SIOR’s energy and voice has never been louder in the industry and is amplifying the exposure of everyone involved with SIOR. Its impressive. " - Duke Long, EIR, Second Century Ventures & NAR REACH

"When I became heavily involved [with SIOR] at the local and global level, I found that it had quality people who had demonstrated their success and adhere to an ethic and a level of professional standard that is uncompromising. That's a benefit that you can't replicate, and I was very attracted to that." - Joe Almeida, SIOR, Managing Director of Avison Young & SIOR Past President

"I’ve been a big fan and supporter of SIOR ever since I joined many years ago. The philosophy of teamwork to which SIOR adheres is particularly inviting and is a benefit to all SIORs.  It truly sets us apart from and ahead of the competition." - Pete Larson, SIOR Retired, Executive Vice President at Transwestern

 "I highly value the SIOR designation.  As a matter of fact, SIOR's online Membership Directory is a valuable tool I use when selecting a provider of commercial real estate services.  Having an SIOR on my team gives me great confidence that I shall be represented by a person whose expertise and ethics have been certified.

A significant plus is that SIOR covers so many markets and countries.  So virtually any place I have an assignment, I can find an SIOR to advise me in my efforts." - Kevin Dollhopf, Hanesbrands, Inc.

"We’re really excited about the prospect of achieving full membership. We’ve already enjoyed the benefits of being Candidate Members thus far, but look forward to full SIOR designation.  One of our bigger deals came out of attending the LA Conference over two years ago.  Had we not attended this event (as Member Associate’s) we would not have procured this transaction and the development deals that will follow. " - Mark Nelson, SIOR (Former Member Associate), NelsonHill

“If I were to point to one activity that contributed to my success in business it would be the membership and friendships in SIOR. This Legacy Circle is a meaningful recognition of a great experience.” H. Merrill Plaisted III, SIOR Retired, Cushman & Wakefield | Thalhimer
