CRE Radio & TV will be at ICSC Recon 2018 with our longest list of interviewees ever. Be sure to watch the video for times and locations and meet us live when we do each interview.

For years I’ve been hearing the death knell for Brick & Mortar real estate. “Brick & Mortar is dead or dying”. For some properties and retailers, perhaps. But I don’t see Brick & Mortar going away anytime soon. With that being said, there are, changes, “a foot”. Of course, in my five decades in the business, there has always been changes “a foot”. A few years ago, urban was all the rage, not suburban may be coming back; strip centers were dead and malls survived, now many malls have outlived their value and neighborhood centers are hot, sort of.

This year, we get to hear the experts tell me what is really going on.
