Lindsey Dulle joins SVN Phoenix retail team

Rommie Mojahed has been recognized in the Valley for his notable retail development transaction.  As one of the directors for the SVN Phoenix retail division, he has grown his retail team over the years and brings on Lindsey Dulle to oversee specific marketing and project management for the team’s extensive listing activity.  She is also fully licensed with the State of Arizona so she is the newest Associate Advisor on Mojahed’s retail team.

Dulle comes with a solid background and knowledge of commercial real estate. Mojahed said, “We are excited for Lindsey to join our team in Phoenix.  Lindsey was part of a powerhouse retail team in Newport, California and has brought that momentum to our team.” Dulle spent three years with another office in Orange County, California.  At SVN Renaissance Commercial, Lindsey worked directly with the sale and leasing teams to increase productivity, improve efficiencies, and provide support to the various teams of Advisors.

She was originally hired into the assistant marketing role at Desert Commercial Advisors in Phoenix to support the retail leasing and sales team for Rommie Mojahed. However, three months ago yesterday she officially hung her commercial real estate license with SVN.  Moving forward, Dulle will not only continue to play an instrumental role in offering knowledgeable marketing & design support to three other advisors, she will also be an active associate advisor on future listings.
