After a run of more than 10 years for the bull market, there are signs that the U.S. economy is slowing down. The latest evidence is a drop in third-quarter GDP growth to 1.9% from 2% in the second quarter.

Is that slowdown also affecting the commercial real estate markets? Maybe so, but there are moves savvy investors can make in order to maximize opportunities in real estate, according to the panelists in TheStreet's free CrowdStreet webinar - Investing in 2020: Is Commercial Real Estate a Bright Spot Amidst Slowing Growth? 

Joining host Katherine Ross from TheStreet were Brent Hieggelke, chief marketing officer of CrowdStreet; Townsend Baldwin, portfolio director of Stockwise Capital Management; and Jake Velaquez, director of commercial Leasing at Compass Commercial Real Estate.
