What contributed to your success in this challenging year?
I'm incredibly fortunate to be part of the Brookfield team. We have amazing people in all aspects of our company - whether it's our legal, construction, marketing, property management or building engineering teams - and excellent assets. Even in challenging times we are able to attract great tenants and make deals that continue to add value to our portfolio.?
What will be the biggest factors affecting the regional market in 2017 and beyond?
Uncertainty stemming from our current political situation will influence short & long term businesses decisions that will ultimately have impacts upon their real estate decisions.
Anyone you want to thank?
My families -I'm lucky to have two - my home family (husband Steve and 3 daughters) and my work family (too many to list here!)?
