If you ask any property manager or company who operates in the real estate management industry how they are doing, the answer is “BUSY!”. It seems like there is never enough time to get everything done and here we are already closing out the summer and heading into fall. Where did the time go? To keep busy, I’d like to highlight some exciting upcoming events for you to add to your calendar.
On September 12, Hovde Properties is hosting our chapter for a luncheon and property tour of their newest property, Lamphouse, located in the fast growing Waunakee. The Lamphouse is a beautiful mixed-use development consisting of 103 apartments and commercial retail space. Property tours have been popular events for our chapter and we hope to see you at the Lamphouse.
September is an important month for IREM on a national level. The 2019 IREM Global Summit is being held September 23-26 in San Francisco. The Global Summit gives real estate managers the opportunity to learn about the newest developments in real estate management as well as network with managers from around the world. I’m excited to be attending this event on behalf of IREM Madison Chapter 82 and look forward to sharing the knowledge I gain from the event with those who cannot attend.
In property management, we are constantly striving to secure new leases for our properties and we can always use a little help. On October 17, join us for a Leasing Seminar with Leasing Leah. Leah is skilled in many leasing areas and will present to us on the topics of social media engagement, model presentation & closing techniques. Resister today at www.iremmadison82.org and use the knowledge you gain from Leah to make an immediate leasing impact at your property.
On November 8th, Danielle Grimelli from CoStar Group is scheduled to speak at our November Luncheon Meeting. Danielle will be providing information & insight on the state of the market and economic outlook for Madison. There will also be an open forum discussion so bring your questions.
In addition to attending events, I encourage you to check www.irem.org periodically as IREM is frequently offering live webinar courses that will help you acquire the skills needed for on-the-job application. IREM made a big investment in upgrading their online learning platform in 2019 and it is easier than ever to acquire the knowledge you need.
I look forward to seeing you at the next event.
