In this episode, we invite Ryan Rauner, of RealMarkets, to help discuss his story, but also where commercial real estate is today, and where it’s going tomorrow.
Ryan has over a decade of experiences supporting the buying, selling, and leasing Commercial Real Estate right here in our back yard. He entered the business at the onset of the Great Recession, and like many of us, finds himself in a similar situation today.
Our conversation spans past, present, and future – especially with the immediate impact of COVID-19 on Commercial Real Estate in Northern Virginia, but also much more.
Northern Virginia’s Commercial Real Estate market has seen a number of shifts. The proximity to metro accessible sub-markets has changed dramatically with the construction of the Silver Line, continued construction in Tyson’s Corner, and much more.
Of course, we can’t talk about the future of the market without covering Amazon’s HQ2. Ryan covers not only the impact to areas like Crystal City and National Landing, but also to the surprise of many, Herndon and surrounding areas.
We cover plenty of other items along the way, including:
Ryan’s background, life changes, and his pivotal moment in the business
Market shifts, and the why behind the rise of various sub-markets
Trends moving forward: how investors should be viewing the market
