Since October, BURIED would be one word that describes the past four months. With my resignation after 12 years of working with the same team in commercial real estate, came a tailspin of emotions, adventures and reaching for as much courage as I could find. The inspiration for finally writing this blog today came because I am buried…in snow and stuck in the house. When I woke up at 6 am I could not even open the front door to let the dogs out because about 22 inches of powder lay outside. I share this amount in a very positive manner; I am not complaining whatsoever. It looks like a winter wonderland in our yard, the road and as far as I can see. The snow is glistening and glowing in the sun. Snow is so very peaceful and mesmerizing.
On May 22nd, 2009 I acted on a decision, a decision that was very hard to made. This decision came from my heart and deep down I knew it was the right thing to do. June 1st I formed Corporate Advisors specializing exclusively in Tenant Representation in the Corporate Real Estate industry and on November 6th dissolved Corporate Advisors becoming CresaPartners in Pittsburgh.
We have been blessed by finding the right location for our new office, recruiting a truly excellent team and by loyal clients who are committed to standing by me through this change. As we closed out 2009, we were delighted with our progress and entered 2010 with clear objectives and a relatively direct path to achieve them. Wow, I am making this sound easy again.
