History

Established in 1959 by John and Dorothy Correll, the Georgia Institute of Real Estate (GIRE) is recognized as the oldest and most widely acclaimed school of real estate in Georgia. GIRE has grown from informal tutoring sessions held in the Correll's home on Saturday mornings into a distinguished institution serving the real estate educations needs of approximately 16,000 students in Metro Atlanta and across Georgia.

GIRE was acquired by the Atlanta REALTORS® Association in 1980 and has relocated numerous times to accommodate its unparalleled growth. The main campus is located in the Tommie Jackson Building of the Atlanta REALTORS® Center in Sandy Springs.

Courses offered by GIRE meet all the requirements of the Georgia Real Estate Commission and Real Estate Appraisers Board as well as provide you with a solid understanding of the practices of the real estate and appraisal industries.
