Zoom and On-demand electives! National, State Exam, Math Prep! Instructor Courses
Whether you are struggling with the North Carolina state exam as a new licensing candidate or an out-of-state broker who needs to pass the state portion of the exam, North Carolina's real estate exam is notoriously difficult. In 2021, 63% of students failed on their first effort.
Out-of-state brokers did even worse: 68% failed.
My state exam review program has 23 video lessons, guided questions and answers, and practice test questions.
This NC real estate exam prep program is designed to feel like you are in my pre-licensing classroom but with a focus on what you need to pass the 40-item state exam.
What's different about my state exam prep course from the
other available courses?
I wrote it. I teach it. I designed it.
I am a veteran real estate educator
with 35 years of classroom experience.
The program is $64.
Don't take my word for it. See what my prep students have to say here.
See what my licensing students and colleagues have to say about my teaching here.
Here' are some samples:
"I want to thank you for your help. I have passed the exam with your help, and I am grateful and blessed to have found your course." --Eric Torres
"Excellent news…I passed the exam today, first attempt😊! Your course was instrumental in my success. I truly enjoyed spending time with virtually you as I studied. Your joy of teaching shines brightly."--Lori Rodgers, out-of-state broker
This course is on demand. There are 23 videos to watch. Most of the videos are 15 minutes long. Some are longer. You take the course at your pace and can do all of the course or just parts of it.
You have 30 days to enjoy the material but you can ask for a 30-day extension.
Every unit has practice questions. Within each video lesson, I go over the typical exam question on the topic and show you how to answer them. Then there are practice questions you do on your own and I provide you with the reason for the right answer and discuss the wrong answers.
I also provide practice quizzes, test-taking tips, and other bonus materials at the end of the course.
This course covers all of the content that will be tested on the state portion of the NC real estate licensing exam. The 23 lessons are on these topics:
Requirement for Real Estate License
License Categories and Status
North Carolina Real Estate Commission
License Administrative / Maintenance Requirements
Dual and Designated Agency
Selected Regulated Practices
Handling & Accounting for Funds
Brokerage Fees and Compensation
Agency Contracts and Practices
Sales Contracts and Practices
NCAR Standard Form 2-T
Laws Governing Residential Tenancies
Residential Square Footage Guidelines
Miscellaneous NC Laws and Legal Concepts
General Real Estate Topics
Basic House Construction
Federal Income Taxation of Home
Ownership / Sale
Residential Loan Qualification Calculations
Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) Calculations
NC instructors do not have access to the state exam. HOWEVER, my students tell me my questions are EXACTLY like the ones they are seeing on the exam. I am the contributing author of the leading practices and principles textbook and write test questions professionally.
First, it is relatively inexpensive at $62. I have priced the course to be affordable. Other similar programs will cost you $100 more.
Second, I have been a real estate teacher for more than 35 years.
I also was an English teacher. Many students who are unsuccessful multiple times on the state exam have vocabulary and comprehension problems because the questions are long and the answers are longer. The language of test is very dense, much more than the questions on the national exam. I give a lot of guidance about how to read the questions.
I know what I am talking about when I teach. I even teach other real estate teachers.
I have four college degrees in education, including a doctorate. I understand how tests are constructed.
I wrote this course. I teach it. I run the software behind it. You won't have to wait to get answers to your questions. Just email me.
Yes. I update my materials as soon as I know that new content is being tested.
I don't provide tutoring one-on-one, but I am happy to answer your questions by email. I can also call you if you need more guidance.
No, I am sorry, I don't. But I can feel confident you will learn some important concepts and tips from the course.
There are any number of reasons. First, the test service does not give you feedback, so you don't know what the problem is.
It's likely that if you are just missing passing by 2 or 3 questions, it's reason #1 or #2.
If you are missing by A LOT of questions, it's also reason #3.
Don't give up. A good real estate broker has to be persistent to be successful, too!

Debbie, I took the test again and thanks to you, I passed. I am just over the moon and happy to get this behind me. I could not have passed if I had not gone back over the study material that you provided and the personal coaching that you gave to me. I will forever be grateful that there are folks in the world like you that really do care and have a passion for what they do. Thanks again. Happy student for sure.
Best regards, Faye Ellis (Tennessee)
Your class was EXACTLY what I needed. Exactly. I would recommend this to anyone struggling with this exam. --Melinda Pate
I want to thank you for your program. I passed after taking the State exam on the third try. Your program and teaching methods were key to my understanding the information and applying what I learned to the test. By far the best course I have ever taken! I am so thankful to have received that postcard in the mail. I look forward to taking your continuing education courses. Thank you again for your help. Bill Mock
Honestly, I thought this course was a perfect review for the state portion of the real estate exam. I really enjoyed (no, really, ha) watching the videos, executing some questions with you and then undertaking a serious of questions on my own. That being said, the layout of the course was perfect for my needs, and I could pace myself for the amount of time I had allotted to study. The fact that each chapter follows the same progression was perfect for my Type A brain, also. In addition, I looked through, read, watched and took every single thing offered in the bonus materials, which I believe helped me on the exam. My husband quizzed me the night before with the rapid fire questions. And yes! I passed with flying colors. The correct answers seemed to be highlighted and blinking, lol; plus, I took your advice and went back through every single one from start to finish before hitting "score" just to be certain. I read them as if I was reading paragraphs out of the textbook to make sure the answers made sense in a sentence. Thank you so much for an awesome course that gave me infinite confidence.

This morning I passed the NC state portion of the real estate exam! I passed the National portion a few weeks ago but had to make a second go of the NC portion. I’m thankful I received your postcard in the mail, because I feel like there is not enough emphasis in the NC portion with the regular pre-licensing classes. I am certain your instructional videos and information pushed me over the finish line! I turn 61 years old next week. This proves that you CAN teach old dogs new tricks!
From Sarah Atkins"
I just passed my National and my State exam on the first try in North Carolina! I have heard many times from many different sources how difficult this exam was, so needless to say I was really nervous going in. I honestly had mentally prepared myself to fail at least 1 portion of the exam on my first try, just to et it out of the way and get a taste for what it is like.
However, during the State portion I can honestly say that heard Debbie's voice in my head many, many times while reading the questions and reasoning my way through the correct answers. Your course was undoubtedly instrumental in helping me pass the state portion of the NC exam on the first try. I used two other popular exam prep resources but Debbie's course for the state portion of the exam is most definitely what helped me pass! Thank you, Debbie! You are a wonderful teacher, and I am so glad I enrolled in your test prep course!
"I want to thank you for this terrific course. I wish I had it earlier! But I am certain that with your teaching, and knowing that the [next] time is a charm, I will pass this time! I am so sure that the champagne is already in the fridge! Thanks again."
Lisabeth Carlson, Charlotte
