Real Estate Advisory Council

The LMU Real Estate Advisory Council (REAC) provides guidance, advice and feedback to LMU College of Business Administration on business and employment trends in real estate. The council offers direction on how to improve the real estate curriculum and partners with the Real Estate Society to organize extracurricular activities to educate LMU students about careers in real estate and current trends.

REAC awards scholarships to students interested in real estate, hosts an annual Real Estate Career Day, provides internships and job opportunities, and organizes networking events to engage real estate professionals. The council also recently spearheaded a Real Estate Certificate Program for undergraduate and graduate students.
