The Commercial REO Brokers Association, "CREOBA" (http://www.creoba.com), the exclusive national association dedicated to assisting real estate professionals who want to provide REO services to banks and loan providers, proudly announces its two dinner meetings for: Tuesday, June 16, at the Hilton Miami Airport in Miami at 5101 Blue Lagoon Drive; and Thursday, June 18, at the Westin Tampa Harbour Island in Tampa at 725 South Harbour Island Boulevard. These events, which begin at 6:00 p.m., will feature guest speaker James Bufalino, a Commercial REO broker from Michigan. James currently has 150 commercial REO listings, including 20 new ones in the last month alone. He will discuss the BPO process, and give insight concerning work as a high volume Commercial REO broker.
"Florida is major source of activity in the Commercial REO market, which is why we have two separate dinners - in two major cities - to address the exciting opportunities before us. James Bufalino brings a lot of experience to this issue, given his credentials and ability to help fellow professionals. Also, CREOBA is the only organization of its kind that educates real estate executives about the opportunities currently available in foreclosed commercial properties. There is more than $4.5 billion in foreclosed commercial real estate last year, with that figure poised to hit $20 billion this year alone. We have a responsibility to inform our members about innovative ways to benefit from these events, while forging alliances with lenders who need our expertise. These dinner meetings are an excellent chance for attendees to learn more about these issues and meet some of the most dynamic leaders in our industry," says Ray McLaine, President of CREOBA.
