The Broker² Award recognizes outstanding value created by a brokerage team and is exclusively available to brokers associated with projects nominated for the Awards of Excellence.

NAIOP understands that all successful commercial real estate projects are backed by a skilled team of professionals—a group that becomes more than the sum of its parts to accomplish the job—and the Broker² Award acknowledges the invaluable contribution made by a brokerage team.

Winners will be announced at the Awards ceremony, Sept. 22 at the Metropolitan Ballroom & Clubroom »
