Newmark continued its national BenchMarks research conference series with the fourth annual BenchMarks DC event on November 14, 2018 at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC.
A large gathering of the commercial real estate industry’s senior decision-makers heard Gregory H. Leisch, Newmark’s Senior Managing Director of Market Research, deliver a state-of-the-market overview and forecast presentation distilling trends and shedding light on the pivotal forces and issues that will affect the Washington region’s economy and commercial real estate industry in the coming years. Alexander (Sandy) Paul, Newmark’s Senior Managing Director of National Research, then conducted an exclusive one-on-one interview with the Honorable Chris Van Hollen, U.S. Senator from Maryland. They discussed economic opportunity, regional challenges, and ways in which the commercial real estate industry and the public sector can collaborate effectively. Newmark Knight Frank also proudly bestowed its Lifetime Achievement Award on Robert J. Murphy, Managing Principal of MRP Realty. Guests at the invitation-only event then adjourned to a networking reception in the museum’s famous third floor galleries.
