How long have you been in the CRE industry: I started working in commercial real estate in college as an intern for my uncle, Lou Proto. I have been in this industry for 13 years.
Was this your chosen profession and why: I studied entrepreneurship in college and I already knew then that I had the real estate bug. After being introduced to the CRE industry, it took some time to find my niche. I have found my passion and enjoy working with mid size growing companies to help them manage and control their facility maintenance and repair spending.
