CHICAGO-More than 400 of the city’s commercial real estate leaders are expected to attend the fifth annual RealShare Chicago Tuesday, June 5 at the Fairmont Chicago. Presented by Real Estate Media, the conference will provide information on the current state of the commercial real estate market in addition to networking and entertainment. “The goal of our events is always to provide our attendees with great information, the superb networking that you get when all of the right players are in the same room at the same time and have some fun and entertainment with it,” says Rich Kelley, RealShare conference series director.

At this year’s event, attendees will have a chance to catch up with Tim Callahan at the Special RealShare Up-Close. Callahan was former chief executive of Trizec Properties and Equity Office Properties. Michael G. Desiato, publisher and editorial director of Real Estate Media, will sit down with Callahan and discuss his new venture, Callahan Capital Partners, as well as today’s investment sales environment and what lies ahead in the next 18 months. “He really has not been heard from in quite some time and it should be an enlightening discussion as to what he is doing, what they are looking to accomplish and how he views what has gone on in the commercial real estate markets,” Kelley says.

New to this year’s event will be “Fact or Fiction.” Zaya Younan, of Younan Properties based in Woodland Hills, CA which has made several purchases of Chicagoland real estate, and a Chicago-based investor will answer a series of questions on a variety of topics from cap rates and pricing to rents and exit strategies. “A lot of times, an outside investor sees the market different than those people that are living in it everyday,” Kelley says.

The event will also feature a representative from the Chicago 2016 committee. The representative from the Chicago 2016 committee will speak on what having the Olympics in Chicago will mean for the Chicagoland commercial real estate industry and what might need to be constructed for the Olympics, Kelley says. During the luncheon, there will be “Breaking Through the Noise: A Discussion of the Potential Impact of Gross-Receipts Tax on Business and Commercial Real Estate in the Chicagoland Area.” Also, a small panel of experts will discuss what the proposed Gross-Receipts tax would mean for the business and commercial real estate communities.
