CHICAGO, January 13, 2020 (Newswire.com) – Nasutsa Mabwa, President of ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons, a disaster restoration and specialty cleaning franchise servicing Chicago, North Shore, and Oak Park, moderated the property management real estate panel at the RE Journals 18th Annual Commercial Real Estate Forecast Conference, Hyatt Regency Chicago.
The property management session panelists included Elena Jimenez, Property Manager, the Missner Group, Derrick Johnson, Senior VP, Zeller Realty Group, and Ken Verne, Senior VP, Bridge Development Partners. Mabwa moderated a range of property management panel topics including:
Increase of cook county and state real estate property taxes and direct effect on operating budgets, increased labor costs, lack of industry bench strength and talent to fill positions, strategies to successfully handle risk management of properties, and challenges managing different property types such as cold storage, industrial and data storage properties.
“As the demand for cold storage warehousing gains momentum due to the shift towards online grocery ordering and food prep produce, the total square footage of cold storage warehouse space in key markets is expected to grow in 2020. Property managers are dealing with very difficult cold storage warehouse risk management issues including ammonia, refrigeration, piping, and large HVAC systems in these properties. As an emergency restoration service provider, ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons is aware of these complicated building systems and prepared for potential hazards that come with managing cold storage properties.” – Nasutsa Mabwa, President
