Feb 2nd UCLA Event Photos and Video

To all who registered for and/or attended our event last week, thank you for coming. If you were able to attend, we hope you found it valuable.

If you are interested in the photos that were taken of the event, please click here.

With more than 230 people present, it was our largest event yet. We held our first event six years ago and it has grown organically ever since. The unique value proposition for this event series is the high quality networking and educational opportunity combined with the very low registration fee ($15 for pre-registration or $20 at the door). The fact that beer, wine and appetizers are included in the price is also popular with participants.

For those of you who were unable to attend, or would simply like to listen to the discussion again, the UCLA Ziman Center was kind enough to record the event this year. We plan to post this video within the next week, so please check back on this blog for that link.

If you have suggestions for making the event even better next year, or would like to reach us for any other reason, we would love to hear from you. Please email Kari Burns at kburns@stndcap.com.

Our February 2 Event is only three weeks away!

Please join us for an evening of networking and stimulating discussion among noted real estate investment experts in our region. Our latest co-sponsor is GlobeSt.com, a leading web-based publication serving the real estate investment industry. Both GlobeSt.com and the Daily Journal currently have senior editorial staff on our registration list in anticipation of a newsworthy back-and-forth dialogue among our panelists. The event starts at 6:30 p.m. with an hour of networking, wine, beer and hors d'oeuvres, with the panel discussion going from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Questions and answers and the event will conclude at 9 p.m. Pre-registration is just $15 with a major credit card.

What makes our event different and why did we attract almost 200 people last year?

I think our event has three special qualities that set it apart: (1) great panelists who are unusually candid about what is happening behind the scenes in the real estate investment market; (2) a low price and excellent value, thanks to our generous sponsors; and (3) a collegial atmosphere in which the speakers are more accessible than usual. Our event is not set up to earn a profit…it is designed to build community and provide a venue for all of us to become better investors by tracking a group of experienced real estate pros through the ups and downs of the real estate market cycle.

Please feel free to call me directly if you have any questions about the event, or need help registering, or if you have any special requests or ideas to make our event better. I look forward to seeing you on February 2.
