“We shape our buildings: thereafter, they shape us.”
Although spoken years ago by Winston Churchill, this quote still resonates strongly with CommunityVentures|RE.
“That quote captures the true stewardship and responsibility of today’s real estate professional,” said Michael Schnabel, Managing Partner|Founder. “CommunityVentures|RE intends to embrace the BCorp philosophy, empowering our clients and the communities we work.”
CommunityVentures|RE, LLC., is a pending BCorp Commercial Real Estate Advisory firm that embraces a vision of the power of business to do good. CommunityVentures|RE is launching with its core team of: Michael Schnabel – Managing Partner | Founder; Ashley Young – Partner | Senior Vice President Market Development and Christopher Mann – Partner | Industrial Properties Group.
Schnabel explains choosing Reno was simple – the proximity to Lake Tahoe and California were natural selling points, but more importantly, as a pending BCorp, CommunityVentures|RE feels they can make a meaningful, positive impact in the market and community.
“In addition, Reno also offers us a progressive mid-sized city to test, build and launch our brand into other similar markets nationwide,” he said. “Also, our connectivity in the San Francisco Bay Area combined with our network in northern Nevada makes us uniquely qualified to drive positive change in the community with our clients.”
BCorps are for-profit companies certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. BCorps are a new type of company that uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. The BCorp vision is simple yet ambitious: people using business as a force for good.
“The real estate markets are becoming more sophisticated every day and this changing environment requires market-leading advice and expertise,” said Ashley Young – Partner | Senior Vice President Market Development.
CommunityVentures|RE has identified a corporate headquarters location downtown and intends to rapidly build its team of world-class real estate advisors. In addition to building its Real Estate Advisory team in Reno, CommunityVentures|RE intends to extend its advisory platform to new markets beginning in 2019.
