ULI Chicago, DePaul Real Estate Center Slate Webinar on Industry Sentiment 

The Real Estate Center at DePaul University and The Urban Land Institute Chicago District Council are preparing to release the findings of a Chicago 2022 Mid-Year Sentiment Report as headwinds increasingly are gathering momentum in the economy and commercial real estate industry. In conjunction with the release of the report, The Real Estate Center and ULI will host a free webinar at 9 a.m. on Thursday, July 21.  

That program will feature a keynote overview presented by Jim Shilling, George L. Ruff Endowed Chair in Real Estate Studies. Shilling will be followed by a panel of experts that will be moderated by Richard Sinkuler, the newly appointed Douglas and Cynthia Crocker Endowed Senior Managing Director of The Real Estate Center at DePaul. 

The featured panelists include Mary Ludgin, Heitman; Keith Largay, JLL; Steven Weinstock, Marcus & Millichap; and Hugh Williams, MK Asset Management | MK Asset Brokerage and Sterling Bay. 

“There is nothing that can be thrown at us that we cannot solve, as long as we put in the time to understand the issues, and work together to resolve them,” said Sinkuler.
