Jerry Slusky's Next Challenge
Jerry Slusky is a partner at Smith Slusky Law and is recognized as one of the top real estate planning, zoning, development and financing lawyers in the region. He served as President of the Jewish Federation from 1994-95 and was inducted into the Midwest Real Estate News Hall of Fame. What is perhaps most noteworthy about Slusky is that, even with a career spanning over 40 years, he's showing no signs of slowing down.
In addition to a robust legal career, Slusky is at the helm of an apartment development firm, SB Communities. Founded in 2012, SB Communities is dedicated to setting a new paradigm of style, service, and options in the landscape of Midwest apartment living. SB apartment communities can be found in Grand Island, Kearney, and a new expansion into Ankeny, Iowa. "The response has been great," Slusky says of each new apartment. "We're excited to settle into a new community and grow right along with it."
Jerry Slusky is also the mind behind The CRE Summit, a highly anticipated annual conference event for commercial real estate industry professionals. It is the largest of its kind in the Midwest, breaking attendance records year after year. The upcoming Summit with mark its 28th year, but Slusky is not settling there. Plans to add another event under the CRE Summit name are underway. "This event will narrow in its focus on the present and future of technology in the commercial real estate industry," Slusky explains.
Taking into account Slusky's personal outlook, it's no wonder how he keeps the pace. "It's easy to keep going when you're always looking forward," he says. "I'm always open to the next collaboration or the next challenge. That keeps the momentum going."
