In 2021, the MREA Advisory Board was established. Their first order of business was to seek input from Membership. In February, two surveys were sent; one to REALTOR® Members and one to Brokers/Managers. The surveys were open for two weeks and together, received over 150 responses.
In 2020, the Greater Kalamazoo Association of REALTORS® (GKAR) established the Michigan Real Estate Academy (MREA) Task Force to perform an overall review of the MREA. This group met several times throughout the year, and it was their recommendation to establish an MREA Advisory Board that would continue to further examine the operations and offerings of the MREA as well as make recommendations to the GKAR Board of Directors.
The MREA Advisory Board is reviewing the survey results along with a comprehensive report detailing each segment of the MREA’s offerings (Pre-Licensing, Continuing Education, Designations and Certifications, and Broker Prep) to inform their recommendations for the GKAR Board of Directors.
