Testimonials

I cannot even begin to explain how grateful I am to have been recommended to Gold Coast by my husband. With a little extra time on my hands now that the holidays are over I decided to work towards a license. Thank you Gold Coast and Marilyn! I can’t wait to take post licensing and CE at this school. Alex L.
The proof is literally in the passing! I am now a sales agent due to the amazing knowledge, skills and success of both my 63hr pre license instructor and my 45hr post education instructor. Both of them inspired me to be the best agent there is on the field! Thank you Gold Coast too for the right on point material. The State test was exactly what we learned in school, if you really dedicate yourself to follow the instructions. Erica G.
