Top 100 Firm Berdon joined Ariel Property Advisors to partner with Legal Outreach and sponsor companies Fisher Brothers and Signature Bank to offer New York high school students an insightful and impactful look into the world of real estate.
The program, dubbed, “Let’s Make a Deal,” consists of eight sessions centered on the principles of the real estate industry, business practices and financial knowledge to introduce more high school students to careers in the field.
“We designed this program for Legal Outreach as a way to offer students an opportunity to see what careers are available, whether in a real estate company or any of the many industries that service the real estate industry,” said Meyer Mintz, partner and co-lead of real estate practice at Berdon, in a statement. “This program is not only helping students to learn more about the New York City real estate market, but also potentially paving the way for their future and the future of this dynamic and exciting industry.”
Sessions will feature professionals from Ariel, Berdon and other partner firms presenting real estate topics to students, who will then utilize that knowledge to analyze a case study and create a presentation to potential investors.
The program is currently seeking other sponsor companies that can offer insight on topics including, “Funding the Purchase Price (Lending);” “Finding the Right Investor;” “Finance, Legal and Property-Level Diligence;” and “Papering the Deal,” among others.
