The Real Estate Development Awards (RED) represent the largest commercial real estate event of the year. Honored are the biggest, best and most notable commercial real estate projects and deals. Among those recognized are developers, contractors, architects and brokers.


The Real Estate and Development (RED) Awards — which are considered the Academy Awards of Arizona’s commercial real estate industry — honored last year’s top brokers, architects, contractors, developers and projects Wednesday night at Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort.

“I grew up in New York and long before he was president, I actually got to meet Donald Trump and I asked him the key to success in commercial real estate,” joked AZ Big Media Editor in Chief Michael Gossie. “Trump said, ‘Do you want to know how to make $100 million in commercial rate estate? … Start with $400 million.’”
