“This DCRE (5th year) experience is amazing. The amount of knowledge, experience, and wealth that is in the room is phenomenal. To be able to witness this was monumental for me not only because of the vast information but also because of the great impact that it has on the culture and community for black and brown people. This is a conference that brings many opportunities and presents limitless possibilities. This is what all generations (past, present and future) need.”

“CRE is consistently the least diverse professional industry in the nation and the most resistant to change.  As such, there is a major disconnect in the industry where the vast majority of key commercial real estate decisionmakers have no tangible connection to these underserved communities.  DCREC brings together industry leaders from across the country to confront that disconnect and make strides towards diverse voices becoming commonplace at the deal table. It showcases diverse industry experts, giving attendees access to the concepts and information needed to succeed in the business.  I have never in my career seen so many professionals of color who are passionate about commercial real estate in one place.  The atmosphere of fellowship fostered at DCREC facilitated unprecedented cross-regional networking opportunities, access to capital, and professional development.  The future of CRE is diverse and inclusive; the DCREC is at the forefront of that future.”

“The Diversity in Commercial Real Estate Conference was a unique experience, in that it took on the very bold and necessary task of bringing together some of CRE’s most important players to engage in dialog about the industry and more specifically the value that diversity brings to commercial real estate. The panelist were incredibly engaging, the discussions were informative, and the energy was electric!”

“An amazing one-of-kind experience with the highest caliber of highly accomplished black professionals across a variety of verticals in commercial real estate who are doing amazing work.”

“When I think of the Diversity in Commercial Real Estate Conference, two words come to mind….Powerful and Motivational.  The conference was so amazing, the speakers were engaging, and the panel discussions were enlightening.  It was targeted to a broad audience so there was a panel discussion for the very experienced CRE professional to the novice. I was literally blown away to see so many minority real estate professionals in the room.”

“I attended the Diversity in Commercial Real Estate Conference and found it to be very informative. Many times you attend similar conferences and they are filled with “fluff”. This content was timely, accurate, informative, and most of all pertinent to real life situations. I would attend the conference again!”

M. Wilson
“As someone with little professional CRE experience, I learned so much about the breadth of skills that are relevant in this space and opportunities to enter the field. The sessions were informative, I appreciated how engaging and forthright the speakers were. I also met a lot of people who I plan to keep in touch with.”

Robert J.
“The Diversity in Commercial Real Estate events are not to be missed!! It is rare that Black Real Estate professionals who work and invest all over the globe can come together and share knowledge and experiences in an inspirational environment. Any Real Estate professional can benefit from the content at the DCRE events. It does not matter if you are a student, broker, lender, investor or portfolio manager. The experience is enriching and beneficial to all. After attending your first DCRE event, you will definitely want to come back year after year and see the familiar faces of the individuals you met or heard speak at prior events. It does not matter the market you work or invest in, if you are from the East coast / South / West coast / Mid – Atlantic or Mid – West there is content for you and individuals in attendance at the DCRE events that you can connect and learn from.”
