About the MSRE Seminar Series

To further our mission of using industry and community collaboration to educate and develop real estate professionals, the Childress Klein Center for Real Estate created a Seminar Series to facilitate monthly discussions on relevant topics. These invitation-only seminars occur in the afternoon on the third Friday of each month and include time for networking, Q&A and lunch in addition to a robust discussion on the featured topic.

Current MSRE students, alumni and special guests of the center are invited to these monthly events. The Seminar Series is an exclusive opportunity for commercial real estate networking and continuing education, sponsored by the CKCRE. If you would like to request an invitation, please contact Daniel Wright.


There are a number of sponsorship options for the Seminar Series events. Sponsoring a CKCRE Seminar Series event provides valuable exposure for your organization, allowing you to be in front of emerging and established young leaders in the Charlotte commercial real estate community.
