Today’s spotlight: Adrienne Bryant
Bryant Commercial Real Estate
Bryant has been in the real estate industry for over 20 years. She pivoted to commercial real estate when she relocated to Arizona and decided to focus on assisting business owners through representing them exclusively through the cycle of site selection, negotiations, construction phase and being an exclusive advocate for her clients.
Lesson learned in 2020: “The monumental challenges and uncertainties that business owners faced during the pandemic was overwhelming and stressful. The shutdown challenged so many businesses including our own. The biggest take away for me was to remind myself how little of control I truly have. Our conversations have always been about strategic planning, but the pandemic reminded me of the compassion and empathy that was most needed during these unchartered times.”
Source of pride: “The accomplishment that brings the most pride is that we are an African-American, women-owned CRE firm. My daughter, Jonvieve, is part of our family legacy and future of our company. We have represented national franchise brands, global companies, and nonprofit organizations.”
Surprising fact: “My first real estate transaction was the sale of a mixed-use building in Berkeley for the National Association of Colored Women. I was a residential real estate agent at the time, and I never imagined my first transaction would be the sale of a commercial real estate property. I was destined for commercial real estate!”
