Did you know that 52 million Americans (1 in 6) live in economically distressed communities? This is a major problem that Congress recently took a step to fix. Thus, Opportunity Zones were created in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017.
Opportunity Zones are an innovative, flexible, and bipartisan solution for catalyzing private sector-led economic growth. In addition, they aim to connect low-income communities with much-needed capital.
In exchange, investors get a graduated series of federal tax incentives tied to long-term holdings.

SIOR Development Day is the biggest event of the year for UES.
This year the Western Missouri/Kansas Chapter of SIOR 29th Annual Development Day was held at Kansas City’s Union Station in September. SIOR is the Society of Industrial and Office Realtors.
Furthermore, SIOR Development Day provides an unparalleled opportunity to network with industry leaders, highlight new projects, explore opportunities and celebrate successes – all in one setting. It was a great event!We had fun talking to booth visitors. We also hosted a football toss activity and exciting giveaway opportunities. Following the event we randomly selected 3 lucky winners for our giveaways.
Paul Fogel with Karbank Real Estate Company won the Callaway golf club. Amanda Kunze with Citizens Bank & Trust won a Travis Kelce signed helmet and last but not least, Brent Parsons was very happy with his football signed by Chiefs star Patrick Mahomes. We had a wonderful time connecting with other likeminded companies & organizations around the area. Hope to see you next year!
