Professional School of Real Estate was purchased in the late 1970s from its former owner in Springfield, Missouri by well-known educator and entrepeneur Stuart Peckham. Mr. Peckham moved it to Mountain Grove shortly thereafter. Laura Squires began teaching under Mr. Peckham's tutelage in November 1995 and bought the school in 1998. Laura moved the school to West Plains in 2000.

With experience and education ranging from title insurance to escrow to banking to mortgage brokerage to real estate, Laura is uniquely qualified as a real estate educator and school administrator and has spent the last several years not only teaching in the classroom, but perfecting the school's online real estate education programs.

Feel free to contact the school by phone at any time Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00 am and 5:00 pm. Emails and telephone calls received after hours will be answered as soon as possible.
