Why This Blog?
I have no formal education in real estate. I haven't taken a college-level class on real estate modeling, architecture, real estate law, affordable housing economics, real estate capital markets, REIT analysis - really, not a single class on anything remotely related to real estate. I wish I had, but it's just not in the cards right now. Instead, my education was purely baptism by fire. That, and conversations on related topics with anyone in the industry who was willing to meet me for breakfast or lunch.
This blog is an extension of those conversions; a recording of my discussions with those individuals who've shaped the commercial real estate landscape and are willing to share their experiences with the community. This is my Masters in Commercial Real Estate.
