Mumbai, April, 2015: It was a gripping evening at the Thadomal Shahani Centre for Management where a session on “Is the Real Estate Boom Over?” brought out pertinent insights from sector experts. The session was part of the School of Real Estate’s fourth convocation ceremony. An engaging panel discussion met an excited batch of students who grasped the many nuances of the much-talked about real estate boom.
The Bandra premises of TSCFM witnessed the presence of eminent industry players including Anju Narain, Deputy General Manager, Tata Housing and Development; Reema Kundnani, Vice President, Oberoi Realty; Mona Jalota, Operations and Strategy, Coldwell Banker and Vishal Doshi, Vice President, Marketing and Sales, Rajesh Life Spaces.
That the real estate sector is headed for transformational times was a common thought that resonated among the panelists. Giving importance to the client post sales is an important aspect in the real estate industry. The panelists were quick to add certain important pointers such as functioning with a good government and ethical norms. There are ups and down in the real estate industry but one should know how to overcome by building trust and being persistent. The discussion ended by the panelists emphasizing that the customer is important and that you should be a one stop shop which only happens if more value added services are put across to the customers.
A keen engagement level from students while quizzing the panel members was a sight to watch. The session gave way to networking opportunities for the students who excitedly interacted with the real estate luminaries.
Akhil Shahani, Director, Thadomal Shahani Centre for Management (TSCFM) extended his gratitude to all the panelists and said, “It feels great to host an august representation from the real estate sector. This sector as a whole has been facing both headwinds and tailwinds resulting in a state of flux. I am personally most thrilled to see the enthusiasm among our students. The momentum of such evenings is going to touch its peak this year with many such insightful sessions in store.”
