Today’s spotlight: Lisa Bentley


McCarthy Nordburg

Background: Bentley has 30 years’ experience in commercial real estate and has been with McCarthy Nordburg for 26 years. She is instrumental in helping to sustain the firm’s clientele with contributions in client development, contract negotiations, strategic marketing and collateral development. 

Professional advice: “Do not focus on being a woman in the industry. Invest your time in working hard, building relationships and play the long game, maintain work/life balance and grow your knowledge and experience.”

Lesson learned: “In the last year, I am reminded how invaluable it is to remain flexible, nimble, resilient and vigilant about staying focused.”

Surprising fact: “I love the legal aspect of crime and had my own investment account since I was 18. I enjoy researching investments in the stock market.”
