Tomorrow's Real Estate Leaders March 2021 Program Review

Thank you to the students of the ARA Tomorrow's Real Estate Leaders program which was held on March 26-28, 2021. Each of you took the time and energy to be a part of the program and it would not have been a success without your commitment, energy, focus, and participation. We want to also thank the mentors and speakers at ARA, keynote and featured speakers, and the key brokers from the major firms who helped with the case study competition. We could not have done this without you.  

"The first Tomorrow's Real Estate Leaders Program was a tremendous success. We were excited to see the enthusiasm of the student participants and we're thankful for the work put in by the ARA team, the speakers, outside guests, and everyone who made this program come to life. At ARA, we believe in the power of a multicultural workforce and the need for diverse perspectives in the industry. We look forward to continuing this program in the future to help students of all backgrounds have access to useful tools to carry into their job search and future career." - Chris Smith, Tomorrow's Real Estate Leaders Program Director
