New York, NY According to the New York City office for Avison Young, The Nelson Report, a new podcast series hosted by head of tri-state investment sales James Nelson, has been launched.

Nelson, who has been involved with the sale of over 400 properties and loans surpassing $4 billion in value during his 20-year career, will use the podcast to explore the major real estate issues of the day with leading commercial real estate executives.

The series will not only address brick-and-mortar real estate deals and strategies but will deconstruct the broader issues and policies contributing to the ever-complex commercial real estate markets in New York City.

The inaugural episode, featuring Seth Pinsky, EVP at RXR Realty and former president of the New York City EDC, explores the collapse of the deal to bring Amazon to New York City – and what can be learned from it. 

The second episode features an inspirational interview with Ryan Serhant, head of the Serhant Team at NestSeekers, bestselling author, producer and star of Bravo’s two-time Emmy nominated realty television series, Million Dollar Listing New York, and its spin-off, Sell it Like Serhant, and star of the Ryan Serhant Vlog on
