Inside this Issue – Winter 2013

Welcome to the winter 2013 issue of the S.E.C. Observer. In this issue, Gary Vandenberg, 2013 President of the Society, dedicates his final column to the following statement: “Uncertainty Breeds Inaction—Clarity Breeds Action.”

William E. Stonaker, S.E.C., CCIM, provides invaluable insight on why it is so important to “pick the right professionals;” this article is the first of an ongoing series and relates to selecting a civil engineer. Robert W. Giniecki, S.E.C., CCIM, reports on “market trends in shopping centers and retail.” In each issue, we will feature a couple of formulas from Bob Steele’s “300 Strategies for Making Real Estate & Business Deals,” and this issue features formulas for successful brainstorming.

Leo Goseland, S.E.C., signs off as S.E.C. Education Foundation President. Harlan L. Morrison, S.E.C., is featured “In the Spotlight” of this issue, and you will learn of his distinguished career and his eventual entry into the real estate field. In the History Files, C. Charles Chatham cautions you to “make haste slowly,” and Fred Lewis clarifies the “mystique of office buildings.”
