Webinar: Managing Properties In The Age Of Coronavirus


To cut through the frightening news surrounding the novel coronavirus, Bisnow will be hosting a free webinar for property managers on how to face a pandemic with a cool head and tackle real-world real estate issues.

  • Keep their businesses — and their tenants’ businesses — up and running.
  • Review lease agreements in case of business disruptions.
  • Create healthy, hygienic environments.
  • Communicate effectively with residents and tenants.
