Welcome to HREAO

HREAO is a non-profit member-driven organization comprised of a core community of alumni, students, faculty and staff of Harvard who share a common passion for real estate, from design, construction, and services, to finance, capital markets, and investment.

HREAO aims to develop a worldwide network among members who are working, involved or interested in real estate and to facilitate and strengthen their personal and professional development while building a cohesive community within the university. HREAO works collaboratively with on-campus clubs and organizations, such as HSREC, REAI, the HBS Real Estate Club, the GSD Real Estate Club, the HKS Real Estate Club, and others, in pursuit of our shared goals.

Members may create a dynamic member profile, share ideas and expertise, explore career opportunities, and most importantly connect with fellow alumni and friends at on-campus events and at regional events across the world.
