Past Events

2016 Oklahoma Commercial Real Estate Forum™ - Earthquakes

A discussion to look at Earthquakes in the Sooner State


REALTORS®, appraisers, educators, developers, contractors, architects, attorneys, government planners, and others in real estate-related professions joined us for a town hall-style meeting on the increasing frequency and magnitude of earthquakes and how they’re impacting commercial real estate in Central Oklahoma.


We discussed and learned:


What’s causing earthquakes in Oklahoma


Construction methods to mitigate the impact of earthquakes


What Building Codes need to be Changed to Accommodate this Increased Frequency

of Earthquakes


Insurance options to protect your property.


Afterward, our panelists and attendees brainstormed ideas on how our industries can work together to deal with the increasing frequency of earthquakes and make recommendations for the future.
