HOUSTON-After incredibly successful stints around the nation, RealShare Houston, hosted by Real Estate Media Inc., makes its debut in a huge way, combining information and insight about the local real estate community in an entertaining format.

The 7 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. event takes place Nov. 8 at the Westin Galleria-Houston, with one of the highlights involving a midday candid discussion, “Inside the Real Estate Mind” between the much-admired “Mayor Bob” and Michael G. Desiato, Real Estate Media’s editor in chief.

“We’re covering all the bases someone would want,” explains Richard Kelley, director of the RealShare Conference Series for Real Estate Media. “The whole idea of it is that, in one morning, participants can see all the important people, learn from them and network from others–and be at their desks by early afternoon.”

Kelley says the growing strength and importance of the Houston real estate market made the decision to introduce RealShare locally an easy one. “For our company’s purpose, this is a great way for us to grow and make new relationships with people as well as to increase the number of contacts for our editors,” Kelley explains.

Jonathan A. Schein, president and CEO of Real Estate Media, will deliver the opening remarks. And then, it’s off to the first round of sessions. “The Great Mass Transit Debate” will delve into whether or not Houston’s mass transit system is succeeding in the oil-and-gas, car-loving city–and if it can and should be expanded, or left alone.

A RealShare favorite at other stops–the Town Meeting–will focus on the state of the local market: demographics, economic recovery and the impact of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita on the local multifamily and retail sectors.

The concurrent morning sessions will feature 14 experts on topics like investing capital in Houston real estate, exploding demographics and its impact on upscale retail development, reduced multifamily inventory and the boom in condo conversions.

The afternoon sessions will provide fodder and food for thought on topics like TICs and 1031 exchanges, offering a glimpse into how the capital flow from the West Coast is impacting the Greater Houston region; the slow-but-steady office market recovery; updates on debt and equity capital markets; and “how to’s” for funding acquisitions and development.

RealShare Houston concludes with a fascinating, interactive group roundtable luncheon, allowing participants to participate in “theme” tables and discuss topics of interest–downtown leasing and investment, equity market updates, property tax, transportation, retail leasing, cost segregation and SEIU versus office building owners.

Though it’s RealShare’s first visit to Houston, Kelley points out the local enthusiasm, overall, has been very positive. “The feedback so far has been good,” he says. “I think people are interested in seeing the inside of the real estate experts’ minds.”
