Our Team

Brenda J. Colston

President/Sr. Trainer


Brenda comes to the Minnesota Real Estate Learning Group with a wealth of real estate knowledge, gleaned from a career expanding more than 30 years in the title insurance industry in customer care, processing, abstracting, examining, and closing. She was the first African American in Minnesota to open a full-service Title Office. She served as VP of NAREB, the National Association of Real Estate Brokers, whose mission is to support equal housing opportunities for all. She serves on several boards and committees and is a firm believer and often says “Your network is your net worth.” She is elated to fulfill her passion for teaching the Minnesota Closing Academy Courses with the spirit of excellence.

During her career in the Title Industry, she has learned the steps of processing to abstracting to examining to management and finally to her dream of closing.  She is passionate about serving people from all walks of life. Her ability to bring calm to the closing table is unrivaled. Passing her knowledge on to newcomers seems to make her come to life. You want this type of fire infused into your team!
