Jan 10, 2018

What can you expect from the CRE market in 2018? We gathered some of our leading brokers to provide insights on what the market holds for a variety of asset classes as well as key factors that impact our industry.

Senior Vice President Andrew Somple, SIOR, on Changing Client Needs

“In my decades in the real estate business, I have seen substantial changes take place and I believe 2018 will mark a shift in the role of real estate brokers towards a more consultative role. Today, more than ever, brokers are looked at as not just negotiators and dealmakers but trusted authorities on macroeconomic trends, asset types and development opportunities. I expect this changing of roles to continue and I know each member of the NAI Hanson team anticipates leveraging our decades of experience and market knowledge to better respond to the changing needs of our clients.”
