Our Story

Real Estate School of Georgia Coordinator, Debbie Burge, and Director, Steve Burge, realized that the majority of Real Estate Schools in Georgia were located centrally to Atlanta, making it difficult for those individuals that live several miles away from the State’s Capital to attend any classes.

Their mission was to open a Real Estate School that was located conveniently for those who live South of Atlanta and provide a variety of excellent Real Estate education courses. In the Summer of 2019, their dreams came true! Real Estate School of Georgia officially opened its doors for classes on August 5 of 2019, setting all of their dreams and plans into motion. Real Estate School of Georgia provides an excellent education to those who are looking to pursue or further their careers in Real Estate.
