about our team

Florida does not have an experience requirement to obtain a Real Estate Instructor’s license nor does an instructor have to hold an active real estate license. To be an instructor in Florida, you simply have to pass a 100-question exam and the criminal background check.

At OneBlue Real Estate School, all of our instructors are actively practicing licensed real estate brokers, the only real estate school in Central Florida that meets this high standard. It is our pleasure to introduce to you our leadership team at OneBlue Real Estate School.
