Recently, I attended and presented at an event in New York held by RIS Media called the CEO Exchange. While a number of critical and highly relevant topics were discussed and debated (rapidly changing consumer profiles and empowerment, government involvement/support of the real estate transaction, intellectual property ownership, for example) one of the main topics was huge lease expenses that real estate firms are struggling with and the resulting “office of the future.” One large firm discussed in detail how they had to spend $80 million in 2011 to close out leases signed in the peak of the market.
So it was with great interest that I read this article about a Florida real estate firm and how they’re changing the look and feel of the office to keep current, lower costs and still provide professional meeting and working space for agents and clients.
