In response to the article on page 60 of the November 2014 issue of Shopping Centers Today. Click here for the article, "It was a man's world once" by Faith Hope Consolo.
As a member of a nine woman team, this article is a great reminder of the most important aspect of our business: building relationships. While our day-to-day job description as “Leasing Representative” is to find tenants and retailers to lease shopping center vacancies, the foundation of this industry is built on the relationships we build with those tenants, our colleagues and most importantly, our clients.
I’m so fortunate to have built relationships on my team with so many amazing women that I look up to immensely. Taking what I’ve learned from them and translating that to day-to-day relationship building with clients and tenants, not only makes navigating this business a little easier, but makes each day that much more enjoyable and meaningful.
