The Dean’s Message

Ed Grier, Dean

On behalf of the VCU School of Business, our sponsors and conference committee members, I would like to personally welcome you to the 2011 Real Estate Trends Conference. The Conference will focus on our rapidly changing world and the ongoing challenges for the real estate industry. This year we have included current trends in the areas of the overall real estate economy, future of Government Sponsored Entities, and commercial real capital markets. It is my sincere hope that during the conference you will gain valuable insights, develop new contacts and reconnect with old friends.

Many of our School of Business Real Estate students are here today. I encourage you to take this opportunity to meet and speak with tomorrow’s real estate leaders. If you are considering hiring an intern or a full-time employee, or even returning to school yourself, be sure to visit the School of Business booth. Your participation is greatly appreciated and we look forward to seeing you again next year.

VCU School of Business “Our Time. Right Now.” became the rallying cry of Virginia Commonwealth University as the men’s basketball team played their way to the Final Four in March 2011. It’s the same winning spirit that spurs our business students to success when they step into Snead Hall, home court of the VCU School of Business. Located on Main Street in Richmond, Virginia, VCU Business offers a winning combination of real-world experience and a strong academic program. The school maintains the distinction of being one of just 633 business schools, or less than 5% worldwide, to have earned accreditation by AACSB International, the premier accrediting board for business schools. All programs include meaningful interaction with inspiring entrepreneurs and executives from the city’s eleven Fortune 1000 companies. Students choose from a wide variety of majors and concentrations – including Virginia’s only bachelor’s degree in Real Estate. Students savor city life in the heart of Richmond, ranked one of the best places to live in America. VCU Business Career Services and 19 student organizations connect students to industry. They can complete internships year-round and get paired with an alumni mentor in the Ram-to-Ram program. The school’s 25,000 graduates are members of the VCU Business Alumni Society, which aims to build powerful connections for students and alumni. It’s no wonder that the Princeton Review recognized VCU Business in its 2011 edition of “The Best 300 Business Schools,” or that student teams have brought home trophies from the Villanova Real Estate Competition, Fed Challenge, Microsoft Imagine Cup, HR Games, Phi Beta Lambda, CFA Investment Research Challenge and more.

The Alfred L. Blake Chair in Real Estate The Alfred L. Blake Chair in Real Estate was created with a generous gift from Alfred L. Blake, Jr., in conjunction with the Virginia Realtors Foundation, now the Virginia Real Estate Educational Foundation, which is the charitable offshoot of the Virginia Association of Realtors®, who recognized the need for increased knowledge in the field of real estate and the necessity of keeping professionals in real estate and related fields aware of new industry developments. The Blake Chair was formally dedicated in 1972 with the purpose of providing a strong academic background for students studying real estate at Virginia Commonwealth University and planning careers in real estate and in related fields such as land planning, law, architecture, mortgage lending, banking, and insurance. The Blake Chair pays tribute to Alfred L. Blake, Sr., who was a founder of the Richmond-based firms of Mortgage Investment Corporation and Alfred L. Blake and Sons. Mr. Blake entered the real estate field in 1904 at the age of 19. In 1912 he entered into a partnership with the late Eugene B. Moorefield to create the firm of Moorefield and Blake. In 1927 the name was changed to Blake & Dudley, Inc. The firm became Alfred L. Blake and Sons, Inc., in 1942, with I. Norris Blake and Alfred L. Blake, Jr., joining the company. Mr. Blake was a founding member of Battery Park Christian Church and was a member of the board of trustees of both Lynchburg College and the YMCA. He was a past president of the Real Estate Board of Richmond. Dr. James H. Boykin served as the first Alfred L. Blake Chair in Real Estate from 1972 until his retirement in 2002. Dr. David H. Downs was named the second Blake Chair in 2003 and continues in that role today. Thanks to the vision of the Blake family and the Virginia Association of Realtors®, for nearly 40 years the Real Estate Program at Virginia Commonwealth University has positively influenced countless aspiring real estate professionals and has enhanced the quality of real estate decision making throughout the nation.

Real Estate Research at VCU Virginia Commonwealth University is one of the most productive sources of top-flight real estate research in the world, according to a study published in the February 2011 issue of the Journal of Real Estate Finance and Economics. VCU ranked No. 14 among U.S. universities based on the total number of pages published in the three top-tier, real estate-focused research publications – Real Estate Economics, Journal of Real Estate Research and Journal of Real Estate Finance and Economics – during the 10-year stretch between 1998 and 2008, according to the study. VCU also ranked No. 23 among academic and non-academic research institutions worldwide for the period that dates between 1973 and 2008. “Scholarly research is a vital component of Virginia Commonwealth University’s academic portfolio and a major focus of our strategic plan,” said Beverly Warren, Ed.D., Ph.D., provost and vice president for academic affairs at VCU. “The faculty in the Real Estate Program excel in productive research activities. We are proud of their accomplishments and look forward to their continued national and international recognition.” The study not only reflects the long-standing emphasis on research in the Real Estate Program, but also highlights the program’s growing strength. Among those current professors in the School of Business whose research publications contributed to the ranking are Kenneth Daniels, Ph.D., David H. Downs, Ph. D., Richard A. Phillips, Ph.D., and Brent C. Smith, Ph.D. William N. Kinnard Young Scholar Award Brent C. Smith, Ph.D. was awarded the prestigious William N. Kinnard Emerging Scholar Award by the American Real Estate Society’s Executive Committee in 2010. Consideration is given primarily to scholarly activities, impact and engagement in developing new knowledge for the real estate industry. Several of Dr. Smith’s publications along with his co-authors are listed below:

The Kornblau Institute The Kornblau Institute at Virginia Commonwealth University was established in 2006 through the generosity of Richmond businessman and philanthropist, Sam Kornblau. The Institute focuses on research broadly related to commercial and residential real estate. These issues often benefit from an interdisciplinary approach and include such concerns as land use, housing and commercial development - the social, cultural and economic sides of the real estate business. Collaborative research seeks to engage other programs and schools such as nursing, social work and government and public affairs, working with various departments in the School of Business. This collaborative approach seeks to elevate the national and international profile of the Real Estate Program at Virginia Commonwealth University. Over the last five years, representatives of the Institute have presented research papers and participated in academic and industry panel discussions at the Homer Hoyt Institute, American Real Estate and Urban Economic Association meetings, American Real Estate Society meetings, Asian Real Estate Society meetings, the Governor’s Conference on Housing, City University of London and the University of Regensburg. Proposals and partnership are sought with the objective of creating meaningful and impactful knowledge in support of real estate decisions.
