In this video, the first of a two part series, I interview Dr. Sam Chandan, noted economist and now, Associate Dean, NYU Shack Institute of Real Estate about the effect of Brexit on Commercial Real Estate.
We dissect the long and short term effects and what geographic markets may be most affected. Much of our focus is on the gateway cities, such as London, New York, San Francisco and where the direction of the flow of capital will be.
Are the economic fundamentals still solid and are the reactions more a matter of confidence. Read more
This is the first part of my interview with Neel Naicker, CEO of AMP Technologies from ICSC Recon 2016. In this video, Neel explains how the various and different forms of information from our buildings will converge and become useful in ways that we had not, previously imagined.
Think of all of the building systems in a modern office building, from heating, ventilation, air-conditioning, security, fire safety, elevators, etc. Our buildings will know of issues, problems and repairs, before they occur. The systems will order replacements and even have them installed without human intervention. Health systems will be maintained automatically in a way that insures the healthiest and most comfortable environments for employees and visitors alike. Read more

So now it's time to think about taking on new or different CRE, office, retail, warehouse or other space for your business. Business has been going well and it's time to expand. You've hired a broker and maybe an attorney and the landlord has just delivered a lease for your signature. It's tough enough to understand and run your business successfully, but now you're expected to know and understand 30 - 60 pages of lease language that is as foreign to you as swahili. You have a general idea of what you want from the space, but you're not sure how to express it in the lease so you get what you expect.
During this show, Peter Morris and I will discuss the things that you should include in the lease to make your life, during the lease, more manageable and predictable and how obtain from the lease what you think you want as well as those things that you didn't know that you will want. Read more
Howard will be a panelist at the, first ever, International BlockChain Real Estate Association, (IBREA), Conference in Newport Beach, Ca. on May 17, 2016.
The International Blockchain Real Estate Association is nonprofit, member-focused trade organization dedicated to implementing Bitcoin and related blockchain technology in real estate transactions. Most likely you don't need to fully understand what "blockchain" is except that it is the technological concept behind "bitcoin" and is touted as many as the secure future for real estate and other online transactions.
I will be part of the panel, entitled, "Reverse Pitch" where, instead of entrepreneurs pitching their ideas to investors, I and the other panelists will pitch their industry wide challenges to the entrepreneurs and investors in the audience. Following the conference, participants can continue the conversation through IBREA's Slack community and AngelList page. The focus will be on specific, significant, but solvable pain points affecting payments, escrow, title, information veracity, legal issues, and sales.
Although I will be a panelist and expected to be an "expert", I will also be attending to learn more about this technology that is held out to the the future of commercial real estate. Read more
