Today’s spotlight: Lindsey Carlson

Title: Senior vice president, Arizona, Colliers International

Carlson is a senior vice president with Colliers International specializing in tenant and landlord representation for the leasing and sale of office properties. She is a skilled negotiator focused on providing exceptional service and strategic solutions that align with her client’s objectives.

Source of pride:Helping my client, an emerging company,  locate and negotiate a unique real estate solution which resulted in the re purposing of former car dealership.  Through creativity and problem solving we were able to overcome many challenges and the result is a thriving campus where they have experienced great success. Working strategically to come up with unique solutions that allow my clients to thrive brings me the most satisfaction.”

The personality trait that helped you succeed:Tenacity. It has helped me to persevere no matter the circumstances and has given me the drive to accomplish the goals of my clients and my own personal aspirations.”

The personality trait that got you into trouble:Impatience.  I operate at a fast pace and can get very frustrated when things aren’t happening at that same rate. That frustration can get me in trouble with people or tasks that require a slower pace.  Having kids has helped me to embrace the process and enjoy the journey more.”

Best childhood memory:Visiting Arizona with my family for spring break. We would go to spring training games, spend endless hours in the pool, ride in my grandpa’s convertible and enjoy sarsaparillas at Pinnacle Peak Patio.  This eventually led me to attend ASU and haven’t wanted to leave since.”
