We got some news during the coffee schmooze of our 3rd Annual Future of Buckhead
event yesterday at Buckhead Tower. We met with Newburger-Andes' Steve Farrar
and Metcalf Davis' Wayne Williams
, complete with an arm in a sling
. The avid biker crashed
recently, breaking his collar bone and ribs, he tells us. (We miss work when we get a paper cut so kudos to Wayne.) And it happened just as he got home from an extended ride. "Other real estate professionals who have been responsible for bike lanes and other such improvements just look at you and roll their eyes.
Marcus & Millichap came out in force yesterday, with Don McMinn, Zachary Taylor, Andrew Winston
and Tyler Fish
(here with Stafford Properties' Steve Edwards
). Don just sold a McDonalds and a Krispie Kreme at Doraville Plaza and is still marketing the shopping center for sale, he says.
We also chatted with our sponsor
Allied Barton, here with Mike Ricketts, Kevin Mueller, Ted Low
and Bill Opppenheimer
, who tell us the private security firm just inked a deal
to provide security at Daniel Corp's 12th
and Midtown project. And they have some caution for all you social media aficionados
: More companies are vetting
potential employees' Facebooks and Twitter accounts. Keep 'em clean, ya'll.
