Bank Rate consults Suzanne Hollander's 2023 1st Quarter Real Estate Expectations
Suzanne Hollander, a real estate professor at Florida International University, advises sellers to be realistic: “Get real about pricing and ask yourself, if you sell your home and need a loan to finance the purchase of a next home, will you be able to afford the new interest rate? It may make more sense for you to stay put until rates go down, but you must weigh this decision against prices possibly reducing.”

Suzanne Hollander, a real estate law professor at Florida International University, is surprised that the rapid increase in rates has not yet translated into reduced home prices across the U.S. “During the 1970s and 1980s when interest rates were high, prices were low. Buying now with high rates and high prices at the same time creates a very high monthly cost for borrowers to carry,” she points out.

“Residential real estate, Hollander said, has a greater obligation to put women in executive positions due to the sheer number of female professionals. In corporate America there is an old boys club, but we shouldn’t have that in an industry that is 64% women,” Hollander said.
Suzanne Hollander Interview on Tips for Success in Commercial Real Estate by Women to Women Wednesday Pam Scamardo
Women don't have to wait for milestones, to start investing in property and investing in themselves. I started as a traditional real estate attorney, Miami is a real estate town. The risks I took (1) get out of the law firm (2) get my "feet on the street" working for a real estate developer (3) working with an investor buying distress property out of foreclosure in 2009/2010 and (4) teaching around the world. I believe in the U.S. Constitution and the private property protections in its fifth and fourteenth amendments that are enforced and upheld by the U.S. judicial and police system....

Inspired by Justice Ginsburg's 87 Years of Life - Suzanne Hollander Asks How Will I Spend My Years? WIll I choose to make an impact, when to speak up, dissent stand up and how to be remembered
“How will I choose to spend the years of my life?” I think about Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s impact during her 87 years of life and ask myself this question. You, like me, can choose how to make an impact, when to speak up, dissent, stand up and how your actions or inactions will be remembered....I see the transformative power of teaching. Teaching is the way to plant a seed to make people learn and care about issues and each other, to take a stand and steps to improve their futures and others

Hollander opened the presentation with the Maya Angelo quote “each time a woman stands up for herself she stands up for all women.” Most women face a time in their careers when, due to their gender, they’re harassed, evaluated unfairly, or excluded from conversations. For example, the wage gap between men and women in commercial real estate has widened over the past five years, leaving women at all levels underpaid, underrepresented and increasingly unsatisfied with their careers in 2020, according to a new benchmark study report by the Commercial Real Estate Women Network.

Hollander pointed that critical times to stand up for oneself and other women are during promotion, hiring, compensation discussions, appointment to corporate boards, leadership and senior positions of authority and selecting panelists for presentations.
