So...why Real Estate?
Incoming college students will ask this question whether their family is in the game or not. As a field, we are unglorified. Our industry lacks the Hollywood movies starring Leonardo Di Caprio which idolize our shenanigans. Even the stars of our field with the most publicity, cue Donald Trump, are notoriously secretive about the intricacies of their business dealings. In fact, instead of positive press, some would say that real estate developers have been vilified in enough B-rated productions to create a national stigma. But, fear not! You aren’t required to raze a forest or demolish the local historical landmark to be successful in real estate. The field is vast, diverse and able to accommodate you - however your skillset aligns. So, come aboard and buckle up! We are about to make you fall in love with the wonderful field of Real Estate.

The same question can be asked for Real Estate. Where would the Real Estate industry be without great architecture and urban design? The answer again is, probably not far.
