Commercial real estate is a non-stop, exhilarating, evolving, dynamic industry — miss a beat and you’re left in the dust.
By definition, commercial real estate is any property owned to produce income. It includes office, industrial, retail, mixed-use, medical office, entertainment and educational facilities, but not residential housing. It also includes vacant land that will eventually be leased or developed.
