“AREAA provides a powerful voice for real estate professionals who represent the rapidly growing Asian American community,” said Choi. “I’m pleased to have the opportunity serve as the head of this influential trade association.”
Choi will be installed as the Incoming chair-elect in September at the 2012 AREAA national convention in Las Vegas, the largest event in the real estate industry dedicated to the Asian American market.
“Like AREAA, MMREM is committed to the national housing and economic recovery. With both organizations, I have an opportunity to make a difference in promoting homeownership for all Americans,” Choi said.
