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?
