    A crucial moment for real estate to showcase leadership in driving change...

    Emerging Trends in Real Estate® 2021 highlights the trends shaping the real estate industry. The report, which includes proprietary data and insights from more than 1,600 leading real estate industry experts, explores how COVID-19 accelerated many existing trends like retail footprint reductions, spawned new ones such as an increased focus on social justice and health and wellness, and slowed the appeal of big cities.

    Following the Emerging Trends Presentation, given by Christopher Ptomey, executive director of ULI's Terwilliger Center, is a panel of local experts will discussing trends and observations specific to Colorado markets.

    Please join us for this well-respected and information packed annual program, taking place in a virtual format this year. Copies of the Emerging Trends report are also offered virtually.



    Chad Brue

    CEO and Founder, Brue Capital Partners

    Chad Brue has been in the commercial real estate industry for 17 years. After beginning his real estate career at Grubb & Ellis Company, Chad was recruited to CBRE - a Fortune 500 company and the world’s largest commercial real estate services firm – to form the company’s Colorado Private Capital Group (PCG). Chad expanded the group’s market share in Colorado from near zero to over 25% in just three years, personally transacting on over $1 billion of commercial real estate. Shortly thereafter, he was promoted to Managing Director of PCG nationally, overseeing 180 brokers in 21 markets. During his five-year tenure as the head of PCG, he expanded PCG’s reach into 54 markets across the US and Canada consisting of over 350 brokers and staff. At the peak, his team traded $6.2 billion in commercial real estate in a single year and generated over $100 million in annual revenue to the firm. In 2008, Chad was promoted to Senior Managing Director making him the youngest person at CBRE to hold that title worldwide. In 2011, Chad started Brue Capital Partners to acquire, develop and manage commercial real estate properties in Colorado. Since forming BCP, Chad has acquired or developed over $200 million in office, industrial, multi-family, and golf course communities. In 2015, Chad was asked to present at ULI's Spring Conference to the IOPC-Silver Council by invite of Chris Hartung (Lazard Asset Management), Seth Wolkov (Madison Companies) and Kevin Shannon (CBRE) and again at ULI's Fall Conference to the RDC-Gold Council by invite of Nicole Ament (Brownstein Hyatt Farber) and Gerry Engle (Meriwether Companies).
