Economic and Commercial Real Estate Outlook

“The United States is 11.5 million jobs below where we should be. That’s huge. A key issue of the recovery is going to be matching people with jobs and getting people back to work.”

Best Practices: Exclusive Representation -- How to Really Succeed in Commercial Real Estate Without Customers

Pivoting During the Pandemic: An Interactive CORFAC Member Town Hall

“I tell people to use CORFAC as an arrow in your quiver. Most of our business is local and regional; however, there are those times when we are competing against the bigger networks. That’s the time to pull out that you are part of an international network with 70+ offices. It can help the prospect check the box on reach and coverage. Read the situation and use your membership to your advantage.”

Emerging Trends in Commercial Real Estate

“We are still spending more in brick and mortar stores than online (80 percent vs. 20 percent) even with the pandemic. The vast majority of our survey respondents believe that the majority of stores and shopping     centers will not only survive, but thrive. However, there will be some painful times and tough adjustments ahead.”
