Company: Millennium Commercial Properties
Years in the Industry: 1
Where are you originally from? I was born in China and grew up in Las Vegas. I have been living here for over 10 years. I really like the community and the people.
What has NAIOP provided you that has helped you grow professionally or personally? Being part of NAIOP has helped me to expand my professional network in the local Las Vegas market. Commercial real estate is a people business, and relationship building is a key element in this industry. Having a deep and strong network in the local community has helped me to stay informed about market trends and news.
What has been your favorite experience? I saw my UNLV colleague at a NAIOP breakfast who I haven’t seen for at least 5 years. What a small world! We were waiting in line to get coffee at the breakfast event, and then we recognized each other.
Who Have I met or become closer friends with at NAIOP: I met Linda Ly at NAIOP and we became close friends. She introduced me to many NAIOP members and professionals in the industry. Thank you Linda!
What do you want your legacy to be in the Southern Nevada community? I want to build innovative projects that have creative designs and technology.
