About Us

Company Background
Founded In 1992 by Alan Toban, Real Estate Institute has provided high quality professional education to more than 115,000 alumni nationwide.

After a successful career in real estate brokerage, new-home construction and finance, Alan turned his attention to training others. The goal in starting Real Estate Institute was to offer Illinois real estate licensing programs that would best prepare students to achieve their own successes. The positive reputation established with loyal students helped the company grow well beyond its real estate roots. Today, Real Estate Institute provides education to meet the regulatory requirements for real estate, insurance, mortgage brokerage and lending, law and accounting professionals.

Culture and Philosophy
Take a walk around Real Estate Institute and you'll hear a buzz of activity coming from our customer service representatives. Their mission is to exceed the expectations of every customer. We encourage calls from current students, prospective students, office managers and compliance officers. Customer service is on-hand to answer detailed licensing questions or give an extra dose of encouragement to students who are about to take their licensing examinations.

Equally important is the one-on-one instructor assistance that we offer. In addition to teaching classes, instructors are on duty to help our students succeed in their correspondence and online programs. Our instructors have frontline experience in their fields and can provide students with the resources and real-life examples to help them continue or start their careers.

Our team of instructors, customer service representatives, course developers, and support staff is encouraged to find new and better ways to help our students achieve their educational goals in the most efficient manner. Our marketing and management teams work with business managers and owners to help their companies recruit and retain well-trained licensees.

When you complete your licensing requirements with Real Estate Institute, you'll be among the first to hear the latest licensing updates and any breaking news. We'll also keep track of your educational status and send you reminders for your upcoming license renewals.

Don't hesitate to call 800-995-1700 with any questions. We look forward to hearing from you!
