What impresses you most about the firm’s culture?
That it’s a very ‘team’ oriented approach. From the partner/senior management calls we have every Monday morning where each office provides an overview of what is happening in their market/region, to the staff meetings that each specific office has which allows everyone in the office to know exactly what is happening with every deal. It’s a very inclusive, collaborative effort across the board to make each transaction successful, which translates into success for each office and the platform overall.
Why is the Moran (firm, culture, ecosystem) different from other brokerage firms?
Each office is responsible for its own region. Thus, there is no internal competition for deals, and nothing adversarial between offices. We all work from a common database of investors, developers, buyers, sellers, etc. Information and data is shared freely across all of the offices. This results in a very co-operative effort among every Moran office to insure that the client’s interest comes first and foremost.
Where do good ideas come from?
From listening to both the pros and the cons before making any potential decision. And by gathering input from a wide range of experiences and perspectives. Most of the time the idea is the easy part. It’s the implementation of the idea that poses the challenge!
What is your greatest accomplishment?
Sending both of my children successfully off to college! One is at NYU in Tisch School of the Arts. My high school senior is currently deciding where he wants to play basketball in college.
