The 42nd floor of the Tower at Cityplace was the venue for RealPoints’ fall networking event for contributing editors and other commercial real estate pros. Among the 200 or so attendees were firm heads (and RealPoints bloggers) Jack Eimer of Transwestern, David Pinsel of Colliers International, Mickey Ashmore of UCR, Moody Younger of Younger Partners, Brian O’Boyle of ARA, and Mike Geisler of Venture Commercial. Plano Mayor Phil Dyer and State Representative Ken Paxton also were there.
Eight lucky people walked away with door prizes:
• Katie Chu of Altschuler + Co.—$400 West Village gift basket, courtesy of The Tower at Cityplace
• Geisler—$250 Al Biernat’s gift card, courtesy of Bell Nunnally
• Jack Savage Jr., CF Accountants—$100 Rick’s Chophouse gift card, courtesy of McKinney Economic Development Corp.
• Eimer—$100 Top Golf gift card, courtesy of Allen Economic Development Corp.
• Brian Wilson, Cushman & Wakefield—$100 IKEA gift certificate, courtesy of Frisco Economic Development Corp.
• Trey West of Colliers, William Peeples of KDC, and Susan Blair of Cresa each won three-month memberships—including two personal training sessions—to the spa and Larry North Fitness facility at Cityplace.
A shout out to our sponsors: Stream Realty Partners and The Tower at CityPlace, Bell Nunnally, Collin County Regional Partnership, and Johnnie Walker, which came up with some special drink recipes especially for the RealPoints crowd. Cityplace Events handled the scrumptious food, Skai did the flowers, and Fauxcades came up with the decor.
