In the early 1990's six prominent regional real estate schools started working together on a formal basis by sharing ideas and cooperating to provide their students better real estate education and training services. In 1995 Inner Circle Education (ICE), Inc. was formed. In 2001, ICE changed its name to RealtyU and the network was expanded nationwide.
With the company's 10th anniversary in 2005, the RealtyU Group had grown to become the largest real estate education and training provider in the real estate industry, with some 200 locations nationwide. The Group has also become the second largest real estate designation provider in the USA with designations such as ALHS, AHS, CNS and CNE in its stable.
