UF Real Estate Advisory Board

UF's Real Estate Advisory Board works to advance the quality and visibility of the university's real estate degree programs. In 2006, long-time supporter and Advisory Board member Kelley Bergstrom endowed the Center, to further this effort. That same year, Board member Nathan S. Collier endowed the Master of Science in Real Estate (MSRE) program. These are two examples of the commitment, investment and leadership Board members provide to the University's program in real estate - with impressive results!
