The Silicon Valley Real Estate Cycle: Another Bubble or Just Another Day?

Has the Silicon Valley “boom” peaked? What’s ahead? More smooth sailing or choppy waters?

Assessor Larry Stone will discuss the current status and trends of Silicon Valley’s real estate markets from office, industrial and retail, to single-family and apartments. He will also comment on key economic indicators, including venture capital investment, IPO’s, patents, and immigration.

A real estate investor and developer by profession, Stone has served as the elected Assessor for 24 years and has been re-elected by large majorities seven times. His constituency is larger than the governors of 13 states. Previously, Stone served 16 years as a city councilmember, including two terms as the Mayor of Sunnyvale. Delivering over 60 speeches a year on subjects ranging from the economy and public pension reform to performance management in the public sector, Stone continues to be a highly sought-after speaker entertaining and educating audiences from 50 to 5,000. Additionally, he has also been an active and effective civic leader in many fields from education, to the environment and to the arts, including an impressive personal art collection.

A native of Seattle, he has an MBA from the University of Washington, and has studied at the Institute of Politics at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. He and his wife, Carmen, have lived in Sunnyvale since 1970, where they raised three sons.

Named one of Silicon Valley’s 100 most powerful leaders by San Jose Magazine, Assessor Stone has been recognized locally and nationally. Pulitzer Prize winning author and Washington Post reporter, Haynes Johnson, described Stone in his bestselling book, Sleepwalking Through History, as “bright, articulate; an American rarity, a proven political success in a time of political failure.”

Three (3) key takeaways:

  • Real estate market trends in Silicon Valley: office, industrial and retail, to single-family and apartments.
  • Key drivers of the economy: venture capital investment, IPO’s, patents, demographics and immigration.
  • Wildcards that could shift the economy from a slowing bull market to an outright bear market, recession, or worse.

Speaker:

San Jose Magazine named him one of Silicon Valley’s 100 most powerful leaders. Pulitzer Prize winning author and Washington Post reporter, Haynes Johnson, described him in his bestselling book, Sleepwalking Through History, as “bright, articulate; an American rarity, a proven political success in a time of political failure.”

He’s been a financial manager on Wall Street, served two terms as Mayor of Sunnyvale, co-founded a successful real estate investment and development firm, and also the Arts Council of Silicon Valley.

He and his wife, Carmen, spent a night in the White House with the Clintons, President Bill, Hillary and Chelsea, got to know Fidel Castro on a U.S. Conference of Mayor’s trip to Cuba in 1977, and chatted up Muhammad Ali after a chance encounter in an elevator.

He was elected Santa Clara County Assessor in 1994, and has been re-elected by large majorities six times. He has also been an active and effective civic leader in many fields ranging from the arts, to education, to the environment.

We know him as Larry Stone: Silicon Valley’s Renaissance man with an impressive personal art collection. Please welcome the man whose constituency is larger than the governors of 13 states, Santa Clara County Assessor, Larry Stone.

Addendum: A native of Seattle, he has an MBA from the University of Washington and has studied at the Institute of Politics at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. He and his wife, Carmen, have lived in Sunnyvale since 1970, where they raised three sons.
