Real Estate Committee
2017 Recap

By Marc D. Jonas, Esq., Co-chair, Real Estate Committee

T

he Real Estate Committee wrapped up a busy and
productive 2017. Beginning in January, and including
the final program in November, the committee offered 10
programs and CLEs.

In case you missed them, the more recent programs held in
October and November were captured on video and should be
available to view at a later date. Stay tuned or contact the MBA's
CLE Department for details and information.

The year concluded before a packed house with a timely postelection CLE program entitled, "A Conversation with President
Judge Thomas M. DelRicci." Stressing
the mantra of excellence, Judge DelRicci
spoke about significant strides taken by the
Montgomery County Court of Common
Pleas, including the marked acceleration
of civil trials and innovative programs, all
designed to expedite the disposition of cases.
Following the President Judge's comments,
those in attendance had the opportunity to
hear from Judge-Elect Wendy G. Rothstein
and Judge-Elect Jeffrey S. Saltz. Committee
member and State Representative Kate Harper
was also on hand to share a draft amendment
to section 908 of the Pennsylvania
Municipalities Planning Code with regard to
decisions and appeals for input.

Other programs and CLEs for 2017 included presentations
by: Joan Righter Price, Esq., former solicitor to the Montgomery
County Board of Assessment Appeals;
Fran Hanney, Traffic Services Manager for
PennDOT Engineering District 6-0; Jeanne
Sorg, Montgomery County Recorder of Deeds;
Congressman Brendan Boyle; Montgomery
County Sherriff Sean Kilkenny, Esq.; and Joel
Bernbaum, Esq., who discussed office technology
in the context of divorce and real estate law.

October's program featured a CLE
presented by the Honorable Robert "Robin"
Simpson, of the Commonwealth Court of
Pennsylvania, joined by Committee Co-chair
Marc Jonas. The program focused on a recent
land use decision from the United States
Supreme Court, the issue of Airbnb uses in
zoning, and other topical issues. Less than a
week prior, PennDOT Secretary Leslie Richards presented
a CLE on one of her new initiatives, PennDOT Connects.
