The Commercial Real Estate Distressed Assets Association CREDAA Story 2009 to 2011

CREDAA Advisors

About The Commercial Real Estate Distressed Assets Association

History

CREDAA was founded in pre-launch in January of 2010 and was first developed starting on August 20th 2009.

CREDAA is the brainchild of Scott Miller and Warren Samek, both National Commercial Account Executives with Fidelity National Title in Seattle, WA and JW Najarian, formally a commercial lender with Pathfinder Commercial Mortgage and the Founder of The Commercial Real Estate Professional Investor Group out of Los Angeles.

After the real estate and stock markets fell in September of 2008 the founders envisioned a commercial real estate collapse coming as the CRE market tends to lag just around 2 years from the residential market. We believe now that due to the magnitude of the market and residential market crashes, the commercial collapse is happening at a quicker pace.

Due to the TARP plan we believe the banks are holding troubled assets at an alarming rate and furthermore, that if these assets are held too long, that the market recovery will be much longer than it needs to be.

The founders came up with the idea that if the industry had a place to be able to work together at finding solutions, that the recovery could be sped up. The founders believe that an association of industry professionals and investors can, given the most current information, data and education, find and implement solutions that will help banks, brokers, lenders, investors and property owners re-work or get out from under troubled assets with the least losses.

Mission Statement

CREDAA is dedicated to, discovering solutions to the troubled assets market to help and guide in supporting, enlightening, educating and engaging our member base and the industry on the current state of Commercial Real Estate, Distressed, toxic, unstable, troubled Assets or Non-performing Notes, by using technology, seminars, lectures, symposiums, webinars, teleseminars, and other media to deliver high quality and pertinent industry news, views, content, analytics and analysis and education to legitimate investors, brokers, lenders, industry professionals and sellers to communicate, participate and work together in on-going daily forums. CREDAA will also provide professionals a forum to promote themselves by listing members and their services in order to allow other members to build professional teams nationally to get projects moving.

Vision Statement

CREDAA, as an association, will be a powerful information resource and community for the commercial real estate and financial industry. CREDAA will effect positive change. Employing our mission to support and educate the industry to help find win-win solutions for financial institutions, lenders, brokers, buyers and other professionals can use and utilize to help move these assets into the public realm. As a group, we will assist the economy by turning around our current bad debt in Commercial Real Estate markets.

Goals

To provide brokers, lenders, banks, investors and other CRE industry professionals, education, solutions, resources and other support to help them in the disposition, acquisition, valuation and financing of CRE Distressed, Toxic, Unstable or troubled assets and non-performing notes. Become a membership of companies and individuals operating in the commercial real estate, investment, finance, and banking industries.

Policies and Procedures

CREDAA is a professional organization dedicated to the aquisition or distribution of commercial distressed assets and notes.

Values Statement

CREDAA believes that integrity of a person can only be determined via the values one possesses in a particular order. To stay in integrity CREDAA will judge each situation against this value list in this particular order.

  • Customer Service
  • Value product / user
  • Ease of Use
  • Profitable

NEW CREDAA

In July of 2011 Leonard Mangriquez of ALB Commercial Capital took over the reigns of CREDAA taking the focus off of CREDAA Connect and placing it at http://www.CREDAA.com. This change added needed functionality and added high level CRE industry training.

ALB Commercial still runs the http://www.CREDAA.com site, but has decided to focus on the lending side of the industry.

Sadly CREDAA Connect has been taken down. Here is what I saved from the front page of CREDAA Connect.

CREDAA, is dedicated to discovering and creating solutions for the Commercial Mortgage default industry and work towards keeping our members at the forefront of industry news and views, and provide support in the professional development and advancement of our members.

CREDAA is focused intently on taking action in these three areas:
1. Educate
With CREDAA, members leverage the power of knowledge and the brilliance of other industry professionals to enable success in the current CRE marketplace. CREDAA delivers education utilizing a variety of platforms like audio & video podcasts, webinars, seminars, online training, and Summit educational conferences.
2. Enable
Navigating, seizing and controlling current markets can only be accomplished by leveraging the latest research, analytics, news, and views. CREDAA is a place that provides access and the ability to find essential resources to enable the member to find and complete deals in an extremely tough market.
3. Connect
Real solutions through collaboration found only with the power of CREDAA networking. Find your local and national deal teams with the best of the best in the industry. Participate in business building events where you learn, find deals, make contacts, and create valuable friendships.

Closing Letter to CREDAA Connect Members

Hello members of CREDAA Connect. In August of 2009 a group of users from The Commercial Real Estate Professionals and Investors Group CREPIG.com got together to start a site that would help tie investors to distressed commercial properties.

We had high hopes, but as most of you know, at that time it was impossible to find any inventory that penciled out for investors and the banks were holding or should I say hoarding most of the marketable inventory.

With advisory board members like the late Frank Maguire Co-Founder of FedEx & KFC and many others (see http://onpurposemagazine.com/2014/04/11/the-commercial-real-estate-distressed-assets-association-credaa-story-2009-to-2011/) we worked hard to blaze new trails in an ailing industry.

This proved to be an almost impossible task as the banks would not release inventory or funds.

In 2011 Leonard Manriquez of ALB Commercial Capital took over the site which worked to educate, enable and help connect the thousands of investors, property owners and brokers with a site that allowed first class networking, resource development and education. You can still go to www.CREDAA.com to check out the work that was done there. Leo did a great job, but the industry was still taking a beating and ALB Commercial Capital has decided to make their priority lending in the commercial and multifamily markets.

To this end CREDAA Connect is shutting down. We appreciate our members and hope that you will check out www.ALBCommercialCapital.com for all your commercial finance needs. You may also join thousands of other CRE networkers at http://www.CREPIG.com with over 5000 members or at CREPIG at Linkedin with over 19,000 members at https://www.linkedin.com/groups/CREPIG-Commercial-Real-Estate-Professionals-79765 or CREPIG at Twitter www.Twitter.com/CREPIGsite which has over 36,000 followers.

Tom Bähler Famed Music Composer Turned Author

Tom BahlerFamed Composer Tom Bähler on His New Book “Anything is Possible; a Tale of Aesop”

And now Tom Bahler has written a fascinating fictional account of the life of the famed creator of Aesop’s Fables, a brilliant storyteller and eternal optimist who lived around 600 BCE. Tom joins us while speaking at Author 101 to talk about his new book and his new journey writing.

I love to interview authors because they are often great story tellers and they have rather interesting lives.

Tom Bähler is absolutely no exception. He has one of the most interesting stories you will run across.

Tom is a fun guy, who really likes people and loves to share his story and it was so fun getting to talk with him. Rick Frishman pops in at the end of the interview and we all have a great time.

Anything Is Possible; A Tale of ÆSOP

Anything Is Possible, Illustrated edition, an original novel by Thomas Bähler is a thought-provoking modern treasure, a fascinating fictional account of the life of the famed creator of Aesop’s Fables, a brilliant storyteller and eternal optimist who lived around 600 BCE.

The life of the great philosopher and teacher Æsop is explored for the first time ever in a brilliantly crafted historical fiction illuminated by fifty full page illustrations .

The novel begins with Aesop’s birth as a slave, covers his long quest for freedom and examines his service to the richest and most powerful man in the world.

Many would be surprised to know that Æsop, an enduring philosopher in the modern world, was born a slave. Yet, later in life, he served as Ambassador to the wealthiest King in ancient history, simply with a fierce belief in his own potential, and the ever-stalwart laws of reality…anything is possible.

Today, Æsop and his fables are quoted an estimated one million times daily, across the globe. Not bad for someone who lived 2600 years ago.

Written with the same simple genius as its central protagonist, in Anything Is Possible, the reader discovers the meaning of Æsop’s profound lessons on his/her own… subsequently, you, the reader, own these lessons, forever.

Change requires your permission.
Are you ready to BE POSSIBLE?

If this man, born a slave in 620 BC, can still inspire the world with his message in the year 2013… what does that mean YOU can do?

POSSIBILITY AWAITS…

We are all here to serve.

We are all here to BE POSSIBLE.

“A thought provoking exploration of freedom. It will inspire anyone who has ever dreamed of a better life.” – Quincy Jones

NicodermCQ / Nicorette Introduce Pledge to Quit Smoking Program

NicodermCQ / Nicorette Introduce New Pledge To Quit Program at GBK Luxury Gifting Suite to Help Support TabaccoFreeKids.org

NicodermCQs Jason Andre explains their new pledge program and how they are helping GBK Gifting Suites help people and kids, quit smoking.

As someone that has recently stopped smoking, I can attest to how tough it can be.

I quit with every other puff and finally it took. I really should have tried NicodermCQ or Nicorette, but I was too stubborn and it cost me so much quality time with my lungs.

Since quitting I have gotten rid of my smokers cough, I feel better, taste more, am in better shape and have lost over 15 pounds. Yes that is right lost pounds! I quit to save my health so I am eating healthier also.

If you are still smoking, make a pledge to stop. I know it is tough, but it is worth it and I believe that the patch and gum might just be what you need to be successful – JW

NicodermCQ

What is a nicotine patch?

To some people, the toughest part of quitting is dealing with the nicotine cravings that come with it. One way to overcome the need for nicotine is to stop smoking but partially replace

the nicotine that you would have had from smoking. As your body adapts to having less, you will experience the urge to smoke less often. Eventually, you can completely stop supplying your body with nicotine. This is the idea behind Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT).

Patches like NicoDerm CQ are just one form of Nicotine Replacement Therapy. They look like large adhesive bandages and stick onto the skin in the same way. The sticky side of the patch contains a layer of nicotine. While you wear the patch, nicotine passes through the skin into your blood. This delivers nicotine in a steady stream, helps reduce the nicotine cravings that come from quitting and making it easier for you to use your willpower to quit smoking.

Unlike other patches, NicoDerm CQ features Time Release SmartControl Technology so it acts fast and lasts long to help control your cravings and double your chances of quitting*. And since it’s a thin, clear patch, it’s easy to wear discreetly.

Nicorette Gum

How Nicorette® Gum Works

It is difficult when you’re quitting and all you can think about is your next
cigarette. Nicorette Gum® helps calm your withdrawal symptoms when you’re
trying to quit. That’s because, when you stop smoking, the sudden removal of
nicotine from your system lowers your dopamine levels, making you feel
moody and irritable.

Nicorette Gum provides a controlled amount of nicotine to your system at a slower, less intense pace than cigarettes and without the toxins in cigarette

smoke. It’s a temporary therapeutic aid that reduces withdrawal symptoms and helps you quit smoking.

Your body gradually adjusts to having less nicotine until you no longer need any. By helping to relieve cravings, Nicorette lets you focus on disrupting the patterns that link cigarettes to so many of your daily activities.

Winning the Fight Against the World’s Leading Cause
of Preventable Death

The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids is a leading force in the fight to reduce tobacco use and its deadly toll in the United States and around the world. Our vision: A future free of the death and disease caused by tobacco.

We work to save lives by advocating for public policies that prevent kids from smoking, help smokers quit and protect everyone from secondhand smoke.

How We Fight Tobacco

To achieve our mission, we:

  • Promote public policies proven to reduce tobacco use and exposure to secondhand smoke. These include higher tobacco taxes, comprehensive smoke-free laws, well-funded tobacco prevention and stop-smoking programs, and tough regulation of tobacco products and marketing.
  • Expose and counter tobacco industry efforts to market to children and mislead the public.
  • Strengthen tobacco control efforts in the United States and worldwide by providing support and information to our many partners.
  • Mobilize organizations and individuals to join the fight against tobacco.
  • Empower a tobacco-free generation by fostering youth leadership and activism.
  • Inform the public, policy makers and the media about tobacco’s devastating consequences and the effectiveness of the policies we support.

Saving Lives in the U.S. and Around the World

In the United States, we advocate at the national, state and local levels for the proven policies that reduce tobacco use and save lives.

Internationally, the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids supports governments and non-governmental organizations in promoting and implementing these policies. We are a partner in the Bloomberg Initiative to Reduce Tobacco Use, which focuses on low- and middle-income countries where more than 80 percent of tobacco-related deaths will occur in the coming decades.

While we have made enormous progress in the United States, tobacco still kills more than 400,000 Americans every year. The worldwide death toll is at more than five million a year and climbing. With your support, we can win the fight against the world’s leading cause of preventable death.

Created in 1996, the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that accepts no government or tobacco industry funding. We rely on contributions from individuals, philanthropic foundations, corporations and other non-profit organizations.

Danielle Rios brings Interior Design From the Runway to GBK Oscar Gift Suite

Danielle Rios brings Interior Design From the Runway to GBK Academy Awards Gifting Suite

DanielleRiosImageSm

Interior Designer Danielle Rios takes inspiration from Alexander McQueen, worn by Jessica Chastain and Nicole Kidman and Anne Hathaway’s Valentino for the design of GBK’s 2013 Oscar Luxury Lounge.

Going to the many gifting suites in Los Angeles you will find that many are held in the some of the hottest and best known hotels in Hollywood and Beverly Hills. GBK is no different, except that GBK always goes one step further and does a complete design concept for each event.

It is always exciting to walk in to see what wonderful design concept they have come up with for each event and this year for the Academy Awards I was lucky enough to find out who was designing.

The following was my conversation with Danielle Rios designer and Nadine Jolson part of GBK PR all about the show and the incredible designs based on exquisite gowns from Valentino and Alexander McQueen, for this year.JW

pic daneille rios design conceptsThe Design

From Runways to Red Carpets to Oscar Lounges, Rios will showcase fashion-influenced vignettes, styled with an elegant, edgy display of furnishings and decorative touches at the lounge for Nominees and Presenters.  The celebrity-gifting event will be held at the Sofitel Hotel in Los Angeles on Friday February 21st and Saturday February 22nd from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

“I believe that there is always the possibility for style and unexpected glamour,” says Rios, “I am thrilled and honored to be working with the leader in luxury gift lounges, GBK.” – Danielle Rios

Rios, a former Tadashi model, takes her experience from the runway to interior design for high-end residential, hospitality and commercial designs. By infusing her knowledge and expertise from both worlds, Rios established a unique trademark in creating fashionable interiors. The mixing of fashion sensibilities and interior design is a collective approach that she takes with every job.

“Time-honored style and fresh avant-garde elements create dynamic groupings and spaces,” Rios says.  A modernist at heart, Rios adds a traditional twist into her designs.

Contributing manufactures and contractors are: Elitis wall coverings and Bergamo and Rubelli fabric by Donghia Inc., Gaetano fabric by Elan Collections, Leather by Moore & Giles Inc., Nolita Sofa from the Magni Collection, Kailash Table by Chista, Grand Facet by Gary Hutton, Sophia Floor Lamp by Fuse Lighting, Reborn Antiques, Ryan Gallery, and John Jory LLC. s

Rios received her Bachelors of Science for Architectural Interior Design from the University of Nevada Las Vegas. She is a registered Interior Designer and Associate for AIA in the state of Nevada and has offices in Los Angeles and Las Vegas.

Danielle Rios 02 shDanielle Rios

Danielle’s high expectations and personal drive have launched her into an exciting venture of design and construction development. Working on multi-million dollar estates, commercial properties and collaborating with Clientele has proven to be a successful endeavor. Since the commencement of her business, the focus has been on predominately high-end residential, hospitality and commercial design. This past year however, Danielle has expanded her creativity to antique furniture importation and renovation. Creating unique pieces into timeless furniture with an updated style and sense of elegance has expanded her savvy expertise in design.

Prior to Danielle creating her own business, her formative years were rooted in hospitality design. She worked and cultivated her skill for two leading design firms in Las Vegas for six years. Soon after, those connections led to a joint design venture that launched luxury international hospitality projects. It was during those formative years that she realized that her enthusiasm for design was geared around creating alluring, exciting spaces and adjusting with an ever-changing world.

Danielle Rios was born in Puerto Rico. She received her Bachelors of Science for Architectural Interior Design from the University of Nevada Las Vegas and is a registered Interior Designer in the state of Nevada. Danielle is currently operating out of Las Vegas and Los Angeles.

He wrote two of the six episodes for the TV series Police Squad! in 1982, and did an audio commentary for its release on DVD in 2006. He also had a small role in the 1983 film Flashdance.

Wuhl was in the beginning of the music video to Madonna‘s 1985 hit “Material Girl.”

From 1996 to 2002 he wrote and starred in the HBO series Arli$$ as the title character, an agent for high-profile athletes. From 2000 to 2001, he was a frequent panelist on the ESPN game show 2 Minute Drill, often quizzing the contestants on sports-related movies. Wuhl was a player in the Game Show Network‘s Poker Royale series, a competition between pros and comedians. In 2006, he starred on HBO in a one-man-show, Assume the Position with Mr. Wuhl, where he taught a history class to show how history is created and propagated in a similar fashion to pop culture.
