    In 2018 I joined REEA skeptical of what I could expect in me becoming a better educator; you know … being an instructor for a 1/4 century c’mon …

    In 2019 I attended REEA GSI (Gold Standard Instructor Development Workshops) for the first time and the Conference. I was blown away, recalibrated, and recharged in teaching.

    I was accepted as a conference presenter in 2021 & 2022 (I’m humbled); REEA GSI again. I was accepted into the REEA DREI (Distinguished Real Estate Instructor) Candidate Program last year and again, humbled. Today we completed the REEA DREI Summit, my first, and again, humbled. It no longer ceases to amaze me that if we get over ourselves and out of our own way, the lives we can change through others sharpening our skills so we can help others with a giving passionate heart of service.

    If you’ve never considered earning REEA DREI, please do. If you have, please reconsider.

    Want to know more about this journey I began in 2017? Contact me and or attend the 2023 REEA Annual Conference and I’ll share.

    Being an active member of REEA and taking advantage of all of the opportunities I’ve been given to be a better educator has been one of the most underrated decisions I’ve ever made. I’m so grateful to so many extended hands. Mine is here for you.

    The REEA Curriculum Library (RCL) was conceived from the idea that our members can and should benefit from the expertise and talent of one another by sharing courses they have authored. With the wide variety of knowledge in specialized areas of the real estate industry, members with written content can share their courses with others. As a "REEA Members Only" benefit, those who participate in RCL will gain from the vast knowledge of the membership, enhance their catalog of courses, and have another stream of revenue while connecting with each other and the excellence that REEA delivers. By incorporating this Library, members will have the ability to pick and choose areas of interest from the various resources offered, connect directly with the creators of the content, and have opportunities to share and sell content that they have created with members of the association.  Watch the video below with Jennifer Nicely, REEA GSI, Director and REEA Education Chair to learn more about the RCL.
