LA Intro to CRE

In honor of Black History Month, Cushman & Wakefield’s Los Angeles office hosted “The Wonderful World of Real Estate,” a presentation and discussion introducing college students from the LA area to the world of commercial real estate. 

Kimberly McDowell and Pip Lilly organized the event, which consisted of an overview, Q&A segment, and lunch with the firm’s local market leaders in Brokerage, Project and Development Services, Accounting, Asset Services, Research, Legal, Marketing, IT, Valuation & Advisory, and Operations. Representatives from each service line were able to speak candidly about their roles and responsibilities with the students, as well as share personal aspects about themselves and their careers, such as how they got into commercial real estate.

The Los Angeles chapter of Blacks United in Leadership and Development (BUILD) co-sponsored the event and provided lunch from local eatery Honey’s Kettle.

“Thanks to the participation of our colleagues, we were able to share our insights and knowledge with this wonderful group of young people, showing future leaders a path into our industry that they might not have known was there,” Pip said.
