What is REAL?
Founded in 1995 by the MIBOR REALTOR® Association, the Real Estate Academy of Leadership (REAL) is a proactive effort to identify individuals from the association's membership who have leadership interest and potential.
MIBOR's goal is to help prepare candidates to be successful leaders in the real estate profession and in the central Indiana community. REAL is a dynamic experience designed to expose participants to the principles of leadership as well as issues and trends in the community.
The first "REAL" class graduated in 1996 and over 400 REALTOR® and Affiliate members have completed the program since its inception and became "Fellows of REAL"
