November CRE Panel… Save the Date!!

Save The Date… November 2, 2016

23 Oak Branch Dr, Greensboro NC

PTCREW is excited to announce that this years CRE panel will be discussing the development of The Steven Tanger Center for Performing Arts.

At its August 2013 meeting, City Council approved a financing agreement in the amount of $7.6 million for the purchase of property along N. Elm and Lindsay streets and Summit Avenue. Since then an unprecidented $35 million has been raised so far in private support for this project.

The Steven Tanger Center for the Performing Arts will be a 3,000-seat facility — with a facade of limestone and glass — and feature a grand lobby, a rooftop terrace that will overlook the new LeBauer Park, unparalleled sight lines of the stage and a sound system designed to accommodate a vast range of performing arts productions. Nationally renowned architects who specialize in these facilities have just completed the designs for the exterior and lobby and are putting the finishing touches on the design of other areas in the building, including the auditorium. The plans are the direct result, in large part, of input received in 2012 from the community.

Panelists will be:






Zack MathenyPresident Downtown Greensboro Incorporated to discuss economic development impact to the city and region


Walker Sanders/The Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro to discuss process of planning, fund raising and design


Matt Brown/Greensboro Coliseum Complex to discuss facility management and operations

The event will be moderated by:


Brent Christensen/Greensboro Partnership

March 2013 Luncheon

PTCREW LOGO VERTICAL-ANNIVERSARY-TEXTTOP-3b-webWe reached another milestone this month as part of our year long celebration of our 5th anniversary as a CREW Chapter, with the unveiling of our new website and branding.

Danielle Hatfield and Brandon Pierce of Experience Farm unveiled our chapter logo and website today over lunch at Magnolia Manor. The Experience Farm team worked closely with CREW Network to bring our chapter brand in alignment with the national CREW Network brand.

Did you know, that as part of a national networking organization, we are over 8,000 members strong? 60% of CREW members report an annual income in excess of over $100,000.  PTCREW 2013 President, Carol Faucette of Investors Title, shared her vision of growing our chapter membership with the new website and through a membership drive. She encouraged members to be more thoughtful and active in the national CREW Network as well as our own.

On working with Title Sponsor, Experience Farm, Carol shares; “Our partnership with Experience Farm has been invaluable in bringing this project to fruition. I cant say enough good things about their guidance and patience with us as we traveled in very unfamiliar waters.” Carol goes on to share ” With Danielle and Brandon’s direction,  we are finally able to give our membership the tools necessary to grow our membership and expand PT CREW’s network.  I believe that our members will impact the landscape of commercial real estate in the Triad and beyond through the strength and vision of PT CREW.  I am so proud of what we’ve accomplished thus far in 2013 and am looking forward to seeing the fruit of our efforts for years to come.”

Armed with brochures, chapter business cards and post cards, members were encouraged to be proactive in growing their network and net worth by actively inviting potential members to events as well as cultivating relationships with each other. As part of the award winning “I Choose CREW” campaign, members also received a lapel pin to wear to future CREW Network and PTCREW events.

Immediate Past President and Special Events Officer,  Christina Pearsall, introduced and helped us welcome three new members.  We are so pleased to add such dynamic women to our chapter.

Sponsorship officer, Lydia Whitley, acknowledged our sponsorship roster for 2013. As many of you know, it’s because of our sponsors that we are able to do so much throughout the year.

PTCREW March 2013 Luncheon with James F. Kirkpatrick, III of The Kirkpatrick Group at Magnolia Manor

Our speaker this month was, James F. Kirkpatrick, III of The Kirkpatrick Group. A learned history buff and skilled storyteller, Jim, explained how important it is for us to know our regions history, as it can be a useful tool when pitching to potential clients.

Jim reminded us that parks and recreation are a powerful economic engine by sharing the history of the Guilford Courthouse National Battlefield in Greensboro, North Carolina. Planning.Org agrees that “Parks provide intrinsic environmental, aesthetic, and recreation benefits to our cities. They are also a source of positive economic benefits.”

How have the proximity of parks helped you make a sale or possibly influence a business decision? Share your thoughts by leaving a comment.
