Inspiration comes in many forms for AZRE magazine’s Most Influential Women in Commercial Real Estate for 2022.

“I’m inspired by women in the construction industry,” says Morgan Betancourt, project director for Okland Construction. “In a historically male-dominated industry, women have gone — and continue to go — above and beyond to prove that we belong. The women I’ve met and worked with are passionate, detail oriented and driven to provide greater representation in the field.”

For others, inspiration hits very close to home.

“My paternal grandmother was a pastor’s wife who lost her husband to the influenza epidemic at the beginning of the Great Depression,” says Bev Jensen, regional operations manager for Colliers. “Having lost their church-provided housing, she moved her two children — ages five months and eight years — to a small farm in the country and drove the long commute to the city every day to work to support them. As a working single mom during the Depression, she epitomized strength, determination and an amazingly positive attitude. She taught me to always strive to do my best.”

Jensen and Betancourt — along with the rest of the Most Influential Women in Arizona Business and the Most Influential Women in Commercial Real Estate for 2022 — will be featured in the July issues of Az Business and AZRE magazines. They will also be honored at a recognition dinner Thursday, August 25, 2022, at Chateau Luxe in Phoenix. Tickets are on sale now. Tables and sponsorship packages are available.
