On Tuesday October 30, Jim Conrad, Managing Broker of McLennan Commercial Properties and Steve Schimmel, President of McLennan Property Management were speakers on two separate panels for REvolution 2.0.
The event was put on by Northern Illinois Commercial Association of Realtors (NICAR) and the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM). Specialists in commercial real estate were asked to speak to a wide-ranging audience on the impact of new and upcoming technologies in commercial real estate and property management. Conrad spoke on an industrial panel and Schimmel on a Property Management Panel. Both panels focused on upcoming technologies including blockchain, drone technology, artificial intelligence, and augmented reality.
Among many topics, Conrad discussed McLennan’s recent implementation of new software Buildout’s marketing platform: a tool which has been very well received by the marketplace and McLennan’s brokerage team. Steve Schimmel spoke of Property Management’s successful implementation of AppFolio, a new management platform with many benefits to McLennan’s team, clients, and tenants.
