Where We Are

The first-ever SEO Real Estate Track has successfully launched. Support from the PREA Foundation will allow SEO to sustain and grow this program, develop real estate specific training content, host real estate related clinics and events, and enlist partners to provide summer internships.

There has been considerable interest in the SEO Real Estate Track from both students and real estate organizations, including institutional investors, offering intern positions.
