LOS ANGELES-“The REIT market going forward will be healthy.” So said Jay Leupp, president of Grubb & Ellis Alesco Global Advisers, who spoke with GlobeSt.com’s Alyson Grala at Real Estate 2010 about the industry’s investment environment. REITs, according to Leupp, bottomed out in March of 2009, and the stocks have rallied since then. “Now, they are looking for opportunities.”

Leupp’s general outlook about commercial real estate is optimistic. “We are in the early stages of a three- to five-year recovery period.”
