How did you get involved in real estate? I have been around commercial real estate my entire life. My parents owned Indian Hills shopping center in the ’80’s and ’90’s. My sister and I were their landscaping crew, and we picked up trash in the parking lot. I may not have always viewed CRE as the career path for me, but after working in other industries, it became clearer my goals aligned with what real estate provided. The conversation that ultimately led me to Landmark was initially with Ken Saville. Ken’s son, Brad Saville, was growing his brokerage and property management business. Met with Brad in January 2016, he offered me an opportunity to work on both teams. Joined them in February 2016.
Tell us about a mentor who got you started on this path and why they’re important to you. I owe my interest in commercial real estate to my parents, Don and Janice Zerbe. They have been involved in real estate since I was a child. They were in the aircraft industry as their main focus, but CRE always been a component of their life. They taught me business ethics, and what it takes to achieve your goals.
