»Hoag Center Seminar Series

The purpose of the Hoag Center Real Estate Seminar Series is to bring unbiased, real-world knowledge to the Southern California community on contemporary issues in residential and commercial real estate.  The seminar series will bring together industry professionals from the different corners of real estate to present to, discuss with, and answer questions for a diverse group of audience.   The Hoag Center Real Estate Seminar Series is a valuable resource for Southern California, and it empowers members of the community in becoming better, smarter consumers. 

We will be offering free admission and hosting the series on the Chapman University campus in Orange, California.  This seminar series held during Spring 2012 was made possible by a grant from the California Mortgage Bankers Association held in collaboration with the Chapman Real Estate Association

We are currently planning the Fall 2012 version of this Seminar Series focused on issues in finance.  Please check back for event dates and details.
