Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Starting with its founding in 1985, the American Real Estate Society (ARES) has a long and distinguished tradition of supporting and fostering innovation within the community of real estate research and practice. From its journals and support of research to its annual conference and doctoral seminar, the organization continues to advance its mission of producing and disseminating knowledge related to real estate decision-making and the functioning of real estate markets. Where previous literature has documented and reflected on the history and growth of ARES, this paper highlights the creation of a new network within ARES called the Future Leaders of the American Real Estate Society (FLARES). The purpose for FLARES is to complement and enhance the doctoral program’s implicit role in leadership recruitment and to create a structural pathway to involvement in senior leadership. This paper focuses on the opportunity and need for FLARES, its organization, and a discussion of its fit within and strategies to complement and amplify current ARES programming.
