Prudential Americana Group now offering its real estate pre-licensing course free to Las Vegas unemployed.

Las Vegas, NV, February 12, 2011 --( One Southern Nevada real estate company is taking unemployment into its own hands. Prudential Americana Group, one of the state’s oldest and largest real estate companies, is taking action to help unemployed citizens by offering professional education free to those who are unemployed.

“Everyone knows that Nevada has the highest unemployment rate in the country at more than 14 percent,” said Mark Stark, Prudential’s CEO. “For those who are motivated to start a new career, we wanted to provide an option.” Prudential Americana Group’s popular pre-licensing course provides 80 hours of real estate education over five weeks to help participants prepare for the Nevada Real Estate License exam. Normally $399.00, the course is now offered free to qualified applicants who have been unemployed 24 months or less.

“This is an opportunity to take control of your career and get your real estate license,” said Stark. “Students from this course have a high track record of success in the real estate business and we want to help anyone who is committed to starting a new career.”

Classes are held weekday evenings at Prudential’s corporate headquarters at 2140 E. Pebble Road, Suite 160. Registration is available online at or via phone by calling Michelle Casolari at 702-796-7777.

“When we saw that companies like Ford Motor Credit were closing their offices, we knew we needed to take action,” said Stark. “This is an opportunity to learn a new skill and find out what it really takes to be a Realtor in Southern Nevada.”

“We also wanted current real estate sales executives to have an opportunity to increase their business,” said Stark. “Prudential’s new RE-Start program is currently being offered at no charge to licensed Nevada Realtors.” RE-Start, a high intensity training program for experienced Realtors, includes topics such as increasing listings, new tools & techniques for real estate marketing, internet marketing, growing a real estate business and creating a business plan.
