Super Summit Will Start in



Commencing in 2012, AREAA Greater Los Angeles Super Summit event was the result of the leadership’s inspiration and passion for helping the real estate community and fellow practitioners. The burning question to be answered for the leadership was: What can we do that will be impactful to take our community to the next level? After much brainstorming and planning, we created the idea of providing an interactive, educational, and networking platform for the real estate community. This platform would be open to all who wanted to come and share their talents and resources.

The first Super Summit was launched in 2012 as a two day event. Over 750 people attended with approximately 100 of the attendees coming from out of state, some from as far as New York and Miami. It was the biggest real estate event hosted by a local minority trade organization. To this day, Super Summit is the biggest, and most successful real estate event of its kind, providing education, and networking opportunities, to help your professional goals and make a positive impact on our community.
