Member Spotlight Questions
1.    What do you hope to get out of your CREW membership and/or who do you hope to network with?
I am excited to get to know and connect with as many people as possible. Being so new in the industry, I hope I am able to network with all different people in different types of positions within the real estate industry. I hope to gain as much knowledge as possible while also connecting with people as I grow in this industry and learn more about what I can do within it. 
2.    What does a typical day consist of for you in your current position? Currently I am an analyst so  I a lot of what I do is deal review of requested mortgage loans. I work with producers on our team to underwrite these opportunities, negotiate terms of a deal, and if we win one, I help in creating presentations for our Real Estate committees who approve loans. 
3.    What is your favorite aspect about your job? I love being able to travel and see the different projects I am working on in real life. It is really cool to be able to get out of the office and meet the people I’ve been emailing or calling and see the projects with my own eyes. 
4.    What does your company contribute to the commercial real estate industry? We provide mortgage loans for borrowers who are refinancing, acquiring or building multifamily, industrial or retail assets throughout the country. 
5.    What advice do you have to someone new to the industry? Be a sponge. There is so much to know when first getting into the business. After being in the industry for a little over a year full-time, there is a lot that goes into deals and just real estate in general. Being a sponge and asking questions is important when getting to know the ropes. (I’m still doing this myself!)
6.    What keeps you busy outside of work? Outside of work I like to stay active, I play tennis and am starting to get into golf! I also love trying new restaurants around town and spending time with friends/family.
