Finding the most profound words for my very first blog post here at the Real World of Real Estate seems to be escaping me, so I'll just commence with something somewhat less profound, a brief look at the episodes I have lined up in the publishing queue.
Before I get to the next episode in line, I want to alert you to a major event coming soon. I will be joined by six of Edmonton’s most dynamic commercial real estate agents to present a market forecast and current industry topics session. I will be joined by Ben Volorney (Avision Young), Bronwyn Scrivens (Omada), Chad Boddez (JLL), Chad Griffiths (NAI), Chris Davies (Re/Max), and Marino Padoan (Cushman Wakefield) to cover all sectors of the commercial marketplace in Edmonton.
This promises to be an exciting look into some of today’s most relevant issues and what to expect next year.
The bonus is that this will be recorded in both video and audio so we will have a podcast as well as a Youtube video, so stay posted to the blog for more updates.
Next in line, and it may very well already be published by the time you are reading this, is an interview with Clare Lepan, VP of Marketing and Communications with the Calgary Municipal Land Corporation (CMLC), a subsidiary of the City of Calgary that was created to kickstart the City’s urban renewal, starting with the vibrant Rivers District, the transformation of the East Village and several other projects.
It promises to be an invigorating look at a dynamic transformation taking place in the City.
After that, I have a deep dive into the world of commercial finance with Nadeem Keshavjee, President of Greenbirch Capital. This will be a can’t miss episode as we delve into the many products out there these days that can help finance your deal or your project. We discuss CMHC financing, pari passu mortgages, high leverage construction mezzanine loans, and many more products in detail.
That’s it for this inaugural episode of The Real World of Real Estate blog. I have several other episodes in the works so keep an eye on our blog for more updates.
Keeping real estate real. Bye for now.
