Don't Take Our Word For It. Hear From Our Students.

Why The Ilumni Institute Is The Only Choice For Top Performing Agents.

Founded by Laurel Starks, The Ilumni Institute teaches the systems, models, and tools that she developed that has led her to be on top 1% of Realtors in the nation.


Our faculty members have over 100 years of combined experience in family law. We are active divorce practitioners who are passionate about teaching from the trenches, and advancing the next generation of real estate professionals.

How It Works

The CDRE experience begins a few weeks before class begins. We ensure that your classroom experience is engaging, transformative, and anything but boring! By doing a little prep work, you will be able to hit the ground running as soon as you graduate! 


You will be contacted by our Director of Training who will work with you to get prepped and onboarded.


We begin Week One with a Sunday evening virtual Happy Hour, where you will get to know your fellow students and faculty. During Week One, class will be held from 9:00-2:00, PT. 

You will be broken up into a small group "tribe," led by an attorney faculty member. You will spend the next six months with your tribe, where you will have an opportunity to connect on an intimate level and develop strong relationships with a community of the nation's elite, going through this journey with you.

Laurel will kick off day one with a deep dive into the possibilities and opportunities that lie within the divorce niche. Over the next 4 days, taught by the Ilumni attorney faculty, you will learn about the divorce processes and techniques that make you an expert. 

We will finish the week with Honorable Khymberli Apaloo, who will teach you the importance of an expert to judges and courts.


On Friday, we dive into business development, where you will know exactly what to say, what to do, and how to build your business in your local community of family law attorneys. 


In Week Two, the rubber meets the road. We provide you with all of the tools to design your business plan. You will practice your new skills and scripts by role playing with active attorneys, and you will onboard onto our systems that set you up for the next six months of marketing, tools, and support.

Throughout the six-month apprenticeship, you will be given your step-by-step business plan, broke up into 90-day "rounds." All of your materials and tools will be dripped out in perfect time for you to use as you develop your business in your attorney community. This includes exclusive access to our Raising the Bar CLE series - a monthly event hosted by Ilumni, for the purpose of you to invite attorneys as your guest. 

We will continue to have case studies, where we analyze real-life cases to build your confidence. We will have role-plays and masterminds, and hold you accountable to your goals, so that you can build a successful divorce real estate business as a coveted CDRE™.
