“Brian’s experience in the industry comes through in his ability to so effortlessly put together such successful events. He is extremely professional, and communication flowed smoothly on all suggestions and recommendations.

“As an analyst, I pride myself on being up to date with the most recent trends and information within our industry. I felt that the State of the Net Lease market webinar content was extremely useful and well put together. The panelists had a variety of backgrounds that allowed me to learn more about our industry in a more macro way. I would say I gained more of an understanding about the overall market, the players and the transactions. I also thought the panel did very well with the questions that were asked in the Q&A portion of the webinar.”
