“Chris Weilminster — Thanks for posting a link to your recent interview on the Leasing REality podcast. I enjoyed hearing your perspective on the current state of the retail real estate industry and I was also really glad to learn of Larry Haber’s podcast series. I agree with your assertion that his podcasts are awesome and what a great resource! Since listening to your interview, I have listened to several others, including the one with Beth Azor, and Leasing REality is now on my go-to list for fresh perspectives from CRE industry veterans.”
– Bob Grimsley, Real Estate Manager | IKEA Group
“I wanted to thank you as your podcast has been an introduction for me into commercial real estate. I first found your podcast during the summer going into my senior year of college. This is where I first learned of James Nelson and other industry leaders that I reached out to. I reached out to James at the beginning of my senior year, and he was very helpful and introduced me to a lot of other people in the business. But given the market conditions, it was difficult finding a full-time job in investment sales after graduation. I continued to stay in touch with James, and after a year of following up with him, I asked him if I could come on as a part-time intern. James agreed and I started interning with the team in September. In early December, Avison Young’s research analyst quit without providing a two-week notice, and the team was left scrambling to put together the Q4 property sales report, which was his main responsibility. I was able to step in and complete the report, and after completion was offered the full-time research analyst role. I wanted to share this with you because your podcast helped me tremendously during my job search.”

“I wake up at 4:30 AM, work late and weekends, finishing my days taking Larry Haber’s course these last few months to ensure I understand every aspect of my clients’ commercial real estate leases. Larry is a preeminent real estate attorney out of NYC and walks brokers through all the intricacies of lease docs. If you are willing to dedicate time towards developing value, look into Leasing REality. Looking forward to the 48-Hour course.”

“As a Real Estate Executive for over 30 years and former Chairman of CoreNet Global, I am always seeking new tools to quickly and efficiently teach the younger members of our profession – including those venturing into the field. I learned the old fashion way of having a mentor within the industry and learning through hard knocks. In today’s quick global environment, which includes performing real estate tasks with less available staff, the unfortunate truth is that we are unable to properly mentor the upcoming generation. Leasing REality is a timely all encompassing tool which will fill that void. Coupled with the unique Larry Haber teaching style of keeping it simple and complete, this is a tool which we should all use to teach our staff.”
– Jeffrey L. Elie, Vice President, Global Real Estate and Facilities | Kaplan, Inc.
“I have had the pleasure of working with Larry for well over 10 years both professionally, personally and on behalf of non-profits. Over the past 7 years, Larry has consulted me on all types of real estate matters, from tiny deals to $7M leases, for two national companies. One of Larry’s strengths was his ability to educate me and my colleagues on how to view our “asks” from both sides of the table. Having insight into how landlords think made me a better negotiator and a better tenant. With each deal, I felt I learned something new, and wished I had captured all of that new found wisdom in an easy place to retain and access as needed. With the publication of Leasing REality, Larry has done just that for me and for all of us who will be able to benefit from his remarkable knowledge and experience. Once again, Larry has delivered!”

His business minded approach helps get leases done in an expeditious manner to our benefit. Larry has now taken his lifetime of experiences and poured them into Leasing REality, an informative and (if you watch the videos) somehow entertaining training and negotiating platform for leasing professionals.”
