Shifts in Health Care Industry Keep Brokers Busy


Reath, Viki, The Washington Times (Washington, DC)


Health care will be the real estate industry's most promising partner this year nationwide, according to the Ernst & Young Kenneth Leventhal Real Estate Group. But area brokers say law firms and technology are still in the driver's seat in the Baltimore-Washington region.
