This year, we are also running these profiles online. Today, we present the story of Brent Stamm, executive managing director with the Columbus, Ohio, office of Newmark Knight Frank. It’s our hope that you learn a bit about what it takes to become a top CRE pro from these profiles.

It’s the kind of formula that might sound boring, but that gets results.
“Commercial real estate brokerage rewards hard work. I like the fact that you get out of it what you put into it,” Stamm said. “I enjoy the people I get to work with every day and I feel very fortunate to have met so many great people throughout my career. I also like that each day is different from the last one.”
