In a year the world turned upside down, the Summit Awards Committee is excited to announce this year’s winners for achievement and excellence in Northern Nevada commercial real estate.

This year’s virtual presentation of the Summit Awards showcased the best our industry has to offer in construction, development, brokerage and other notable industry achievements.

Though we weren’t able to plan for an in-person event this year, our committee, along with CCIM, NAIOP, Nevada Builders Alliance (NBA) and CREW, is dedicated to hosting our attendees next year in the biggest and best Summit Awards yet.

For the past two decades, the Summit Awards has been hosted by these four leading organizations in commercial real estate and is Northern Nevada’s premier merit awards event. This year, we celebrated the projects and people who climbed their way to the top in 2020.

Our Construction Awards include categories for design professional, subcontractor and general contractor of the year. We honored these winners based on their hard work and dedication to the industry and their goodwill within the community.

Broker Awards are presented to the top performing specialists in industrial, office, retail, investment, land and generalist categories, as well as a rising star award. The largest single lease, largest sale transaction and total transactions by a single commercial real estate office are recognized with top honors going to the Broker of the Year.

Developers and their 2020 projects receive high honors in several categories including industrial, medical office, multifamily, office, retail and redevelopment/substantial tenant improvement.

Last year presented many challenges for commercial real estate, and for that alone, the developers awarded this year — and all who submitted for each category — deserve high praise for their fortitude.

Our last Specialty Awards categories salute the individual accomplishments of property manager and NAIOP Developing Leader of the year, as well as the Extra Mile Award.

The individual who has most actively supported the advancement of women in the highly competitive field of commercial real estate is awarded the Katie Morrison CREW Ambassador of the year. This Ambassador exemplifies fairness and qualities of helping others both within commercial real estate and in the community.

The Summit Awards Committee would like to thank the sponsors for this virtual event and congratulates the 2020 winners! We appreciate the continued support of the Nevada Builders Alliance, CREW, NAIOP and CCIM’s members. They have become more important than ever in a continually uncertain economic and regulatory environment.
