As the real estate market continues to struggle, there will be no better place to present, discuss, and debate fresh ideas and innovative real estate research. The meeting promises to have multiple sessions on a broad range of topics, stimulating and enlightening panels, and informative education sessions. Add to this our invigorating networking receptions and we have the formula for an outstanding meeting!


A wide range of paper sessions are being organized so that you have the opportunity to present your timely real estate research and gather fresh ideas and feedback from your colleagues. This can be extremely useful as you prepare your paper to be submitted to one of ARES’ six peer-reviewed journals. Please let me know if you have ideas for special-theme manuscript sessions or panels. Already we are creating panels on topics such as macro real estate market trends and the future of the U.S. mortgage market. We are also excited to continue our relationship with the Appraisal Institute and CCIM Institute, two key practitioner organizations, who are sponsoring our “Critical Issues” Seminar.
