About CDL Real Estate Academy Instructors

Phil Cali

Founder, Phil Cali, has had his real estate license since 1989. His CE instructors license since 1992 and Pre-license instructors license since 1994. He has done both residential sales and commercial. He is well versed in real estate contract law and the Illinois real estate license law. He has taught hundreds of students who are still clients today. They know if they have any questions regarding the real estate rules that I will have the answer or call the state and find out the answer.

“I am a hand’s on instructor. I make myself available 7 days a week. I have put in the extra time to any student that is dedicated in receiving their real estate license. I also help current real estate offices when they get audited by the state. I will go into an office and I know exactly what the state is looking for. When the state investigator comes in they are in and out pretty quickly. I find the problems before the state does. The one thing that separates me from most instructors is I CARE.”
