San Antonio – Holding On

CCIM 2009 Book CoverNearly 400 people attended this year’s annual CCIM Symposium held on November 12th at the Westin La Cantera.  The real estate community of San Antonio/South Texas gathered to collectively review where the market currently stands in the real estate cycle and, more importantly, where it is headed.  

After a touching memorial tribute to the late John Vogel, CCIM, the keynote speaker, Kim Gatley, Senior Vice President and Director of Research for the full-service real estate firm REOC Partners, discussed the good, bad and ugly of the local market as she delivered a broad spectrum of information pertaining to the commercial real estate industry. 

The keynote address was followed by six specialty speakers including a Land presenation by Erika Blythe, Land Development Solutions; Retail presenation by Rick Carduner, Carduner Commercial; South Texas presentation by Suzanne Scott, CCIM, KW Commercial; Multi-Family presentation by Amber Lenz, CCIM, First Texan Realty Group; Office presentation by Ryan Harrison, CCIM, Magi Real Estate; and Industrial presentation by Terry Warth, SIOR, CB Richard Ellis.

One recurring theme in nearly all of the presentations was the impact that the tight lending environment is having on the real estate industry.  Still, the fact that San Antonio and South Texas has avoided the worst of the economic declines and maintained a certain amount of momentum throughout the down cycle led presenters to echo the theme of the event – Hold On…It’s Worth the Ride!
