Realtor University Update: Accredited!

realtor universityThe big news for spring 2016 is that Realtor University’s Masters Degree Program is now accredited. Dean of Academic Affairs Dr. David Overbye told members of the Professional Development Committee this morning thaat this achievement was finally reached two months ago, after years of hard work by the Realtor University staff. To date, 27 degrees have been conferred on MRE candidates, and tomorrow – Friday – another 10 students graduate from the program.

“It is always the right time to pursue higher education,” Overbye said. Realtor University students range in age from 24 to 71, with the average age being 48. If you are thinking of exploring a Masters Degree in Real Estate, check it out. It is a rigorous program that takes about two years to complete, and students explore various tracks depending on their interests and background. Scholarships are available based on merit, not financial need.

I was in the first graduating class, and highly recommend if you are curious that you check it out. If you have questions, and want to speak to someone who has been through the program, please reach out to me. I’d love to talk to you.
