TEANECK, N.J., April 28, 2014 – Sponsored by the Northeast New Jersey Chapter of the Appraisal Institute, the 8th Annual Meadowlands Conference is slated for Wednesday, May 7, 2014 at the Marriott Glenpointe in Teaneck.

"Our main focus will be on the forces driving real estate values statewide," said Rudin. "We will also address the national trends that are important in terms of understanding local real estate values in the Meadowlands submarket and the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area."

Joining Rudin on the panel will be John Azarian of the Azarian Group, Kevin Taub of Marcus & Millichap and Anne Strauss-Wieder of A. Strauss-Wieder, Inc.
