Wed 5th Sep – Commercial Property Opportunities and a Funder’s View on Property Development

This meeting will cover both the commercial property market and trends in property development, providing you with the chance to learn not only about the opportunities associated to commercial property (which there are a number of), but also what is a funders view on property development, covering key points such as structuring, how to access funds, what is out there in terms of projects and more.

The world of commercial real-estate offers a number of benefits over that of its residential counterpart, and a number of risks as well! If you would like to get an understanding of what markets, trends and opportunities exist in the commercial real-estate arena then this meeting will be a great opportunity to explore these options. One such options is to develop a commercial site, and that takes a lot of capital and finance, not to worry we have someone onboard this month to discuss the best way to raise finance for a medium to large scale development, so be sure to come and share in the wisdom both of our speakers have to offer.

Our first speaker is Conray Passaris who is the licensee for Realmark Commercial and has been employed in the Commercial Real Estate industry for over 16 years. Prior to joining Realmark Commercial he was a Director at Burgess Rawson for approximately 6 years.
