Long Island City has been one of those segments of the New York City real estate market that has quietly experienced fairly broad consumer acceptance in a short period of time. This is evidenced by the large level of purchase activity over the past several years in response to new development efforts. As a result, residential support services are entering the market at an impressive pace.
Located in Queens, Long Island City has signifiant linkage to Manhattan. The new residential condominium developments in Long Island City are generally selling for roughly half the price per square foot of similar product in Manhattan and yet is only a few minutes away from Manhattan via subway. (That’s how I plan to get there tonight.)
At 6:30 this evening, Dottie Herman, CEO of Prudential Douglas Elliman and I will first speak at The Powerhouse Condominium and then at 7:30 we will speak at L Haus Condominium to the brokers attending the event. Her firm’s New Homes Development Group is handling the marketing of both developments plus a nearby property that is already being marketed called The Foundry and they are included in the event as well.
Should be fun.

The upcoming Inman Real Estate Connect San Francisco conference is a must see event for real estate professionals, plus it is in San Francisco, one of my favorite places. Check out the deal for bloggers.
Inman News has been touting the wide swath of speakers as:
- The Best and the brightest;
- Real estate industryâ€™s champions; and
- Industry heavyweights
Ok, ok. I get the hint. I need to lose a few pounds….
Inman Real Estate Connect is great because it attracts decision makers and innovators. I always learn
something a lot and meet many great people.
Brad, Joel, Jessica and company know how to run an event.
On Friday in the main conference venue, I’ll be participating in the last panel discussion of the conference:
When Will the Housing Market Turn?
- Alex Perriello, CEO, Realogy
- Joel Singer, EVP, CAR
- Jonathan Miller, Co-Founder, Miller Samuel
- Patrick F. Stone, Chairman, The Stone Group
Should be a great time.

I was invited to participate in the Reuters Housing Summit this week (which happened to be during my vacation and how cool is it to talk about housing when you are taking time off from work?) It was quite an interesting experience – I thoroughly enjoyed it. Each participant gets grilled for an hour by Reuters senior editors and reporters. I felt I needed another twenty four hours to address all the housing issues of the day, but alas, it was my vacation. The interviews were recorded and snippets were released as audio files.
Check out:the summit blog for more interviews and the housing section of the Reuters site.
- Salvatore Graziano, an attorney with Bernstein, Litowitz, Berger and Grossmann
- Jonathan Miller [me!] and again
- Douglas Palmer, Mayor of Trenton, New Jersey
- Pam Liebman, president and CEO of The Corcoran Group
- Nouriel Roubini, professor of economics at New York University
- Faith Schwartz, executive director of Hope Now
- Marc Dann, Attorney General of Ohio
- Jesse Jackson is president and founder Rainbow PUSH Coalition Inc.
- Bob Toll, Toll Brothers CEO
- Robert Steel, Treasury Undersecretary
- Robert Shiller, professor of economics at Yale University
- Richard Syron, chief executive of Freddie Mac
- Doug Kass of Seabreeze Partners
- Stephen Ross, CEO of Related Cos.
And to continue with the shakey market theme (supposedly) our satellite was intentionally shot down and an earthquake struck northwestern Nevada.
In other words, a good week for a vacation.

Editor Greg David invited me to participate in Crain’s New York Economic Forecast Breakfast on January 31, 2008. Crain’s New York Magazine is a great resource on the regional economy.
I participated in this function last January and thoroughly enjoyed it. I look forward to hearing what Greg and the other guests have to say (as well as enjoy a good breakfast).

Well, it was pretty flattering to be in the company of bloggers that I admire so much as panelists at Inman Real Estate Connect. Inman TV posted a clip of the panel discussion. Brad moderated the The Blogging Superstars panel. Superstars as a name is a bit over the top. There are so many great bloggers out there.
All the panelists spent some time together in the green room (it wasn’t green) before going on stage. Even though the audience was 1,000+, cameras, stage, etc. I thought the mood was pretty relaxed. Brad is very engaging as an interviewer. Teresa is a dynamo, Kevin pulls no punches, Ardell is truly innovative and Noah is
Although technology was being pushed and blogging was seen as a marketing vehicle to all real estate agents, I didn’t really agree (but I was the only non-agent on the panel). I think all agents should consider blogging for marketing their brand, but for the majority, it just won’t work. Given the time constraints, variation in writing ability and the ability to connect with the audience, its hit or miss. In addition, everyone on the stage approached blogging differently, so there is no simple template.
However, passion for our topic was what all of us clearly had in common approach. I’d almost say that there needs to be an underlying desire to put your thoughts out to the public, to the point where your friends and family ask the question: “So tell me again why you are doing this?” I think your blog’s association with your business almost needs to be an afterthought.
Here’s a photo, and yet another, and another, and another.
Guy Kawasaki, formerly of Apple Computer once defined the Internet as:
“ million people interacting with people they donâ€™t know; about topics they donâ€™t understand; for reasons they canâ€™t explain.”
Thats how blogging started for me.

One of the things I admire about Brad Inman and his Inman News is that the Real Estate Connect conferences put people together that are empowered to make decisions. Its always a refreshing experience and I have found the conferences to be amazingly productive. I have been going to the New York version, but this year I am making the trip to San Francisco (and an excuse to fly jetBlue).
Look for me as a panelist on Blogging Superstars Thursday, August 2, 8:30 a.m. â€“ 9:15 a.m with very accomplished panelists, none of whom I have ever met, but, oh yeah, I actually read and am a fan of their online efforts and link them to my site.
I am scheduled for the Meet the Leaders/ Meet the Companies program, where I get to stand at a table and hope people come up to me and ask me questions. I did that in New York last year and got to meet a lot of people one on one. A lot of fun. Thursday, August 2, 12:15 p.m. â€“ 2:00 p.m.
And lastly, I am moderating a panel of very smart people in the Innovation Tracks program on Thursday that runs on August 2, 2:00 p.m. â€“ 4:15 p.m. My panel runs from 2:45 p.m. â€“ 3:30 p.m and is called Data Mining: Information as Business Edge
