Testimonials

This was an excellent experience overall. I wish I had taken all of my post-licensing classes with Carolina School of Real Estate. Tricia was an awesome instructor. Her knowledge base for the course material is virtually unparalleled, and she kept the class lively with her great sense of humor. Lane deserves a lot of credit as well. Everything for check-in was orderly, and her email communications notifying the class of changes, and providing us with materials, were always timely and thorough. The snacks and drinks were also a much-appreciated bonus. Providing those types of things is a fairly simple gesture that go a long way towards making the students feel that they are not just names on a roster.

I really enjoyed this class. Trisha is very knowledgeable and succinct. She is also very personable and gracious. There was no inquiry she did not make time to clarify.

  - Post-Licensing Student (08/2019)

I wanted to take a quick minute and share my appreciation for how pleasant the class was, even for back-to-back weekends. Tricia was FABULOUS!!!!! She did a great job of making complicated topics very simple for most everyone to easily understand. This is NOT an easy feat as you know. Her underlying knowledge, skills, abilities and experience would be quite intimidating if not for her very down to earth and sweet personality. Tricia is a great communicator and all around great individual. I’m extremely thankful to have learned under her direction and look forward to learning more from her in the future.
This was my first experience at the Carolina School of Real Estate as a whole, and I’m very pleased. Looking forward to completing 301 in September.

Patricia Moylan has great presence- kept class attention entire time Incredibly knowledgeable instructor. I enjoyed her anecdotes and her thought provoking questions. She also had a gift for encouraging the entire class to participate including me- who normally sits quietly and zones out after sitting still too long.

  - Post-Licensing Student (07/2019)

This was my last post-licensing course. I took two of my post-licensing courses with Aneka and if more post-licensing were required I would continue to take every class that Aneka instructs. Aneka is a great teacher and a great thinker. She was patient with all of the students the entire course and really has a talent understanding different student's questions and answers on the course material.

Well Nancy Legg is an expert of real estate. She seems to have a high bar for ethics and really stressed to the class the do’s and don’ts. Stay out of real estate jail. Lol. Guys I think she’s a keeper as an instructor I would definitely take a class with her again.

  - Post-Licensing Student (06/2019)

Patricia's precision of detail and focus on legal issues, will help me safeguard my future as a broker. I enjoy her stories and relative examples as reference.

Julie and Lane,
I am very happy to report that this morning I passed THE Test. Both sections. I attribute much of my success to my instructor and the school as well. I appreciate your assistance and support.

  - Pre-licensing Student (4/2019)

I passed both the national and state test yesterday the first time. Thank you, Julie, for all your help and encouragement. I feel like the night 3 day a week shorter class format helped me pass.

  - Pre-licensing student (3/2019)

Patricia had the answers to most, if not all of the class' real estate license law or commission rule questions! If she ever didn't, she was able to quickly respond with follow-up research and a statute law or commission rule answer. I can't imagine, think, or know of any other instructor or person I would rather have teaching NC Real Estate Laws, Rules, & Legal Concepts than a co-author of the NC Real Estate Manual that reviews, exemplifies, and explains these laws, rules, and concepts in a lay, practical, and real-world way as a reference, resource, and guide for real estate broker practice.

  - Post-licensing Student (3/2019)

I am so grateful for the opportunity to take the pre-licensing class with Carolina School of Real Estate and extremely happy that I passed yesterday! What a relief. I made the decision to register 3 days prior the 1st day of class, and I am happy that I did it!

Kathy, you are an amazing instructor and facilitator!!! With so much information to share, you were engaging and fun, and made it all so much easier to understand. You exude confidence with your knowledge and I consider that I was taught by the BEST!!! Thank You!

Lane, you run a tight ship! You kept us organized, motivated, loaded with material and on point with where to find information and where to go for class. You have a kind spirit and made it easy to connect. Thank You!

You both ROCK!!!! I appreciate you!!!

  - Pre-licensing student (2/2019)

Tricia was the best instructor I have had the pleasure of taking a course with, and I appreciate all the knowledge and first hand experiences she shared with us. Amazing class because of her!

  - Post-licensing Student (2/2019)

Patricia Moylan best teacher I had at this school. Love this school. Lane is awesome as well.

  - Post-licensing Student (2/2019)

  - Post-licensing Student (1/2019)

  - Pre-licensing student (12/2018)

I have had such a great experience with Carolina School of Real Estate. I've taken my pre-licensing course with CSRE and now I'm taking my Postlicensing classes (all 3 post). All the instructors have been awesome!

  - Post-licensing Student (11/2018)

Carolina School of Real Estate & Instructors give thorough instruction of material and aim for complete success of all students.

  - Pre-licensing student (11/2018)

Lane and Amber do everything above and beyond their call to make sure each student has what they need to be successful in this course

  - Pre-licensing Student (11/2018)

If you are looking to get your real estate license, you should definitely consider Carolina School of Real Estate. I was very impressed with the personal attention given by Instructor Julie Aites and Executive Director Lane Young at the Carolina School of Real Estate. They were always quick to answer emails, even on the weekends, and they really spent time making sure I understood the materials.

  - N.T. - Pre-licensing Student (10/2018)

Nancy has real life examples of subject being taught. It is easy to understand concepts. I look forward to taking more classes with Carolina School of Real Estate.

  - Postlicensing Student (09/2018)

Nancy Legg is extremely knowledgeable and conveys that knowledge in a way that makes sense to us newbies!

  - Postlicensing Student (09/2018)

Just a note of thanks for the educational training that Carolina Real Estate School provided me. As a 70 year old person who had no prior real estate experience, the classes were stressful! During the first few weeks of classes; I felt like I was drinking water from a fire hose. There was so much information and all the real estate terminology was so different. Yet, our instructor (Kim Stotesbury) provided excellent support and encouragement for us to work hard and study. As the class neared its end, I feel the many class tests certainly help develop the skills and knowledge to meet the demands required to pass that final school test.

As you know, I went on and passed the National and N. C. State exams on the first try. I am certain that my success was due to the excellent material presented and your staff of qualified instructors.

  - K.D. (09/2018)

As a student who has taken this course elsewhere, Ms. Kim is 10 times better. I actually understand the subject and am feeling very confident about the test. Thank you all!

  - Pre-licensing student (08/2018)

I have really enjoyed my time in this pre-licensing course. I've learned a lot and would definitely recommend the class and school to others!

  - K.R. (08/2018)

Overall, I really enjoyed coming to this school. It has a fun and safe environment. Kim is very intelligent and gives many examples for us to understand better. She seems like she really enjoys teaching us and is very helpful and caring. One of the best classes and instructor I've ever had.

  - Prelicensing Student (08/2018)

Nancy Legg does a wonderful job of keeping the class engaged. She is a rockstar. Wonderful school and instructors!

  - Post-licensing Student (4/2018)

Julie was a very good instructor. She was clear and gave good examples. We were given plenty of practice and review so we had the skills to successfully complete this class and go on to be strong, informed brokers. 

  - C.S. (2/2018)

Aneka is a great teacher. Time goes by very fast with her and I learn something every class.

  - C.J. (11/2017)

Aneka demonstrates a mastery of effective communication. Her knowledge of the topics discussed is excellent.

  - K.M. (11/2017)

Nancy Legg is a great instructor. I've passed both sections of the state exam on the first try!

Hello Mrs. Lane. I just wanted to let you know that I passed my state test. Prep License Book was really helpful. Especially for prepping for the questions that will be on the test.

  - BW (6/2016)

I just want to send to you a quick note of thanks for the great classes on Saturday. Dr. Long made the general update as painless as possible. But the ethics classes is one of the most interesting classes I have had and she made it very enjoyable. I just wanted to pass on a note of thanks and hopeful, I'll see you again soon.

  - MO (5/2016)

Deborah Long is very knowledgeable and she knows the material like no one else. The way she teaches the class is so engaging so it is no time to be bored. I am looking forward to taking her CE classes next year. Thank you Carolina School!

Gives you the tools you need to succeed in real estate!
When I set my sights on a goal I always research the best path to get there. There was only one clear choice on where I could get the skills I needed. To be a realtor, I went to Carolina School of Real Estate. I received all the books and study guides I needed to succeed. I had to study hard to pass the class and the state exam on the first try, but it was the excellent course instructors who encouraged and help me succeed. Carolina Real Estate School will give you all the tools you need to reach your dreams of being a Realtor like me. In my first month as a realtor I listed and sold my first house. With this training, hard work, and ambition, I reached my goal. Will you?

  - AS (3/2016)

Carolina School Of Real Estate was GREAT! I took the weekend 4hr class with Jon. He was a great instructor with a lot of experience. He knew the book inside out. He taught us what we needed to know. It was stressful on all of us to be in class every weekend but it was worth it! I thought it was all common sense and boy was I was wrong! The class is a challenge so unless you put the time in do not waste your money. Jon encouraged us to read ahead and I'm glad I listened I now hold a provisional license. I will definitely take my post licensing courses here.
Thank you Carolina School Of Real Estate!

  - BW (2/2016)

I have attended other postlicensing classes from other real estate schools. This class was full of energy. Keep up the good work. I will be registering again for my last postlicensing class.

  - MW (12/2015)

I had a wonderful time during the Pre-licensing class and John Pridgen was great. He answered all our questions and got back to us with answers he didn't have. I will definitely be taking my continuing education classes at Carolina School of Real Estate.

  - JA (11/2015)

I just wanted to take a moment to say that you truly have a gem and strong asset in Aneka. She is thorough, entertaining and truly cares about her students. It's a combo that can't be imitated. I actually looked forward to attending a class that is basically dry material. I will be recommending your school in the future.
Thank you!

  - H.A. (9/2015)

"I took the weekend pre-licensing class at Carolina School of Real Estate and can't recommend it enough. As somebody with a full time job, the weekend class was the only one I could find that worked for my schedule. It was a ton of information in a short amount of time, but Aneka was able to keep the class interesting with her great sense of humor. My experience in the class was nothing but positive. At the end, I passed both the class exam and the state license exam on the first try! I will absolutely be coming back for my post-licensing and CE courses."

  - J.G. (6/2015)

"From the day I registered with Lane Young, until I was handed my Certificate qualifying me to take the state exam, Lane & Aneka Bartley were always there for me. Providing the support and direction needed as I started my new career in Real Estate. Since passing the state exam in April, I have gone ahead and prepaid for my next 3 Post Licensing classes. Classes that provide value and an excellent return. Thank you Lane and Aneka, good friendships which will just continue to grow

YOU SHOULD ATTEND CAROLINA SCHOOL OF REAL ESTATE

"So you want to be in Real Estate... First you need a solid foundation. I am writing to recommend Carolina School of Real Estate (CSRE) as that foundation toward a new career as a Real Estate professional. I have graduated from this school and attended because it was one of a small group of schools offering a weekend program. This was important as I still needed to work a full-time job as I pursued my real estate license.

During my attendance, I observed that instructors are willing to share real experiences to impart both theoretical and applied knowledge and create an excellent classroom environment. CSRE contributed immensely to our class by developing us beyond the core curriculum and providing instructional support which we needed in this pursuit. The Director, Lane Young, was also keenly involved and helpful in recognizing learning obstacles and then suggesting materials to help students overcome them. I found the staff to not only be instructors but also mentors that I can still call on now that I am working full time as a broker.

Every aspect of CSRE is innovative to say the least; instruction, assessment, interaction, communication, documentation, administration and classroom management are just some of the areas of expertise as far as instruction is concerned. I am confident that Carolina School of Real Estate will contribute effectively to your real estate career goals so sign up today. Your future in real estate is waiting."

"I finished your course in December, 2014, took the State exam on January 6, 2015; AND PASSED!!!! I appreciate your interest, candor and assistance during my training and I must admit it was helpful… The exam is MUCH harder than I expected and proper training is an absolute for success. Aneka, my instructor was fun, but made sure that candidates comprehended the material as opposed to merely parroting it back. It’s a good course… Thanks again.."

  - C.K. (1/2015)

"Being married to a professor, I know when a teacher enjoys being a teacher. Wendy Butler enjoys being a teacher. She was always prompt to class and engaged us in funny stories of her own, making the material entertaining and memorable. The material was clearly presented and explained throughout the course. She’s got a great sense of humor and kept us laughing (and learning!). I highly recommend Carolina School of Real Estate & Wendy Butler as a course instructor!"

  - Cathy (11/2014)

"It is totally worth the sacrifice! I'm not going to sugar coat it... you have to put in the work and the time to pass both the class and State/National exams. I will say, I had a really great instructor that took the time to give us real life example and we role played (which made it more memorable). He was thorough in explaining information, answered our questions and made himself available outside of class time. Word of advice, take advantage of any additional study materials Carolina School of Real Estate has to offer (dvds, tutors, flash cards, etc...), they helped me." If you seeking a career in real estate, Carolina School of Real Estate is the place to start."

  - Carol (11/2014)

"I passed the state exam today on my first try! The class was well paced and the instructor made sure he stayed focused on pertinent material we needed to understand in order to complete the math formulas."

  - Roberta (11/2014)

"Attending class at the Carolina School of Real Estate was a very challenging and rewarding experience. The class work was presented in such a manner that students could understand the material. The support and encouragement that Lane and Dennis and other staff members offered was invaluable. I highly recommend the Carolina School of Real Estate to all those who are looking to start a new career."

  - Mike (10/2014)

"From the first day of class I always felt our instructor and the school had the students best interests in mind. We were always encouraged to ask questions in class and most importantly our instructor always made sure that each and every one of our questions were answered. I am looking forward to taking my post licensing classes with Carolina School of Real Estate!"
