Responsibilities at Hallmark: 
I've been with Hallmark since August of 2015.  I currently manage two retail centers, 4 low-rise office buildings and 5 community associations for a total of 372,000 square feet. 

Married with three step-children and two grandkids, ages 15 & 18.

Hidden talents most people don't know about: 
I have jumped out of a perfectly good airplane 4 times! I ran in my first, only and last half marathon; ran the Gate River Run twice and several local 5K's. I played drums in my high school marching band and can play several different instruments - flute, clarinet, bass clarinet and trumpet. 

Proud accomplishment: 
I've been married to the same man for 26 years (and they said it wouldn't last!) and I am a proud dog mom to three dachshunds - Snuggles, Cookie and Maggie.

Favorite sports team: 
College - Florida Gators.  I'm a Texan by birth so I still have a fondness for the Cowboys and the Texans. 

Guilty pleasure: 
Whenever I cruise, I purchase some piece or pieces of unique jewelry. 

Bucket List:
Take ballet lessons; travel around the United States with my husband and dogs in our RV; take enough cruises on Carnival to become a Diamond Member.

A Trump Trade in Commercial Real Estate?
By W. Alex Coley, Principal, NAI Hallmark Partners
Oaks at Southpoint is a 32,701 sq. ft. investment office building that NAI Hallmark leased to 100% occupancy and sold to an investor client. 
There have been so many articles about the "Trump trade" for investing in various assets categories ranging from U.S. and foreign equities, to debt instruments of every kind, to the volatile currencies of countries that may be affected by President Trump's policies. The question of a potential real estate play based the initiatives of the new administrative was inevitable. Among the many advantages of investing in commercial real estate, low volatility is deeply appreciated by most investors. This contrasts sharply with the immediate movements of some of the other asset classes, reminding us that real estate is more of Warren Buffet style long term value play then a day trading activity. It is clear though that certain policy decisions can affect commercial real estate returns and values. Included amongst these are tax reform, interest rates, government spending (and resultant job creation), regulation (including capital formation, lending and credit initiatives) and policies affecting inflation and the value of the dollar. While these larger macro-economic issues affect market sentiment and can translate into pricing, the longer perspective of value creation is much more a micro-economic discussion. 

Even as the rising tide may raise all ships, the real analysis is done at the local market and individual property level. A wholistic view of the key demand drivers and the long-term market and submarket demographics that are at the core of return analysis and value creation is essential. An analysis of job creation, household formation, average and median household income, and the potential for growth in these factors is necessary. Years ago, we used to have a sense or a "gut feeling" about this. Today we have access to so called "big data" that can give us granular confirmation of what we may sense. This allows us to confirm that we are investing in the top performing asset classes in the best markets before we move on to the task of acquiring and managing the best available properties.
