Exceptional World Class Water Awaits You in Coronado

Our April 4 - 8, 2017, Annual Meeting will be held at the recently renovated waterfront Coronado Marriott. This hotel, an invigorating seaside escape, is one of the most spectacular sites where an ARES Meeting has been held. Expect warm weather, sunny skies, a friendly, welcoming vibe, tasty locavore food and drink, an exceptional event ! This is a meeting that you do not want to miss.
There's a certain energy at the resort that will rejuvenate you. The totally renovated property is sparkling and fresh.

Professor Norm Miller has volunteered to be ARES Sommelier and he will be selecting various California wines for your enjoyment. World famous San Diego area craft beers will be on tap as well.

President's Message

The American Real Estate Society (ARES) continues to be focused on the creation and dissemination of knowledge. ARES publishes six journals and provides an opportunity for researchers to contribute studies that enhance policy and business decision-making. Its annual Meeting is a highlight for real estate researchers. The organization is proud of its contribution to both the academy and industry.
In order to continue to move ARES forward in knowledge transmission, we are improving our journal websites, introducing an automated submission system for all our journals and making sure that our journals are compatible with the newest article tracking and citation monitoring programs. Quantification of research output is of greater importance than in the past and the internet provides many opportunities to monitor the impact of research. As the President of ARES for the 2016-17 academic year, I strongly urge all members and prospective members to become active in the research area, either by doing research or reviewing the work of others. The organization is overwhelmingly volunteer oriented by design. Active participation of our membership is required for us to sustain the organization.... Read more
