Moreover, many are planning to expand beyond this year. However, there is a fundamental change that is happening causing this weird paradigm where there are brand named box store closings everywhere while simultaneously brand named stores are opening and expanding.</p> <p class="textbox" dir="ltr">The need for enormous department stores and outlet buildings has passed. These days retail is getting smaller as the industry overall is diversifying. News of thousands of closures has led many to believe that retail is dead, but there are many retail store brands that are thriving.</p> <h6 class="textbox">Online Retail Giants Opening Brick-and-Mortar Stores</h6> <p class="textbox" dir="ltr">A big part of this phenomenon is the emergence of online retailers in the physical retail space. Amazon isn’t the only online retail giant getting into brick-and-mortar. The now famous Warby Parker is on pace to nearly double its total number of stores to 100. Bonobos, Untuck, and Everlane are just a few brands that have built their reputations online and are now looking to expand into the retail space, buying up some of the 3K+ stores going up for sale this year. There are an estimated 1,700 new stores slated to open in 2018 but contrary to popular belief, many of those stores are well known brands like Zales, Best Buy, and Autozone.</p> <h6 class="textbox">Traditional Stores are Buying Up Space and Opening New Stores</h6> <p class="textbox" dir="ltr">Toys R Us closed all of their U.S. stores this year. That is after a long trend of named brand store closures including JCPenney, Sears, and Kohl’s. This year, we’ll see twice as many stores close as open, but there are many traditional retailers that will be in the latter group.</p> <h6 class="textbox">Grocery</h6> <p class="textbox" dir="ltr">Aldi’s has been expanding its presence in the U.S. for the last several years. This year, the German grocer will add approximately 180 new stores. Ultimately Aldi’s plans to operate at least 2,500 stores in the U.S. within the next 5 years.</p> <p class="textbox" dir="ltr">Perhaps it’s a sign of the times but the biggest expansion happening this year is with discount giant Dollar General. While not necessarily a grocery store, it combines both retail and grocery at discounted rates. They plan to open 900 new stores in 2018.</p> https://naielite.wordpress.com/2018/08/08/retail-is-still-thriving-these-brands-are-opening-stores/feed/ 0 41.762944 -72.737509 41.762944 -72.737509 Open naielite 2018-08-08 09:54 +00:00 2018-08-08 04:54 -05:00 http://naielite.wordpress.com/?p=231 https://naielite.wordpress.com/2018/05/10/uconn-development-opportunity/ PropertyListings commercial commercial property commercial real estate Connecticut development for sale investment land listing Real Estate Sales retail storrs student housing uconn university of connecticut windham connecticut UCONN Development Opportunity Windham, Connecticut Northridge in Windham, CT offers an outstanding development opportunity for a mixed-use project amongst a partially completed built out power center.

In this article, I have shared what it takes to be a successful Commercial Real Estate Agent and what should you be expecting from the career in this field.</p> <h6>How much will you earn?</h6> <p>In Commercial Real Estate jobs, you generally do not receive fixed salary monthly unlike any other usual jobs. Realtors usually benefit from the commissions that they receive after the successful property dealing.</p> <p>However, if you are associated with companies which provide the real estate agency services, then you might have a fixed minimum amount of income along with the specific percentage of commission you will receive. In this case, major part of the commission is taken by the company itself. Also, the bigger the deal is, that is, if you are involved in the selling of huge property then you might receive the commission around 6 months later. Although the commission payouts will be huge but there is no fixed time to receive the money. On the other hand, leasing transactions take lesser time but you will be required to wait for the lessee to offer tenancy prior gaining the complete commission.</p> <h6>What you need to study?</h6> <p>Maya Angelou, the famous American poet and civil right activist said that, “When you know better, you do better.” Hence, getting educated is the first step to step into any career. Moreover, to get a license to deal in commercial real estate properties, you are required to complete suggested credit hours and compulsory courses. There are several universities and colleges that offer Bachelor’s degree in real estate which would help you to succeed in the field. Furthermore, besides having formal education or degree, a good realtor must have the sufficient knowledge regarding global economy, marketplace, and all the related domains. <span style="color:#333333;"><strong>First you “Learn” and then you remove the L – Mohit Manke.</strong></span></p> <h6>What personal qualities and skills you must have?</h6> <p>Initially, experienced individuals used to suggest that to be a successful realtor, one must have the qualities of a good salesmen. This is because they have to negotiate and convince the buyers to purchase what they have to offer.</p> <p>However, things have changed now and it is said that the realtors must be more of a <em>matchmaker</em>. They must be sincere, have integrity, and must ensure that their customers keep visiting several properties until they fall in love with one. Then, the realtor has to act like a wedding planner by further completing the process.</p> <p>Moreover, to be a successful Real Estate Agent, one must be confident and should not hesitate to socialize. They must take steps to do networking and introduce themselves in an impressive manner whenever they get the opportunity. Last but not the least, realtors are supposed to be patient and persistent.</p> <p><span style="color:#993300;"><strong>Patience, Persistence, Confidence! </strong></span></p> <h5>Why Join NAI?</h5> <div class="jetpack-video-wrapper"><iframe class='youtube-player' type='text/html' width='560' height='315' src='https://www.youtube.com/embed/ltjvbloy4aw?version=3&#038;rel=1&#038;fs=1&#038;autohide=2&#038;showsearch=0&#038;showinfo=1&#038;iv_load_policy=1&#038;wmode=transparent' allowfullscreen='true' style='border:0;'></iframe></div> <p><span style="color:#993300;"><strong>Email your resume to info@naielite.com to schedule an interview!</strong></span></p> https://naielite.wordpress.com/2017/08/28/move-shape-your-city-with-a-career-in-commercial-real-estate/feed/ 1 city sitter naielite 2017-08-28 15:34 +00:00 2017-08-28 10:34 -05:00 http://naielite.wordpress.com/?p=144 https://naielite.wordpress.com/2017/07/10/cre-summer-survival-10-best-practices-during-the-slow-sales-season/ Topics Agent Broker Broker Life business careers Commercial Agent commercial real estate Connecticut CRE for sale job making money office Real Estate Agent Real Estate Sales Realtor realty Sales Sales Job Sales Tips Success Summer Summer Sales Summer Success Summer Survival Survival Tips CRE Summer Survival 10 Best Practices During the Slow Sales Season Mon, 10 Jul 2017 16:49:17 Z https://naielite.wordpress.com/2017/07/10/cre-summer-survival-10-best-practices-during-the-slow-sales-season/#respond naielite <h6>10 Best Practices During the Slow Summer Sales Season</h6> <p><strong>1)</strong> <strong>Keep the Momentum</strong> Go<strong>ing!</strong> Do more site visits.

Mon, 05 Jun 2017 15:46:56 Z https://naielite.wordpress.com/2017/06/05/meet-our-summer-2017-interns/#respond naielite <p>As we progress through our work year here at NAI Elite, we are lucky enough to get a new batch of hard-working, incredibly intelligent, and fresh minded new interns each season. This summer should be even better in that one of our interns, Richard Kaelin of Longmeadow, Massachusetts, is a Licensed agent in Connecticut and will be able to work on deals as a Broker in Training, while he completes his degree in Civil Engineering at The University of Connecticut. Not to be out shined, Max Chipouras will be representing Trinity College and the Trinity Bantams; As a star running back for the team, Max helped the team achieve an undefeated record in 2016!</p> <p>As interns at <span class="caps">NAI</span> Elite, Max and Rich will learn the fundamentals of Commercial Real Estate while assisting the team in researching properties, collecting market data, business development, reviewing financial documents, and researching potential investment opportunities during the Summer of 2017.</p> <p>We are delighted to have them as a part of our team and look forward to a successful and productive season.</p> <a href='https://naielite.wordpress.com/2017/06/05/meet-our-summer-2017-interns/rich-k-headshot/'><img width="138" height="150" src="https://naielite.files.wordpress.com/2017/06/rich-k-headshot.jpg?w=138&#038;h=150" class="attachment-thumbnail size-thumbnail" alt="" srcset="https://naielite.files.wordpress.com/2017/06/rich-k-headshot.jpg?w=138&#038;h=150 138w, https://naielite.files.wordpress.com/2017/06/rich-k-headshot.jpg?w=276 276w" sizes="(max-width: 138px) 100vw, 138px" data-attachment-id="133" data-permalink="https://naielite.wordpress.com/2017/06/05/meet-our-summer-2017-interns/rich-k-headshot/" data-orig-file="https://naielite.files.wordpress.com/2017/06/rich-k-headshot.jpg" data-orig-size="3472,3776" data-comments-opened="1" data-image-meta="{&quot;aperture&quot;:&quot;5.6&quot;,&quot;credit&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;camera&quot;:&quot;NIKON D5500&quot;,&quot;caption&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;created_timestamp&quot;:&quot;1494977326&quot;,&quot;copyright&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;focal_length&quot;:&quot;50&quot;,&quot;iso&quot;:&quot;400&quot;,&quot;shutter_speed&quot;:&quot;0.008&quot;,&quot;title&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;orientation&quot;:&quot;1&quot;}" data-image-title="Rich K Headshot" data-image-description="" data-medium-file="https://naielite.files.wordpress.com/2017/06/rich-k-headshot.jpg?w=276" data-large-file="https://naielite.files.wordpress.com/2017/06/rich-k-headshot.jpg?w=942" /></a> <a href='https://naielite.wordpress.com/2017/06/05/meet-our-summer-2017-interns/max-c-headshot/'><img width="150" height="114" src="https://naielite.files.wordpress.com/2017/06/max-c-headshot.jpg?w=150&#038;h=114" class="attachment-thumbnail size-thumbnail" alt="" srcset="https://naielite.files.wordpress.com/2017/06/max-c-headshot.jpg?w=150&#038;h=114 150w, https://naielite.files.wordpress.com/2017/06/max-c-headshot.jpg?w=300 300w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" data-attachment-id="132" data-permalink="https://naielite.wordpress.com/2017/06/05/meet-our-summer-2017-interns/max-c-headshot/" data-orig-file="https://naielite.files.wordpress.com/2017/06/max-c-headshot.jpg" data-orig-size="5147,3927" data-comments-opened="1" data-image-meta="{&quot;aperture&quot;:&quot;4&quot;,&quot;credit&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;camera&quot;:&quot;NIKON D5500&quot;,&quot;caption&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;created_timestamp&quot;:&quot;1495052969&quot;,&quot;copyright&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;focal_length&quot;:&quot;50&quot;,&quot;iso&quot;:&quot;640&quot;,&quot;shutter_speed&quot;:&quot;0.016666666666667&quot;,&quot;title&quot;:&quot;&quot;,&quot;orientation&quot;:&quot;1&quot;}" data-image-title="Max C Headshot" data-image-description="" data-medium-file="https://naielite.files.wordpress.com/2017/06/max-c-headshot.jpg?w=300" data-large-file="https://naielite.files.wordpress.com/2017/06/max-c-headshot.jpg?w=1024" /></a> <p>Find out more about the NAI Elite team <a href="http://www.naielite.com/brokers.aspx" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Here.</a></p> https://naielite.wordpress.com/2017/06/05/meet-our-summer-2017-interns/feed/ 0 naielite 2017-06-05 15:46 +00:00 2017-06-05 10:46 -05:00 http://naielite.wordpress.com/?p=109 https://naielite.wordpress.com/2017/06/01/why-millennials-make-great-commercial-real-estate-agents/ Topics baby boomers business careers collaboration commercial real estate CRE efficiency Hiring job Millennials Millennials in the workplace real estate jobs young professionals Why Millennials Make Great Commercial Real Estate Agents In with the new boom, out with the old boom.

The American workforce now has </span><a href="http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2015/05/11/millennials-surpass-gen-xers-as-the-largest-generation-in-u-s-labor-force/"><span style="font-weight:400;">more Millennials </span></a><span style="font-weight:400;">than baby boomers. Generationally, these 20-and-30-somethings grew up during the initial tech boom and social media explosion. Their unique experience means millennials can build bridges between the old ways of accomplishing deals and the modern workflow. Millennials bring more than an ability to work a rolodex and navigate social media to the workforce. Particularly in commercial real estate, the millennial generation’s overarching attitude and love for tech equip them for success.</span></p> <h6>Millennials Embrace Technology</h6> <p><span style="font-weight:400;">Having wet their toes fording the Oregon Trail, practiced social networking on AOL Instant Messenger, and remembering when Facebook was only for college kids, millennials jump on experimenting with and adopting emerging tech trends. After all, this is the generation that moved from disc players to iPods, landlines to flip cell phones to the first Blackberry. Now that the CRE industry is catching up in terms of technological innovation, Millennials are on the forefront of the Internet of Things and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) adoption. Millennials welcome the tools that make working in CRE easier: customer relationship management solutions, automated marketing tools, and video tours. Thanks to this generation’s willingness to try new tools, the CRE industry is seeing more listings with virtual reality tours, more content marketing on new developments, and the </span><a href="https://www.ccim.com/cire-magazine/articles/reinventing-retail/"><span style="font-weight:400;">re-invention of retail spaces</span></a><span style="font-weight:400;">.</span></p> <h6><strong>Efficiency is King</strong></h6> <p><span style="font-weight:400;">The reason why millennials jump on new tech developments corresponds to the generational </span><a href="https://www2.deloitte.com/content/dam/Deloitte/global/Documents/About-Deloitte/gx-millenial-survey-2016-exec-summary.pdf"><span style="font-weight:400;">love of efficiency</span></a><span style="font-weight:400;">. Why waste time calling brokers for details when a simple text will suffice? Don’t mistake efficiency for laziness. Millennials make the personal contacts that close CRE deals, but instead of relying just on a contact database, they are more willing to work the Internet. Using their social networks, millennials have a broad reach to leverage to their advantage. They don’t want to waste their time&#8211;or their clients&#8211;looking at properties that are not the right fit. For clients that like to be in the know, millennial CRE agents use technology to keep clients in the loop via text, email, and phone. The millennial generation’s positive outlook and enthusiasm, combined with an attention to detail, make this group ideal CRE agents and brokers. </span></p> <h6><strong>Millennials Like Data</strong></h6> <p><span style="font-weight:400;">Numbers and data don&#8217;t scare away millennials. Rather, they&#8217;re interested in using the numbers to their advantage. How can they improve their processes? How much more efficient will this SaaS make them? Just look at new startups disrupting the CRE industry: many are data-based providers with a focus on using numbers to reduce inefficient workflows. The CRE industry relies on hard data to everything from justifying a leasing price to reducing time spent on rent rolls. In embracing these data tools, millennial CRE agents produce better results for their clients.</span></p> <h5><strong>No Millennial is an Island</strong></h5> <p><span style="font-weight:400;">Millennials value collaboration. In the CRE industry, the ability to work with numerous partners to close a deal is essential. Commercial property deals take time to negotiate, whether leasing, buying, or selling. Millennials are willing to do whatever they can to satisfy their clients and sign the dotted line.</span></p> <h6><strong>We&#8217;re Hiring!</strong></h6> <p>Think you have what it takes to be a Commercial Real Estate Agent?
