It is a wonderful opportunity to network with peers and to showcase your listings to the local brokerage community.

The Dayton’s Project has been a long process but such an amazing experience to watch a building transition thru a historic preservation and be delivered to the marketplace as a beautifully transformed building.

The flexibility and the people.
8. Any advice you have for someone considering the CRE industry?
 Be patient and understand there is no fast track to learning the business or being successful. Listen, learn and be humble which will provide a strong foundation for success down the road.
