A Message From President Bob Rand, CCIM

Welcome to 2021! It is great to turn the page on 2020 and begin a new year. “Back to Business” is an appropriate theme for the coming year. It is an exciting time in the commercial real estate industry and the coming year brings opportunity for brokers as well as our affiliate partners. “Back to Business” also applies to organizations like CFCAR that experienced extreme challenges due to the pandemic. Join me in expressing sincere thanks to 2020 President Paul Partyka, CCIM, NAI Realvest, and his 2020 Board of Directors for the leadership, time and hard work put in over the past twelve months. Turning back the clock to January 2020, no one could have imagined the course this year would take. Despite the challenges presented by a partially open economy, with Paul’s leadership, CFCAR is stronger today than it was year ago. Special thanks also go to Carol Tanner, CCIM, Convergent Commercial, for her exceptional contributions over the past year.

As we embark on a new year, I am honored to serve as CFCAR President for 2021. CFCAR presents opportunities for commercial real estate professionals to sharpen their skills through education, networking, and above all, the opportunity to CLOSE MORE DEALS. We view Central Florida as one market – comprised of the ten counties represented by CFCAR. This organization is a conduit that breaks down geographic boundaries within Central Florida connecting and educating CRE professionals. In the coming months, look for CFCAR networking events as well as professional development opportunities throughout Central Florida.

Calendar year 2021 will bring a wind down of the pandemic and the opening and rebuilding of sectors within our industry that have been so negatively affected by COVID. Hopefully, it’s “Back to Business”. We hope to see ZOOM meetings become an option - not a necessity. Restaurants and other meeting places will open and work toward prosperity. The tourism and hospitality industry, that is such an integral part of Central Florida, will begin its recovery. Retail and office, in many respects, will reflect, assess, and begin its renaissance. The multifamily and industrial sectors will continue to grow and reach new heights.

I am excited for the coming year. With a Board of Directors stacked with talent, leadership, and experience, collectively, we look forward to serving the membership of this great organization and the Central Florida commercial real estate community.
