If you have had a mentor in your career, who was it and what did they teach you?
Camille Douglas from Lefrak. She was my professor at University and is also a power house in real estate. She was instrumental in making me feel comfortable with speaking my mind & trusting my intuition. She is also a sounding board and motivator when things need to be thought through. Its been 6 years since I took her class and she still makes an impact in my everyday work.
What trends are you seeing so far this year in your field?
This year is a year of change. Its about changing thought process and realization that the world we take for granted will not stay the same. We have never seen so many companies looking at tech in a real way. You see large real estate companies talk about their “technical stack”, a concept which was not common atall uptil a year ago. There is also a trend towards wanting more open and connected platforms which are not just driven by accounting but by the actual asset
When I am not working I am…
