Touring the Market
4
The New Rules of Employment
5
Employees Are in the Drivers Seat
  • Seventy-one percent of HR Directors believe
    that there is a talent crisis within the real
    estate industry.
  • The retention of future stars, key producers,
    emerging and mission-critical leaders and core
    functional employees is the 1 priority of 81
    of U.S. real estate firms.

6
Compensation Continues to Spiral Upward
The 2007 National Real Estate Compensation Survey
of CEL Associates reveals the following base
salary range for 75th percentile office and
industrial positions
7
Other Facts
  • Overall pay increases in 2007 are expected to be
    3.7 (versus 3.6 in 2006).
  • Over 75 of firms surveyed have or are planning
    to restructure/revise their compensation plans
    (both annual and long-term) to attract, retain
    and motivate key employees.
  • There is an emerging trend to extend long-term
    incentives deeper in the organization.
  • The U.S. real estate workforce is getting
    older
  • The average age of a broker is now 46.2 years.
  • The average age of a property manager is 43.5
    years.

Data of CEL Associates Inc.

The Talent Crisis Will Continue
  • Top concerns of real estate leaders in 2007
    include
  • Leadership development
  • Recruitment compensation practices
  • Succession planning
  • Performance management
  • Restructuring of healthcare benefits
  • CEOs and HR Directors will reach out to like
    or adjacent industries for talent and ideas.
  • Locking up next generation emerging stars and
    closely monitoring employee satisfaction levels
    will be a focus of 2007 internal business
    activities.
  • Data of CEL Associates Inc.

9
Unemployment is Down
10
Coming Employment Shortages
  • By 2015 there will be 10 million more jobs
    than there will be people to fill them. We
    already have seen more jobs than job seekers.
  • Boomer retirement and generational pressures
    are already starting to produce a skilled
    worker gap.

11
Trends Succession Void
  • Nearly 60 of current CEOs plan to retire by
    2015.
  • 30 of real estate firms in 1990 no longer
    exist.
  • Only 24 of real estate firms have a succession
    plan.
  • 85 of those succession plans are for the CEO
    only.
  • 65 of those who have succession plans have not
    announced them.
  • 50 of todays brokers are not expected to be
    employed by 2015.

12
Trends Sales Are Decreasing
During the past few years, national commercial
property sales have set records. Commerci
al property sales totaled about 264 billion in
2005, a 50 increase from prior levels.
During 2006 sales totaled 310 billion, or
an 11 increase, for office, industrial,
retail and multifamily properties.
However ? Although many high-dollar
properties were sold in 2006, the number of
transactions was down from 2005. ? Also, if
one excludes privatizations, overall investment
sales activity actually slowed from the
previous year. 2007 property sales are
expected to trend downward.
Data from Real Capital Analytics
13
Sales Trends Continued
Conclusion Commercial real estate is moving
from a transactions-driven market to one that is
more operations-driven. More developers
and owners will care for existing assets,
instead of selling them.

Our Advice to You
Remember
Real estate is a marathon, not a
sprint. Balance life (work, play, family,
hobbies, etc.). Follow your dream and your
passion. It is OK to say, No. There are
always two sides to every story and
deal. Build relationships for a
lifetime. There are always opportunities.

It is what is inside the four walls that
matters most. If youre not having funget
out. Without a vision, there is no
direction. Your brand and legacy are
important. Your core values should never
change. A setback is merely an opportunity to
recapture.
