The Intracoastal Real Estate Academy had its beginnings over 25 years ago. Originally founded by Phillip Galloway, a 40+ real estate veteran of the area, he opened The Market Place Real Estate Academy to fill a need in our area for high-level real estate education. For the past 25+ years Phillip and many other great instructors developed a reputation for quality instruction and caring.

Phillip partnered with Intracoastal Realty in the 2000s to house and support the school in its company offices. Over the past decade our services, reach, and following have grown.

In 2019 Intracoastal Realty took over the school that Phillip founded with a commitment to continue and uphold his heritage of service to our local REALTOR community. Rebranded as the Intracoastal Real Estate Academy, we are excited to continue that legacy and to serve you.

Intracoastal Real Estate Academy has been a leader in real estate education for over 25 years. We are not the biggest school in the area, nor do we want to be. We are limited by design – offering the most compelling courses and the areas greatest instructors. If you are someone that is interested in numbers, we have one of the highest pass ratios for our pre-licensing courses as measured by the state, and have graduated hundreds of students that have gone on to become top producing real estate professionals in our area. We are here to help you launch your career, and we will continue to support you afterward with our post-licensing and continuing education programs.

Let us put our experience to work for you.
