This guy may hold a clue to why some of your Instagram friends have such a perfect life. The fact is, nearly two thirds of us feel inadequate when we compare our lives to others online …and keeping up with perfect friends is expensive and difficult – until now. I’ve found an easy solution for those who would rather avoid the trouble of actually living a perfect life: LifeFaker.com, where their slogan is more

I used to joke that I should just hire a bunch of teenagers (since they already know everything), but with today’s shortage of qualified labor maybe more…

Takeaways Podcast – NAIOP January Program: High Powered Commercial Real Estate Executives

Click here for the podcast.

TAKEAWAYS – Life Lessons Learned explores learning from the wisdom of others.

Happy New Year! We are back on site at the Southern Nevada NAIOP January Program. The title was Past Presidents – High Powered Commercial Real Estate Executives Talking About the Market.

Shawn Danoski and I sat down to discuss our Takeaways from this program. Shawn is the 2019 NAIOP Southern Nevada Chapter President and CEO of DC Building Group, a leading general contracting firm in Las Vegas, NV.

The moderator was Julie Cleaver, Vice President, Land Planning & Design with The Howard Hughes Corporation.

The panelists included:

Jay Heller – Principal with Heller Companies – Active developer of small bay industrial product

Mike Mixer, SIOR – Executive Managing Director with Colliers International Las Vegas – Broker of the largest commercial firm in the market

Mike Shohet – Chief Real Estate Development Officer with Nevada Hand – Developer of affordable housing

This was the NAIOP debut for Julie and the consensus from the audience is we want more! Julie opened the program with an update on the $100 million baseball stadium being built in Downtown Summerlin. From there she asked panelists about their businesses, personal involvement in NAIOP, and so much more!

What were some of our Takeaways?

• What is Southern Nevada doing about the shortage of affordable housing?
• Rumors like is Steve Wynn snooping around to get back in the market?
• How is the Howard Hughes Corp thinking about their master plan to someday include autonomous vehicles?

Takeaways Podcast – Recap with Reed Gottesman

Click here for the podcast.

Takeaways – Life. Lessons. Learned. explores learning from the wisdom of others.

It’s that time of year where we get to reflect and account for the year’s activities and results. When I set out to start the Takeaways Podcast I did not imagine some of the twists and turns we’d take. After twelve months and 20 episodes I am proud of what we’ve accomplished. There were many things we said we would do that we did. And there were things that we didn’t get to.

With me on this episode to recap Season 1 is  Reed Gottesman, Vice President Regional Director of Leasing at Harsch Investment Properties. Anyone who knows Reed knows that he has the unique ability to really see people. I call him a human profiler. Reed generously took the time to hear back every episode to prepare for this podcast. We turned the table and Reed was the one asking the questions. There is a lot of texture and nuance that we explored in this conversation. Reed got me to share more about my experience as a podcaster this year, how I focused on process vs. perfection, and even adversity from my past that I don’t usually talk about. We ended the show with thoughts and ideas of what to expect from Season 2 of Takeaways!

Here are just a few of the Takeaways that we discussed on this episode.

  • What were the influences that caused me to start the Takeaways podcast?
  • Takeaways of Takeaways – How has the podcast evolved? How have I evolved as a person and ‘interviewer’?
  • What were the Takeaways of each episode?

This year marks a DLI (Developing Leaders Institute) milestone for NAIOP Southern Nevada. It is our 10th Anniversary since the inaugural class graduated. We plan to host an event honoring all our alumni this summer with Chairman Greg Fuller attending as our special guest.

Currently we are busy planning for the 2020 class that is set to commence this September. We held our kickoff meeting in January where we divided the committee into subcommittees to focus on refining the class curriculum and class project. The committee plans to distribute the application for the 2020 candidates March 15, 2019.

If you know of an aspiring leader in CRE and think they would be a great fit for the DLI program, please send your candidate referrals to the Committee Chair, Sabrina Borghoff or NAIOP Southern Nevada 702-798-7194 | info@naiopnv.org for more information.
