What Students Say...

"Skilled in keeping low attention span students engaged"

“Brad Thomas and his real estate school are THE BEST! I was told about the Thomas School of Real Estate 3 days before the course started. I sent an email to the school to see if I could still enroll and Brad Thomas called me on the phone! That kind of customer service is a lost art.

Brad's real estate licensing 75-hour course (March 2021) made me feel confident in my ability to become licensed. I was a complete novice. I was completely unaware of anything related to real estate but I knew this was something I wanted to do.

Brad's teaching style, deep breadth of information and kind, encouraging demeanor made the coursework feel digestible. Brad Thomas is a REAL teacher. He has been teaching outside of real estate for years; so he is skilled in keeping low-attention span students, like myself engaged; are top-notch. I found myself looking forward to a 4-hour class at the end of a workday and the hours flew by. And, if I had any course or content questions between classes, he was just a text away! If you are looking to become licensed in the state of North Carolina, I highly recommend the Thomas School. I have heard some challenging stories about what it is like to go to real estate school, so I am grateful to have found Brad Thomas and his school.”​

Small class size makes a big difference.

Our educator has decades of experience teaching, and understands the importance of small class size. Unlike many other schools, Thomas School of Real Estate consciously limits capacity to ensure that more individualized attention is available to students of different learning styles, and to increase the opportunity for classroom interaction. Thomas' students use tablets and laptops to access Zoom video conferencing and Google Classroom to make material more accessible to modern learning habits.
