Our Mission

The Black Real Estate School strives to educate people of color about the value of real estate investments as wealth building opportunities. Through our carefully crafted courses, taught by top Black Real Estate Agents, we hope to give people of color the tools that they need to be successful in the Real Estate market. Real Estate is a sound lifetime investment; it is one that can reap immeasurable dividends. With our guidance, our students will have a greater chance at success. Through knowledge sharing, sound information, and practical steps, we hope to empower the Black community.

Our History

The Black Real Estate School was founded by Andre C. Hatchett and Dr. Boyce Watkins in 2016. It was built out of a desire to share the expertise that they both gained after many years in the real estate and investment industries. Together, they have amassed an invaluable amount of information that they pass on to their students in the course. They are passionate about people making sound investments, finding financial security, building a secure dynasty, and passing on generational wealth.

Our Founders

Andre C. Hatchett is a nationally acclaimed entrepreneur and philanthropist. As the current owner of TheBlackRealEstateSchool.com, AndresNotarySchool.com and Priority Notary, Inc., Andre is a man who wears many successful hats!

Andre is the driving force behind the national Black Business Challenge social media campaign that encourages African-Americans to patronize businesses owned and operated by black entrepreneurs.

Andre attributes his passion and entrepreneurial drive to his father who taught him, “If you go to school with someone, you should never have to work for them.” Those profound words resonated with Andre at a young age. Before high school, Andre shoveled snow, sold lemonade, and wholesaled candy. His entrepreneurial skills positioned him for success as he transitioned from boyhood to manhood.

At the age of 22, Andre completed the formidable task of being a first-time homeowner. Without letting any dust settle, he then purchased a second home at the young age of 23. Continuing his real estate success, he has worked as a Business Consultant, Professional Coach, and currently he serves as a skilled Real Estate Sales Expert, earning him the nickname “Mr. Condo.”
