AdventuresinCRE.com was started by Spencer Burton and Michael Belasco during their second year of graduate real estate studies at Cornell University. The site was initially meant to fill a need for readily available resources online related to real estate financial modeling and Masters in Real Estate programs. It also was a tool for the two to expand their knowledge, network, and improve their writing capabilities.
Over the years, the site has grown to cover other topics its readers have asked for. Most recently, A.CRE expanded its career section to include a commercial real estate job board. The board focuses on job opportunities our readers care most about, namely positions in acquisitions, development, asset management, advisory, and real estate finance. The site is also working to enhance its events calendar to make A.CRE readers aware of relevant industry conferences, training sessions, and meetups.
