Here Are Just a Few of the Experts Behind our Industry-Leading Real Estate Courses.

When it comes to your real estate education, you wouldn’t want teachers who are just okay at writing courses. No, you want the best, which is why we at The CE Shop pride ourselves on selecting the most knowledgeable industry experts to give you the most up-to-date and pertinent information for your real estate education. Their unique backgrounds and perspectives bring invaluable resources to the table. Let’s dive in and show off some of the award-winning, industry-leading experts who create our online real estate education.

Kent Strobel

After graduating with honors from The Citadel in 1968, Strobel began his teaching career in South Carolina. In 1984, he earned his real estate license and achieved his real estate broker license three years later. During this time, he also owned and operated a successful manufacturing corporation. With an extensive background in real estate and business, it was only natural that Kent would gravitate towards a career teaching real estate education. That’s why in 2001, he got certified by the South Carolina Real Estate Commission and began his real estate teaching career at Fortune Academy. Some of Kent’s other accolades include:

  • One of the first real estate brokers to earn the Accredited Buyers Representative Designation from The National Association of REALTORS ® (1997)
  • Earned his GRI (1998)
  • Became a certified instructor for ABR courses (2007)

Kent brings a great depth of knowledge with respect to South Carolina as he currently owns and teaches at his Kent Academy of Real Estate in Myrtle Beach.

  • Distance Education Instructor certification from the International Distance Education Certification Center® (2008)
  • Certified instructor for the At Home with Diversity course from the National Association of REALTORS® (2014)
