The Premier School of Real Estate was founded in 2006 by owner Howard R Jones Jr to provide high quality real estate education to South Carolina licensees. Originally named VHA Seminars, our school has grown from a single instructor and a handful of classes to become the largest resident owned provider of real estate education in the state.
We currently provide new licensee training in Myrtle Beach, Rock Hill, Mt. Pleasant and Greenville, SC. Additionally, we offer over 150 continuing education classes in multiple cities throughout the state, plus numerous private “in-house” classes for firms who wish to distinguish their brand and to associate their firm’s image with high standards of agent educational support. Our classes address subjects on basic principles of SC License Law, Brokerage Operations, Client and Customer Responsibilities, Risk Management, Ethical Issues, Real Estate Best Practices, and Credit and Tax related subjects.
We aspire to offer the most relevant and current real estate information available and to be the premier provider of education to licensees and investors in the state of South Carolina.
