President Message for 2019

Wednesday, February 13, 2019  

New Year’s Greetings to everyone at Central Texas Commercial Association of Realtors!

I am DeLea Becker, CTCAR’s 2019 President. I wanted to introduce myself and present some of the organization’s goals this year and highlight the many benefits of CTCAR to your business and career.

As the founder of Beck-Reit Commercial Real Estate and several affiliated businesses, I know first-hand the importance of always building relationships and deepening my knowledge of new aspects of real estate. It’s also crucial to stay on top of Central Texas’ ever-evolving market conditions, and CTCAR’s programs and networks keep real estate professionals in-the-know on a real-time basis.

I’ve been a CTCAR member since 2013 and served on the board for six years. It has been especially gratifying to develop wonderful friendships that have, coincidentally, resulted in numerous property transactions that have benefited all involved. I speak from my heart when I say that CTCAR has been a big influencer in my day-to-day business activities and overall development growth. CTCAR is a game changer for its members!

The next year or two are sure to present many challenges, as Austin is probably the most rapidly changing metro area in America today. That means many things — daily changes in market dynamics, increased competition within the industry and a complex regulatory environment.

It’s not a popular topic, but there is always the potential for a market slowdown. After all, real estate has proven over many years to be a cyclical business, and we are now in uncharted territory as we enter a 9th year of strong growth. In fact, the country as a whole has never experienced a market upswing of this length. A market adjustment is inevitable. We just don’t know the when and wherefores.  CTCAR is committed to being your resource for weathering storms ahead, as well as mastering this very competitive, vibrant market.

Upturn or downswing, there is no time like the present for my primary 2019 leadership goal: This is CTCAR’s Year of Recognition.

We want our Members, Committee Volunteers, Board Directors and Sponsors to be recognized across Central Texas for their contributions to the community and the professionalism each brings to the real estate industry. We will be seeking as many ways as possible to draw attention to our members’ excellence through the media, civic and business organizations and through other marketing means.

It is a true honor to be your president and collaborate with exceptionally hard-working, dedicated, skilled, successful and influential real estate professionals. I am personally committed to helping all of you reach your business goals. We need each other to thrive in the dynamic Lone Star State.

My best wishes for all in 2019,
DeLea Becker
Beck-Reit Commercial Real Estate
CTCAR 2019 President
