Badgers or Blue Devils?
Cap rates? Interest rates? Lease negotiations? Who cares? For some folks today, there's only one thing that matters. Where are we watching it?
You think of Fred Klein as a calm, intellectual, responsible lawyer at DLA. We know him as a rabid Duke alum ('76). And it runs in the family—this is Fred with son Sam ('11) as a mascot his freshman year.
Yikes, is that Geoff Kieffer on a public street this morning outside his office at PM Realty? Yes, a not-so-secret Wisconsinite.
We know who Konterra Realty president (and Duke guard '73-77, with victory fist above) Tate Armstrong is rooting for tonight. And other Dukies like Beacon's Jeff Kovach, Tishman Speyer's Scott Franklin, Boston Properties' Katie Yuergens, Wells Fargo's Christopher Jordan, StonebridgeCarras' Doug Firstenberg, Cushman's Josh Krieder and CBRE's Mark Mallus.
This may be a Badger cap resting peacefully this morning in the office of Eastdil's Michael Zelin, but come tonight we believe he will be waving it frantically at a TV, or perhaps throwing it high in the air at the end of the game. Other Wisconsin die-hards? HFF's Andrew Weir, Blake Real Estate's David Bender, CBRE's Andrew Felber, Bisnow's own Elliott Bisnow (who we believe was actually VP of the Student Athletic Council once upon a time), Oak Point Investors' Brian Berry, and the aforementioned Geoff Kieffer who has a bet with Mark Mallus for drinks and dinner. Not just a dollar, we asked? "Of course not," Geoff replied. "This is serious."
