2017 Commercial Real Estate Research Advisory Board Chair Mike Vachani, ABR, CIPS, started the meeting with an emphasis on the importance of members updating their NRDS member profile with the correct field of business, in order to have accurate information about NAR’s commercial membership and to capture better, more comprehensive data.
Featured speaker Carl Carter Jr. discussed REALTOR® safety during the Property Management Forum, telling the story of his mother Beverly, who was tragically murdered. Carter Jr.’s presentation serves as a powerful reminder of the importance of property managers remaining vigilant about personal safety practices in the daily course of onsite business.
NAR expanded the Commercial Marketplace in 2017, providing a more engaging space for commercial members attending the conference. NAR’s Commercial Services team and Xceligent™ anchored the space, interacting with attendees to convey benefits, share key information, answer questions, and conduct live CommercialSearch™ demos.
The task of building a brokerage business that lasts is all about recruiting and fostering new talent. The ‘hows and wheres’ for the task were covered in this session, moderated by Emily Line, RPR® VP of Commercial Services, and Jean Maday, NAR Director of Commercial Real Estate Development and Services.
