Don’t Count Out Office REITs

Arguably one of the biggest trends to emerge from the pandemic has been ‘work from home.’ As we worked to stop the spread of the coronavirus, we logged on to cloud, went to Zoom meetings, and collaborated virtually. And it turns out, workers liked the flexibility and companies liked some of the cost savings. It was a win-win for all parties.
