Steve Stromfeld

STEVE STROMFELD, The owner/coordinator of REALTY INSTITUTE is a real estate professional in his own right as well as the hands on person overseeing the entire operation of this successful school.

Steve's background includes residential real estate sales as well as extensive experience in mortgage financing. Steve has been in the real estate education business for more than 30 years and has owned Realty Institute for over 20 years.

Steve’s vision on how real estate education would be achieved in the future was the driving force behind the continued expansion and development of our online education. He understood the time constraints most people have and saw online education as the way to allow anyone with a desire to learn, the opportunity to do it in the privacy of their own home and at their own pace.

When we asked Steve what separates your company from the rest, his response was simple, "the use of advanced technology has allowed us to maintain our continued success after so many years.” In addition he stated, “I have always believed that customer service is the backbone of any great company. Students don't want to push buttons, get voice mails and not have e mails returned. A live person will answer our phones 99% of the time during our business hours and our e mail response is just as amazing. My staff is trained to recognize that our students are our number one priority"

Steve continues to oversee the new course development, state notifications and the ever changing education requirements throughout the United States. Steve prides himself on the professionalism of his staff of instructors, which include attorneys, real estate brokers, mortgage brokers, home inspectors and appraisers.  


Dianne Stromfeld

Dianne Stromfeld was the founder of Realty Institute more than three decades ago. She spent many years as the owner/broker of two successful real estate offices in New York. Over the years, her career path led her into the training and education of salespeople and brokers. Dianne was one of the first state approved instructors when real estate education became mandatory.

She saw a need for well-trained instructors delivering the required material and started Realty Institute to fill that void. She is now the Education Director and oversees, writes and edits all material used in our courses, as well as being responsible for the training and oversight of all instructors.

Dianne spent many years training and educating licensees in different parts of the country, which gave her the unique opportunity to understand the differences in real estate practices. The result was the ability to write and develop courses in many states.

Dianne has served as president of the Multiple Listing Service of Long Island, the Century 21 Brokers Council, and the Huntington Chapter of the Long Island Board of Realtors. She was featured in Who’s Who in American Women for many years. She has also been a consultant to brokers and attorneys.

Over the years she has served on many committees for her State Board of Realtors and has been a coordinator to the New York City Council.
