Duane Truman
Building Engineer 

Responsibilities at Hallmark: 
I have approximately 10 properties which I am either partially or fully responsible for keeping clean, attractive, and in good repair. I either do repairs myself or work with contractors to effect repairs and oversee work and act as a liaison between contractors and the property managers. 

I was married for 27 years, which produced 2 pretty great kids, now in their 30's with 6 grandchildren between them from ages 4 to 18 years old. My son is an Army Warrant Officer with 14 years between the Air Force and Army. My daughter is trying hard to break into residential real estate, but hasn't quit her day job at a Town Center restaurant yet. She just closed her first sale. I was very fortunate 7 years ago to meet my soulmate, Kay, the most caring and thoughtful person I've ever known. We have fun together with everything we do from gardening to fishing and especially vacationing. I know (as all my friends remind me) that I'm a lucky dog.

Hidden talents most people don't know about: 
Probably cooking and woodworking. I've been cooking since I was 10 by myself, but now have to fight for kitchen time, being as Kay enjoys cooking as much as I do. 
I've been woodworking since my late teens and can build about anything I see or can imagine. I like vegetable gardening, bought my first motorcycle when I was 12 with money earned from selling our homegrown vegetables, cutting grass, and babysitting. I've taken pottery classes and enjoy making clay things on the pottery wheel...very relaxing. 

Proud accomplishment: 
Hard one. Lots of small ones over the years, lot of the same ones as most of us. I guess the two biggest, proudest for me would be getting my two challenging kids graduated from high school and building a successful public warehousing business in the 80's and 90's, which I sold in 2000.

Favorite sports team: 
I've been a Pittsburg Steelers fan ever since I watched my first Super Bowl in 1976 playing & beating Dallas. As hard as it is these days, I root for our Jags, because it's what we have. If they ever move to Orlando or elsewhere, I'm a Steelers fan again.

Guilty pleasure: 
Is appreciating a cold beer in the afternoon or some banana pudding or ice-cream with the late night news a guilty pleasure?

Bucket List:
1. Spending a couple weeks each exploring Northern California, Oregon, Washington State, and Hawaii.
2. Seeing every one of my 6 grand kids graduate high school and college. That will be 2035, making me 78, just a spring chicken compared to my dad who turned 85 a few months ago. 
3. Learn to play the guitar. Just good enough to entertain myself.

Sweeping Tax Reform Proposals Creating Suspense for CRE Investors
President Trump has been in office for less than a week but there is already speculation amongst the investor community regarding the details of his yet to be released proposed tax plan.  President Trump has been very specific about his position on certain tax policies including reducing the corporate tax rate and decreasing the number of personal income tax brackets, but fewer details have yet to emerge about other tax policies, specifically those that may affect commercial real estate.  Republican congressional leaders' tax "blueprint" that was released last summer calls for numerous changes that would impact the tax treatment of commercial real estate investments.   Potential changes to depreciation rules, carried interest taxation and deductibility of interest expense are just several of the proposed changes that could severely impact commercial real estate and how commercial real estate investments are structured.   The last major tax reform was completed 30 years ago and it had a wide ranging and long lasting impact on the commercial real estate industry. It is still too early to predict the final outcome of potential tax reform and the future impact on commercial real estate, but we will all be following and watching with great anticipation.
