Saul Ewing Real Estate Conference detailed in The Real Reporter
This story offers highlights from Saul Ewing's 2nd Annual New England Real Estate Conference as well as an assessment of the event from Sally E. Michael, a partner in the Real Estate Practice. The conference drew about 200 people on November 7, 2012 to the Westin Waterfront Hotel in Boston.
"We had a great crowd, we had a wonderful turnout, and there was lots of energy in the room," Michael told the publication.
Michael also said she was pleased with the reception to the first panel, "The Present – Where are the Opportunities Now?", which featured five real estate investors explaining whether they would buy four hypothetical properties in the retail, multi-family residential, industrial and office sectors. Saul Ewing provided them with details about the mythical properties in advance so the panelists could base their answers on due diligence.
"We used it as a springboard and it was a great way for us to hear their thoughts about how they analyze opportunities," Michael is quoted as saying.
Details about the second panel discussion, "The Future – Finding Debt and Equity in Today's Economy," also were included in the story.
