“The panel's unscripted dissection of our case study elicited a steady stream of insightful take-ways for our attendees, whether they were students, recent graduates just starting out in their careers, or seasoned industry professionals" said Ted Zangari, co-creator of the case study and facilitator of the event. "It was only fitting for the Rutgers Center of Real Estate to convene such a necessary deep-dive discussion of the challenges and opportunities of distressed real estate ahead of the emerging down-cycle.”
