ARVO Realty Advisors has long been recognized for its corporate leadership in the communities we serve. Volunteering and sponsorship for the less fortunate stand as major parts of our culture. In addition to our commitment to environmental sustainability, we founded two initiatives that continue to make a difference in the community:
- Institute for Inner City Commercial Real Estate Development (IICD). The hallmark program of IICD is its “Debunking the Myth” conference series. Each conference assembles an array of commercial real estate experts, investors, developers, community stakeholders, and public policy makers to focus on adjusting perceptions and removing barriers to commercial development in a specific underserved urban submarket. As a result of these efforts, IICD has been instrumental in bringing new commercial development to urban markets that have been overlooked for decades.
- “Leftovers for the Left-Out” addresses hunger among our homeless population. Often, we throw away what others might cherish. This grassroots approach encourages individuals to provide a meal to those we pass daily on our roads and thoroughfares.
