“There’s no mistaking the fact that commercial real estate is a male-dominated industry,” says Commercial Real Estate Broker Stephanie Clark. “But each year, more and more women get their start in the field.”
Clark joined NAI NP Dodge in 2016 and is proud to be part of a company that values diversity, she says. “Women bring a certain dynamic to the table. At NAI NP Dodge, men and women are supportive of each other and we partner on deals particularly when it’s needed at the beginning of one’s career. Agents helping agents is a wonderful thing.”
The company’s president, Deb Graeve, is also female, Clark points out.
“To my knowledge, she is the only female president of a commercial brokerage in Omaha,” Clark says. “Deb hires for competency and is supportive of our career goals.”
It’s a good time to be in what she calls a “dynamic industry.”
“Omaha has a great deal of development happening right now,” she says. “Unlike stocks or bonds, commercial real estate is a tangible asset. People like to own real property.”
As a broker, Clark’s focus is to help owners find tenants for their buildings and to help businesses of all sizes find spaces to fit their unique needs.
“I think like an owner when it comes to buying and selling. People generally want to do business with people they like and trust,” she says. “In addition, I work with the long term in mind. Long-term relationships are important to me. I’m not looking for a deal as much as a valued relationship with my clients.”
