Inside this Issue – Spring 2015

Welcome to the spring 2015 issue of the S.E.C. Observer. In this issue, John Brennan, S.E.C., CCIM, the 2015 president of the Society, shares his theory that “benefits rule.”

Ernie Eden, S.E.C., CCIM, encourages you to “invest in your multi-family properties so that you may increase your returns.” Additionally, William E. Stonaker, S.E.C., CCIM, explains why it is beneficial to “lease with a purpose—not just to fill space.” Hunter Quistgard, S.E.C., proposes that you consider a “junior carry back instead of a lease option.”

Wesley Dingler, S.E.C., provides us with an update of the S.E.C. Education Foundation’s plans for 2015. The “Society News Briefs” section includes information about our upcoming meeting in Omaha, Nebraska. Additionally, this section includes a press release announcing that the CCIM Foundation has honored Colby Sandlian, S.E.C., CCIM, with a scholarship fund; and a press release that announces Alex Ruggieri, S.E.C., CCIM, received the Partnership Circle Award. Congratulations to Colby and Alex!

Rod M. Stewart, S.E.C., is featured in the “In the Spotlight” of this issue. “The History Files” section contains an article about “creating a lease for hypothecation” by Cliff Weaver; and C. Charles Chatham encourages real estate brokers to be leaders and enhance their image.
