5th Annual Real Estate Lending Summit

Co-Hosted with Fordham Real Estate Institute

Tuesday, April 2, 2019
The greater New York City Metropolitan area has always been an excellent study for economic growth that other regions use as a guide for their communities. And when it comes to issues in real estate and lending, there is no better place to go for insight and knowledge than the MBA of New York’s Real Estate and Lending Summit. If you’re involved in residential or commercial real estate in the greater NYC area, you’ll want to mark your calendars for the 5th Annual Real Estate and Lending Summit (RELS) April 2, 2019, at Fordham University Law School, Lincoln Center Campus.

This full-day educational conference will explore the state's residential and commercial real estate markets, regulatory and compliance challenges, and emerging trends that are influencing the industry. The annual conference attracts over 175 appraisers, attorneys, brokers, CMBS professionals, construction management/engineers, lenders, mortgage bankers, and real estate sales and brokers. With representatives from academia, mortgage banking, legal and private business sectors, the Summit has an impressive lineup of featured speakers and informative sessions and includes some of the top real estate professionals in New York.
