Established in 2013, the African American Real Estate Professionals was developed to support the advancement of those African Americans seeking to obtain career establishment and growth within the commercial real estate industry through professional development and networking.                                                                                                                      

The organization’s activities have a united purpose: to support future developers, construction executives, architects, asset managers, brokers, finance, real estate professionals, and law professionals in building relationships and obtaining the resources that aid in current and future career growth.


While career building and leveraging resources are key; equally prominent are mentorship and community outreach to educate the greater community about the vast opportunities and options within the commercial real estate profession.
