President’s Message

I am honored to serve as RELA Boston’s President, and am grateful for the opportunity to leverage the knowledge and experience of the many individuals that serve as officers, as well as those that are our members.

We are focused on expanding our membership base, with the goal of extending our reach across the breadth of lenders and institutions Boston has to offer. Additionally, we are engaging young leaders and developing professionals, by growing our programming to provide both networking and educational opportunities.

RELA Boston is the premier organization for real estate banking connections, partners, and education. Our mission is to support, enhance, and encourage the professional growth of our members through learning, networking, and the free exchange of ideas from talented real estate professionals. We cultivate the future leaders of the Boston Commercial Real Estate Industry, while also serving the greater Boston Community.

We committed to having our events in person this past year and the feedback was strong.  Members want to meet, learn and exchange ideas in person.  We are committed to this philosophy for 2022-2023 and will have great programming including, property tours, discussion panels, educational seminars, and industry networking events.
