Premium Memberships


Membership in ARES is open to anyone with an interest in real estate research. This includes academics in a wide variety of fields such as economics, finance, marketing, geography and other areas, as well as professional researchers, analysts, appraisers and others. Institutions that engage in real estate-related businesses will find a sponsorship to ARES to be a rewarding experience.


There are three categories of Premium Membership: President's Council, Regent and Sponsor. ARES also has a Fellow designation for individuals. The company names the President's Council, Regent and Sponsor members and the name and affiliations of Fellows will appear in the front matter of all the journals and in other ARES publications throughout the year.
