Marlene McKinley is an excellent instructor!  I had the opportunity to have her as an instructor for some of my continuing ed.  She has a way of making the not so exciting topics entertaining and teaches you tips to help you remember the information for the test.  She is a great person and instructor!  I highly recommend her for all of your real estate educational needs: pre-licensing, post licensing and continuing education.

Andres Goyanes, MBA | Real Estate Marketing Professional

The experience of taking the Sales Associate pre-licensing course at Classic Real Estate School was both enjoyable and exciting. The atmosphere was conducive to learning, especially after a long day at work, and the class size was just perfect to help us interact and learn from each other’s own perspectives on the real estate business.
