In January and February, the Business Record hosted five video roundtables, each on a different segment of real estate and development in Greater Des Moines: Office, retail, industrial,land and residential. Senior Staff Writer Kent Darr then wrote summaries of each discussion and put together Q&A style stories for our Annual Real Estate Magazine. The magazine was distributed at our April 25 CRE Trends and Issues Forum and inserted in the April 27 issue of the Business Record.

This Video roundtable focused on residential and featured the following panelists.

Alexander Grgurich,
partner, Nelson Construction & Development

Kris Saddoris,
vice president of development, Hubbell Realty Co.

Madeline Sturms,
community development director, city of Pleasant Hill

Greg Wattier
principal, Slingshot Architecture
