Mosaic Real Estate Investors
Mosaic Real Estate Investors managing partner Vicky Schiff (pictured above with her son) had every intention of becoming a doctor while in college, but an internship with a commercial real estate brokerage firm right after graduation changed her mind. It also helped that her father was a hotel and industrial developer in Las Vegas. One of the things she finds most rewarding about her job is "coming up with an idea by paying attention to industry movements and creating a business around it, then bringing people together to execute the business plan." The challenges she finds in the industry are that big firms are continuing to get bigger and "dominate certain parts of the market." Technology also is changing aspects of leasing space, finding debt and raising capital and is helping operating companies run more efficiently, according to Vicky. She suggests women in the industry find mentors, take calculated risks and write handwritten thank you notes to make themselves stand out. When she's not in the office, she enjoys spending time with her family, skiing and ocean swimming and bringing people together.
