About REEA

The Real Estate Educators Association "REEA"

is a society of real estate education stakeholders (instructors, trainers, regulators, schools, authors, etc.)  Our challenge is to continually give our members the latest tools and techniques for effective adult education. Our goal is to make sure REEA members meet and exceed the high standards demanded in real estate’s rapidly changing legal and professional environment.

Annually, REEA hosts a national convention where educators can share, learn and network with some of The Best of The Best in the industry of education, network with their peers, meet and talk one-on-one with the people who write the textbooks, design the computer systems and develop the teaching methods used to launch novice students toward successful careers.

Several times a year our REEAaction Newsletter updates members on what’s happening at REEA, in the industry and with our Members

And every day, REEA members can communicate with each other via REEAline where topics routinely range from the ordinary to the extraordinary, all in a spirit of fun and sharing.

REEA is where the nation’s most respected real estate educators meet.
