Multifamily Wealth Seminar Presented by Berzack Investment Property Advisors Draws Over 150 Investors
Presenters include experts in investing, law, accounting, property management, financing and insurance
STUDIO CITY, CA – Feb. 11, 2014 – Recognizing that full-spectrum guidance is critical for multifamily owners to build maximum wealth and ensure security, Warren Berzack, president of Berzack Investment Property Advisors (www.berzackadvisors.com) and a principal of Lee & Associates-LA North/Ventura, presented the group's second annual "Multifamily Wealth" seminar with a new, interactive format.
“Multifamily Wealth: Expert Q&A Panel,” held in Studio City, CA, on Feb. 6, 2014, featured a diverse panel of top professionals in real estate accounting, law, property management, financing and insurance, along with Berzack Advisors' multifamily specialists, who bring more than 100 years of combined experience as both agents and owners. The evening drew over 150 investors and soon became standing-room only, as attendees had the rare opportunity to engage directly with the expert panel on the biggest challenges they face as owners today.
The Q&A session generated spirited interaction on such how-to topics as: avoiding or easing the eviction process; choosing a broker that puts owners' interests first; maximizing proceeds on a sale; cutting expenses and increasing profits with proactive property management; designing the smartest tax-saving strategies; maximizing loan-to-value when refinancing or purchasing; and protecting one's portfolio wisely.
"The evening was a tremendous success, and the feedback has been phenomenal," said Berzack. "Our experts delivered a wealth of valuable information and guidance for owners all in one night. And it's extremely gratifying that we had a full house despite unusually severe traffic congestion from the rain, which had lots of owners traveling one or two hours or more to be there!"
The event also included a special presentation from CoStar on the current market outlook and forecast, given by Justin S. Brown, Senior Sales Director of CoStar Group, Inc.
Speakers included: Warren Berzack; Stephen Geiger, a partner of Berzack Advisors and a Lee principal; Justin S. Brown; Cindy Gray, president/partner of Moss & Company Property Management; Joseph Schneerson, owner of Shomer Insurance Agency; Nilufar Alemozaffar, attorney at law with Eviction Group; Leon Boroda, managing partner of Boroda Holm, APC; and Leo Goodwin, managing director of Epic Commercial, Inc.
"This seminar was a must for anyone who owns apartments in Los Angeles," said Mike Tingus, President of Lee & Associates-LA North/Ventura, Inc. "Warren truly assembled a first-class panel—all at the top of their fields and most in business for over 20 and 30 years. The group's candor and sincerity were also palpable and kept the room in rapt attention all night."
Attendees described the evening afterward as "so informative and engaging," "extremely helpful," "very comprehensive," and "the best seminar I have ever attended in [the] recent past."
The program, free to attendees, was held at Sportsmen’s Lodge in Studio City. It also included a dinner buffet and networking reception.
