Dear NHS Members & Friends,

Many NHS members and friends are involved in the real estate industry which along with many other sectors of the U.S. economy is in crisis. NHS Talks features an insider’s look at the commercial and related sectors from three outstanding philhellenes and good friends of the NHS.

What is the state of the real estate industry especially with commercial real estate. What strategies are available from landlord/tenant perspective, how much leeway is there with mortgage lenders and/or private equity investors.

We are joined by three real estate industry professionals each with a unique perspective, experience and successful track records that will share their thoughts on the current status of the industry and long term outlook.
