I see the industry becoming more inclusive.
There are more people from diverse backgrounds in the business than ever before. It was just three years ago I met two other women while taking courses through The CCIM Institute. We wound up forming the Industrial Women in Real Estate (IWRE) North Texas. We have taken off with more than 100 members and several sponsors helping us to nurture and build a platform focusing on collaboration and supporting the success of women in industrial real estate.

With every downturn, there are opportunities.
Those in the office space market representing tenants are getting great lease terms, and owner users are still purchasing assets as businesses continue to thrive. Investors with dry powder are waiting on the sidelines when sellers are forced to sell if refinancing is not an option, and family offices are seeing this as an opportunity to transfer assets into trusts with lower evaluations, benefiting family offices for estate tax purposes. Fortunes are made not in a flat or continuous upward market but in recessions and recoveries; the only question is who is willing to take those risks.

Through tough times, CCIMs are vigorous.
Now is the calm before the storm, but the wave of loan maturities is coming. Some investors will experience pain, but others will relish the consequential opportunity. Creativity will be birthed as a direct result of a more challenging season to transact. In the end, commercial real estate will come through to the other side with strength because of its durability as an investment alternative and the ingenuity of the people involved!
