 Steven Pesapane_5 Questions

After graduating from UMass Amherst in 2013, Steven worked in insurance sales for a year, but he always had an itch to start a career in Boston. Mike Weiss, who is a member of Cushman and Wakefield’s Global Occupier Services team, informed Steve of a job opening in 2014 – at the time the was DTZ – and the rest was history.

Steve took the time to tell us about his journey to the commercial real estate world, his thoughts on the current Life Science Market in Boston and the art of making a homemade pizza pie. Thanks, Steve!

What do you like most about your job?
Every day is different. You truly never know what is going to happen (good, bad or indifferent) at any given time. And I’m thankful for each day working with so many great people.

When you’re not working, where are you and what are you doing?
When I’m not working, I’m usually hanging out with friends in Boston or on the Cape. I enjoy relaxing on the beach, running, playing softball, golf and most importantly, perfecting the art of making a homemade pizza pie.

What does the Life Science Market in Boston look like five years from now?
One thing I have learned during the current pandemic is that the Life Science Market is extremely resilient. In 5-years, I expect to see more and more companies researching cures for some of the world’s most harmful diseases and making the world a better place, day-by-day. As for the lab market, I don’t see the vacancy rate rising or rents dropping any time soon (please don’t quote me on this).

What’s the professional accomplishment you’re most proud of?

When I took the leap to move to Boston and get my feet wet in the commercial real estate world at the then DTZ, I unfortunately lost my job after four short months due to a merger. It was tough. Instead of giving up, I clawed my way back into the industry through more meetings than I can count on 10 hands. And ultimately landing at a top firm such as C&W is what I am most proud of.

If you’re going out to dinner in Boston, where are you going?
Café Porto Bello in South Boston. I feel sorry for anyone that hasn’t enjoyed a Chicken Ritchie from this Southie gem.
