CBRE Advisory & Transaction Services – Retail | Associate
It’s been one year since graduation and I am amazed at how things have unfolded since I chose to pursue real estate at the University of British Columbia. Three internships, three scholarships, one case competition, and a ton of inspiring connections later, I’ve found myself in a challenging, exciting brokerage role at CBRE in New York - an outcome that CREW played a truly integral part in. CBRE’s valuable partnership with CREW gave me and other incredible young women a unique opportunity to pursue a career with the company in a North American city of our choice. This opened up a door for me that otherwise might not have existed - relocating to a new city and new market for a new life chapter. While I sometimes still feel like I’m dreaming, the learning curve hasn’t always been easy; however, what matters is tackling these challenges in an environment with supportive mentors, a collaborative network, and an attitude that turn failures into lessons (and eventually strengths) as you progress in your career. I feel unbelievably lucky with my brokerage/real estate journey to date and look forward to new challenges and rewards to come!
