Advancing Careers and the CRE Industry

The NAIOP community “is filled with people who are very smart, very motivated, and are willing to help – and they are willing to do deals.”

“If you have not been to a Corporate event, you need to put it on your calendar and go now, because you get a chance to learn about national trends, to talk to national players, and find out what’s different in every market you need to know about.”
