Why Runstad

As a member of the commercial real estate community, advancing the cause of providing high quality post-graduate educational opportunities to students interested in entering commercial real estate is a high priority for me. Further, I am interested in fostering the growth and visibility of high quality and cutting-edge research activities impacting commercial real estate. The Runstad Center speaks directly to my interests in promoting post-graduate educational opportunities through the MSRE degree and the associated internships available in the community. The Research Center at the Runstad Center (formerly known as the Washington Center for Real Estate Research) offers high quality research products valuable to real estate practitioners in the Pacific Northwest as well as in the national arena.
