After a year of growth and a bright future ahead for Asset Living’s multi-family portfolio, a large team of their experts had boots on the ground in San Diego at the National Multi-Family Housing Council’s (NMHC) annual conference last week building relationships with key influencers within the multi-family space.
This conference was the first to be held in San Diego since the pandemic began in 2020 and was well-attended by serious decision-makers in the industry discussing development, financing, and operating in all of the Asset Living markets.
To kick off day one, the full Asset Living team had the opportunity to network and develop new West Coast client relationships while being onsite at the Aviara Golf Course in Carlsbad, CA. In the evening, Asset Living held a larger networking event with a mix of approximately 30 clients and colleagues at Petco Park to connect with those relationships over baseball while discussing various business topics and opportunities.
The next day, the Asset Living team met with Apartment Life and later connected with current clients, developers, lenders, and brokers. At the NMHC Conference, Asset Living was frequently brought up as an industry leader in accessing federal, state, and local funding for clients. In addition, single-family “build to rent” was a popular topic given the increase in demand from the suburbs paired with the increase in rent costs.
The team also learned that staffing throughout the sunbelt states remains a challenge for industry leaders (and this will likely continue to be a challenge throughout 2021), but Asset Living is achieving these opportunities due to their ability to recruit and retain the industry’s best and the brightest talent.
If you missed the 2021 NMHC Conference, recordings are available to members who register and early registration for the 2022 NMHC Conference will become available on July 22, 2021, via the NMHC website.
