Alexandra Loye, executive managing director, Cushman & Wakefield

BACKGROUND: Alexandra Loye is an executive managing director with Cushman & Wakefield, serving as a key member of two teams in the Capital Markets and Life Science sectors. With upwards of 12 years of brokerage experience, Loye is a respected commercial real estate broker and authority with a distinguished skillset specializing in healthcare and life sciences. She has completed more than 500 sales and lease transactions valued at $675 million during her successful career.  

SOURCE OF PRIDE: “I think making my most recent transition which was to become a capital markets broker at Cushman & Wakefield. The capital markets are extremely sophisticated and challenging and I’m amongst a group of professionals that are really top of their game. To be able to join such an esteemed team and partners has been my honor.”

SURPRISING FACT: “Most people don’t know I’m actually a dual citizen. I was born in Mexico and spent most of my life growing up in the United States. But it’s a benefit from a real estate standpoint having the dual citizenship and I speak Spanish as well. I love to travel and I’m a dual citizen of both Mexico and United States.”

PROFESSIONAL QUALITY:The quality that I possess that helped me become one of the most influential women of 2022 has to be fortitude. And I say that because there’s just not a lot of women in our industry, and to continue on the path to be a commercial real estate broker, there were a lot of obstacles or people saying that I couldn’t do it, or I shouldn’t do it. There was also a lot of people cheering me on. You really have to have the ability to stick to it, and overcome any challenge that might be thrown at your way.”
