Taking a real estate night class between Thanksgiving and Christmas is quite stressful, but Gabriela Clontz and the SeaCoast Real Estate Academy made learning enjoyable and efficient. I felt very prepared for the written exam at the end of class and was very confident going to take the computerized Commission exam. Gabriela has a beautiful, witty personality (and patience) which makes the night classes fast-paced and enjoyable. She gave us great outline notes, class quizzes, and a lot of math help, all of which prepared us nicely for passing the exams. I will return to SeaCoast Real Estate Academy for future educational opportunities, and I am looking forward to Gabriela Clontz being an instructor for post licensing, as I learned quite well from her bank of knowledge.
Adonna Pipkin
Well taught class, and the instructor even followed up after the course with answers to any questions that were not covered by the material. Highly recommend.
Corey Bullock
I am quite satisfied with the recent pre-licensing class I just completed with Gabriela. Although overwhelming, Gabriela was phenomenal at mining out the key phrases and important theories for each topic we were studying so that we would understand them forwards and backwards. Which was essential come test time. She made the class enjoyable through the mundane. Her real world knowledge was very helpful. Her teaching style was exemplary. She made a terrifying experience enjoyable.
Nathan Graff
A great class to participate in if your career choice is real estate! I just graduated from the weekend class...everyone is very friendly and eager to help you succeed, they give you plenty of information regarding the market and education, and Gabriela was a fantastic instructor. I would definitely recommend this to friends, family, and anyone interested in succeeding in a very competitive industry.

I recently completed the pre licensing course and would recommend Sea Coast to anyone who is considering taking the class. The facilities were well equipped, clean, and conveniently located. The instructor, Gabriela, was friendly, knew the material very well, and enjoyed teaching. The text book was large and a little overwhelming at first, however, she helped the class to focus on what was important to learn and necessary to pass the exams.

Wonderful learning experience and so happy Gabriela's guidance helped me through a tough class!

Great course. Our instructor, Ann Hughes, was wonderful - she truly cared about us and made the class fun. It is a very intense few weeks of instruction, but her knowledge of the material and way of teaching helped me pass both the class test and NC exam. I would recommend Sea Coast Real Estate Academy to anyone looking to get into real estate.

I recently completed the pre licensing course and highly recommend this school. We were given great highlights and areas to focus on while studying​. Our teacher, Gabriela, was very good at explaining the material and focused on key terms. She also made sure we understood the process, and not just test material. We were thoroughly informed of the steps we needed to take for things like our background checks etc. After completing this course I was prepared and informed about who to contact to schedule state exams and what would be required of me moving forward. I will certainly use Sea Coast for my CE classes.

Education and preparation is the key to success in every career. Sea Coast Academy provides the essential foundation for taking the NC Real Estate exam and created a collaborative environment where the students also challenged each other to achieve a deeper knowledge of the material. After taking the Sea Coast Academy final exam my confidence was high and made the NC State Exam seem easy! That's when I realized just how much I benefited from choosing the "right" place to start my Real Estate Career.PS Passed the first time and finished fast!

Took the prelicense course from Sea Coast Real Estate Academy and was impressed with the professionalism and delivery of the instructor Gabriela Clontz. She made it easy to learn a fire hose of information in a short period of time and had me prepared to pass the in class exam. The facilities were clean and comfortable.

Gaby is phenomanal. She does a great job at explaining all the material that will be on the exam! She also does a very good job at answering all the questions you may have.
Rixi Sandoval
Various methods of media for teaching. No reading text books, all information associated to real life situations. Not boring at all. Extra bonus speakers from vendors in the business.
Sea Coast REA has the most affordable classes and the best instructors. It is a bit far for me to drive, but due to COVID, I found this gem and was able to take Post classes online. Gabriela was very informative, interactive, and it wasn't a long dry class. I wish I would have found this sooner. Recommending to anyone and everyone who has classes to complete!
Amanda Sutton
The teachers are super helpful and are very eager to help us understand every concept needed to become a good real estate broker

I took the pre-licensing course at SeaCoast Real Estate Academy with Gabriela. The amount of material was overwhelming, but Gabriela got us through every bit of it, and was great at stressing the most important aspects. I passed the in-class exam, and both the national and state portions of the licenising exam on my first try! I would and will definitely recommend SeaCoast Real Estate Academy and Gabriela Clontz.
Katie SZ
I had such an amazing experience! I had Alison Keller as an instructor and she is AMAZING! She makes the class interesting with her own anecdotes, but also makes sure that you are learning the material. She definitely made me feel prepared to pass the class and the real estate test. I’d recommend Sea Coast Advantage and Alison to any one looking to get their license.

Took pre-licensure class in Jacksonville, NC and it was a great experience. Hurricane Florence caused a few weekend classes to be cancelled but the instructor was very accommodating to ensure each student received all the class material to complete the course. Will definitely take more courses from this real estate school.

Took my pre-licensing course here and had an amazing experience! The teacher was extremely knowledgeable and really listened to all our questions. They were very accommodating when it came to rescheduling classes because of the hurricane (Irma) and took into account all of our needs and life outside the classroom. I highly recommend Sea Coast Real Estate Academy if anyone is thinking about getting their real estate license!
Michelle Haynes
I recently completed the Pre-licensing Course taught by Alison Keller. The experience was a good one. Relevant instruction and prepared me well for passing both the class and NC State exam 10 days later. I would recommend Sea Coast Real Estate School to anyone seeking a good experience.
Keith Eades
I just completed the pre-licensing course at Sea Coast RE Academy and I can honestly say that my experience was so much better than I ever expected. My teacher, Gabby Clontz, made my life changing decision to pursure real estate a really positive one. She gave us everything we needed to pass the exam and went above and beyond to make sure we understood the tremendous amount of information being thrown at us in such a short period of time. She offered tutoring in her own spare time, was always available after class to work with us one on one and made sure we knew exactly what to expect come exam time. She made what most people might consider a terrifying, intimidating experience, super comfortable as well as a lot of fun. I'm beyond excited to have passed the exam, but will miss that class at the same time. Not only did I learn an incredible amount of info regarding real estate, but I also learned a lot about myself. I made some great new friends who I know I'll continue to keep in contact with, one of which is Gabby. Thanks for a great experience Sea Coast!
Christy Stewart
Regulations and expectations were laid out clearly. Material was covered thoroughly with plenty of study guides. I would recommend this school and teacher to anyone needing to take their real estate license exam. I will be returning for post licensing classes.
Derek Davis
What's up Nate! And all my other classmates in the jan 2017 class. I must say Gabriella is an awesome teacher. If you want to pass the class your first try you have to take it Gabriella, she is awesome. She does a great job at presenting the material, explaining the hard to grasp concepts, and takes the time with everyone to make sure he/she understands the information. You can really tell she cares about being a real estate instructor and wants each and every one of her students to pass the first time. If you are in the Wilmington and wanting to take the prelicensing class sign up with Gabriella, she'll get through it.

Gabriela Clontz was an amazing instructor! Her energy and enthusiasm made the class an enjoyable experience, and her knowledge and straightforward teaching style made it easy to learn. I feel very fortunate to have had her for my instructor. I can't imagine that anyone could have done a better job!

Jeremy Denny
I had a great experience taking my Real Estate classes here! I was working full time and going to school 3 nights a week for 3+ hours. Needless to say it wasn't easy! However, with the encouragement from our instructor and from other classmates in the same situation, it helped tremendously. Our instructor also empathized with our situation and would spice things up when our fried brains couldn't think! When I took the class test, I felt very prepared & knew exactly what I needed to study-I PASSED! And I also passed the State test on the first attempt!
April Swafford

Donna is STELLAR! She and her team quickly adapted to the unprecedented environment and successfully engaged all participants.
Sea Coast Academy is the only place to go for your NC pre-brokerage training if you want in-depth instruction by very qualified and engaging educators. It had been 20 years since I was in a classroom environment but my instructor Gabriella made me feel very comfortable in learning the material and did so in an engaging way that made the material not seem so foreign. Sea Coast Academy has a tried and true system to make sure I was prepared to pass my boards as I did my very first try. Thank you Gabriella and Brian for providing such a great service. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to become a NC real estate broker and for any post licensing education.
