About Us

AIREE was created to help more African Americans take part in the real estate industry and change the trajectory of communities throughout the U.S., that have been either been redlined or left behind.

Focused on the development of leadership, broker owners, development of new businesses and industries, and helping organizations understand the dynamics that systemic roadblocks bestow on African Americans, AIREE will created to encourages everyone to learn from the failures of the past, plan for the future, and "be intentional" by incorporating more inclusive programs geared to African Americans and people of color.  

Categorized as “Minorities” under the same grouping as women and people of color. Many times, African Americans are pushed down to the bottom of the pool and receive the least amount of consideration, funding, and focus, when it comes to opportunities. Understanding this dynamic, our goal is to help industry leaders and organizations recognize these biases, and work to create more inclusive practices within their company, by "being intentional" when it comes to marketing, hiring, promoting, developing, and maintaining African American employees, leadership, clients, and customers.
