Formed in 2001, the Asian Real Estate Association of American is a national trade association committed to enhancing the business opportunities and success of real estate professionals serving the Asian American community. AREAA is dedicated to promoting homeownership opportunities among the many Asian American communities throughout the nation.

The group has members in Canada, Singapore and in states across the country. Members of the group’s board of directors include professionals from a variety of realty, bank, equity and title companies.

The group’s initiatives are focused on providing an accurate account of the issues facing Asian-Americans as they relate to housing and home ownership.

“Some data indicates that Asian-Americans are doing quite well, particularly in comparison to other racial minorities. However, the population is a diverse one; with many ethnic, cultural, language and religious groups, and each with its unique history and experience,” according to a description at the group’s Web site.
