REF June 2017: CRE's Best Bosses 2017

True leaders manifest themselves not only through performance but also by the way their employees feel about them. As part of our upcoming Leadership Issue, Real Estate Forum is giving CRE professionals a chance to tell us what they think about their employers.

All successful leaders share similar qualities: ambition, financial prowess, people skills, etc. We’re also looking for individuals who are not only accomplished, but are likable, inspirational, innovative and who lead by example. Those one-in-a-million leaders who are not only a boon for their organizations, but also professionals whom others are clamoring to work with, and for.

We will profile the winning bosses in each category in the June 2017 Leadership Issue of Real Estate Forum. The #1 choice for CRE's Best Boss, to be determined via a confidential reader poll held in early May, will grace the cover of the magazine.

Think your leader has what it takes? Tell us by April 14.
