Allen Matkins “View From the Top” Hosts 650 Top Real Estate Professionals


Speakers at Allen Matkins fourth annual View from the Top last week expressed cautious optimism in the real estate market’s future at Monday’s crowd of 650 commercial real estate professionals. With the Federal Reserve committed to holding interest rates extremely low, investors are looking to commercial real estate as a good investment that should return an average of 7% ROI, or three and one half times the 10-year treasury bond.

The debt markets remain liquid but volatile as investors are returning to the market with activity in key locations like San Francisco, Seattle and West Los Angeles. The sustained low interest rates will keep the economy from a double dip recession and investors will be looking to deploy their capital in commercial real estate due to the fear of eventual inflation.

“Deals are getting done because institutional and high quality investors are grabbing up buildings that have solid financials in the growing markets,” said Tony Natsis, partner and chair of the firm’s real estate practice group. “Prices will start to increase where there is demand but some markets, mostly outside California, will take years to recover from the latest downturn.”

Michael Van Konynenburg, president of Eastdil Secured, was the keynote speaker and was joined by other noteworthy real estate professionals. Other speakers at the event included: M. Eli Khouri of Kilroy Realty Corp; Victor J. Coleman and Alex Vouvalides of Hudson Pacific Properties; Jeff Dinkin of Regent Properties Inc; and David S. Bingswanger and Kevin J. Hayes of Lincoln Property Co.
