AmTrust Title's Randy Elkins moderates Bisnow Panel in Houston
New York, NY, June 7, 2018 - AmTrust Title Insurance Company (“AmTrust Title”) was represented by its Managing Director-Counsel for Texas Operations, Randy Elkins, at Bisnow’s “Houston-State of the Market 2018” Forum on June 5th.
Mr. Elkins moderated a prestigious panel of real estate professionals covering multiple topics and entitled: “Why We Never Stood A Chance: Amazon's HQ2, A Market Evaluation, How To Score HQ3, Our 5-Year Vision, What It Takes To Get There.”
The panelists examined the strengths and weaknesses of the city and concluded that while Houston may have fallen short in the eyes of Amazon, the strong economic drivers fueled by the City’s energy, medical and port facilities, together with its land availability, population growth and low cost of living, will continue to be very attractive to companies who choose to invest in the region.
More than 400 guests attended the morning forum, for which AmTrust Title was also a sponsor.
