Coral Gables - January 18, 2017
The CCIM Institute Miami-Dade District hosted the event "Storms on the Horizon" with 320 guests in attendance at the Coral Gables Country Club. This annual Outlook Commercial Real Estate Conference was chaired by Paul White, CCIM.
The conference featured economist George Ratiu, Director of Quantitative & Commercial Research with the National Association of REALTORS® in Washington, D.C. Mr. Ratiu spoke about the local and national economy and expects the commercial and residential real estate industry to "continue its upward performance" this year despite Miami's large inventory of luxury condominiums. Much of the optimism is fueled by South Florida's large population growth and low unemployment rate, Ratiu said.
TotalBank was the Grand Sponsor for the 7th year, and Ten-X was the Platinum Sponsor. Ten-X also hosted a "The Night Before" party at Graziano's in Coral Gables. Ramon M. Rodriguez, EVP of TotalBank addressed the CCIM group along with Ten-X's Justin Latour and Marc Whol. Gold Sponsors included: Allied Building Inspection Services & Coconut Grove Bank.
