Phoenix, Arizona – February 7, 2018 – The Developing Leaders Forum provides commercial real estate industry professionals the unique opportunity to advance their careers by gaining insights from networking with seasoned commercial real estate professionals and peers during a two-year period. The program is specifically designed for industry professionals 35 years of age and under with at least four years of related commercial real estate experience. Recently, SVN Advisor Jonathan Levy who specializes in the office property type was accepted in the NAIOP Developing Leaders Program. He is the only professional from Arizona to be accepted into the program.

Levy recently brokered the sale of a $1,575,000 single tenant NNN leased investment with Honor Health in the strong Arrowhead submarket in Glendale. He has established many relationships with property owners in the Phoenix and west valley marketing, while maintaining a balance on both the sales and leasing sides of the business. When Levy is not deal-making you can find him volunteering for multiple CRE events throughout the year, including some volunteer work at the ‘Best of NAIOP’ and “Night at the Fights.” Managing Director at SVN Desert Commercial Advisors Perry Laufenberg said, “By being one of the few real estate professionals in the country selected to participate in the NAIOP Developing Leaders Forum, Jonathan will have a unique opportunity to interact with industry leaders across the country over the next two years. The insights he gains during this period will benefit his clients greatly.”

New York City will be the host for the National Forums Symposium in May 2018. “The Developing Leaders National Forum will allow me the opportunity to network and collaborate with the brightest and most ambitious commercial real estate professionals throughout the country,” said Levy. The program application required several components before being accepted into the forum including the applicant’s goals for the NAIOP program. Additional documents were also required to show how the applicant would elevate progress should they be admitted. One thing for certain is Jonathan Levy will be one of only twenty professionals involved with the program. Leadership is a mindset and Levy is one step ahead. Over the next two years, he will gain valuable insight from experts and pave the way to becoming a great leader in the commercial real estate industry, already being a recipient of the Centurion Award in 2017.
