SAN DIEGO – Cassidy Turley BRE Commercial, San Diego’s market leader in commercial real estate services, today announced that Jeff Gilbert, one of the company’s office sales and leasing specialists, received a $2,000 scholarship from the San Diego chapter of the Society of Industrial and Office Realtors (SIOR).
The SIOR San Diego chapter scholarship is offered to San Diego State University (SDSU) students with a special interest in a real estate career in San Diego. The scholarship is only available to members of The Real Estate Society at SDSU, in which Gilbert is a member and former Career Development Chairman. He received the scholarship in December 2010 after applying in November.
The Real Estate Society at SDSU was created six years ago by two real estate majors at SDSU. Since its inception, The Real Estate Society has grown to 100+ members on campus. The organization helps students network with San Diego real estate professionals as well as learn about the real estate industry. The organization provides on-site case studies that often take students out of the classroom and on to development sites of future homes and commercial buildings as well as provides forums where real estate professionals speak to Real Estate Society members about their experiences in the industry.
“I am honored to receive this scholarship from SIOR,” said Gilbert. “As an alumnus of SDSU and former Career Development Chairman of the Real Estate Society, I understand the importance of acknowledging students who are passionate about a career in real estate. I am grateful to organizations like SIOR, who continually reach out to students and help them enhance their career opportunities.”
At Cassidy Turley BRE Commercial, Gilbert specializes in corporate office tenant representation, R&D leasing, property acquisitions and dispositions in central San Diego County.
Prior to joining Cassidy Turley BRE Commercial in 2009, Gilbert worked at Marcus & Millichap in investment services for The Volen Group. He started his career in real estate in 2003 as an acquisitions analyst and property management and leasing agent for Advanced Real Estate Services in Lake Forest, CA.
Gilbert graduated from SDSU in 2010 with a B.S. in Business Administration with an emphasis in real estate.
