Accel Commission Advance Attends 2018 Real Deal Real Estate Showcase & Forum

Hands holding a sold house.

Accel Commission Advance attended The Real Deal’s 11th Annual New York Showcase and Forum on May 14th, 2018 at the Metropolitan Pavilion. The forum is considered to be a big event in the real estate community for both residential and commercial. 2018 was no exception as “thousands of investors, buyers, brokers, financiers, developers, and high-end consumers convened for a day of networking, deal-making and experiencing first-hand dozens of new development projects and real estate products and services.”

This event was an opportunity for panelists to discuss the industry and network with other real estate professionals. Some of the panelists included Bess Freedman, Co-President of Brown Harris Stevens, Diane Ramirez, Chairman and CEO of Halstead, and Ziel Feldman, Chairman and Founder of the HFZ Capital Group. The panels dealt with current issues impacting the real estate industry as well as topics that are anticipated to soon appear on the horizon. The following panels were held at the 2018 Real Deal Forum:

  • Union vs. Nonunion building: Exploring the future of construction in NYC
  • New development frontiers: Which areas and types of projects are NYC’s next hot ticket?
  • Talking Town with Andrew Heiberger
  • Residential’s silver linings playbook: Amid heavy discounting and buyer uncertainty, how billions in deals are still getting done
  • Changing Commercial: Looking at the shifting strategies of commercial brokers and brokerages amid a slower market

Exhibitors like Street Shares and UN Federal Credit Union, Rentlogic, and others were also in the building showcasing their services and products that help realtors do their jobs. Like the taxi industry, real estate is dealing with its own kind of disruption and events like these help professionals in the industry understand the kinds of problems they have to keep in mind. It also provides a forum for attendees to share their experiences and knowledge with others on what they are seeing on the street.

Accel Commission Advance provides funding to residential real estate agents and brokers on their expected commissions.
