Everitt Real Estate Center
The Everitt Real Estate Center was established in 2002 at the College of Business as a membership organization to serve the needs of the real estate community in Northern Colorado, including brokers, banks, and rental agencies.
The vision of the Center is to link various disciplines with Colorado State University such as business, economics, construction management, architecture, engineering, natural resources and geography, with various professions in investment and real estate industries to provide a broad perspective, knowledge, education and experience base.
The Center has developed a home price index for Northern Colorado available to members of the Everitt Center. The plan is to expand that index to a larger geographical area to meet the needs of regional and national real estate interest.
Goals of the Center include:
- Support real estate research, including assisting in the dissemination of research results to academic and practitioner audiences
- Seek funded research opportunities
- Support a first-class real estate program
- Support extra-curricular activities for real estate students
- Provide outreach programs for real estate industry professionals
The Everitt Real Estate Center was established with a grant from the Mortgage Bankers Association. In 2004, Eric Holsapple and Dan Marostica, alumni and owners of Loveland Commercial, LLC, donated $1.5 million to create the Loveland Commercial Endowed Chair in Real Estate. In August 2005, Bob and Joyce Everitt and Everitt Companies pledged to donate $2.4 million to support their goal to set the standard in teaching, research, service and extension for the benefit of Colorado.
The Center is supported solely from membership fees, event profits and donations. To learn more about the Everitt Real Estate Center, please visit realestate.colostate.edu.
