• "Being a full time student and a working mother of two very small children, I was very nervous about this state exam. BUT with the help of Carolís class, book and lots of dedication I was able to pass and I could not be more excited! Thank you Shipman & Butler!"

    -- CherylAnn in Charlottesville, VA, March 2017

  • "I passed my test thanks to your awesome class! I really appreciate that you were so detailed. I learned so much more from your class besides just a way to pass the exam on the first try. Thank you so much for your knowledge and positive energy. You made the class very enjoyable and I was a little sad when it ended because you made it so fun!"
    -- Dena in Newport News, VA, March 2017

  • "Just a note that I passed {huge sigh of relief} . . . Iíve sent off application for the VSP background check & will apply for my license when received. Thanks for your comprehensive training and advice! The manual was a valuable addition to my 25 yr background in real estate."
    -- Shirley in Richmond, VA, September 2016

  • "I attended your classes on June 9th/10th and just wanted to let you know that I took the exam this morning and passed (YAY). Thankfully it was fairly easy and painless. Your class definitely went over a lot of the questions (both in insurance and title) listed on the exam I took, so thank you for that!"
    -- Emma in Chesapeake, VA, July 2016

  • "Carol,
    Your study guide prepared me to the fullest extent! I was more than ready for the exam. As I read through each question, I was amazed how quickly I completed the test. It was as if you were right there giving me the answers! I recommend your course to anyone wanting to become a licensed Title Agent!"
    -- Korreain, April 2016

  • "I just have to say Carol is absolutely amazing! I took a coarse thru someone else about two years ago, didnít learn anything of what I needed to know, so needless to say I failed the test miserably. Once I failed I gave up on trying to get my license all together until I was recently presented with an opportunity to take Carolís class. I am proud to say that I not only learned a TON in those two days but I also PASSED THE EXAM! She truly does an amazing job teaching and let me tell you she surely knows her stuff! I wouldnít recommend anyone else!"
    -- Sydney in Virginia Beach, VA, March 2016

  • "I finally got off my duff & took/passed the Va. Title Agent exam last week. Thanks for the excellent prep! It was not difficult (took about an hour), but that's in large part because of your class & the day I spent on Wednesday reviewing your written materials. While it's true that I'd learned it all before, most of the knowledge had managed to seep to the bottom of my memory bank. Your class & materials were just what I needed to get refreshed."
    -- Mark in Richmond, VA, January 2016

  • "I took the class in December and really enjoyed it, Carol is an awesome lady and a genius in the profession. I don't think you will find many people at her level of expertise and background. I went into the class with absolutely no experience or knowledge on the subject which made it a bit of a challenge for me. I failed the test on the first two tries, third time was the charm. I was very anxious taking the test and don't think I really thought the questions through the first two times the way Carol told me to (my bad). Frustrated after the first two attempts I read through my notes and material again and actually had a light bulb moment, it finally clicked. The third attempt was a no brainer after I stopped overthinking it all. Don't be frustrated if you don't pass the first or even second time, I hate to fail a test so it was a blow to my ego. Carol is a great resource for any additional help or questions you have, she was very patient with me and all my questions. In hind site she probably wanted to shake sense into me for some of the questions I asked, but in the end I got it. I recommend her class, your in good hands."

    -- Chrissy in Chesapeake, VA, December 2015

  • "I took the Title Underwriting exam on Monday and I PASSED; my first attempt! I tell you, during and after my time in your course I never had a doubt that I would pass the exam. In fact, my main motivation and anticipation in completing your course was to gain all of the knowledge, in 16 short hours, regarding how to properly do my job; only thereafter was I concerned about the exam. Don't get me wrong, the exam was very real to me. I am so very thankful for your guidance, your abundance of knowledge and insight into the world of title, and am honored that I had the opportunity to learn from you and Steve. I felt an abundance of pressure lifted and gained a wealth of confidence in my ability to succeed in title underwriting by completing your course. From registering for your pre-licensing course, following along with the structure of your class and invaluable handbook, preparing and registering for the exam and subsequently completing the agent process with the Bureau, your guidance has been seamless. The exposure to important professionals in the industry and having the opportunity to build relationships and network with fellow students/future professionals in the industry was vital to me and will be so as I move forward in my career. Thank you, again, for offering a course that is unlike any other. You truly care about producing successful students/future professionals and that showed in the short time I spent with you. My only regret is that the course is not required to be longer. I would have been thrilled to spend several weeks learning from you!"

  • "I passed, Lucky Me! I was so lucky to have your class. Thank you so much for your effort and being there for me!"
    -- Jenna in Fairfax, VA, November 5, 2015

  • "Hi Carol! I PASSED! Actually, I aced it first try! Your pre-licensing class coupled with your training manual was just what I needed to ensure success for my Title Insurance Underwriting License! I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed your class! I appreciate the effort you take to make sure that all of your students will be ready for that exam! I will highly recommend you (Shipman and Butler Consulting, LLC) as the number one class for pre-licensing, as well as continuing education. Thank you again for making my future that much brighter!" Sincerely,

  • "Hello, Just wanted to let you know I took my test today and passed!! Thank You for teaching a great class :-)."
    -- Michelle in Front Royal, VA, July 27, 2015

  • "I have taken Carol's classes several times over the years, and now that she has teamed up with Steve, the classes that they offer are beyond anything available to us, anywhere else in Virginia. They are knowledgeable, yes, but more importantly, they both love our industry, and it shows whenever they are speaking. As a fellow, self proclaimed 'title nerd', I enjoyed every minute of their instruction. Steve's years with the Bureau of Insurance, coupled with Carol's years of title experience, make their classes extremely broad based. It's a great combination and I passed my Title Exam with ease. Thank you both, for everything!"
    -- Tamara in Winchester, VA, July 16, 2015

  • "Hi Carol and Steve, I took your prep class on 11-12 June in Fairfax, and just wanted to let you know I passed the exam on my first attempt this week. I felt very prepared for the test, and appreciate how you presented the material in class. Thanks so much for a great prep class!"
