2020 was a year full of change and uncertainty.  As we begin 2021, we’re all curious about the business environment in Commercial Real Estate.  Join us for our January Commercial Real Estate Market Update. Our panelists will provide valuable insight and market perspectives for office, industrial and retail. They’ll share the latest in leasing, tenant relations, vacancies and more.   We’ve also invited US House of Representatives Eric Swalwell, he’ll share an election update with his perspective and the affects to the Bay Area.

Due to the continued limits on gatherings, we’re holding this event via Zoom.  We’re planning some fun ways to keep you engaged during the session.  Zoom fatigue be gone!   In preparation of the session, let us know what questions you’d like to have answered. Here’s a quick form to share your areas of interest and/or questions for the panelists.  

Thank you to our Platinum Partner Gidel & Kocal Construction being the exclusive sponsor for this event.
