    The REEA DREI Designation

    "Distinguished Real Estate Instructor"

    This designation was created by the Real Estate Educators Association to set the standard for excellence in real estate classroom instruction.  Regulators and others can be assured that a real estate educator who has earned a REEA DREI designation will exhibit a mastery of subject matter, proven presentation ability, relevant experience, and superior teaching skills.

    The REEA DREI program is administered by the REEA DREI Leadership Council which is elected by the REEA DREI membership. The REEA DREI designation is a classroom teaching designation that adheres to the Generally Accepted Principles of Education (GAPE) adopted by REEA.

    Superior School of Real Estate

    My association with REEA continues to provide benefit to both myself and the learners who participate in my classes. Many of us come to real estate education as subject matter experts and do not have formal instructor training and REEA provides essential instructor training through its Instructor Gold Standard Certification and DREI Designation. Both programs provide the instructor tools and support necessary to create an effective, engaging classroom environment for learners.
