Power Women: Bisnow’s 10 Part Series
Every year, Bisnow San Francisco features an online, 10-part series highlighting some of the top leaders in commercial real estate. The series, “Bay Area Power Women,” recognizes 50 influential players in the industry. This week, San Francisco Executive Director Margaret Duskin was among those featured.
Early Career to Executive Director
During an informational interview process in college, Margaret Duskin learned there were no women in office leasing in San Francisco. This was not reasonable, in her view, and she took up the challenge to break into the field. Now as an executive director and a recognized office market expert, Margaret says she is constantly inspired by being able to solve problems and help others, both in business and in higher pursuits.
“ Ramping up for a career in commercial real estate in the Bay Area is a two- to three-year process. It is critical for anyone trying to get started in the industry to select an employer that cares about women as a successful part of the organization. ”
Sound Advice: Breaking Into Commercial Real Estate
Ramping up for a career in commercial real estate in the Bay Area is a two- to three-year process. It is critical for anyone trying to get started in the industry to select an employer that cares about women as a successful part of the organization, she says, not simply in support roles, but as leaders and achievers.
Technology has aided the quality and delivery of work product and some communication, but Margaret says analysis and reporting are not enough to provide the service, interaction and guidance needed for optimum results.
Margaret enjoys spending time with her husband at their home in wine country and cheering on her Bay Area sports teams.
