Realty Institute has taken our 75 years of teaching and training experience in Real Estate into the virtual world as Online Classes become more popular and convenient. The same teams of instructors who developed, wrote, and produced the widely acclaimed 22.5 hrs of continuing education available now, have completed the 30-hour Gap/Remedial course. All of our courses adhere to the strict standards of New York Dept. of State and ARELLO (Association of Real Estate License Law Officials) and are fully accredited by both.
