The Real Estate Alumni Affinity Council (REAAC) has been quite active these days, offering programs and events for both real estate students and the real estate community at large.
In March, REAAC held the Real Estate Career Forum, during which a panel of real estate professionals discussed career opportunities for today’s commercial brokers, investors, appraisers, and bankers with students and alumni. Panelists shared their personal success stories and provided guidance for those entering diverse real estate sectors. Participating panelists included Tony DeRosa of Westvest Associates, Jose Hatzell of Joseph J. Blake, Tony Puente of CB Richard Ellis, and Eric Toth of Ocean Bank.
Also in March, REAAC hosted its annual Distinguished Speaker Luncheon, featuring Pedro Martin, CEO of Terra Group. Martin, one of the most successful developers in South Florida with more than thirty years of experience in real estate, spoke to about 80 alumni and South Florida real estate professionals who gathered at the Coral Reef Yacht Club to learn about industry trends.
REAAC is a sub-division of the college’s Business Alumni Chapter. The Council acts as a support group for the college’s Jerome Bain Real Estate Institute, the Real Estate Student Association (REASA), and the South Florida real estate community by organizing career discussions, seminars, and luncheons featuring keynote speakers. Join REAAC on April 13th at its Networking Happy Hour. RSVP today at http://business.fiu.edu/alumni/index.cfm.
