I trying to take some summer courses because my GRE quant scores are low right now. What would be great courses to take to prove my quant chops? I was thinking of taking UCLA extension real estate courses, NYU continuing Education CFP courses, or UC Berkeley continuing ed Finance course.

Stats, calc, accounting, microecon, finance... I'm not sure of the value of real estate courses in demonstrating your quant skills.

If you need to beef up your quant side/build alternative transcript, you may wish to take some key courses:
Calculus, accounting and economics, maybe decision analysis/stats. Adcomms look favourably at these courses. You can do it at your local college or some distance learning programmes.

I spoke to some non-traditional students or liberal art majors and they confirmed.

I suggest, especially if your ugrad gpa is already high enough, to spend time to prepare for GRE/GMAT and to retake since the value of an alt transcript would to offset a low GPA. If your GPA is already decent I think your time is far more valuable upping the quantitative score on the test than taking statistics or calculus.
