We are proud supporters of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art (ICAA) Southern California chapter. Architecture holds a very special place in our hearts and directly affects our real estate business. A skilled architect or designer can blend both form and function together to create something truly amazing. We are always looking to expand our own education in this subject, and we encourage tomorrow’s architects to pursue their passions within this field of study.
The ICAA SoCal regularly hosts educational workshops, online webinars and continuing education courses. Here are some of the events coming up in May and June:
