"iREOC’s inaugural gathering in May, established the primary bridge between real estate operators and the institutional investor community. That bridge enabled a dialog of understanding to commence—improving the quality and nature of this most important working partnership.

“The iREOC inaugural annual meeting was a great event for institutional investors who are engaged in directly investing in REOC partnerships or indirectly through their investment managers. It provided an open venue for leaders from across the industry to connect and candidly exchanges ideas.”

Scott Stuckman, Executive Managing Director Global Investors Group, USAA Real Estate

REOC partnerships have been a key component of most investor portfolios since the beginning of the institutional real estate investment industry, particularly in value-add and opportunistic strategies, but there’s never been an industry organization dedicated exclusively to advancing this dynamic segment of the market. iREOC is filling that void and the inaugural membership meeting in Park City set an exceptional standard for future events.

Michael Levy, CEO, Crow Holdings

This will be core to our future success together.
