Hart Real Estate Academy Fills Void Left by OREA College

The Hart Real Estate Academy has officially launched with the mandate of helping new and existing real estate professionals satisfy their educational and professional requirements, thereby raising the bar in Ontario.

The academy will provide interactive in-class sessions both face-to-face and online as REALTORS® learn the business and partake in pre-registration and articling courses, ensuring a higher calibre of graduate.

Effective, July 1st, 2018, The Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA) is no longer offering in-class learning sessions for many of its registrant and articling courses through OREA Real Estate College. Students will only be able to take these courses via correspondence or online self-study, with no interactive instructor and peer component.

Surina Hart, Gino Schincariol and Lorne Andrews, certified real estate instructors and industry professionals, spearheaded Hart Real Estate Academy in response to OREA’s decision to ensure class sessions are available for students who prefer to learn in an interactive live or online setting.

“Hart Real Estate Academy classes are designed to provide students with useful content to ensure that the material is not only covered to enable a passing grade on the exam, but also to provide practical information to enhance participants’ real estate skills,” Andrews explains.

“We’re educators who are making a difference in the lives of real estate sales professionals, brokerages, buyers and sellers,” says Hart. “We believe in helping students acquire the knowledge, skills and resources they need for the future, now – so they save money and time – and, most important, are well equipped to overcome the challenges often presented within the earlier months of their careers.”

Classes offered by Hart Real Estate Academy are facilitated by certified real estate instructors and industry professionals, with the face-to-face sessions being held at York University’s Aviva Tennis Centre.

“There has been a lot of discussion in the real estate industry about the need for increased educational requirements and more practical training to effectively raise the professional bar in our industry, and I believe that the Hart Academy has timed its entry into the market perfectly,” states Don Kottick, Past President of the Real Estate Institute of Canada (REIC) and a Director with the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA). “I’m confident that graduates of the Hart Academy will enter the market better equipped for success and work to a higher standard of professionalism – just what the industry needs.”
