About Triangle Real Estate Academy

At TREA, we pride ourselves on being a unique and student-centered school. We understand that choosing the right school is a big decision, and you want to know what sets us apart from other institutions.

We believe in meeting our students where they are, and providing the support they need to succeed. Our flexible payment plans make education more accessible for everyone. We also keep our class sizes small to provide a personalized learning experience. With a maximum class size of 30, and often much smaller classes, our students receive the individual attention they need to excel.

Founded in 2019, TREA has quickly become a popular source for real estate education. We are deeply committed to helping our students understand the material, and we go above and beyond to ensure their success. Our student-centered approach sets us apart from other schools.

So if you are looking for a school that values your success and offers a personalized learning experience, TREA is the right choice for you. Come and experience the difference.


What is the maximum number of students in the in-person class?

Our maximum class size is 30 students, but classes are sometimes much smaller than that.

What happens if I have questions during or after the course?

Our classes are very open-ended, so you can ask questions at any point during the class. If you have questions between classes, or after the course is over, you are welcome to call / text / email your instructor, or set up a time to meet with them individually. We are happy to offer up to three tutoring sessions after you complete the course, to ensure that you’re ready for the State Exam.

Do I have to complete quizzes or tests to pass the course?

The quizzes are not required for passing the course, but you must achieve at least a 75% on the course final exam. You may retake the final exam two additional times if you do not pass on the first attempt. The final exam can be proctored online if you’re not able to come to our office in Spring Hope.

Do I get a certificate or a transcript when I finish the course?

You’ll receive a certificate of completion and you will be registered with the North Carolina Real Estate Commission as complete once you pass the class.

Are there other courses or books that you recommend to help me pass the test?

There is an online testing website that we recommend you subscribe to. The cost is typically $25 for 90 days of access, so that you can take practice tests in addition to the practice test that we provide.

What if I have to miss a day of class?

The State of North Carolina requires that you attend at least 85% of the 75 hours of scheduled classroom time. You’ll need to attend the first official day of instruction. If you miss more than 15% of the classes, you’ll need to start the course over again.

Do you offer tutoring like one on one?

Unlike many schools, we do offer tutoring one-on-one and in small groups, at no extra charge. We are here to help you pass the State Exam!

Is your school licensed by the state of North Carolina?

Yes – click here to see our listing on the North Carolina Real Estate Commission website.

Does your school offer continuing education after I get my license?

Once you get your license, you’ll be able to get all of the Post-license and Continuing Education you need through the Triangle Real Estate School. You’ll have three classes which you need to take within 18 months of licensure (referred to as Post-license Courses 301, 302, and 303), then Continuing Education annually after that.

What makes your school different from other schools?

TREA is extremely student-centered. It starts with our flexible payment plans, and our smaller class sizes. We meet each student where they are, making sure that you know and understand the material when you’re done.

What textbook do you use?

We use “Modern Real Estate Practice in North Carolina”, currently in its 10th Edition (for the Self-Paced course) and Principles of Real Estate Practice in North Carolina (for Zoom and In-Person classes).

How long have you been in business as a real estate school?

Triangle Real Estate Academy was founded in 2019.
