The Professionals’ Choice for Real Estate Jobs

Good Jobs, Goodbye


When All of the politicians All of the time agree and Bernie Sanders, Donald Trump, and Obama are all on the same page, it’s going to affect the Real Estate industry. Foreign tax inversion as tax dodge (to escape the 39% US corporate tax rate versus on average 25% or less elsewhere) came to a grinding halt as Pfizer and Allergen terminated their $160 billion deal in reaction to US Treasury changes.
