In April 2020, in response to Covid’s impact on in-person networking and interviewing, the Fisher Center and the Accelerating Careers in Real Estate program at Haas offered a series of twice-weekly career discussions for real-estate-focused graduate students at Berkeley. Based on the value of this series, this same team, along with Prof. Nancy Wallace, hosted a 3-part program for undergraduates to further educate and inform them about trends in the real estate industry and specific firms and roles.

The events showcased the difference between debt and equity financing on real estate transactions; innovative, affordable housing developments in the Bay Area; and the effects of coronavirus on two important segments of real estate—hotels and healthcare.  Panelists were all generous Berkeley alums who have meaningful and impactful careers in the industry.

We hope you find these recordings informative and inspiring.
