is brilliant, funny and keeps the class coming back for more!
Along with Jas’s degree, she has a natural teaching ability that is rare to find. She has the innate ability to connect with her students and turn the UBC material that is quite daunting, into a simplistic and easy way to learn experience.
Jas is a mother and brings that caring nature to work. She also and owner & sells Real Estate so she can keep you up to date.
Jas instructs Real Smart Day classes in Surrey and Vancouver Evening classes as well as tutors.
Carrie also came through the Real Smart Course. She decided that she loved and believed in the course and staff so much, she had to be a part of it…her eagerness to learn and share that with her students is evident.
Carrie also sells Real Estate in the Chilliwack area and teaches an evening class in Chilliwack on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
I have never seen Carrie without a warm and compassionate thing to say. She is funny, friendly and very approachable…that’s why Real Smart hired her.
Her students love coming to class to hear her explain things in simple terminology while at the same time, listenening to great industry examples. She is always looking for something new to show her class.
Real Smart is proud to have Carrie as our Chilliwack instructor.
Adele is our latest addition to Real Smart. Adele loves Real Estate and is a licensed Realtor working in the Vancouver area.
She is a mother with a gentle caring nature and absolutely loves working with people. Adele works with Real Smart in many of our classes as a Math Assistant.
