On 7/14/21, KC Conway, Chief Economist for the CCIM Institute, presented a webinar entitled “The Resurgence of Secondary Markets.”  It was a free webinar that was a CCIM Region IV sponsored event.  Lots of great information is in this webinar to help navigate the economy and inform your next commercial real estate deal.  If you missed it, you can watch it in the link here.

And, here’s the link to the white papers from the “Post-COVID Industry” webinar that our chapter hosted on 6/22/21.  Craig Finfrock, CCIM, David Hyun, CCIM, Adam Palmer, CCIM and Timothy Veler, CCIM prepared the presentation during their CCIM Institute JWL Leadership Development class.  Truly appreciated these gentlemen presenting their research/insight to our CCIM Houston/Gulf Coast Chapter.

Our Scavenger Hunt in Montrose on 7/29/21 was a great opportunity to meet fellow CCIMs and network.  The teams gathered at the La Colombe d’Or Hotel and advanced to Griff’s Irish Pub, Montrose Collective, Present Company and Tongue Cut Sparrow.  Thank you to Matt Moake, CCIM (Immediate Past President), Emily Zarcaro, CCIM (Treasurer) and Evelyn Ward, CCIM, (Past President) for creating this creative event.  Pictures shown here are from the Scavenger Hunt.
