Where real estate investment professionals learn to be fiduciaries.

NCREIF is recognized as the premier institutional real estate association.  You join other professionals who are committed to excellence in our industry.  Your selfless contribution of data is a true investment in the future of the asset class.


NCREIF holds three conferences per year. These conferences are held at various locations throughout the US and are open to members-only with the exception of selected guests.  NCREIF also offers a variety of educational programs and seminars throughout the year focusing on each of our industry’s disciplines. 


Our conferences consist of interaction between highly motivated, knowledgeable professionals.  Issues are dealt with in a collegial “hands-on” atmosphere.  Through our three conferences held each year, we have a committee structure that is open to all members and focuses on technical disciplines within our industry (Accounting, Information Management, Performance Measurement, Portfolio Management, Research and Valuation).  This unique committee structure has established NCREIF as the industry forum for addressing technical issues.


NCREIF produces several index and performance reports utilizing our Property, Fund, Timberland and Farmland databases.  In addition to reports and spreadsheet files, we offer members a variety of analytical tools to access the data directly.
