If These Execs Weren't in Real Estate...


The panel at Bisnow's Capital Markets summit this morning had over 200 years of combined real estate experience. But where would these superstars of the industry be if they hadn't gotten into real estate? They shared their other dream jobs.

Weingarten CEO Drew Alexander: executive producer of the TV show Entourage (but he confesses he'd probably actually be a sacker at a Weingarten grocery store)

Invesco senior director Ron Miller: owner of a wakeboard/surfboard store

KKR director Paul Wasserman: some combination of teaching philosophy and stand-up comedy (that sounds like a Philosophy 101 course we could've actually stayed awake in)

Avison Young principal Darrell Betts: owner of an oil and gas company (it'd be the best way to get his own jet, per the wishes of his daughter)

First American Title VP David Crawford: a beagle breeder

Camden president Keith Oden: fly fishing instructor in Missoula, MT

Lionstone Investments CIO Glenn Lowenstein: teaching middle school English

If you missed our event, we'll share some heavy hitting analysis from our panel in Thursday's issue!
