Real Estate Event Recap - Oct 2013

by Allison Burton, September 20, 2013

AWF has always been proud of our hugely successful Real Estate event. Our annual Real Estate event at the Rosewood Hotel Georgia this past September was no different. Thanks to the tremendous support from our community and our sponsor, Deloitte, our 2013 event was sold out weeks prior to the event!

Our 2013 speakers’ panel consisted of:

Jennifer Podmore Russell, Director, Deloitte Real Estate

Andrew Tong, Senior Vice-President, Investments, Concert Properties

Robert Bruno, Senior Vice President, Finance, Polygon Homes Ltd.

Robyn Adamache, Acting Manager, BC Market, Analysis & Research and Information Transfer, CMHC

Lorne Burns (Moderator), Partner and National Real Estate Leader, KPMG LLP

These dynamic panelists offered us intriguing insights into Vancouver’s real estate market in both the commercial and residential market space. While guests were treated to an exquisite lunch prepared by the Hotel Georgia, our moderator, Lorne Burns, encouraged discussion on real estate trends and challenged the panelists to provide their take on where they see the future of Vancouver’s Real Estate, and what they would do ‘if they had a million dollars’. With hot topics such as the further construction of the Evergreen Skytrain line and Vancouver’s Real Estate market steady climb, guests were offered the opportunity to participate by submitting their own questions.

We hope that all the guests in attendance had an amazing time at this year’s event and we look forward to seeing you in November and throughout the 2013/2014 season!
