Holiday Party

The Berkeley real estate community enjoyed some festive holiday cheer at the annual holiday BREAA party (AKA "Christmas with Dennis") and had many reasons to celebrate a successful 2019.

  • The Berkeley real estate team won the national real estate competition at UT Austin for the second straight year.

  • The Bears took home the coveted Golden Shovel award once again.

  • The Bears finally beat "that other team" in the Big Game for the first time in a decade. 

Most importantly, we proposed a toast and thanked outgoing President Evan Schwimmer for his tireless efforts in leading the organization over the past two years.  Evan will continue to help as Past President and adviser moving forward.  BREAA is in good hands with Briana Harney as our new President. We also thanked Will Hu for his key contributions as Vice President and announced his replacement, Ashley Weinstein-Carnes.


BREAA also announced several new directors and board members:

The Board for 2020 is:

  • President: Briana Harney

  • Vice President: Ashley Weinstein-Carnes

  • Vice President: Bill Doyle
