Real Estate Educators

Real estate educators, or real estate teachers, provide postsecondary instruction to students wishing to enter the real estate industry. They also offer continuing education opportunities or training to those already committed to a real estate career. They teach in colleges and universities, as well as in smaller classroom settings such as park districts, for-profit proprietary schools, conferences, and real estate corporations. Many belong to the Real Estate Educators Association, which serves the interests of real estate teachers nationwide.
