What contributed to your success in this challenging year?
Our team benefitted from our clients' willingness to take calculated risks based on our guidance. We have the good fortune of working with landlords that recognize making a unique or bold decision is the best way to outperform the market, and we benefitted in kind.
What will be the biggest factors affecting the regional market in 2016 and beyond?
We anticipate 2017 will be the first year since 2008 since Northern Virginia will absorb in excess of 1 million sf. Also, the distinction between the top and the bottom of the market has never been more prevalent. This dynamic has resulted in our team being very selective regarding which buildings we will represent and which buildings we encourage our clients to acquire.
Anyone you want to thank?
The clients that have entrusted us to represent them. It is a privilege to partner with the greatest landlords in the market. Thank you also to my partners and team at Cushman & Wakefield. The last ten years at Cassidy/Cushman were amazing, and I believe the next ten will be even better. Thank you everyone who has helped me in 2016, I am truly grateful.
