Excellent Learning Tool With Great Content
As a CRE Broker starting out in retail/restaurant leasing, Retail Retold has been helpful in learning more about the business.
Our work may seem straightforward. In reality, it is so much more than making calls, showing space, and signing leases.
Chris does an excellent job of explaining topics like financing and non-real estate factors that influence our business. His segments offer real-world examples of the lessons I’ve learned “on the fly”.
I highly recommend Retail Retold to everyone in the business—thanks Chris!!
