1. The rising stars of real estate.
There are many ties between Wall Street & real estate.
Blackstone’s or not big bets on warehousesAnd single-family homes, financial firms rethinking their office spaceWall Streeters, or? spending millions on high-profile homesThere are deep ties between the two worlds.
It’s fitting that we highlight Insider’s. third-annual list of rising stars in real estate.
Insider reviewed more than 100 nominations and analyzed our reporters’ deep Rolodexes to identify the top 30 young professionals in residential or commercial real estate.
Hana R. Albers, Insider’s real estate deputy editor, was my guide to what stood out on this year’s list. Two of the main themes — the future of the office and home-pricing algorithms — are near and dear to Wall Street’s heart.
Executives at financial firms are constantly discussing the former. Some want to get employees back to work, while others attempt to understand how a hybrid approach can impact company culture. The second boils down to trying tech to automate or innovate a key part of the business. Wall Street is an expert in this area.
Hana chose a few people Hana found particularly relevant to our audience.
Megan LeMense (34), a former WeWorker, is currently thinking about the future office in her role as Raise Commercial Real Estate. Sam Stone, 34 has his eyes on the future, especially one that is more digital. He is the director for product management, pricing and data products at the ailing iBuyer OpenDoor.
Blackstone would not be on any real-estate list if it didn’t include it. Kanaai Shah is the youngest member in the class, at 23 years old. He is focused on affordable housing investments to the large investment firm.
Our list doesn’t only include those who make a lot of money. Maya Abood (34), is a housing and planning analyst for the City of Los Angeles Housing Department. She works on everything from an Eviction Defense Program to establishing a plan of community housing.
