In our latest episode, we dive deep into the cascading crisis in the commercial real estate sector, a market upheaval that’s been quietly brewing beneath the surface of our economy.

Join me as I sit down with renowned real estate expert Ken McElroy to unravel the complex web of issues now plaguing office spaces nationwide. From towering high-rises standing ghostly and vacant, to the dramatic shifts in work culture post-pandemic, we explore the stark realities and the future possibilities for these once bustling centers of business.

Ken reveals the stark and often startling insights into why these buildings are emptying and what it means for investors, businesses, and the average person whose pension might be unknowingly tied up in these faltering assets. We discuss the tough questions and tough realities—like whether these spaces can be repurposed for residential use, or if they’re doomed to be demolished. The discussion spans the implications of long leases, the shifting desires of the workforce, and the broader economic impacts of these empty spaces on our cities.

This isn’t just a conversation about real estate; it’s about understanding the underlying forces reshaping our urban landscapes and financial futures. Tune in to gain a comprehensive outlook on where we stand and what could come next in this complex scenario that affects us all, directly or indirectly. This episode is a must-watch for anyone interested in the future of work, investment, and how we live in our increasingly urbanized world. Join us as we peel back the layers of this unfolding crisis to discover what the future may hold.
