14. Fuhrman Joins Investec Realty Services
- Wednesday, June 09, 2010
Eric Fuhrman has joined Investec Realty Services. Fuhrman is a Certified Commercial Investment Member and a six-year veteran in commercial sales and leasing.
Hometown: Born in Des Plaines, Ill., a suburb of Chicago
Work Experience: One of my favorite work experiences was training police divers in underwater search and recovery with the National Academy of Police Diving. Later I worked as an estimator/project manager for a commercial construction firm and most recently transferred to Investec Realty Services after five-plus years with Crye-Leike Commercial.
Family: My wife, Joanna, is a local and we have five children – Gabe, 11; Audrey, 10; Sam, 8; Ellie, 4; and Molly, three weeks.
Favorite quote: “A man can succeed at almost anything for which he has unlimited enthusiasm,” Charles M. Schwab.
Activities you enjoy outside of work? I love running with the family. We try to hit most of the 5Ks around town. As of one week ago, I am the director of the SYS Golden Saints Track & Field Team. Go Saints!
Why did you pursue a career in real estate? I believe that God never wastes life experiences on us. This field seemed like a blend of many of my life experiences.
What do you consider your greatest professional accomplishments? Earning my designation as a Certified Commercial Investment Member was a proud moment although I feel that it is an equally great accomplishment anytime I am able to meet a need for one of my clients through a commercial real estate transaction.
What do you most enjoy about your work? I really like the team concept promoted at Investec. I couldn’t be happier to work alongside Jon Albright and tackle some of the amazing projects we have coming down the pipeline.
