Brad Bonkowski, CCIM, and Andie Wilson, CCIM, (left) owners and brokers of NAI Alliance in Carson City, Nev., have worked together to be a successful team and have served as mentors to help mold leaders in the commercial real estate industry. Melissa Molyneaux, CCIM, (right) of Colliers International in Reno, Nev., understands firsthand the importance of being supported by a mentor in the industry.

After meeting and working together through Commercial Real Estate Women’s Network, Bonkowski and Wilson helped persuade Molyneaux to pursue her CCIM designation. “I reached out to Melissa very early on and encouraged her to step up and be in the spotlight more,” Wilson says. “It’s easy for a woman to get comfortable at a desk in a back room and not really push for the top.”

Molyneaux followed through on the advice and obtained her designation in 2009. “One of the reasons I got a CCIM designation was because I am a woman in the industry,” she says. “I think because I started so early, at the age of 22, I was not taken very seriously. People assumed I was someone’s assistant. I wanted to become an expert, so I worked hard to get my CCIM designation.”

Recently Molyneaux represented Isbell Partners LLC in the $4.25 million sale of the 38,456-sf office property located at 639 Isbell Road in Reno to an undisclosed trust represented by Bonkowski and Wilson. Although it may not have been the CCIM designation that opened the door for this deal, their relationship was the foundation for the three brokers to successfully complete this transaction.

“We really make a point of trying to mentor individuals to continue their education and be involved, and not just get their deals done and go home,” Bonkowski says. “We encourage those new to the profession to go make a difference, put your face out there and be a leader — because you have to pull up the next leaders behind you.”
