- 31 July 2016: Women in Commercial Real Estate, Equality or Not? –
What better time to consider whether society is treating women as equals than shortly after the first woman has been nominated for president by a major political party. No matter your political affiliation or leanings, it’s exciting to see how far women have come in our society. But are they treated equally and given the same opportunities as their male counterparts?
Every five (5) years, CREW Networks conducts a survey, in collaboration with MIT, measuring the progress of women in commercial real estate. This survey looks at the changes from the perspective of “specialization, compensation and career achievement” and tracks changes over the last 10 years. While the survey answers many questions and the information provided can help guide all those in commercial real estate, it raises many questions that we will endeavor to answer in this show.

- 29 February 2016: Affordable Housing Update with Albert Berriz and Darryl Carter. Live, Interactive TV on March 11th @ 11:00 am, PST –
With the hot rental market, rental prices are continuing to rise, the issue of rental affordability has become a major topic of conversation. With many of the newer apartment developments focusing on luxury and resort style living, are some people being priced out of the rental market? Now, even a moderate income earner is having problems affording rental living.
Is there an alternative to the continuous upward spiral of rents and can owners and developers provide affordable housing to the vast majority of the population? What are the benefits to the development of affordable housing and can it be provided with a good standard of living?

- 26 November 2015: Multi-Family Update 2015/2016: What’s the Future of Apartments with Albert Berriz ~ Full Unedited Recording –
Multi-Family has been hot, hot, hot and it looks like it’s not going to cool off anytime soon. While the new and used home market has improved dramatically over the last two years, it still isn’t easy to purchase a home, with prices in some regions exceeding the pre-recession prices. Young home buyers are priced out of the market and baby boomers are now looking to downsize and even shift from homeownership to rentals It seems like a perfect storm for apartment owners.
But are there clouds on the horizon? Is this just a never ending upward climb?

George Papageorge, Executive Vice President – Leasing at Westfield Shopping Centers describes Westfield’s current philosophy of creating, “Point of Difference,” food at their malls. As he explains at the CREW Network Annual Convention:
“if you look at all of the data…… and what consumers want,” you recognize that they, “cannot eat over the internet, they cannot drink over the internet, they cannot smell what mom’s got cooking over the internet.” They are looking for artisan food and “regardless of where it is, they are……………

Scott Mason and I spend some time at the CREW Network Annual Convention in Bellevue, Washington. Scott is the head of Cushman & Wakefield’s Healthcare Group and is not only knowledgeable on the subject, but very personable and explains all things CRE and Healthcare well.

According to Scott, changes have to be made in order for healthcare to be affordable in the future and real estate has to be included in that equation.

This started all started with a blog article written by Allen (click here) that Jeremy disagreed with, (to read Jeremy’s response, click here).

Since EarlyShares was first organized, four years ago, there were a lot of naysayers who didn’t believe that regulations would ever get approved. Once they were approved, then people thought it was a fad. Well, with a billion dollars getting funded, just last year, it no longer looks like a fad.
According to Heather, “This is future of how commercial real estate private investing will be done.

Simon Turner, CEO and Managing Director, Western Region for Healthy Buildings and Carolyn Rickard-Brideau, partner and office president of “Little” focus on what we mean by the term, “Healthy Building. To Simon, a healthy building is an efficient building. Simon thinks of the buildings that we work in as a “machine” which helps work on behalf of the humans that sit, walk, run and work inside it. It’s supposed to be an asset, both from an accounting perspective and a production perspective.

After a summer of decreased unemployment and high expectations that the Federal Reserve would begin to raise interest rates in September, the Feds balked at an increase, surprising most people.

- 16 September 2015: The Top 2 Reasons Why Men Should Attend the CREW Network Annual Convention (Video) –
I am a long time supporter of diversity and increasing the participation of women in commercial real estate. Whenever a woman would tell me that she was considering becoming a real estate agent, I would immediately recommend that she become a commercial broker. Heck, in the early 80’s, I knew only one female broker in New York City. What an incredible advantage, she had at the time, being the only female broker. Talk about standing out in the crowd.
Of course, things have changed over the last 30 years. Now when I go to conferences like RECON, I see many women brokers walking the halls of the Las Vegas Convention Center, making deals, just like their male counterparts. I’m not saying the gals have arrived, but they are making progress.
What a turn of the cards. In 80’s I go from knowing one female broker to the present, when I can be, perhaps, one of 20 men attending a conference with 1,000, powerful, creative, competent and intelligent women involved in commercial real estate. Now I am the one standing out in the crowd.

You can see the shock on my face when Bill gave me this and other examples of how investors are repurposing real property after the recession. Can you imagine, buying an old mothballed hotel for $2,000,000, refurbishing it and selling it six months later for $90,000,000? That’s right, you read this correctly.
