The AZRE Forum will be held on Aug. 3 at the Camby and John Carlson, president at Mark-Taylor, will sit on one of the three feature panels. The first two panels will focus on the multifamily, retail, office and industrial commercial real estate sectors in Arizona. The final panel will give an update on the state of the commercial real estate industry in Arizona.

Carlson will be speaking on the panel focusing on Arizona’s multifamily and retail markets.

Tickets for the AZRE Forum can be purchased here. Last year, the AZRE Forum focused on a variety of trends including access to capital, infill development and much more.

Here is a closer look at Carlson.

Carlson was appointed president of Mark-Taylor last September, after climbing the ranks of Mark-Taylor Residential since he joined in 2002. He was promoted to asset manager in 2005 and then vice president in 2010. Now as president, his core responsibilities include oversight of operations, strategy, execution and growth of Mark-Taylor Residential.
