  • "This is an outstanding program ran by a woman who truly cares about her students. I enjoyed the entire course the whole time I was there. Going into the Doré Real Estate Institute course, I had zero experience in the real estate world. Throughout the course, she took her time to make sure I was catching on to every aspect of every section. If you took this course, you would not regret it. I learned a lot from her and I have continued to grow ever since."

  • "I have known Sheramie Doré for over 30 years as a local business owner and as a successful Realtor® in Lafayette.  When I walked into my first real estate school class and saw that she was now teaching, I knew that I would be getting an excellent education to begin my new career.  She gave me a thorough understanding of the foundation of real estate practice and principles, including Louisiana law, needed to build a successful career in real estate.  She presented the course in an organized and easy to learn manner, so that I could leave confident enough to get my first deal completed successfully.  Doré Real Estate Institute is my No. 1 choice when recommending a school to those interested in a real estate career!"
