Rick Sharga (2022 Keynote Speaker)
“Investing in a Pre-Recessionary Market”

There aren’t many celebrities in the real estate world, but there is one very special individual who stands out. When CNN or Bloomberg need a real estate expert, there is only one person they interview. When CBS or NBC News need analysis of a difficult real estate issue, there is only person they call. When CNBC or ABC News need a real estate authority on a breaking story, there is only one person they turn to. When NPR or the Wall Street Journal need a quote from a real estate expert, there is only one person they ask. Probably no one in the real estate industry has appeared more frequently on TV, radio, online, or in print than this guy! Who else gets listed on Inman News’ “Top 100 Influential Real Estate Leaders” year after year? There is only one person who receives this kind of respect.

None other than the one and only Rick Sharga, the number #1 authority on real estate economics.

As Executive Vice-President at RealtyTrac, Rick oversees the publication of the country’s largest, most comprehensive database of properties in foreclosure and one of the go-to sources of distressed property information for real estate investors and agents. Best news of all is that Rick has agreed to be our Keynote Speaker for the 3rd Los Angeles Real Estate Grand Expo.  Rick doesn’t normally do live events, so we are “over the moon” to have him!

The title of Rick’s presentation is “What to Expect in the Post-Pandemic Real Estate Market.” Please join us as Rick discusses how COVID-19 has impacted real estate in ways no one expected – sales increased, prices soared, mortgage rates dipped to historic lows, inventories disappeared, and urban Millennials increasingly became suburban homeowners. Now, as our economy re-opens, what should investors expect?
During his presentation, Rick will discuss:

• What’s happening in the U.S. and California economies?
• What are the latest sales and price trends nationally and in Southern California?
• When can we expect more inventory to come to market?
• What’s happening in the rental market?
