My clients are trade associations and businesses that invite me to make a presentation for:

a) their board of directors, staff and stockholders for internal strategic planning considerations

Since 1997, I have continuously monitored global, national, state and local economic conditions to help people make informed decisions related to real estate. That is what makes me somewhat unique, because I tie all my analysis to real estate decisions.
