For the sixth year in a row, Connect CRE will spotlight commercial real estate’s top dealmakers, and we’re inviting you to help us make our selections

We’re Looking for More Top Leasing and Sales Brokers

Early response has been positive for Connect CRE’s sixth annual call for Top Broker Award nominations. However, we’re looking for as wide a cross-section of sales and leasing professionals as possible. Do you know a commercial real estate broker or team who made a big impact in 2022 amid macroeconomic turbulence? Here’s an opportunity to shine the spotlight on them: just follow the link in this article and submit a nomination. 

Based on your nominations, we’ll recognize 110 leading brokers or teams for our 2023 Top Broker Awards, including both brokers who specialize in property sales and brokers who specialize in leasing. That includes:  

• Ten California winners  

• Ten Seattle/Pacific Northwest winners  

• Ten Phoenix/Southwest winners  

• Ten Texas winners  

• Ten Chicago/Midwest winners  

• Ten Boston/New England winners  

• Ten New York/Tri-State winners  

• Ten Washington, DC winners  

• Ten Atlanta/Southeast winners  

• Ten Florida/Gulf Coast winners  

• Ten National winners  

We’ll consider the deals completed by the brokers in 2022, based on the total dollar volume of deals for investment sales brokers, and the total square footage of deals for leasing brokers. The deadline for nominations is Feb. 10.
