“AREAA is dedicated to promoting sustainable homeownership opportunities in AAPI communities by creating a powerful national voice for housing and real estate professionals that serve this dynamic market.”


Founded in 2003, the Asian Real Estate Association of America (AREAA) is the largest AAPI trade association in North America. With over 17,000 members in 42 chapters across the US and Canada, AREAA provides a powerful voice and platform for AAPI housing issues.

From practitioners to lenders to lawyers, AREAA represents all sectors of the real estate industry. Anyone can be a member; the only qualification is wanting to help serve the AAPI market in real estate. AREAA members come from around the world, and your own backyard. AREAA members represent over 50 ethnicities and speak over 25 languages. As the fastest growing demographic in the US and Canada, AREAA continues to grow at a rapid pace.

AREAA organizes numerous real estate conferences, international trade missions, and advocacy and community outreach efforts at both the national and local chapter levels. Our goal is to educate industry professionals, business and policy leaders, and local communities about AAPI housing issues and opportunities.

The AREAA Leadership Summit is held at the beginning of each year and brings together all of AREAA national and chapter leaders for administrative training, education about our various projects and initiatives, and to prepare our leaders for the year to come.



The AREAA Policy Summit takes place each May in concurrence with National Asian American and Pacific Islander Cultural Heritage Month. Hundreds of AREAA members from across the country gather in Washington, D.C., for three days of political training and to directly advocate their members of Congress about issues affecting AAPI homeownership. AREAA produces a Three-Point Policy Plan each year outlining our vision for how to increase and create sustainable homeownership for the AAPI community.



The AREAA Regional Retreats continue the important training our chapter leaders receive at the beginning of every year during the Leadership Summit. Beyond Chapter Presidents, the Regional Retreats aims to educate and inspire current and upcoming leaders. The leadership and chapter training is tailored to the region and creates a localized support system.
