About Us

About Leap EDU

Now more than ever, real estate brokerages need professionals with cutting-edge knowledge and in-depth education about a wide range of critical issues. But real estate schools have remained stuck in the past, with outmoded models that make it difficult for today’s students to access the courses they need with their fast-moving, tech-connected lifestyles.

Leap EDU has reinvented real estate education – taking advantage of today’s advanced online tools and technology and a diverse and innovative curriculum to create the industry’s first high-tech 21st Century real estate university.

Here are some of the ways our programs stand out from the pack:

Classes that meet your busy schedule

Choose either a morning or evening schedule depending on the month that it’s offered. Depending on the payment package you choose, you can complete as little as 20 business days or up to one calendar from the day you attended your first session.

A full array of the most sought-after courses

Leap EDU is the only non-association in New York State approved to offer the wide range of prestigious designations and certifications offered by the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR). We also offer our exclusive Green EDU Solar Specialist Designation, which trains students on the ins and outs of buying and selling homes with solar systems.

Learn with the power of technology

We're built for today's hyper-connected world, with a proprietary app for easy online course registration and progress tracking, available ebooks for our courses, and digital exams.

Career guidance and job placement

We support our students' long-term success with comprehensive career guidance and job placement services. We work with top brokerages throughout New York State and can help you find a place to work that fits your skills and preferences.

Charles Greco

Home Island South until selling to Signature Premier Properties in May of 2018.

Over my career I have instructed and facilitated training sessions for the 75-hour NYS licensing course. Behavioral Event Interviewing, Diversity and Sexual Harassment workshops.

I consider success to be more than earning a commission;

  • As I’ve had had buyers decide to buy out of New York State that later have called me to help sell a family members home that equals success.
  • I have had agents outside of my area ask me to assist them with their buyers, that equals success.
  • I have had potential sellers end up selling to a family member and receiving compensation just because, that equals success.
  • I’ve had many clients refer new clients, that equals success.
I take this profession seriously and have continued my education to enhance my abilities to serve.


E-Pro: The e-PRO® certification program is designed to teach real estate professionals the technology skills they need to serve today’s increasingly connected consumers.

CBR: Certified Buyers Representative: The NEGOTIATING and MARKETING techniques taught in the CBR program are what many agents feel sets the CBR trained agent a step ahead of their competition. The competent CBR agent gives their clients’ the confidence that they have purchased the home or real estate of their choice on the best terms available and at the best price possible.
