CFCC’s Real Estate program gains statewide recognition

March 23rd, 2015 by admin

Cape Fear Community College was recently recognized at the North Carolina Real Estate Commission’s Educators Conference for being one of only ten real estate schools whose passing rate exceeded 75% during the 2013-14 academic year.

The average pass rate for the North Carolina is 60%. Between July 1 and December 31, 2014, CFCC real estate students earned a 100% pass rate on the exam.

The program’s enrollment continues to increase as the real estate market and the economy rebound from the worst of the recession.  The fall 2014 semester had 29 students and that number has grown to 32 students this semester. To meet demand and create additional flexibility and access for students, the program expanded its offerings to include both morning and evening classes.

“I am very proud of all the real estate students at CFCC,” says Laurel Pettys, real estate instructor for CFCC.

“Together we have built an excellent program that is recognized statewide for providing outstanding real estate training. When our students enter the workforce, they are confident that their education has prepared them to become successful brokers.”

CFCC’s Real Estate Licensing curriculum provides the licensing education required by the North Carolina Real Estate Commission. It prepares Pre-Licensing students to take the NC Real Estate License Examination and allows Post-Licensing students to remove “Provisional” status of their Broker license. The next class starts on May 26.
