Real Estate WeeklyDevelopers Make Hay During Market Upswing

Developer Francis Greenburger is riding the market’s upswing while the going is good. “You never know when the bell is gonna ring here,” said Greenburger of market timing during a panel at the Massey Knakal Multifamily Summit last week. “However, in our business you have to make money while the sun shines. You have to have enough money to survive when it gets really dark outside. So it’s kind of dual strategy. You have to choose your timing.” Greenburger was speaking on a panel — moderated by Holland & Knight’s Stuart Saft — that included Macklowe Properties chairman Harry Macklowe, John Cetra, founding principal of CetraRuddy Architecture,...
