Tallen, who is a member of the Burnham-Moores Center for Real Estate’s policy advisory board, has long-standing ties to San Diego.

Tallen was inaugurated as a fellow in the Homer Hoyt Institute by the Hoyt President Jeffrey Fisher, PhD, professor emeritus at Indiana University (IU) and founder of the IU Center for Real Estate.

We know becoming a Professional Fellow will help extend his impressive commitments.”

It has contributed to improving the quality of public and private real estate decisions.

Tallen has a rich history with the City of San Diego, its institutions and leadership. He first arrived in San Diego in 1979 as a student-athlete, team captain and defensive star of Indiana University’s Nationally Ranked 1979 Holiday Bowl Championship football team (#15 UPI). Tallen then started his commercial real estate career in San Diego in 1998. He was recruited to lead the redevelopment and portfolio leasing for the Burnham Pacific REIT (NYSE:BPP)as a senior executive and corporate officer. BPP was a 115 property, fully integrated Real Estate Investment Trust with retail assets spanning coast to coast, under the leadership of Chairman Malin Burnham.

In 2017, through his relationships with Jeff Fisher and Norm Miller PhD, Hahn Chair of Real Estate Finance at the University of San Diego’s Knauss School of Business, Tallen was invited to join the policy advisory board at the Burnham-Moores Center for Real Estate at USD, reuniting Tallen with Malin Burnham and aligning with the Burnham-Moores Center’s Executive Director Stath Karras and Dr. Miller. Dr. Miller is also the vice president of the Homer Hoyt Institute.

“We are lucky to find professionals with the depth of knowledge that Terry brings to the table,” says Dr. Miller. “He jumped right into some of our national webinars and conferences and provided numerous industry insights that only comes from experience.”

“The value we provide to our students through our connecting students to industry professionals has been immense,” says Karras. “Terry clearly understands the importance of this relationship though his involvement at Indiana University and he has immersed himself in our real estate program as a member of our PAB, as a guest lecturer, a mentor and as an employer of USD real estate graduates. Terry has indeed provided great value to our student as an industry professional.”

“This is a truly wonderful honor,” says Tallen.” I am thrilled to be a part of this prestigious, ground-breaking institute. The opportunity to rub elbows with this extraordinary group of intellectuals and practitioners is a tremendous honor and I am deeply grateful. Additionally, it is an honor to be able to participate in the extraordinary work that Stath Karras, the BMC’s policy advisory board and USD faculty and staff are providing not only to the students at USD, but also for the impact that USD has on the City of San Diego.”
