Boston, Massachusetts– September 29, 2023 – Senior Advisor Marilyn Santiago of SVN® | Parsons Commercial Group | Boston is featured in 2023 Women in CRE Spotlight. 

What recent project, transaction, or accomplishment are you most proud of? I find pride in every transaction, regardless of its scope, striving to infuse each client’s interaction with passion to help them reach their objectives. What I’m most proud of is when a client returns and acknowledges that my efforts played a crucial role in realizing their goals. These moments of client satisfaction and success define my sense of accomplishment in my work. When confronted with a challenging transaction, I adopt the attitude that no matter how many obstacles arise, I persevere and never give up, always seeking creative solutions to make it work.”

Who inspires you most? What qualities do they possess that inspire you? My principal, manager and mentors are my primary sources of inspiration. Their unwavering support, guidance, and leadership qualities inspire me to excel. Additionally, the collective accomplishments of our team at SVN Parsons Commercial Group, marked by dedication and teamwork, continue to motivate me in my endeavors.

What are the most important factors women in your industry should consider when choosing a firm to build their career with?
