Commercial Real Estate Marketing Program - Maxfield Real Estate Group

James Maxfield, Lake County commercial real estate broker (Maxfield Real Estate Group, LLC) recently attended the annual summer marketing session and seminar sponsored by the Ohio Commercial Real Estate Exchange Association (OCREA) in Columbus. OCREA is affiliated with the Ohio Association of REALTORS and provides periodic education and real estate marketing programs throughout the year.

The one-day seminar (given by Robert Giniecki, CCIM, SEC from New York) reviewed the procedures for completing tax-deferred exchanges and the benefits to owners of investment property in using the IRS tax-deferred exchange rules to pyramid their real estate equities and increase their rates of return.

The following two-day marketing session was moderated by Jim Wilson, CCIM from Florida and attended by approximately 60 REALTORS who represented investment property owners of apartments, strip centers, industrial and office properties, golf courses, campgrounds and mobile home parks, vacant land, single-family rentals, and some businesses, such as manufacturing companies, restaurants, and motels.  The brokers also represented investors with cash looking to purchase investment properties.
