Hanging With Bisnow
Bisnow hosted its fourth annual Dallas State of the Market event last week, but without the help of our sponsors, we wouldnt be here. So they could schmooze with DFWs biggest CRE names, we hosted a pre-eventmeet and greetat Ocean Prime. Here are KBS Realty Advisors Rodney Richerson, Thompson & Knight partnerRay Khirallah, andHines Dallas managing directorRan Holman.

Bisnowwants to take our events to a new level byconnecting CRE professionalsin a moreintimate settingto promote more face timeby invitation only. This way, we can connect CRE professionals and strengthen relationships through hosting high-level private parties. Joni says to watch for ournew lunch and cocktail seriesthat will roll out soon.

KPost Companys Scott Bredehoeft and Denise Hamlin rubbed elbows with Chicago Titles Dennis Noebel. To continue our mentor theme, Scott tells usgo-to guys in DFW CRE are Colliers'Tom Pearsonand KDC'sToby Grove. Both are extremely engaged and knowledgeable, always gracious to share their thoughts,straight shooters, and don't feel the need to over-promote what they do--their projects speak quietly for themselves, he says. "Class individuals who have stood the test of time in the CRE business." We couldn't agree more.
