What would you advise a younger person beginning a career in CRE?

Commercial real estate has matured since I started. In the late 80s and 90s, you got into the industry through banking and brokerage. There are so many more opportunities leading to commercial real estate now — you can learn a lot working with global asset managers, advisors, and real estate technology providers. And if you’re intrigued by the capital markets, but you don’t have a specific role in mind, working for an advisor, where you’ll have access to watching lots of different roles and clients while you learn the industry, can give you a great start.

Why Chatham?

We don’t simply hire employees. We invest in them. Here, you’ll find opportunities to learn, grow, and make an impact, whether it’s your first month with Chatham or your 15th year.
