Real Estate Economics

Several CORFAC members told us that they want to hear more about how the economy impacts commercial real estate.  We found an economic expert to join us at the 2013 Spring Conference in Las Vegas. Chris Lee, President & CEO of CEL & Associates, Inc., will discuss  “Real Estate Industry Trends, opportunities, and Predictions…A Roadmap to Success” during the Marquee Session.

Chris comes highly recommended from other professional networks, has his Ph.D. in Management and Organizational Development and, for over 30 years, has been an advisor to real estate companies nationwide.

Lee edits Strategic Advantage, a monthly electronic newsletter that has a futurist perspective of the real estate industry. The newest issue of the newsletter covers “2013…A time to Ascend”.

Here is how Chris wraps up his monthly report:

As author Bill Vaughn said, “An optimist stays up until midnight to welcome in the New Year. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves.” As our memories of 2012 fade and our expectations for 2013 move to our priorities and attention, we must remember that real estate has been, is and will continue to be the foundation upon which people dream and realize their potential. Ending one year and beginning the next is not a process, but an experience from which possibilities emerge. Now is not the time for resolutions…it is the time to chart your course and ascend to the top…a journey over which you and you alone have control. Now is the time to take charge of the outcome and your destiny before future events determine your fate. Now is the time to Ascend.
