All about IREI
Indiana Real Estate Institute (IREI) prides itself on not only preparing students to pass the state exam, but to also help them build the best foundation possible to begin, continue, and grow their real estate career. We are educators, but we are also practicing real estate agents with many years of experience. We use that experience to explain real life scenarios that help our students grow their knowledge and excel in this industry.
With its beginning in 1990, IREI remains as the longest running real estate school on the south side of Indianapolis, serving the needs of the central Indiana real estate community. However, our reputation has gained momentum and we have students travel from all over the state and even from other parts of the country.
In 2005, Brian Lee joined IREI as an associate instructor, and became director & owner in 2013. With 25+ years of experience encompassing appraisal, real estate investment, construction, and brokerage, Brian has expanded the school’s offerings and has maintained a high standard of education.
Recently, IREI gained a true partner in the real estate community, Sarah Ragsdale, as an associate instructor. Sarah has been a great addition to the school. Together, Brian & Sarah strive to create a high-quality education that serves the real estate community.
Our history is rooted in quality, knowledge and love of our profession. We truly care about our students, their success, and the reputation of the real estate community.

Brian C. Lee is our owner, director, and lead instructor. He also runs many business, is a certified residential real estate appraiser, broker, and construction expert with over 27 years of experience. He received his bachelor’s degree in finance and real estate from Indiana University. His vast knowledge has taken him all over the country to teach about many topics regarding real estate appraisal, agency, law, brokerage, business operations, contracts, and investing. When he isn’t viewing properties, writing reports, helping his agents, or teaching classes, he spends his time with his wife and children watching every Star Wars movie, ad nauseam, building LEGO, or riding his Harley.
Sarah began her career in Real Estate in 2015. She quickly gained recognition as a top producer within her team and was dubbed “the superstar”.
Residing in Central Indiana, she enjoys spending her free time riding motorcycles with her husband and watching her two sons play football and basketball. She is an experienced pet mom and her favorite “treat” is a margarita. Their four-legged family members include a Great Dane, Bassett Hound, Boxer and yes, a pig.
