Details for Real Estate Professionals

Acceptance to Divorce Real Estate Institute  for those seeking to obtain the title of Certified Divorce Real Estate Expert™ is limited to those practicing real estate professionals who have obtained or surpassed the following criteria:

  • Minimum of three years professional experience in which they have transacted a minimum average of fifteen listings per year 

All applicants are required to submit:

  1. Their professional resume
  2. List of cities they serve and/or would like certification in
  3. Your complete pre-listing packet (as you would provide a homeowner)
  4. Three years of closing data, from their MLS or brokerage
  5. Two letters of recommendation: one from their broker and one from a peer

Each applicant to DREI is considered with great care. While professional accomplishment is important, the Admissions Committee considers many other factors—strong personal qualities, special talents or excellences of all kinds, perspectives formed by unusual personal circumstances, and the ability to take advantage of available resources and opportunities.
