Inaugural Industry Conference To Be Held For Commerical Real Estate And Financial Providers - Louisv

The inaugural Midwest Institutional Real Estate Equity Investment Summit will be held in Louisville on Wednesday, June 11, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Ice House, 226 E. Washington St. It is presented by the Kentucky Certified Commercial Investment Member Chapter and Real Estate Venture Exchange LLC, a regional marketplace of commercial real estate owners, developers and prospective equity investors. Tony Fluhr , president of the Kentucky CCIM chapter, said the groups had the idea late last year to put together a forum to help Kentucky CCIM and REVE finance and package deals in the post-recession era. To bring expertise to the table in how to finance and package commercial real estate deals, REVE and Kentucky CCIM have asked leaders of major development groups to talk about contributing to growth in the region. Headlining a panel of nine financiers and developers is Stephen Sterrett , senior executive vice president and CFO of Indianapolis-based Simon Property Group Inc., the world's largest real estate company. Other panelists include Charles Carlisle , CEO of Nashville-based Bristol Development Group; Matt Cohoat , CFO of Indianapolis-based Becknell Industrial; Dave Harrison , president of Kansas City-based VanTrust Real Estate Development Co.; and Talmage Hocker , CEO of The Hocker Group, LLC, based in Louisville "All of these groups tend to have a large regional and national perspective," said Brian McChesney , secretary for the executive team at REVE.

Real Estate Draws In $120 Billion ATP Fund Reviewing Price Hedge - Bloomberg





Answer: I enjoy the fact that generally, practicing real estate law requires assisting parties on opposite sides of a transaction accomplish a common goal, such as the purchase and sale of a piece of property, or the lease of residential or commercial space. It is a balancing act between protecting a clients interest and not being so overzealous as to cause a transaction to terminate.
