Empowered Filipinos who excel in institutional real estate
To educate, mentor and grow a symbiotic network of Filipinos in institutional real estate
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.
Mixers are coordinated in different regions - Chicago, Los Angeles,
New York City, San Diego, San Francisco and Seattle
Mentors with expertise can help develop the career of a mentee.
FIIRE helps pair up mentor/mentee in this important development relationship.
Join us in getting the word out to students and others about the commercial real estate industry.
Usually scheduled for the end of summer, FIIRE members come together for an evening of presentations and discussion regarding our industry.
