About ARES-Why Choose Us?

Arkansas Real Estate School is a changing the face of real estate education in Arkansas.  We are a modern training organization conveniently located on North Rodney Parham Road in west Little Rock, Arkansas and considered the premier real estate school in Arkansas by most brokers and agents.

In 2010, Danny Been and Alison Chambers founded the school and developed the curriculum to provide you, as real estate licensees and candidates, the most current and practical tools you need to be successful in the real estate profession. Alison left the business in 2013 to pursue other interests; Danny continued to grow the business and formed a business partnership with Carolyn Patterson.  Arkansas Real Estate School rapidly emerged as the leading training academy in the state.  Upon the retirement of longtime educator Wayne Camp, Arkansas Real Estate School took over the reins of Camp Real Estate School in Mountain Home. This positioned us to continue Wayne’s tradition of bringing courses and instructors of the highest quality to north central Arkansas and southern Missouri.


Since ARES is the premier real estate school in the state of Arkansas, several highly successful brokerage firms come to our school during our pre-license classes to ask our students to come interview with them .  Many students find a brokerage to partner with during these brief presentations.  Arkansas Real Estate School is not only interested in preparing students for passing the test and being successful sales agents, but equal emphasis is placed on the student finding a great place to begin their career as a real estate professional.


The Little Rock location of Arkansas Real Estate School offers state-of-the-art classrooms for real estate education. We are committed to providing you with a clean, comfortable and convenient learning environment. Each seminar table is equipped with electrical outlets, allowing you to connect a laptop or tablet for classroom use. Free access to the internet via high speed wireless broadband connection is available. Our classroom is equipped with an LCD digital ceiling-mounted projector, providing visual and audio to highlight our interactive teaching style and giving you the best educational experience available in the state. Students have access to our tidy break room with snacks and beverages available. Restrooms are clean, sanitary, and well-stocked. For your health, hand wipes and hand sanitizer are available.
In Mountain Home, we continue the tradition of excellence Wayne Camp began by securing local venues that meet our high standards for an environment that is both highly conducive to learning and comfortable for our students.


Our classroom materials were developed by founder and principal instructor Danny Been, fully approved by the Arkansas Real Estate Commission to meet their stringent guidelines. Materials are dynamic and constantly reviewed to ensure you are being provided with the most current industry information. Materials are included in the tuition price for all of our classes.

To better meet the needs of a variety of potential students, we added Online Courses in the spring of 2016. After extensive research, we chose distance education partners whom we believe provide the best courses available in the state of Arkansas.
