April 4th, 2013 • By: bcchrisc News, Uncategorized

March 28, 2013 – Braddock Commercial Real Estate Services hosted the first Braddock Business Forum at the Old Town Theatre in Alexandria, VA.  The event served not only as an introduction to the now year-old company, but also as a forum to discuss the current economic trends and their impact on the commercial real estate market.  Christopher Campagna, President of Braddock Commercial, provided a brief description of the company along with a market outlook, followed by a presentation by local businessman and author Jim Garland (Practical Guide to Exceptional Living) on the mental approach required to be successful.

In attendance were local business leaders, real estate professionals, members of the city staff, and Alexandria City Mayor Bill Euille.  Coming off the success of this event, Braddock Commercial has labeled it the first in a series that will continue as the company grows.  We thank all those that came and supported the Braddock Business Forum.
