A Letter from Jose Maria Serrano, CCIM 2021 President
As your 2021 Florida Chapter President, I was asked to write a message for the Florida Focus e-newsletter and two questions immediately came to mind: what is the true purpose of the President’s message and who is the intended audience.
Prior to beginning, I want to be clear that this is my personal and humble opinion, and it does not reflect the Chapter’s view on the subject in any way. The President’s message is not to be viewed as a complex economic review on the current state of commercial market, the availability of financing for commercial development projects, volatility of today’s markets or the effects that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on commercial real estate; we have economic experts to provide direction on that and very good ones I might add!
