I love to see people succeed and I love positivity.The #CREi: LinkedIn Top Influencers in Commercial Real Estate list highlights genuinely good people doing amazing things in our world. The list is intended to lift up those who great contributors, leaders and influencers in our industry. We want you to learn a little about them through their bios as opposed to simply a sequential line list of names.

Who can be on the list?

Exceptional individuals: Those who are producers in commercial real estate. Those who write about commercial real estate. Those who help producers including respected coaches, economist and subject matter thought-leaders. We don’t include real estate company handles unless they serve jointly as the handle for a top executive and the company. Also, while we love their work, in most cases we think prop tech companies and their leaders can live on other lists. In general, we are trying to include individuals who are involved in transacting or supporting commercial real estate deals of all kinds.


Pulling together a list like this takes some doing. The team spent many hours evaluating potential list makers and using sophisticated technology to rank those that met the qualifications for the #CREi designation. I want to give my partners a strong shout out and ask you to consider them for your business needs.

The List Maker team includes very creative and talented professional Sarah Malcolm at, an advertising agency focused on real estate and technology. Thank to you for your partnership!

Also, the amazing Nick Luczyszyn, CEO of Amplify OSM brought his LinkedIn tech skills to the table. I call him the “LinkedIn Ninja,” because he is the best professional I’ve ever encountered in terms of his knowledge of the platform. Look him up on LinkedIn and I bet you’ll be impressed too.
