In preparation for our Women of Influence special feature and retreat, Real Estate Forum and together is putting a spotlight on the achievements of women in commercial real estate. This year, we collected nominations across a number of fields, with the awards to be presented at our inaugural GlobeSt.ELITE Women of Influence Conference and this year’s amount of entries, was our biggest yet.

As always, our seasoned editorial team was seeking the best of the best across the commercial real estate spectrum. In evaluating the entries, we took into account a number of factors, including: the nominee’s impact on, and reputation within, her firm and broader professional community; the nominee’s professional career highlights, from dealmaking savvy and innovation to client satisfaction and personal growth; a proven ability to achieve goals and display ingenuity in terms of creative thinking and problem solving; her dedication to furthering the development of her field and the role of women within it; accomplishments and involvement in her company, the CRE industry and broader social community;  a personal commitment to the highest ethical standards, service and excellence; and so much more.

Since 1983, Forum’s Women of Influence has recognized remarkable commercial real estate professionals who have significantly influenced the market or had outstanding successes in the past year. It is in that spirit that we’re launching our first-ever Women of Influence Conference will celebrate the women who drive the commercial real estate industry forward.

At this year’s event, we will honor the winners at the event July 10-11th in Broomfield, CO, at a special awards ceremony cocktail reception and gala dinner. The inaugural GlobeSt.ELITE Women of Influence Conference celebrates the women who drive the commercial real estate industry forward. In panel discussions throughout the event, these influential leaders will discuss the critical issues facing CRE now and in the future, what it means to be a woman in business today and CRE’s place in the #MeToo era. They will discuss what they are doing to promote diversity in the upper levels of management and what the industry can do to position itself for a more inclusive future.

The field of broker-tenant representative was open to commercial real estate agents whose primary function is to advise tenants in space decisions. This award wasn’t necessarily given to the highest dealmakers in the field. More importantly, we were seeking those professionals who have exhibited a remarkable ability to consistently meet their clients’ needs. Brokers nominated had a high level of integrity and discipline, and were driven, entrepreneurial and passionate about the art of the deal. Those recognized in this category were well known among her growing roster of clientele as a creative problem-solver who doesn’t stop until she finds the best solution—and often gets repeat business as a result.
