SV33: New York and Relocation Trends w/ Esther Reizes-Lowenbein

One silver lining from the COVID pandemic is that both families and companies were forced to explore new ways to innovate and become far more efficient than they have in the past. Unimportant meetings became the emails they should have been in the first place. Commutes went away for most of the US. Eventually, after a couple quarters of this, companies all over the country last year were taking a good long look at all the overhead that they were getting along just fine without, but was once deemed critical expenses.


My guest today examines the current migration of families and companies out of New York City. We discuss what’s behind it, what it looks like, and what’s ahead. Esther Reizes-Lowenbein is a real estate expert in the New York area, but also operates in commercial investment real estate nationally.
