The Real Estate Accelerator Lab (REAL) is an industry-supported program designed to educate and mentor the next generation of Greater Cincinnati real estate professionals. Program participants are chosen to bring together a diverse class with a focus on leadership and those typically underrepresented in the real estate development industry. The goal of the REAL program is to expand diversity of race, ethnicity and gender identity in real estate development by offering a selected group the opportunity to expand their knowledge and build skills.
REAL 4.0 kicked off in September 2022 and recently graduated 27 emerging leaders in the real estate profession in the region. Participants developed a valuable network of fellow students, REAL graduates and industry professionals. Importantly, graduates learned the building blocks of creating and sustaining thriving careers and communities. These joined more than 75 who have graduated from the program since 2020.
