Capital Markets Operations Manager

My introduction to real estate began at an early age with two parents who worked in residential real estate. I heard a lot of buzz words thrown around the house and had a lot of familiarity with the residential side of the business, but the world of commercial real estate was a completely new realm. When I graduated from Georgia Tech, I looked for jobs to follow my Finance degree and investigated many different industries, but my interest kept coming back to commercial real estate.

I entered commercial real estate as an analyst for an Industrial team at CBRE where I learned the intricacies of investment sales. As my responsibilities expanded and I got to know more about the business, I realized that I had unique skill set in team and pipeline management. I returned to Georgia Tech for the Evening MBA program in order to hone my management knowledge and skills. After graduation, I began working as a Capital Markets Operations Manager for the CBRE Southeast Multifamily team in September 2019. As an Operations Manager, much of my daily tasks revolve around leadership, creative problem solving, time management, and an ability to implement new processes seamlessly and effectively. It has been an incredibly rewarding experience to help one of the best teams in the nation become even better.
