Commercial real estate the focus of events

October 2016

Commercial real estate the focus of events

Condo towersDo you work in commercial real estate? Would you like to expand your business to include commercial transactions? Do you want to learn more about commercial trades? 

If you answered yes to any of the above, the Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA) has organized two upcoming events to meet your needs. 

For the first time, OREA has organized professional development events within the Emerge series that are geared specifically to commercial real estate. The Commercial Emerge days are scheduled to take place on Thursday, Nov. 17 in Ottawa Thursday, Nov. 24 in Toronto. The respective venues are the Centurion Conference Event Center and the Toronto Real Estate Board office. These events are part of OREA’s ongoing series called Emerge: Moving You Forward with the Tools for Tomorrow.

“This is fantastic,” says Eavan Travers, commercial director at OREA and a commercial REALTOR® from London. “The event encompasses and reaches out to all members. Many are involved in commercial transactions and are interested in learning more about the process and to get some tools to help them facilitate commercial trades.

“Our members have been wanting this for a long time,” says Travers. “Research has told us that there is a great need for this. In response, OREA has put together these one-day, action-packed events to allow the members to learn more and feel confident with commercial real estate.”

“These events will have something for everyone across a broad spectrum -- from seasoned commercial pros to those who handle just one or two commercial transactions a year,” she adds. “The lineup and content will enable our members to become much more educated and confident in dealing with client requests, whatever their volume of commercial trades.” 

Both events are part of this fall’s Emerge series designed to develop your skills and knowledge of real estate. The commercial events complement the other six events for residential REALTORS®. This year’s events urge you to “unlock your business potential with a client-centric strategy.”

Topics for Commercial Emerge include: what you need to succeed in commercial real estate; the changing economy; ins and outs of commercial lending; what it’s really worth; tools that improve investment analysis; trends in multi-residential; environmental assessments; what’s new in business brokerage; legal pitfalls in commercial transactions; and haves and wants networking.

Both events will feature commercial real estate experts. Find more details on Commercial Emerge, here. The cost per person for each Emerge event is $79 for OREA members and $109 for non-members.
