REMI School of Real Estate was founded as one of the first online real estate schools in the nation. Though it has served many States, REMI was founded in Kailua on Oahu. We pride ourselves on quality courses and great customer service. Our courses consist of narrated presentations. David Catanzaro (MBA, PB), our founder and primary instructor is a highly sought after instructor because of his teaching style, caring personality, and large knowledge base. Well-regarded by novices and experts in the field, David is known for his very practical teaching style as it is relatable, and enables students to readily put information into practice. David's passion for real estate is evident in his teaching, and he clearly cares about instilling that knowledge and enthusiasm in others. David has an MBA in Finance, over 40 years of practice in real estate and has been licensed in multiple States. David is a certified International Distance Educator (IDECC). He has authored numerous courses that have been approved through the rigorous review of the Association of Real Estate License Law Officials (ARELLO). His courses have been used in multiple States, having been accredited by over 10 licensing authorities. We hope you enjoy him as much as we do.
You can begin our narrated course from phone, tablet or computer. No special apps are needed and your 24/7 access is instantaneous. Simply, click the ‘My Courses’ tab and the button labeled ‘Open.’
Launch your first chapter or course to begin. Our instructor begin talking you through each topic, drawing from readily-applied; real-world examples from his over 35+ years of practicing in real estate. The course is self-paced, allowing you to print notes, review previous material, and (if applicable) take and re-take quizzes as often as you like throughout the access period.
When life calls you away to take a phone call, pick up the kids, or go on vacation, you have the luxury to stop-and-go whenever please. Simply click ‘exit’ and the program saves your place. If required by your State, the course includes any required course surveys / tests.
The process of issuing course credit / certificates differs from State-to-State. In States like Hawaii, REMI will send you an email to let you know your completion has been submitted to the State usually within 1-3 business days (allow 8 to be safe). In each State students are each responsible for independently confirming they have completed the requirements and that the State has everything they need for processing (fees, paperwork, course completions, all steps completed). Instead of REMI submitting completions to the State, some States (ex: Iowa and Washington) ask that students print and save their own certificates in case of audit.

Our courses are phone / tablet compatible. If you need help enabling the presentation window to open -- see below.
If you do not see the presentation, check that pop-ups are enabled on your device. For example, if you using Safari, you can go to the gray Settings icon, then scroll to Safari, and then scroll down to Block Pop-ups to be sure that the setting is gray / inactive. If your setting is green, it means pop-ups are blocked and the presentation cannot launch in a new window.
If you are using Chrome, look for 3 dots. Click those dots and you should be able to click "Settings" and then "Content Settings" and look for an item labeled "Block Pop-ups." If your setting says 'On' it means pop-ups are blocked and the presentation cannot launch in a new window.
Steps can vary based on the device and version of software you are using.

Hawaii licensees must be aware that AHEAD of sign-up:
Licensees are responsible for knowing the Hawaii Administrative Rules related to Real Estate Brokers and Salespersons (HAR Title 16, Section 99). A copy of HAR 16-99 from the State's website is found below. This information is subject to change without notice. Licensees are responsible for checking for updates.
Hawaii Administrative Rules (§16-99-115) require licensees provide continuing education providers with picture identification and a current real estate pocket card or notification of licensed status from the commission. Licensees are responsible for submitting these items to REMI via email or postal mail prior to beginning a course for credit. Failure to do so may impact the ability to receive credit for the course.
The DCCA (licensing branch) has rules about taking duplicate elective courses. These rules are subject to change without notice. At the time of this writing, licensees may receive credit for duplicate course titles, but not in back-to-back bienniums. If you have taken a course in the most recent biennium, you will want to choose different titles this biennium. Courses with the same title but taken from different schools are not considered duplicates. Please contact the real estate commission for questions.
