PinPoint Commercial wins 2nd Annual Shark Tank

ULI Austin held its 2nd Annual Developer Shark Tank on April 26, 2017.  Tailored after the popular TV show and similar events produced at ULI’s national Fall Meetings, this year’s program featured two local real estate developers who went head-to-head to vet their proposals to a panel of “Sharks”- expert investors bringing decades of experience to the tank. The program strives to give the audience a behind-closed-doors look at an investment committee review process, as well as feedback to the competing developers to help them fine-tune their proposals for real life presentations.

The investment opportunity most favored by the panel of Shark’s was Elias Yazbeck, from PinPoint Commercial, with a luxury assisted-living facility in Circle C Ranch, southwest of Austin’s primary MSA.  (View Elias’s Presentation)

The audience, however, expressed its favor through online voting for Sean Garretson, Pegasus Planning & Development, a 24 acre mixed-use, agrarian community in Elgin, TX.
