“I wanted to thank you as your podcast has been an introduction for me into commercial real estate. I first found your podcast during the summer going into my senior year of college. This is where I first learned of James Nelson and other industry leaders that I reached out to. I reached out to James at the beginning of my senior year, and he was very helpful and introduced me to a lot of other people in the business. But given the market conditions, it was difficult finding a full-time job in investment sales after graduation. I continued to stay in touch with James, and after a year of following up with him, I asked him if I could come on as a part-time intern. James agreed and I started interning with the team in September. In early December, Avison Young’s research analyst quit without providing a two-week notice, and the team was left scrambling to put together the Q4 property sales report, which was his main responsibility. I was able to step in and complete the report, and after completion was offered the full-time research analyst role. I wanted to share this with you because your podcast helped me tremendously during my job search.”
