Black Real Estate Roundtable

NAREIM hosted its second Black Real Estate Roundtable gathering in Atlanta on March 30, 2023 gathering almost 60 black professionals from within NAREIM member firms for networking, advocacy and professional development discussions.

During keynote conversations and a professional development workshop, members discussed the need to build relationships before you need them. 

“Don’t take your relationships for granted and understand the power of relationships,” said one keynote speaker. “Build relationships before you need them. It’s a simple philosophy. You never know down the road how that relationship may be important for you.”


The meeting also included a professional development workshop, where members discussed results from individual personality tests taken prior to the meeting and how their personality traits impact the people around them. To read the full key takeaways, click here.

The opportunity to network with other Black professionals in the industry was amazing. Seeing so many intelligent, like-minded individuals in a room discussing our real estate in every aspect was amazing.

I loved interacting with people who share similar fears and success stories but also look like me. I formed a lot of great relationships that night. Thank you.

I loved the mixed arranged tables - very helpful for career starters still getting into the networking groove. Loved that it was not a overly large mega event and I still met a lot of people. Felt very comfortable.
