Real Estate Development and Reuse – Learn About it and More in October’s CALED/CSU Fresno ED Certificate Program in October
Real estate development and reuse skills are fundamental to most economic development professionals. We see unparalleled interest in infill development today, which by nature has a variety of unique challenges that economic developers find themselves having to tackle. When successful, real estate development projects are often prized examples of a successful economic development program – generating not only economic growth but fiscal benefits that make for happy mayors and citizens. But, getting there can be a tough, confusing process…
RSG’s proud to be invited back for the second successive year to be the instructor on this complex topic. Over a fast-paced and energetic 90 minutes, Jim Simon will provide economic development professionals with practical and useful skills to understand the context of real estate investment across California, as well as insights into the way we provide these advisory services to our clients, using many of the same instructional techniques we deliver to our own staff.
Jim will dig through the (admittedly ridiculous) number of specialized real estate terms and acronyms and help you figure out how to effectively dialog, negotiate and succeed with prospective developers in your community. Last year, over 40 developers, public agency staff and other industry professionals came away very pleased with what they learned from this lively and engaging session.
