Student Testimonial

Kelsey Satterfield's Profile Picture

"As a Southern State graduate, I chose to return to the classroom to participate in the accelerated courses offered in order to obtain my Real Estate license. As a single mother of two who worked full time, I found it convenient to attend the weekend courses at SSCC. Since obtaining my license and working in the field part-time, I have participated in the sale of 14 homes with several more in the pipeline. I would encourage anyone who is considering real estate to enroll in this program!"
