Mentorship Program

Mentorship Program

NAIOP Austin is pleased to offer a mentoring program that provides Developing Leaders with valuable opportunities for personal and professional growth through focused, 1-hour sessions with mentors of their choosing in the commercial real estate community.

Visit the mentoring program homepage and check regularly to meet our mentors. Watch as more mentors join and post their biographies and mentorship session dates.


All NAIOP Austin members over the age of 35 are eligible to become mentors.

You as a mentor would engage in one-hour sessions spread over several months with mentees to provide career advice, offer wisdom on professional and personal development issues, and to share experience in the industry. There are no assignments, tasks, or deadlines; each session is simply intended to be a comfortable, topics-based conversation regarding subjects that are important to the mentee. The onus is on the mentee to drive the program, and you as a mentor can allocate as many or as few hours as you choose over several months.

If you’re open to gifting your time and talents or have questions, please let us know by contacting program chairs, Brett Zimmerman or Jon Devita.


NAIOP Austin’s Mentorship Program provides Developing Leaders a special forum for personal and professional growth through focused, one‐on‐one learning sessions with accomplished professionals in the industry. A specially designed, dedicated mentorship portal allows each participant to familiarize themselves with the program mentors, and book 1‐hour sessions with mentors of your choice to discuss career topics important to you. You will have the ability to not only select which mentor to meet with, but to meet with multiple mentors if you so choose; you get out of this what you put in!

Developing Leader members are invited to register and participate. The deadline to register and participate as a mentee is June 1, 2022. A one-time administrative fee of $75.00 will be charged to mentees upon registration.

Register to be a Mentee


To kick-off this program, NAIOP Austin will be hosting a happy hour on June 1. Details regarding time and location will be forward once program registration is complete.

Please contact Beth Gulding with any questions.
