Dear ARES members,
As the baton is passed to the 2019-2020 leadership team, we will strive to make further advancements as ARES begins a new decade. By continually asking ourselves why we do what we do, we will ensure we are focused on relevancy. By asking how we best serve our members and our communities, we will engage new members and partners and better serve our dedicated current membership. By communicating our research and our expertise to the industry, the public and academia, we will expand our influence.
With vision toward the long-term trajectory of the organization and how relevancy, engagement and influence can be achieved, my objectives as President are:
Becoming the organization we are today was not easy. The next decade will be even more complicated and complex. Those of you who know me, are no doubt aware that my heritage is Greek. Ares was one of the 12 Olympians. He was the God of War, and while not the most popular or admirable God in ancient Greece, he was a fierce and committed fighter. I am honored to serve as your President, and I promise you that I will fight as hard as Ares to ensure that ARES continues to be the organizational home of the brightest minds in real estate research and education as well as open to new ideas and innovations in advancing our field.
Dr. Sofia Dermisi
