  • "There is no comparison. Superior is the best real estate school in existance. Maybe I am puffing (wink wink) a bit but they deserve it. You had me at hello. By the way, the support staff is superb as well. You kept me on the straight and narrow. One goal in front of me. Because of all of you I met that goal. And Bill, one of your best decisions was to hire Steve Robinson! I hear the other teachers are equally top notch as well. Now off to a well deserved soak in my hot tub, relaxing for a day before back to serious studying for the State exam- Thank You!"
