Hear what our students have to say:
Class of September 2016
As a person working full time with a young toddler at home, changing careers was a very daunting task. The class provided by RE/MAX of Nanaimo and instructed by Barb McNicholls allowed me to fast track my preparation for the exam by focusing on the key concepts necessary to understand and pass the material. Not only did I pass but even after only six months from enrolling in the trading services course I achieved a very satisfactory mark of 85%.
I highly recommend this program not only for people in a similar position, but anyone that wants to guarantee they will be prepared come time to write the test.

I took Barbara McNicholl’s Real Estate Tutoring course and found it to be very beneficial. Barbara does an excellent job at identifying the most examinable topics of the Real Estate Trading Services Course and ensuring that you have a clear & detailed understanding of each of those items. Not only is she an excellent teacher, but she always goes above and beyond to make sure that you will be successful. The course materials that she provides were extremely helpful to me, and she was always willing to stay after class, respond to texts and phone calls, to make sure that our questions were answered. I passed my exam with flying colors and went into the exam with 100% confidence that I was prepared. I definitely could not have done it without her! ( passed with 88%!)

Math was never my strong suit. I struggled with the math in the course material for months before I met Barb. Three weeks in to the tutorial, the math chapters were my strongest areas. I was doing interest rate conversions with my eyes closed. The tutorial focuses on the underlying topics which the exam is based on. The notes and flashcards were an incredible help. Barb’s way of teaching worked for everyone in the class, and helped us all to grasp the main concepts in order to pass the exam. I passed with an 85%. The areas we focused on the course, were the areas that were on the exam. I found it also created a level of confidence walking into that exam room, which personally, made a big difference in my overall outcome.
Thanks Barb! I could not have done it without you!

“Barbs course was great. It was awesome having the information simplified and the direction to know what areas to concentrate on. Also it kept me accountable to finish chapters at the pace of the course, I definitely would not have passed the exam as soon as I did without Barb’s help!”

Your class was amazing, it covered the important topics and really helped me know how to study and how best to use my time! If it weren’t for your course I probably wouldn’t have had the confidence to write for another couple months and I am not sure I would have been able to do it my first try! It was great to meet people to be able to study with as well and I am very thankful Braden mentioned it to me and to have met you! Thanks again for everything you did for us!
