Ken Valach Headlines Event in Harlan Crow’s Library

A sellout crowd of NMHC Emerging Leaders were treated to a fireside chat with Ken Valach, CEO of Trammell Crow Residential, at the famed library of Harlan and Kathy Crow in Dallas.

Harlan Crow kicked off the evening inviting guests to enjoy his collection of 8,000 rare books, manuscripts, paintings and photographs documenting American history.

Gerry Hedgcock, portfolio manager of Crow Holdings Capital Partners, moderated the conversation with Valach. Valach was responsible for guiding his firm through financial crisis. In addition to that experience, he talked about risks, leadership and success, the importance of people, advice on hiring and more.

And the Winner Is...

Three of NMHC’s Emerging Leaders went head to head at the NMHC Annual Meeting last month in our version of Shark Tank.  The three- Andy Green of Tri-Bridge Residential, Cliff Chandler with Greystar, and John Gray with Lennar--each pitched a deal to a team of seasoned industry executives in attempt to claim the Young Gun mantle for 2016.

The deals included a value add deal in an affluent section of Atlanta; an alternative value add deal in Kirkland, WA and a new construction opportunity in Chicago’s Loop/Fulton Market submarket.
