    It's no secret that some 20 major brick & mortar retail chains are on the financial ropes, rating agency downgrades are prevalent, and just last week J.C. Penney announced the closure of 140 stores and two major distribution centers. Just three weeks ago, I was called to discuss analyzing the real estate holdings of a major department store chain; on the other line, a hedge fund that wanted to buy the debt of the chain, but was fearful of how the real estate could be reused. And of course, internet shopping trends continue to batter the brick & mortar model. On Black Friday, internet based shopping actually eclipsed purchases made by consumers in stores.

  • 10/30/2012 · Real Estate
    Throughout the country, real estate agents are celebrating the wonders of sending contracts and disclosures to their clients electronically. The paperless transaction has become an admirable and reachable goal with the unintended side effect of increasing risks in real estate transactions.

    11/4/2011 · Real Estate
    Much of an individual's success as a real estate broker or salesperson is built on the good reputation he or she develops with buyers, sellers, affiliates and other licensees. Staying on a steady course, however, is not as easy as it seems. In fact, licensees may actually lose business, particularly with sellers who do not want their agent to disclose everything he or she knows about the subject property.

    9/29/2011 · Real Estate
    Licensees cannot practice real estate in a vacuum; knowledge of real estate laws, codes of ethics, agency relationships and disclosures all merge together to give them the basis from which they may effectively practice their craft and continue to build competence and confidence.
