History

Filipinos in Institutional Real Estate (FIIRE) was founded in 2008. The non-profit organization was the vision of Lourdes “Lou” Canlas and Gloria Gil, long-time professionals in the industry. The concept was to bring together a group of commercial real estate professionals to network, mentor and educate for the advancement of Filipinos in institutional real estate.
