Commercial Real Estate Expert Offers Helpful Insight into the Lucrative Industry


CHICAGO - The world of commercial real estate is thriving. According to the National Association of REALTORS, more than half of its 25,000 members surveyed in 2006 had an annual gross income of $75,000 to $249,000, with five percent grossing over $500,000 or more. However, many people who want to enter this growing field are unsure of how to get started, and the lack of guidance and information, especially in comparison to the residential real estate industry, can make breaking into this field very difficult.

In her new book, The Insider’s Guide to Commercial Real Estate, author and real estate expert Cindy Chandler provides a complete guide and step-by-step advice on how to enter and build a successful career in commercial real estate. It also is helpful to investors who want to make intelligent investment decisions.

“The commercial real estate industry has continued to do well, even as residential real estate has faced recent fluctuations,” says Chandler. “However, it can seem daunting to outsiders who don’t know where to turn for help.”

The Insider’s Guide to Commercial Real Estate takes the often-complicated concepts of commercial real estate and provides clear and concise explanations, outlining:

What to expect from a career in commercial real estate -- including the basics of getting started
The culture of the business
Contract and financing tips
Career options -- to help aspiring and new agents determine where they fit into the commercial real estate mix
Case studies -- applying real-world scenarios to the concepts
The Insider’s Guide to Commercial Real Estate (Dearborn Real Estate Education, October, 2006; Soft cover; 8 ˝ x 11; 240 pages; ISBN: 1-4195-40564) is $25.45 and available in bookstores and at, 1-800-621-9621.
