Welcome to the Fidelity School of Real Estate

As Fidelity Washington's premier title insurance company, our commitment to the needs of our Brokers extends well beyond providing title, escrow and customer service. For us, it's not merely a matter of doing our job; it's about adding value at every point along the way.

We view education as an important aspect to adding value.

The Fidelity School of Real Estate classes have been developed and designed to answer current practical and everyday challenges encountered by Brokers. The school endeavors to make every player better and is ever on the lookout for ways to simplify, add value and raise the bar.

Each of our certified instructors is also a Fidelity employee who works in an area of title, escrow or sales, giving them daily exposure to the most current laws and trends in the industry, and they are passionate about sharing that wisdom and experience with you.
