Close to fifty San Diego apartment owners and investors turned out Thursday night for the 2nd Annual Apartment Owner Workshop hosted by Apartment Realty Group (ARG). The event was held at the historical Cosmopolitan Hotel in Old Town Park, San Diego.
The workshop consisted of a town hall style presentation from local industry experts. Bill Exeter – Chief Executive Officer of Exeter 1031 Exchange Services – answered a variety of audience questions on how to benefit from 1031 tax deferred exchanges in today’s apartment market. Kathy Belville – Partner at the law firm Kimball, Tirey & St. John – answered landlord /tenant legal questions covering topics like new Fair Housing Laws and the rules around the handling of service animals in apartments. Doug Taber, senior associate with Apartment Realty Group was the moderator for the evening. “Our goal tonight with these fantastic speakers was to provide answers to local apartment owners about relevant topics, but also make it a fun time for them as well. I think we did that tonight. ”
The apartment owner attendees participated in vendor sponsored giveaways and were treated to a hosted happy-hour after the main presentation. Event sponsors included the San Diego County Apartment Association, Luther Burbank Savings, and Ives Insurance Services. There was no charge for the apartment owners to attend. “We don’t charge attendees because we use these workshops as just another way we try to add value to local apartment owners,” said James Carter, broker and senior managing director of Apartment Realty Group, “We’ve had such a positive response this year that we’re considering offering these twice a year.” The next Apartment Owner Workshop is scheduled for March of 2015, according to Carter.
