Where inspiration is shared.
The stellar is showcased.
+ Standards are raised.

SPIRE creates a space to shine a spotlight on our alumni who are leaders in real estate; trailblazers old and new. We showcase stars and stellar ideas in placemaking and the built environment.

It introduces us to up-and-coming Stanford talent and organizes events where we can interact, inspire, and be inspired, forge new alliances, as well as dream up and stake out new frontiers.

More info is coming soon.

Stanford Alumni Real Estate Council (SREC)

Our SREC Members are best in-class.

Established leaders in real estate and the built environment, they come together with their peers and fellow alums to inspire and challenge one another to move their industries forward. They collaborate, support each other, and equally important, have fun together.

SREC members develop the minds that will shape the built environment of tomorrow with their financial support of SPIRE and their vital role in its student initiatives.
