These big names shared plenty of positive news.  Cincinnati’s commercial real estate industry is in the middle of a busy period, with all sectors, enjoying lower vacancy rates and higher asking rents.

Rickert, on the Office Market Panel, was quoted saying “We have 2-3 years before we see the next downturn.  Value plays are out there with B & C properties.  There are opportunities for these properties to be recycled to a better life.”
