Our Mission...

The Harvard Real Estate Alumni Organization (HREAO) is a worldwide network that comes with value - the chance to connect with others who share your passions and interests. It is the only real estate professional alumni group that is officially affiliated with the Harvard Alumni Association SIG at Harvard.  The mission is to provide members with opportunities to enhance their knowledge of the business of real estate, to network, and to share experiences and enhance professional relationships with current students and other graduates of Harvard University.  We invite alumni speakers who are leaders in their metropolitan areas and property sectors, and work closely with the University, local Harvard Clubs and businesses to bring together a diverse and like-minded group of alumni and professional leaders for all kinds of events.    


HREAO promotes professional leadership of the Harvard alumni community in the real estate industry, striving to advance its core missions:

  • Promotes fellowships among Harvard alumni and support alumni in the real estate community.
  • Establishes collaborative academic and professional network.

* We serve all students and alumni of Harvard University regardless of school or degree. Our alumni advisory board is composed of graduates from almost every school at Harvard: Law, Business, Design, and College. Our membership also includes former Harvard instructors and current students.
