For the past thirteen years, the Illini Real Estate Forum (IREF) has fostered a community of real estate professionals, joined by a common University of Illinois heritage, with the objective of improving practitioners’ careers while giving back to the College of Business, specifically, the real estate discipline.  


Today, the IREF remains committed to providing financial support to Illinois real estate students while developing an effective network of Illinois alumni in the real estate industry. Each year, we hold networking events, panel speakers, fundraisers, and mentorships with the aim of connecting with fellow Illini students and alumni.  

With your help, we will continue to develop one of the best alumni networks and enable the Illinois Real Estate program to achieve continued and growing success through our endowment.  Go Illini!
