Marlene Douglas


The Georgia Academy of Real Estate was founded by Marlene (Price) Douglas, a real estate agent and broker in the Augusta area for over 25 years. Fueled by her passion for leaving a legacy of honesty and trustworthiness, she feels a commitment to her students and the clients that they will serve.

"My hope is that anyone who comes into my classroom or my office will leave with a more positive outlook than when they came in. I want to foster a fresh perspective and renewed faith in yourself and your ability to succeed at all that you do. I am only successful if you are. YOU are the reason I come to work every day. I only reach my goals when you do, and nothing makes me happier than reaching my goals."


In Loving Memory of "Mr. Myagi" Anthony Wilkerson

Tony was a dedicated instructor at The Georgia Academy of Real Estate and was responsible for hundreds of students getting their start in the real estate industry. “Mr. Miyagi” made learning fun and kept the classes lively with his down to earth style and sincere love for people. Tony served in the US Air National Guard for six years. He had a degree in Biblical Studies from Blue Mountain College in Blue Mountain, MS. Mr Wilkerson was a Licensed REALTOR® with Douglas Lane Real Estate Group. He coached football and baseball, as well as taught independent study students at Augusta Christian School in Martinez, GA. Tony was also a missions director for his church and devoted husband of almost 49 years to his bride Lynn. "Mr. Miyagi" was laid to rest on November 5, 2020. Tony was gifted with an ability to sense the hurt in others and would always take the time to offer a prayer or just a listening ear. He will be greatly missed by us all.
