Commercial real estate leasing and sales brokers scored significant deal successes during 2023, a year of macroeconomic challenges. Connect CRE’s annual Top Broker Awards spotlights the year’s leading dealmakers – 110  brokers or teams from across the U.S.

Ten winners were selected from the Phoenix/Southwest region, including Western Real Estate Advisors Partner Neil Board. Congratulations Neil!
