About the Instructor


Gary Roland does not teach just TO the end-of-course exam: Roland teaches so that the students understand real estate and can, therefore, pass BOTH the end-of-course exam and the state exam the FIRST time…and become successful more quickly in real estate.

You are invited to attend our FREE Career Question & Answer Session on Monday evening, July 1st, from 5:30-6:30, at ROLAND SCHOOL OF REAL ESTATE, 8443 Pensacola Blvd., just 1 mile north of Interstate 10. We’ll be glad to answer all your questions about getting into a new career.  Our next evening Sales Associate 63-Hour Pre-License Course begins Monday, July 8th, and will meet on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings from 6-9:30 pm for five weeks, with the end-of-course exam scheduled for Monday, August 12th, at 6 pm.  Our next 2-week daytime Sales Associate 63-Hour Pre-License Course will meet Monday through Friday from 8 am to 1 pm the two weeks of July 22-26 and July 29-August 2 with the end-of-course exam also being given on Monday, August 12th, at 6 pm.

Gary Roland has been full-time in real estate since 1978.  (Prior to that, he taught English in high school and college.)  he became a million-dollar producer and quickly became a multi-million-dollar producer.  In 1983 he received both his Broke and Instructor’s licenses.  He then successfully served in management with one of Pensacola’s largest real estate firms from 1983-1993.  This combination of teaching, selling and management experience has made Roland an exceptional real estate instructor!

Having secured his Florida Real Estate Instructor’s License, Roland has continually taught licensing courses ever since.  Seeing the opportunity to better aid students, he opened Roland, Inc. School of Real Estate in 1997.  Having a Master’s Degree and having taught and administered at the college level, Roland is an unequaled real estate instructor!  His background in sales, management, and education combine to make a unique, highly-qualified instructor.  He authored a much needed “The Nuts and Bolts of Real Estate–The Newer Agent’s Quick Start to Success” course to give newer licensees the tools needed to become more successful more quickly.

Roland does not teach just to the end-of-course exam.  Many a student has taken such a class only to pass the end-of-course exam but find it impossible to pass the state exam. The purpose of Roland’s instruction is that the student UNDERSTANDS the material: the student can then pass both the end-of-course exam AND the state exam AND can be more successful more quickly.

Roland’s instruction is dynamic and animated, giving the students pertinent illustrations and explanations of the concepts to make them memorable for the students.  Varied methods of learning and understanding are used since students differ in their means of comprehension and recall.

Roland is married and has 5 children and 13 grandchildren, and has served on the staff of The Heritage Baptist Church of Pensacola since 1975.  Esteemed among his peers, he served several terms as a Director on the Santa Rosa County Board of Realtors and also served as President of the Santa Rosa County Board of Realtors.

An evening Pre-License Class begins about every 6 weeks: a daytime Pre-License Class begins about every third month.
