How long have you been working in commercial real estate?
How did you first get into real estate?
After 2 years teaching skiing in Crested Butte, CO, I moved to Denver looking for my first "real" job. My father gave me the idea of trying commercial real estate, saying his friends in that business "play a lot of golf and do well financially." I don't play golf but fortunately have enjoyed success professionally. I cold called top Denver commercial real estate firms, and took a job in 1995 as an office "databank" researcher for what then was known as CB Commercial.
