"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!"

The fact that this program is offered on the weekend works great with my schedule. I am able to continue working at my full-time job during the week, and study on the weekends. I can't wait to finish the program, sit for the exam, and start an exciting career in Real Estate!"
