Today we talk with Kevin Parisi, President and CEO of Albany-based Trinity Realty Group, LLC. (TRG) about the Upstate New York commercial real estate market as well as the evolution of the retail sector in the broader sense. He is bullish on both retail and office sectors, especially in suburban and secondary markets where rents can be advantageous to allow companies to maximize profit margins. Kevin also discusses his role in TV's only reality real estate show "The Real Estate Commission" which will be airing this summer.
