In this edition of The TREC Podcast, David Evemy of Sarofim Realty Advisors talks to David Meyer of Grant Thornton about recent changes to the tax code and how they affect the commercial real estate industry. Though it was recorded in advance of the 2018 filing cycle, it’s always a good time to get caught up and look ahead to next year!
