First on our panel was, Jim Belfiore – Founder and President of Belfiore Real Estate Consulting, a leading residential market research firm, offering a variety of residential data and analyses. Jim caught us up on real time facts in the real estate industry and will paint a broader picture of where the market is headed. Next on the panel we had, Mark Tarbell – an award-winning chef and owner of Tarbell’s restaurant in Scottsdale. Mark offered insight into the restaurant industry and its performance in the past few weeks as some businesses have opted to close doors amid rising COVID-19 numbers. Mark has an impressive background and was named the winner on the Food Network’s “Iron Chef America” in 2007. Our third panelist was Chris Grogan – Partner at El Dorado Holdings, Inc., a top-notch real estate investment firm with a rich history.
