LMU’s Real Estate Alumni Group (REAG) hosted its fifth annual “Meet & Greet” on Thursday, June 11th at McCormick & Schmick’s in El Segundo. Over 20 students and alumni with an interest in real estate attended the event, which kicked off with a happy hour followed by an optional dinner.
Alumni who work in the real estate brokerage industry, private equity, advisory services and capital markets shared information about their professional careers, business structures and real estate ventures.
“There is a sense of great camaraderie among our REAG colleagues,” said REAG co-founder Edgard Asensio ’12 EMBA. “We feel proud when we reflect on our career progressions and achievements.”
REAG brings together real estate and finance professionals, investors, alumni and students for an opportunity to network and leverage collective knowledge regarding real estate market conditions, deal structuring and working together on projects.
“It was another successful event and everyone really enjoyed themselves,” said LMU Professor of Finance and Real Estate Chris Manning. “People were engaged in small group conversations the entire evening – it’s nice to have these intimate gatherings so our students and alumni can make new connections, share stories with old acquaintances, and learn new perspectives on investment opportunities and real estate trends.”
