Learn Real Estate Basics

Real estate is typically the second largest budget item for a nonprofit organization, making it a high priority for the senior staff and board of directors. Presented free of charge, TREC has created a special series of five two-hour workshops focused on the most important real estate issues for nonprofit organizations.
