Market Intelligence

TRAOBA members specialize in commercial real estate office transactions.  From ‘featured deal’ panels to targeted economic development updates, a key goal of the organization is the further education of its members. Each TRAOBA luncheon provides a learning opportunity through speakers who are experts in their field.  A recent example includes Trinity Partners sharing the details of their approximate $1 Billion purchase of the Duke office portfolio.

Charity Outreach

Each year, TRAOBA selects one or more charitable organizations to support.  Examples of past work include toy drives for the Salvation Army, fund-raising for Habitat for Humanity, and advocate work for Hilltop Home in Raleigh. In 2015, the Food Bank of North Carolina benefitted from the sold-out fund-raiser, ”TRAOBA Battle of the Broker Bands”.

Project Showcase

TRAOBA members have the opportunity to ‘Showcase’ available office properties at the luncheon events. The Showcase offers a valuable platform upon which to present a project's merits and receive feedback from a captive and relevant audience.  With the large number of tenant representation agents, this is a unique opportunity to ‘pitch’ a listed property.
