Dear Readers,

Here we are sailing through the first quarter of 2018 and according to Dr. Mark Dotzour, the keynote speaker at the CCIM Houston Forecast Competition, we can expect clear sailing throughout this year in terms of business and commercial real estate.

Tax cuts have a big influence on the economy and Paul Bettencourt reminds us that property taxes represent approximately 40% of total business taxes and that the property tax deadlines have moved up two weeks this year due to tax code changes. (page 26)

Keeping Up With Kristen Berkadia's McDade locks up land deals

BY BRANDI SMITH

“You can almost feel the energy bubbling up!” says the Senior Director of the Houston office. “There are lots of calls on sites, offers are flying around and deals are coming together -- and with realistic speed (which has been lacking for the past 24 months).”

Kristen McDade

If success in the commercial real estate industry is based on outlook and attitude, Berkadia’s Kristen McDade is going to have one heck of a 2018!

Throughout 2017, McDade says she felt as though she was in transition. The University of St. Thomas grad only just made the move from CBRE to Berkadia late in 2016, coming on board to lead the Land Services team. “As we started to map Berkadia’s path forward in Houston, we recognized the need for someone with expertise in land brokerage,” says Ryan Epstein, Senior Managing Director. “Kristen’s exceptional knowledge of the Houston market, robust relationships and acumen in all aspects of site acquisition make her the perfect fit for our growing team.” McDade says her first priority was rebuilding her inventory, but she noticed that buyers were slow moving. “They weren’t quick to pull the trigger and were much more cautious,” she says of buyers in the 2017 land market. “It felt very pensive to me.” Then Hurricane Harvey hit, drowning parts of the Houston market in feet of water. “That certainly threw a wrench into the mix,” McDade says. “There was a definite pause for a good three or four weeks while everyone rallied getting their home situations and property situations sorted.” After that, she says, the commercial real estate industry in Texas did what it does best: it bounced back.

10

March 2018

“It was business as usual,” says McDade. “Coming into the end of the year, there seemed to be a shift. Calls and activity increased. Sellers were ready to sell and buyers were about ready to make offers!” McDade, who is part of what is now a Houston CRE legacy, learned the ropes from her father, Bill McDade. She started her real estate career at his side as part of McDade, Smith, Gould, Johnston, Mason + Company back in 1999. For 16 years, she absorbed all she could from the man who brokered or co-brokered more than $1 billion in deals over his 57-year career. “He and I are so much alike, I wasn’t sure it would ever work,” she told REDNews in 2016. “We worked in one big office with four of us in the room: Bill, [my sister] Tricia Pogue, our admin and myself. He wanted us Ryan Epstein all close so we could hear everything and learn that way.” Bill coached her on how to be a good broker, including when to listen and when to speak. He taught his daughter to pay attention to the news and read the newspaper. ‘There is a deal in the paper every day,’ he told her.


The most important lesson she took away from her father, McDade says, was how important integrity is in this field. “He taught me to always be honest, straightforward and respectful,” she says. “As a result, clients know they can trust me.”

William "Bill" McDade

Kristen joined Bill for a time at CBRE, where she served as Vice President, specializing in brokering land transactions for buyers and sellers. Not long after he “retired” (“He’s still working from his home office,” she laughs), she made the move to Berkadia.

“Privately held, Berkadia has the reputation and capabilities to allow me to excel as a land broker with unlimited possibilities,” McDade says. “Berkadia’s core values align with my own: integrity is everything, look at the long term, people and relationships matter most and continually strive for excellence.” Picked to lead the Land Services team, she’s integral in developing the Berkadia Land Services team platform that’s used throughout the country. She’s also a member of influential groups such as the Greater Houston Partnership, Katy Area Economic Development Council, Houston Association of Realtors, CREW and CREN. Pushing two decades in the land business, her client list is now a who’s who of industry: The Finger Companies, JP Morgan Chase, SYSCO

Foods, Ersa Grae, The Welcome Group, Lehman Bros., Patriot Bank, Lincoln Property Company, Johnson Development, Mission Equities, Davis Development, Fairfield Residential, Cypress Real Estate Advisors, KKB Homes, Avanti Properties Group, Parkside Capital, Public Storage, St. Luke’s Methodist Church and Trader Joe’s. Many of those clients and others are on the hunt for property in the Houston market, McDade says. “They were there last year, but without the urgency that they have now,” she says. “They have been given the green light and they clearly do not want to be left out this cycle.” She’s seen interest from multi-family developers, particularly those who have not built in our

“For well-located corners and small sites on good roads, the activity is very strong.” - Kristen McDade

marketplace or have not for quite some time. They’re hungry for good sites with strong demographics and good schools. If detention and utilities are already sorted, that’s a bonus, says McDade. “Buyers are anxious to get to sites!,” she says. “They are all about suburban sites as the Inner Loop is pretty well covered with multi-family and condos for the moment.” Retail sites are also a hot commodity right now, according to McDade. “For well-located corners and small sites on good roads, the activity is very strong,” she says. As an example, she cites the response to a retail property in Northwest Houston that she advertised in REDNews. “Our signs went up on the property the same day and within a week we had nine offers. Some pushed well over the asking price straight out of the gate,” says McDade. “I never blasted the property. This proves that a well-located site with good shape and good size still gets people excited!” With barely a quarter under her belt in 2018, she is confident this year the land market will see the payoff that bubbled under the surface in 2017. “Your readers should keep their eyes on my ads in REDNews. We have something new every month!” March 2018

The Amazon effect How retailers are adapting to the rapidly changing environment BY BRANDI SMITH

The one constant about the retail industry is that it’s constantly changing, though experts in the field acknowledge that the current pace of change is unlike any they’ve seen in their careers. “I feel like things are accelerating right now,” says Artemio De La Vega, president and CEO of De La Vega Development, who was one of the Development & Construction panelists during ICSC’s 2017 Texas Retail Forecast. “As for the number of groups that are reinventing themselves and adapting to the changing times, it's probably the most substantial shift I've seen,” adds Ryan Johnson, co-market leader at SRS Real Estate Partners, who moderated the retail panel during the forecast summit. “That’s why it's a fun industry to work in. You have to be on top of your game. You have to know what's happening in the markets. You have to know what consumers want. That’s what I love about retail.”

The shift was a hot topic during ICSC, which De La Vega asserts has always been proactive about looking to the future. “I don't think any of us really know exactly what's coming, but we can all agree that change is coming,” he says. “We may disagree on how and what's actually going to happen, but I think we can all agree that it's going to be different.”

Adapting to Amazon A significant factor in that change has been the socalled “Amazon Effect,” the disruption caused to the traditional retail landscape by the online giant. “[On the panel,] I focused on what we're doing as it relates to incorporating elements that would help the future trend for the newer generations and what they look for,” says De La Vega. “Given millennials and other generations that are coming, their habits with the

iPhone and embracing technology are different than what we've seen in the past.” One way retailers are adapting to the increase in online competition is by offering something consumers can’t find on the internet: services and experiences. “There is more of a focus now on high-growth, serviceoriented retailers that are more internet-resistant given the retail transition that we're going through,” De La Vega says. “Developers are kind of looking for those tenants who are surviving in this environment.” He points to discount chains, such as Burlington, Ross and TJ Maxx, as examples of “treasure hunting” for customers. Those types of retailers, says De La Vega, are thriving, compared to the standard box stores.

Interpreting interactions Beyond the mix of retailers, developers like De La Vega want to create interaction in ways that are unavailable online. “We’re rethinking how we're planning our projects,” he says. The priority now, especially in mixed-use projects, is creating different levels of interaction, those that are planned and casual. “I think that humans crave interaction now more than ever because of the internet,” says De La Vega. “A lot of people are dating online now; we're even grocery shopping online; we're doing everything online. The more we do, the less face-to-face interaction we have.” He says casual interactions can be generated by combining hotel and restaurant traffic in a development. Planned encounters take a bit more finesse.

“You have people who live there visiting retail, where they just kind of hang out and they meet,” De La Vega says.”We’re creating projects where we integrate retail as kind of the sizzle in a project. The retail in a large mixed-use project helps bring that whole fabric together. People can just live, hang out and have faceto-face encounters.” He adds that’s not just of interest for singles who’d like to meet new people, but could be as simple as a play area for kids that brings area parents together.

Eating up demand Restaurants are also an important component in these cultivated environments. An experience in an eatery is one that can’t be replicated online. “There's no doubt that landlords are flocking toward internet-resistant concepts. Food generally falls in that category, although there are continual changes even in that department,” says Johnson, mentioning the increased use of food apps, online ordering and grocery delivery. “There are a lot of things that are even impacting that component of it, but I do think entertainment and restaurants will be one of the highlights going forward.” Wall Street, Johnson points out, has invested in restaurants, forcing their growth. That, he says, is a kind of double-edged sword. “Unfortunately, a lot of times these groups are opening restaurants that don't really need to be opened,” he says. “That ends up hurting a lot of people, so there's going to be some winners and losers.” Johnson says some markets, Dallas included, are becoming what he calls “over-fooded,” a situation in which there are too many seats. That issue was discussed during the retail panel he moderated at ICSC, which included representatives from Alama Drafthouse, Corner Bakery, Shake Shack and Eatzi’s. 16

March 2018

“Some of our panelists said 2017 was the first year they started to see some declines in their sales,” says Johnson. “One of the taglines from Holland Burton, Corner Bakery’s vice president of real estate, was ‘flat is the new up.’ So 2018 may be a flat year for a lot of restaurants, purely from a competition standpoint, but that's OK.” Another obstacle for the modern restaurant industry in Texas is labor. “It’s a very challenging aspect of their business and it is getting more difficult to hire not only good talent, but to pay for it,” Johnson says. “It was interesting to hear how it is now even impacting their site selection.” Johnson referenced a comment from Bill Digataeno, COO and owner of Alamo Drafthouse, who discussed how Dallas/Fort Worth is the most competitive movie-eatery market in the country. Despite that, Johnson says Digataeno is very bullish on DFW and believes there are more opportunities for him to expand there. That sentiment was echoed by some of the other panelists, who suggested that despite the competitive restaurant market, so many new jobs are coming to the DFW area that it is still a great place for eateries to expand. “They’re just going to do it cautiously,” Johnson adds.

Innovate or go industrial The old saying goes, ‘If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em’ and that’s just what some retailers are starting to do to compete with the likes of Amazon. “Amazon has filed a crazy number of patents and Walmart is starting to do the same,” says De La Vega. “I think retailers are starting to get into that game and they are realizing that they've got to jump in.” He suggests it’s likely that we’ll see more retailers enter that arena and be a part of the change. It’s unclear, he says, what that will look like. “I think you are going to see other retailers that are in the market today come out with exciting ideas,” De La

Vega says. “I think they are going to jump in and be a part of the change.” Innovating, he insists, should be the priority of any retailer today. Citing Toys ‘R’ Us, De La Vega explained the danger of focusing on anything else. “A private equity firm bought the company and just loaded it with debt. They’re so focused on financial engineering that they don't leave a lot of room for innovation,” he says. “Failure to adapt means the strong survive and the weak perish. I think that's what we're going to see.” While some retailers thrive, others are falling victim to the changing landscape, resulting in new opportunities in commercial real estate. A trend that is already emerging is an evolution from traditional retail to industrial. “In Dallas-Fort Worth, there is great demand for shallow-depth space for local businesses,” De La Vega says. He gave the example of a sign contractor who needs a combination of showroom and warehouse space. “Landlords probably aren’t going to get top rent for that kind of property, but you can definitely get midteens,” notes De La Vega. He suspects class-A strip malls will continue to do well because of their tenant mix, which is often loaded with service tenants. Those retailers, De La Vega reiterates, will always need space because their offerings can’t be satiated online. “It’s the class-B properties that will probably switch to more warehouse-industrial use,” he says. In an industry built on change and evolution, now more than ever, retail CRE professionals are prepared to do what it takes to survive, a stance emphasized at ICSC. “I thought it was a good forecast overall,” says Johnson. “There’s continued positive sentiment from developers, retailers and finance.”

"We've got to keep hustling" Fort Worth fights to make a name for itself BY BRANDI SMITH

They don’t call Dallas ‘Big D’ for nothing. It tops lists like Forbes’ “Best Cities for Jobs” and “Best Places to Invest in Real Estate” or HousingWire.com’s “Best Real Estate Markets in the U.S.” It is the shining example of growth and development in North Texas. Therein lies the challenge for the city that could be considered Dallas’ little sister: Fort Worth. The seat of Tarrant County, Fort Worth is the 16th largest city in the country, but its glow is often muted by the spectacle of big sis, Big D. At a recent conference on economic development, local government and economic leaders acknowledged visibility is a challenge. “From a visibility standpoint and an informational standpoint, people just aren’t aware of us as a community,” said Robert Sturns, the city’s economic development director. He cited a recent study that revealed, when asked to rank the Top 50 cities in the country, people on average put Fort Worth at 49 instead of its strong position at 16.

The city’s EDC and chamber of commerce have spent years working on a strategic plan to elevate Fort Worth’s spot in the national conversation. “This is the year we stop talking about this strategic plan piece and we actually start implementing it,” said chamber executive vice president of economic development Brandom Gengelbach. The chamber’s vision is to “drive the Fort Worth region to be the most thriving, inviting community for all.” “The ‘thriving’ is about the business piece: attracting business, growing jobs from within the entrepreneurial community. ‘Inviting’ is about the quality of place piece. It’s about making sure we are an attractive community to bring in people from the outside and keep our people here,” Gengelbach said. The challenge lies in the business part of that plan right now. Fort Worth, Sturns said, has great residential activity.

“We’re just not seeing the job growth that goes along with that,” he added, suggesting that people commute from Texas’ fifth largest city to jobs in other North Texas communities. That could change in 2018, according to Drew Kile, senior vice president of investments for Marcus & Millichap’s Dallas office. “I think we’re going to beat 80,000 jobs [this year],” he said during his forecast on the apartment market. “I think with projects like Charles Schwab, Liberty Mutual, Toyota, GM, there’s a lot that’s banked. It’s already coming, but a lot of those jobs haven’t shown up yet.” Another 2018 trend Kile predicted is a rise of the so-called urban village. He said currently Fort Worth is embracing the pockets of mixed-use developments with more frequency than Dallas. He also has his eye on the North Fort Worth and Mansfield areas, where he anticipates a boom this year. “[It will be] primarily driven by improved connectivity from the highways. TX-360 will be done in the next three months, getting you down from Mansfield much more efficiently,” Kile said. “That’s going to drive retail development there. That’s where a lot of apartment development has been.” The office market is also facing some challenges, according to Matt Montague, JLL vice president of tenant representation for office, industrial and land transactions. He’s quick to label those challenges “opportunity,” During his presentation, Montague pointed out market attrition and low attraction in the area, which is only home to two Fortune 1,000 company headquarters. It lags behind ‘peer’ cities in almost all categories, he

said, adding that there’s a loss of balance between urban and suburban investment. “My general theme would be we’re stable, we’re positive, we’re in a good place. As we compare ourselves out of Fort Worth, we have work to do,” he said. One segment in which the city appears to shine is retail, which Jessica Worman of M2G Ventures called “alive and well.” The key, she asserted, is being adaptable. “To get people to relocate their corporate headquarters, bring millennials here, to get that workforce, to get that quality of life, we have to give them places to go and shop,” she said. Different developments in the city are doing just that. But, when they do, Worman said it’s important they keep a couple emerging trends in mind. Those include bringing in first-to-market retailers, offering experience-based retail and providing space for incubators and pop-ups. “We’ve all seen a lot of [incubators] open. ShopSmall Fort Worth has done several markets, 411 has done several markets,” Worman said. “You see a lot of popups happening.” As for the importance of new retailers, she pointed to the Clearfork development as an aspirational example. More than 75 percent of its retailers and restaurateurs that have opened since Jan. 1, 2017 are the first in the market. “That’s huge,” she said. Other trends Worman highlighted include first-class entrepreneurial start-ups, developer focus on quality retail, chef-driven restaurants, co-working and creative space, public art, retail with purpose and value-oriented retail. On that last point, she highlighted the Fall 2017 opening of Tanger Outlets, the first outlet mall in the Fort Worth area, featuring more than 70 stores. In 2018, she expects significant retail moves in the Cultural District, Near Southside, Stockyards, Downtown FW, SW FW and University neighborhoods. 20

There are going to be more young professionals who will take advantage of the white space,” said Worman. “You’re going to see more interesting things happen, more concepts coming to the city.” One of the developments she referenced as her company’s “baby” is The Foundry District, which cultivated 14 new tenants since the beginning of 2017. “You have a lot of people in the city who are gravitating toward something that’s a trend everywhere else: warehouse conversion,” she said of The Foundry’s draw. “They like the juxtaposition of old and new.” For professionals focused on retail commercial real estate, Worman says change will be the only constant. “The modern consumer will keep changing. Every year will be a reinvention,” she said. “[In] 2018, constant reinvention is the new normal.” The onus isn’t just on retailers, however. Worman points out that residents of Fort Worth bear some of the responsibility of supporting the industry. “As a city, now that we’re on the map in terms of retail and food and beverage dining destinations, we have to shop. We have to support the local business,” she said. “The local business in this case doesn’t necessarily mean that Neiman Marcus isn’t a local.” It’s no secret that e-commerce has significantly altered the retail landscape. It’s also having an

interesting side effect on the industrial market, according to Hillwood’s Tony Creme. “Every $1 billion of ecommerce sales requires 1.2 million square feet of industrial product,” he said. “I think this is a big reason the industrial market has been hot for so many years and will continue that trend going forward.” As the number of online transactions ticks up, the need for distribution and data centers only grows. Hillwood is capitalizing on this, converting 350 acres planned for industrial use to data center land. “We can build about 400 megawatts of data center power. Just to put that in perspective, the entire DFW data center market is about 400 megawatts,” Creme said. “We see a lot of potential in this new market.” Though he predicts industrial deliveries will outpace absorption this year (“I hope I’m wrong,” he said), Creme also anticipates a 1-million-square-foot deal in Fort Worth in 2018. He said he’s also keeping an eye on south Fort Worth, where he expects more new developers. “I’m very, very bullish on south Fort Worth,” said Creme. “I think it has a lot of potential. A lot of developers put their money where their mouths are and started building new buildings.” It’s clear it will take more than a single stellar year to fight its way out of Dallas’ shadow, but CRE experts in Fort Worth seem confident the city will soon be able to shine on its own.

Elizabethn Clampitt, Moderator- JLL; Keith Edwards, Caldwell Companies; Tommy LeBlanc, Avison YoungCompetitors

Jeremy Garner, Moderator-Trammell Crow; Stephen Hazen, Lee & Associates; Alexander Reilly-Competitors

Bullets: • Should be clear sailing ahead in 2018 for Houston businesses • Texas is an economic miracle • The four largest Texas cities are also the top four in U.S. for domestic in-migration • Texas’ and Houston’s leading economic indicators remain on an upward curve • With no fiscal restraint shown in recent tax law change, inflation and higher interest rates are a threat and will not be good for CRE; there is no lid on debt in Washington any more, and deficit hawks have been forced to take a ‘back seat’ • Avoid CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC for any factual news: they are mongers of partisan propaganda and gossip and they are only cheap ‘advertising sellers’ • Small business confidence levels are high • Now is a good time to expand, as per recent surveys

Takeaway: Inventory overhang was temporarily absorbed by people displaced from their homes and apartments by Harvey, but people are moving back home, with some staying in apartments. Remaining inventory due to be slowly absorbed by projected job and population growth in Houston market. Bullets: • Area contractors are super busy repairing damaged ground floor apartments-labor is scarce • Absorption in ’18 & ’19 should pick up, and these should be strong years for MF • Flood insurance issues are big, both from lender demands and investor demands-the insurance market is in turmoil trying to price future coverage-premiums are creeping up in the 10-20% range, and more since hurricanes and wildfires caused big claims nationwide • New tax laws take away some of the incentives for home buying, which may give a boost to apartment occupancy • MF is one of the most attractive segments for investors, and a lot of cash is sitting on the sidelines in funds; look for deals and yield • Looking forward after 2018, supply looks to stay under control and owners may see 5-6% rate growth

24

March 2018

• Many suburban areas are hot for MF, and inside the urban core developers are looking for the ‘awesome site’, although inside the Loop new MF will have to compete with existing properties still offering free rent and other amenities

Takeaway: Lots of activity in the far suburbs for industrial and residential land, although it is hard to find land ‘ready to use’, and the costs for permitting, bringing utilities, and all other pre-development are getting higher and taking longer. Bullets: • Katy, Waller, the Port district, Crosby, the Northwest: all active markets • ECommerce is driving strong demand for warehouse space, and so is the pick up in drilling activity, as supply, service, and manufacturing companies expand to meet demand • With new residential communities comes demand for retail, and some retail developers are buying up commercial reserves many years before they actually plan to build centers on them • Industrial is moving farther out, like to Waller, Conroe, and Sealy • There was a lull in land activity at end of 2017 but now market is heating up again • As more land is covered with impermeable surfaces, the need for retention ponds increases, and this drives up cost of usable part of sites

Takeaway: High occupancy and high demand in this segment of CRE; investors chasing leased up deals. Bullets: • All sorts of users abound: ecommerce, furniture stores, grocery chains, oil & gasrelated industries • Developers are scrambling to catch up with high demand • Occupancy in 94-95% range • Landlords negotiating with tenants on tenant improvements, which can be costly, and adjusting rents accordingly • This segment not affected much by Harvey • Industrial landlords extremely bullish on Houston


RETAIL:

OFFICE:

Lilly Golden, Moderator-Vista Private Equity Group; Micha van Marcke, Transwestern; Christie Amezquita, Read King-Competitors

Evelyn Ward, Moderator-Transwestern; Bob Parsley, Colliers International; Paul Frazier, Hicks Ventures-Competitors

Takeaway: Nationally, media are saying retail is in apocalypse due to eCommerce, but this is not really the case, especially in Houston, where new concepts snap up recently vacated retail lease spaces. Many new and innovative tenants are taking retail space, for medical, entertainment, and other uses Bullets: • There are few vacated retail spaces which are not immediately recycled in Houston • Over a five year lease term, the various operating costs to tenants are making their operations costlier than they assumed when they first signed their leases • Some new tenants with non-traditional businesses are difficult for landlords and lenders to underwrite, since they are an unknown quantity • Some spaces now contain dancing, DJs, and live music every night, taking advantage of large parking availability • People like to live, play, and shop all near their residences…retail strips not near rooftops have some challenges • EaDo is a new hot area for retail, as gentrification brings more residential density

Takeaway: Occupancies overall in 79-82% range, with some positive absorption in 2017. This segment is not out of the woods yet. Bullets: • Many older buildings are being renovated with whistles and bells added to be able to compete with new Class A space • Workplace environments and tenant demands are changing, and it is up to landlords to keep pace with today’s tenant needs • Recent boosts in oil prices have not yet resulted in new leasing by the oil industry • Very little new supply in the pipeline • Less than 7% of office supply was affected by Harvey flooding, and that which was is mostly back in operation

2018 Texas Property Tax Deadline Change BY PAUL BETTENCOURT

Protesting your property taxes every year offers a great opportunity to save money. In Texas, property taxes represent approximately 40% of total business taxes. This is a large component of expenses that can be challenged and changed.

Protesting your property taxes every year offers a great opportunity to save money. In Texas, property taxes represent approximately 40% of total business taxes. This is a large component of expenses that can be challenged and changed. It is important to note that key property tax deadlines have moved up two weeks because of tax code changes passed during Texas’ 85th legislative session. Two deadlines critical to keep track of are:

April 1st Rendition Filing Deadline Renditions must be filed annually on any Business Personal Property (BPP) located in Texas. BPP can include computers, furniture, fixtures, vehicles, and inventory. 10% penalties on your property taxes will be incurred if Business Personal Property tax renditions, or extension requests, are not filed by April 1st.

May 15th Property Tax Protest Deadline Protests for Business Personal Property and Real Estate Property must be filed by May 15th (or, 30 days from the postmarked date on the “Notice of Appraised Value”) to be able to fight your property tax valuations in hearings at your local appraisal district.

26

March 2018

When approaching property tax valuations in any market, it is important to know all the ins and outs of the Texas Property Tax Code. Applying the right exemption or using the right depreciation

schedule can make a big difference in the size of your property tax reduction. You must meet these deadlines to be able to fight for lower property tax valuations. Remember, every million dollars in aggregate appraised value reductions generally generates approximately $25,000 in property tax savings.

Paul “The Taxman” Bettencourt, President/ CEO of Bettencourt Tax Advisors, LLC (www.btanow.com), has an experienced state licensed senior property tax team with over 250 years in the industry and has invested in state of the art technology to support property tax reductions for our customers.
