SPIRE (Stanford Professionals In Real Estate)

SPIRE (Stanford Professionals In Real Estate) SPIRE is focused on creating a forum to support the vast alumni community of Stanford University involved in the many facets of the real estate industry.

From its foundation as a land grant university to its presence in Northern California real estate to its wide array of alumni at the top of the real estate industry, Stanford University has always been a leader in the world of real estate. SPIRE seeks to build upon the real estate tradition at Stanford and to provide a platform for continued excellence in real estate. SPIRE’s goals are to provide a forum for professional development of alumni in the broad real estate industry, to afford opportunities to current students for mentorship and professional exposure to the world of real estate, and to engage the University itself in developing a robust multi-disciplinary real estate education and research program.

The Foreseeable Future

Check out some of the predictions our friends at STANFORD Magazine have for 2021 as we all continue to navigate life amidst a pandemic.

You can even read takes from three of our own SREC members, Hanns Lee ('91), Danielle Dy Buncio ('04), and David Butler ('96) on what this all means for future workspaces, home preferences and affordable housing respectively.

Making predictions about 2021 seems downright foolhardy. We did it anyway.

SPIRE and the Stanford Alumni Real Estate Council (SREC) have officially wrapped the 10th annual (and 1st virtual) SREC Conference! While we would have loved to meet up with all of our SREC members in person, circumstances did not allow for that.

With topics ranging from the future of cities to small business survival during COVID and even college amateurism, the virtual conference was a rousing success. This was thanks in no small part to the knowledge and insights shared by our two keynote speakers: Kathleen McCarthy (Senior Managing Director, Global Co-Head of Real Estate, Blackstone Real Estate) and Sam Zell (Founder and Chairman, Equity Group Investments).

We also want to take this opportunity to thank the slate of amazing speakers who agreed to be part of the conference and imparted some of their own wisdom, making this a conference to remember: Howard Wolf (’80), Richard Florida, Steven Pearlstein, Richard Rothstein, Peter Mondavi, Jr. (’80, MS ’82, MBA ’93), Sean Feeney, Jed Walentas, JJ Redick, Prakash Janakiraman, Josh Childress (’04), Maya DiRado Andrews (’14, MBA ’22), Tyler Gaffney (’13) and George Foster (PhD ’75).

And a shout out to our awesome SREC committee for its leadership and SREC members who volunteered as moderators and facilitators: Loryn Arkow (JD ’95), Wayne Brandt (’84), A.J. Agarwal (MBA ’92), Andy Walburger (’00), Ron Sturzenegger (’82), Mike Armstrong (MBA ’09), Dave Butler (’96), Melinda Ellis Evers (MBA ’93), Julie Gutzwiller (’90), Chris Mahowald (MBA ’89), Lydia Tan (MBA ’91), Gary Beasley (MBA ’93), Shallene Gross (’06, MBA ’10) and Kyle Ladewig (’08).

Lastly, an extra special thanks to our Founding Core Sponsor Allen Matkins.
