United Realty Launches Students Scholarship Program

At United Realty Partners we believe that we can invest in our future by investing in education, which is why we have recently launched United Realty Students.  Our scholarship program is awarding $100,000 to students over the next 12 months.

In recent years the cost of attending college has skyrocketed.  Bloomberg reported that the cost of tuition and fees has risen at a rate of 1,120% since 1978, four times faster than the increase of the consumer price index.  Also, CNN Money publishes that the cost of a four-year public college has risen 4.8% in the last year. While many factors have contributed to the rise of prices, the amount of students needing help to pay for higher education is rising too.

Students Scholarship

In the years to come these students will be running corporations, taking seats in government, educating the youth and many other jobs.  We believe that students are the key to our future and we must invest in them the same way we would invest in our personal portfolios.

As tuition costs have continued to raise so has the average amount of student loan debt students are graduating with.  Government aid, parents’ and students’ incomes have not increased in conjunction with the rising cost of tuition.  Students are more motivated to look for alternative ways to pay for their education.  Scholarships provide great opportunities for students as they are awarded and are not required to be paid back.

United Realty Students is providing students with multiple prizes, awarded every two months.  Investing is at our core of our beliefs and we would like to hear from students about their thoughts on investing.  Entry for the scholarship is for students to submit a short, original, previously unpublished written response to the scholarship question, “How Do I Invest In My Future?”  Students can win scholarships ranging from $5,000 to $10,000 — just by writing a response to this short essay. Scholarships will be awarded on an ongoing basis.  The first submission period has begun, and will run until March 1, 2013.

Welcome To The “#CRE Post” Blog

Greetings,

Commercial real estate and investing are the foundations of United Realty. Without large commercial properties and the people who invest in them, our company, staff and current roles in the real estate ecosystem would not exist.

Making the decision to blog on behalf of United Realty was not an easy one. The information we hope you find on this blog will need to be informative, relevant, professional, and most of all – consistent. These responsibilities fall on the shoulders of our staff and each other.

We look forward to sharing our commercial real estate insight and experience as well as our capital markets insight and experience with those who choose to read the blog. Expect to find our thoughts on industry transactions and trends, as well as what we believe the future holds with respect to what we specialize in. You will also find content related to our role as corporate citizens and the social responsibilities and charitable efforts that we hold close to our hearts.

We look forward to your comments and feedback. We hope that the #CRE Post results in sharing, learning, and turning online connections into offline relationships.

Thank you,

Jacob Frydman, Chief Executive Officer
