Next Generation Honoree: Port San Antonio’s Will Curtis Brings Fellow Veterans into CRE

As director of leasing with Port San Antonio, Will Curtis has been involved with transactions totaling more than $1 billion, and has managed more than $500 million in commercial properties. Port San Antonio is a master-planned, 1,900-acre industrial and logistics campus on the site of the former Kelly Air Force Base.

Curtis put himself on a fast track for success after seven years in the Army: within four years of coming into the industry, he’d earned his Certified Property Manager designation, and his CCIM designation a year after that.

Those are just some of the reasons we chose Curtis to be one of the Texas 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.

Curtis hasn’t kept his success to himself. He is especially focused on bringing fellow veterans along with him, and helping them become successful. As an instructor teaching new and residential agents the basics of commercial real estate, he has established a goal of seeing his students reach $1 billion in transactions collectively.

For veterans in particular, Curtis serves as a mentor with Veterati, a group aimed at helping members of the military excel in the civilian job market. He also runs a small Facebook group geared toward military veterans that are real estate professionals.
