Bert Rodgers, a pioneer in real estate education, passed away on November 14, 2019. His passion for teaching led to the founding of Bert Rodgers Schools of Real Estate in 1958. The school grew quickly, becoming Florida’s largest by the mid-70’s, and educating more than 1,000,000 students during the 58 years it was under family ownership. Rodgers taught classes, wrote course materials, hand-picked and trained instructors, supervised operations in more than 40 locations, and was a frequent visitor to Tallahassee, lobbying for strengthening Florida’s real estate laws.
In 1992, he chose Sarasota as the new headquarters for the school, moving it from Orlando so he could pursue his other passion, fishing, in his spare time. Always a visionary, in 2002, he led the way for real estate licensing courses to be taken online. Rodgers was proud to offer his students the opportunity for unlimited earning potential with a career in real estate. He was honored as Realtor of the Year by numerous Florida Realtor associations and taught classes for the National Association of Realtors nationwide.
His legacy of educating generations of Floridians will endure through the lives of all he touched. Bert Rodgers Schools continues to be a leader in professional education proving that when something is built on a solid foundation, it can continue on indefinitely.
