Tim Lawlor – A Look Ahead
As we head into 2020, it will be an important year for the commercial real estate community as we continue to enhance services offered to our St. Louis Commercial membership as well as advocate for policy that benefits our association.

Specifically, the association’s priorities include continuing its advocacy efforts on both the local and national level to ensure positive economic development for the region, further refining its commercial contracts and forms, and the development of a formal long-term strategic plan for the commercial division. 

It is also extremely important to have a competitive commercial industry database option for all commercial brokers in the St. Louis marketplace which we now have with the St. Louis Commercial Data Systems (STLCDS) powered by Catylist. We will be focused on ensuring that Catalyst remains a long-term, viable solution for our community of St. Louis Commercial REALTORS ® to utilize and reference as their commercial data listing resource.  

I look forward to serving you as the 2020 Commercial Division President.
