After many years of teaching real estate classes, Wendy Brown, Bill Fain and Cherie Roach decided to start their own school. Wendy is a broker/owner of The Brown Group Realty and has been involved in real estate for over 40 years. Previously licensed as a broker in Arizona, Wendy currently is licensed in Rhode Island and Connecticut. Bill Fain is an Associate Broker with The Brown Group Realty and licensed in Rhode Island, Connecticut, Florida and Massachusetts. Cherie Roach is a mortgage loan officer for Guaranteed Rate Affinity. In addition to originating and closing mortgages for 31 years, Cherie has been teaching CEU credits for a number of years and brings life and relevant information to her classes.
What brought the three together was a passion for learning and a desire to provide quality education for real estate licensees to help elevate the profession. After years of teaching classes for other schools, the decision to open their own school was an easy one. All three were involved in the creation of the KWAOR School of Real Estate that was absorbed by RIAR and felt that their work to improve real estate education was not done.
