This Is What Leadership Looks Like In The Real Estate Legal Sector

I have been blessed to have many so many wonderful connections in my 30+ years in the real estate industry. These relationships have been the foundation of everything I have tried to in the sector from initially building my public relations firm into one of the largest in the country to now building CRE // Tech into the premier events, connectivity and content platform in the real estate tech sector.

While I typically like to write about commercial real estate tech in this blog, sometimes I just like to write about my experiences and observations in business. My new journey running several startups in the CRE tech space has really taught me a lot about myself, running a business and more specifically, my observations about the tech sector in general.

Tech Now Making It's Way Into Large, Master-Planned Communities...This Could Be The Start Of Something Big (I Hope!)

I actually began my PR career representing home builders. It was the late 1980’s and that was the only big game in town if you wanted to be where the action and money were. It wasn't until the mid-nineties that commercial real estate really became a thriving sector for many of us on the services side.

Today It’s The Legal Industry, Tomorrow The CRE Tech Sector?

Today It’s The Legal Industry, Tomorrow The CRE Tech Sector?

There isn’t an industry on earth today that isn’t being impacted by technology. And the legal industry won’t be immune either. It’s only a matter of time before the commercial real estate industry gets fundamentally disrupted (hate that word) by technology as well. I have been saying this over and over and over again and it’s the reason why we acquired CRE // Tech as a way to help the real estate industry begin to embrace tech and not be threatened or challenged by it.
