NAPLES, FL, June 3, 2010 –Larson Educational Services (RDB Ventures, LLC) of Fort Myers has expanded to a new location at Horseshoe Park of Commerce in Naples. The new classroom facility is conveniently located just north of the Naples Municipal Airport off Airport-Pulling Rd. The family owned professional education company focuses on licensing and continuing education courses for real estate sales associates, real estate brokers, mortgage brokers, mortgage loan originators, and community association managers throughout Southwest Florida.
The business is owned by brothers David and Brad Larson, and management is overseen by their father, Rick Larson. The Larsons opened their original location at Royal Palm Square in Fort Myers in November 2008 and have seen significant and rapid growth in market share, which directly led to the opening of the new location in Naples.
“We are 3 years ahead of schedule”, said co-owner and General Manager, Brad Larson. “Our original business plan had us opening in Naples in 2013, but our integration into the Southwest Florida marketplace and community has happened even faster than our conservative expectations. The leaders of the industries we teach have continually asked us to move south and that we do it quickly. We are proud to be able to say that we are now offering our complete schedule of courses in Naples.”
The Larson’s approach to professional education is what sets them apart from others. Although there are hundreds of options in the state of Florida when choosing an education provider for mandated pre-licensing and continuing education, Larson Educational Services has become the school of choice for professionals in Southwest Florida.
“We are a ‘cradle-to-grave’ organization,” said co-owner and Director of Operations, David Larson. “By offering excellent educational experiences in our clean comfortable classrooms, and preparing people for success in the industry through our expertly prepared course materials, people want to come back to us for more. We’re not in this business with the plan of being around for just a couple years. We will be here for a long time and we want to earn the right to be the school of choice for our students’ entire career.”
“Our instructors”, Rick added, “are the absolute best in the business. We have a team of 9 instructors who care more about our students and the experience they receive from us than any group of instructors I’ve seen in my 30 years in the business, and I’ve seen some great instructors. They’re smart professionals who know how to teach and how to present. They make learning fun. Like we say around here at Larson, “get more than just credits, get education you’ll enjoy.”
Larson Educational Services is an affiliated business member of the Naples Area Board of REALTORS®, Bonita Springs Estero Association of REALTORS®, REALTOR® Association of Greater Fort Myers and the Beach, and the Punta Gorda-Port Charlotte-North Port Association of REALTORS®.
The new classroom at 3073 Horseshoe Drive South, Suite 114 is conveniently located within a 10 minute drive of 5th Avenue and Tamiami Trail, as well as only a short drive from Golden Gate Parkway and I-75 which makes it easily accessible to the markets of Bonita Springs, Naples and Marco Island.
“We have created a solid foundation that we will build upon for many years in Southwest Florida,” said Brad Larson. “Professionalism is our top priority and it absolutely shines through from everything we do, from our website to our customer service to our course materials to our classrooms and instructors. We want the business leaders of the area to know that’s what we’re all about.”
