Real estate is what we love. Building connections between our real estate classrooms and our community is what we do.
The Everitt Real Estate Center is dedicated to bringing the College of Business real estate programs together with the Northern Colorado real estate industry, ultimately benefiting students, faculty, professionals, our community, the state of Colorado, and beyond.
We coordinate opportunities for students and faculty to meet, learn from, and even work with local real estate professionals. In exchange, real estate professionals turn to us for new business solutions from our knowledgeable faculty, as well as new ideas and talent from our emerging professionals.
We sponsor numerous conferences and events that provide students and professionals valuable industry insight and a way to connect and share information. We also produce research that explores current industry trends.
A part of the College of Business Department of Finance and Real Estate, the Everitt Real Estate Center is a nonprofit membership organization guided by an advisory board. The center got its start in 2000 with a grant from the Mortgage Bankers Association. In 2004 alumni and local real estate developers Eric Holsapple and Don Marostica donated $1.5 million to establish an endowed chair in the college's real estate program, which promoted the center's mission to bridge the gap between academics and industry. The center became even stronger – and got its name – when Bob and Joyce Everitt pledged $2.4 million in 2005 to support its efforts.
Today, we remain thankful for the generosity and vision of those who built the Everitt Real Estate Center, and for those who still support us – by donating, becoming members, attending our events, or volunteering their time and expertise.
