Consolidation the Focus of the Next "Great CRE Debate," November 17

Host Rod N. Santomassimo of The Massimo Group to moderate free webinar discussion
of "Independent vs. National" brokerages at  1 p.m. Eastern

CARY NC (November 12, 2015) - For commercial real estate brokerages, is a bigger firm always better? Even as mergers seemingly are announced daily, other successful brokerages adamantly remain independent. The advantages and opportunities of each path will be discussed by professionals from leading national and nationally ranked independent firms at Massimo Group Founder and President Rod N. Santomassimo's next live webinar, "The Great CRE Debate: Independent vs. National," to be held Tuesday, November 17, 2015, at 1 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
     Representing the independent brokerage firms will be: Ed Hanley, President and Founder, Hanley Investment Group, Irvine, Calif.; Ron Koenigsberg, President, American Investment Properties, Garden City, N.Y.; and Terry Moore, Principal, Apartment Consultants Inc. (ACI), San Diego. The views of national brokerage firms will be given by F. Bruce Lauer, Vice Chairman at Cushman & Wakefield, Tampa; Connor Tamlyn, Senior Associate, CBRE, Houston; and Allen Buchanan, Principal, Lee & Associates, Orange, Calif.
     "This is an outstanding group of professionals, whose companies have opted for verydifferent growth strategies," says Santomassimo, also the author of the best-selling "Brokers Who Dominate" and "CRE Teams Built to Dominate." "I'm looking forward to leading a lively debate regarding the logistics, theories and practices each firm has implemented to achieve its success."
     The webinar will last for approximately one hour. Participants must register here in advance, as space is limited. 
     Santomassimo founded The Massimo Group in 2008 to provide a formal program of personal coaching to commercial real estate brokers of all levels of experience, and has recently expanded the company's services to include consulting on customized solutions regarding recruitment, hiring and management; staff restructuring; and succession and acquisition strategies. In addition, these services are now offered beyond the brokerage community to property management, mortgage brokerage and other real estate-related companies. The firm's clients include representatives from a majority of the most successful companies in the business, including CBRE, Colliers, Cushman & Wakefield, Grubb & Ellis, JLL, Lee & Associates, Marcus & Millichap, and many more regional and local firms. 
     Earlier this year, the firm introduced Massimobile, a private app for clients that works with their proprietary diagnostic, goal and pipeline tools. In addition, Santomassimo and real estate thought leader (and Massimo Group coach) Bo Barron recently launched Massimo University, an online platform offering high-impact courses specific to the CRE industry and focused on building personal and team business.
