Are you a woman or minority looking to break into the Denver real estate market?
The Real Estate Diversity Initiative (REDI) might be for you.
The REDI program, sponsored by the Urban Land Institute
’s Colorado District Council and the Denver Office of Economic Development, will partner 36 participants with ULI mentors, local real estate professionals, for six months to develop concepts for three different land sites.
The program, in its third year, starts in April.
This year’s mentors include: Ismael Guerrero, executive director of the Denver Housing Authority
; Chris Coble of Civil Technologies, Inc.; Lynn Crist of Morrison Development; Grant Bennett from the Denver Urban Renewal Authority
and part of ULI Colorado’s Young Leaders Group; Richard Taft, executive director of Rocky Mountain Communities.
In addition to the training and mentoring, participants get a one-year ULI membership and a chance to attend ULI’s nationwide Fall meeting, which will be held in Denver Oct. 16-19 at the Colorado Convention Center. More than 6,000 real estate professionals from across the nation are expected to converge here.
“This premier real estate event makes it even more exciting for REDI participants who would like to further their careers in real estate,” Chris Achenbach of Zocolo Development and chair of ULI Colorado, said in a release. “They can get involved by volunteering and helping with the conference, thus exposing them to a wide variety of opportunities.”
Applications are available online at colorado.uli.org and are due by March 16.
