Georgetown MPS in real estate - 2014 updateI've searched WSO and found a few threads on this program, but most of the threads are pretty dated at this point. I'm starting the program this month.

Tough examplesI haven't been able to find the answer to this question on Google (not sure how to frame it in a search function), but can a new business be named after a defunct business?

My grievances against the present administrationDuring the GOP primary the debates between supporters have become pretty heated. But I think some voters get lost in the weeds of their political philosophies. For me it is absolutely essential to throw out Barack Obama, if for no other reason than to repeal Obamacare. A lot of "conservatives"... 3 years 5 months

Idiotic Compliance TrainingYou f*cking asshole...that is BRILLIANT. Damn. I used to have to put up with that garbage when I was at a bank. Totally worthless busy work for the bank to cover itself with the useless regulators. 11 hours 58 min
Off-Market DealsIt's not that easy when you're in a partnership with another group. You've got to 1031 together into another investment, and it's got to be within 180 days of the sale. I can't recall, but I don't believe we can 1031 into a larger deal with another group (I think it has to be in the same ownership... 18 hours 27 min
Off-Market DealsWe are one of those bastards who never sell. :) We just got an unsolicited offer of $18 million for an apartment building worth about $13 million in the open market (we've had 2 previous unsolicited offers for $12.5 and $13 million, which is really about right) since it is a LIHTC developer that... 1 day 4 hours

Accepted Tishman Speyer offer but received...Turning down Blackstone is setting herself up to earn less money over the course of her life. She made a strategically bad decision that she will probably pay for over time. Women are just bad at the process of job seeking, for whatever reason. Seeing the same thing right now with a woman we are... 3 weeks 5 days
Accepted Tishman Speyer offer but received...She already made the wrong decision months ago. This is why women make less than men, btw. They absolutely suck at negotiation and positioning themselves properly during the hiring process. 3 weeks 5 days
Anyone familiar with the nightclub business?Interesting take on the upside (% revenue). We do that with a few of our retail clients now (percentage rent), but hadn't thought of that. 3 weeks 5 days
Anyone familiar with the nightclub business?Surprisingly great discussion. Literally Just found out that my friend's wife's family owns every major nightclub in the STATE of California. It sounds like it would make sense to let a major owner/operator perform its due diligence and decide if it makes sense at the location. If so, then get... 3 weeks 6 days
