New economy demands new fundamentals, vision



The Commercial Brokers Association is proud to host the 16th Annual Commercial Real Estate Insights breakfast for the commercial real estate community.

Insights is co-hosted by the Seattle Daily Journal of Commerce and Foster Pepper PLLC. It brings together experts from different external sources to review their industry’s impact on the commercial real estate sector and our economy.

This year’s speakers — Matt Hooper (Foster Pepper), Caroline King (Washington STEM) and Lisa Picard (Skanska) — are experts in three areas fundamental to our economy: technology, education and development. They bring expertise and forward-thinking initiatives to their respective industries, which will help us all in our economic growth.

Included in this supplement are profiles on our speakers. If you don’t think education, games and construction all lead to success in our commercial real estate industry, I urge you to gain from their insights. Jobs are key to our built economy and education is key to jobs. The game and technology industries are supplying thousands of new, local jobs. Jobs create commercial real estate demand. These are ancillary industries that support ours.

CBA was formed by the commercial real estate brokerage community in 1977 to create a vehicle for member brokers to share information about available commercial properties with each other. It has more than 4,000 members and a staff that researches approximately 17,000 properties that are for sale or have space for lease.

The association provides a comprehensive database on commercial real estate, with access to information on available properties, recent sales and market performance statistics. CBA members are able to provide their customers and clients with complete and accurate information about the commercial real estate marketplace.

Thank you for supporting CBA.

Tricia Deering is president and CEO of the Commercial Brokers Association.
