The Real Estate Alumni Association

The University of San Diego School of Business and the Burnham-Moores Center for Real Estate (BMC) are proud of our successful alumni who make a mark within the real estate industry. Many share their experience and successes with USD's current real estate students. More than 1,000 University of San Diego real estate alumni distinguish themselves in the real estate industry regionally, nationally and internationally. We value those alumni who contribute to the on-going success of our undergraduate and graduate programs.

The Burnham-Moores Center established the Real Estate Alumni Association (REAA) as a way for alums to stay connected with USD, the School of Business and the center.

REAA offers a wide variety of events throughout the year, bringing together old friends and new. Members are kept up-to-date on matters related to the BMC and the real estate industry. REAA's mission is to provide a forum in which graduates of the University of San Diego, working in real estate, can network and interact for business, social, educational and employment purposes, while simultaneously reinforcing the university's commitment to socially responsible leadership within the academic and business communities.

If you are a USD alumni (from any USD school or major), working in the real estate industry, here are the top 10 reasons to join REAA:

  1. Obtain a 50 percent discount on all Burnham-Moores Center's conferences for life; an immediate positive return on your investment
