Berkeley has learned to be nimble, efficient and self-sustaining during her decade and a half in the CRE industry. She started her career in 2000 at a boutique firm wearing multiple hats in property management, leasing, acquisitions and more. Later, at the Irvine Company, she polished her property management prowess and moved over to Bixby Land Company to lead the firm’s Asset Management functions. Her experience and diversity across these three companies impacts every search she does at RETS.
Focus: Positions from associates to mid- and senior-level management
She treasures each relationship she’s built over the years, and since joining RETS in 2012, Berkeley has relocated to The Emerald City to open RETS’ fifth office. It is here that she fell in love with the Smith Tower in the heart of Seattle. However, if Berkeley could sneak away for a week, she would land on a beach in Costa Rica.
Berkeley thrives on the independence of operating in a new region, but works closely with Kent Elliott and Jana Turner on searches throughout the West and Midwest. She believes that you should “keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about,” (Marilyn Monroe).
In fact, when she’s not working, you can find her with a glass of champagne in her hand enjoying the outdoors with her husband, son and daughter.
