Today’s spotlight: Laurel Lewis

Title: Senior vice president in office properties, NAI Horizon

Background: Lewis’ focus is landlord and tenant representation. She is actively involved with Valley Partnership and is a volunteer with Phoenix Youth at Risk.

Best decision: “The smartest decision I made was to get out of a support role in real estate and take the plunge into a commission-based, full-time sales agent position. Since I made that move 27 years ago, I have successfully completed transactions for my clients totaling more than $170 million.”

Surprising fact: “I was a tomboy until the age of 12. I could beat all the boys in arm wrestling and foot races.”
