The real estate sector changing the fastest is retail, author and futurist Christopher Lee said Tuesday during a visit to Richmond. The country is over-retailed, as more people shop online and the need for brick-and-mortar stores shrinks, he said. Lee was keynote speaker at “Leaders Predict the Future”, the sixth annual commercial real estate forum presented by Commonwealth Commercial Partners, a commercial real estate company based in Henrico County. About 300 people attended the afternoon event at The Westin Richmond Hotel in Henrico County.
