“They are the future of our industry and, in some ways; the future is now, as young professionals are in the trenches, shaping the thinking and direction of commercial real estate. These young leaders have a drive and determination that is equal to and, in many ways, unmatched to that of their older counterparts. They’ve combined an uncanny knack for using the best of established traditions with finding ways of turning those traditions on their heads when adding their own creative spins to the equation. Their zest for giving back and innovation is an inspiration to those who have been in the business for a good many years. And, their outlook on the business is refreshing and invigorating to watch. With these leaders as the face of the industry for the next generation, it is safe to say the industry is in very good hands.” Lisa Brown, Real Estate Forum
