Understanding municipalities is a very important job for a commercial real estate broker. I just had the honor of graduating from the Town of Cary’s School of Government. It was an eight week study of how the Town functions and operates. We spent a great deal of time learning about planning and infrastructure, which is invaluable information to know when working with those who want to do business in Cary. We also learned about the approvals process and how projects are taken from conception to finished product. Knowing how to navigate the sometimes complicated world of entitlements will save my clients money and help them reach their goal.
I would highly recommend the School of Government to anyone interested in becoming more involved in their communities. It’s a wonderful place to meet some great people and learn more about how our towns operate.
