Here are all three parts of the three-part video series that make up the 2020 AZRE Forum, the annual mid-year market report that looks at the factors that are driving the Phoenix economy and commercial real estate industry. The three panels of industry leaders discuss the impact of the pandemic-caused economic slowdown and how it is affecting the commercial real estate market.
