Next Generation Honoree: CushWake’s Nicole Lyon Paints Retail Picture That Helps Shape Communities
From Cushman & Wakefield’s Walnut Creek, CA office, which she joined in 2015, Nicole Lyon specializes in retail landlord and tenant representation throughout the Bay Area. To her current assignment, Lyon brings the perspective of having worked as a property manager for Colliers International, where she gained a unique understanding of the challenges faced by landlords as well as retail and restaurant operators, which she now brings to a client roster that includes Regency Centers and Terramar along with Great Clips and Pure Barre.
Those are just some of the reasons we chose Lyon to be one of the California 2018 Next Generation Award winners. Connect Media’s second annual Next Generation Awards recognize young leaders in the commercial real estate industry who are likely to be influential for years to come.
Lyon believes that what she’s doing shapes how people in a community live, work, and play. She has enjoyed particular success in assisting new developments and helping shape a community’s retail landscape. She’s also excited by working with centers that have had longer-term vacancies and need a fresh set of eyes to tell or re-tell their stories.
An accomplished painter in both oils and watercolors, Lyon puts her skill to clients’ use as part of her strategy of customizing their marketing strategies. Outside of retail, she has produced oil paintings for Jay Leno and other famous clientele.
