It’s Just a Matter of Time

I attended a Panel Discussion Moderated by Randy Getz of CBRE at the Sutter Club in Downtown Sacramento this week.  Chuck Trainor, Managing Partner of Trainor Fairbrook, introduced David Taylor.  David Taylor humbly recounted his first development projects.

Sacramento’s Big Man is just getting started.

How About Those Sacramento Kings?  The Kings won last night without their Big Man, Cousins.  Frankly, they looked like a whole new team, with contributions from everyone, with six players in double digits.  Willie Cauley-Stein had a career high 29 points.

While the Sacramento commercial real estate market seems white-hot, with property flying off the shelf, most buyers of commercial properties (not to be confused with multifamily) are deliberate and sensible. Recent sales in Midtown and Downtown certainly show that values are up, and the sales demonstrate that the Arena effect is more than hype, it
