When to Pivot Strategies in Commercial Real Estate with Chris Finlay, Ep. 548

Chris Finlay is the CEO and CIO of Lloyd Jones LLC. His journey began in the early 1970s when, in tandem with his father-in-law, he ventured into an avocado grove, even while he soared the skies as a pilot for Eastern Airlines for a remarkable 16-year stretch. As his entrepreneurial spirit took flight, Chris transitioned into the multifaceted world of real estate, leaving an indelible mark on the industry.

A pioneer in commercial brokerage, Chris Finlay revolutionized the industry with his “white shirt and tie” ethos at the helm of the Finlay companies. This catapulted the firm to become one of New England’s largest real estate organizations. With divisions in appraisal, property management, and an esteemed educational arm, Finlay’s legacy continues to shape the trajectory of real estate professionals today.

In this episode, we talked to Chris about market dynamics, strategic planning for pivoting when the market changes, why they now focus on senior housing, and much more.
