2014 Economic Forecast Breakfast Featuring Dr. Lawrence Yun

Herndon, Va. – Over the past few years, the slowly recovering economy and its effect on the local housing market have been on the minds of many in Northern Virginia’s business community. Next month, area businesses and real estate professionals have an opportunity to hear from someone in the know: Dr. Lawrence Yun, one of the nation’s top-ranked economic forecasters and Chief Economist with the National Association of Realtors® (NAR).

Dr. Yun will share his perspective on the latest market trends and predictions, to be followed by a Q&A session, at the 2014 Economic Forecast Breakfast, hosted by REALTORS® Federal Credit Union, a division of Northwest Federal Credit Union. The event is scheduled from 7:30-9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 26, at the Credit Union (220 Spring Street, Herndon, Va.). It is free to attend, but reservations are requested.

“As our economy and the real estate market continues to gain footing, Dr. Yun’s remarks are especially well-timed,” said Victoria Gillespie, National Director of Business Development at the Credit Union, which provides business banking and lending programs geared toward real estate professionals. 

Among Dr. Yun’s work, which also includes the role of Senior Vice President of Research at NAR, is creating forecasts and participating in economic forecasting panels, such as the Blue Chip and Harvard University Industrial Economic Council. In addition to providing commentary on real estate market trends to NAR’s 1 million members, he appears regularly on financial news outlets, presents at various real estate conferences nationwide and has testified before Congress. Dr. Yun has been repeatedly named as one of the Most Influential Real Estate Leaders by INMAN News. 

“The forum offers a rare opportunity to hear from one of our country’s leading economists,” said Gillespie. “His perspective on current and future market trends will be valuable to many in the local business community.”
