As much as real estate is about land, buildings, finance, leasing and value creation, at its core it is about people.

While specialized skills are required to execute each stage of the real estate recruiting cycle, common to it all is the ability to interact with, develop relationships and engage people.  Finding the person with the right skill set for the position is critical, but it is only one half of the formula for success.  The other half is personal fit.  Will the person get along with other team members and do they have a personality that will complement and ideally enhance the team performance?
