VENICE, Calif., Feb. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- CREXi, the online real estate marketplace, has announced the hire of Wendy Blue as Regional Director of Business Development to support the firm's continued expansion into the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic.
"Wendy will be a key addition to our growing Business Development team. Wendy grew up in the industry and comes to us from an amazing firm where she excelled. Wendy will help grow our New York office with a focus on the Mid-Atlantic, where she grew up and has spent much of her career," noted Mike DeGiorgio founder and CEO of CREXi. "After being introduced to Wendy, we spent a few months speaking with her and concluded that her vision mirrored ours. We're lucky to welcome her to the team and are excited to watch her growth."
Wendy will be joining CREXi's New York office where she will join her long-time industry peer, Christina Host who was hired in October. Blue joins CREXi from JLL where she held several consulting positions in the commercial real estate services industry. In Blue's most recent role with JLL, she was responsible for providing strategic occupancy planning, as well as real estate advisory and transaction management services to a Fortune 100 financial services corporation. Prior to that role, Blue specialized in tenant representation in the D.C. Metropolitan market as well as federal leasing, where she managed a portfolio of government leases and provided real estate brokerage and financial advisory services to the General Services Administration. Wendy earned a bachelor's degree in economics from Vanderbilt University and will report to Eli Randel, Head of Business Development based in the firm's Miami office.
In addition to the new hire, CREXi has reached a new milestone by achieving active inventory of more than 10,000 commercial properties for sale in the marketplace representing approximately $60B in value. Active inventory excludes thousands of properties which have sold or are under contract. "We're very proud of how quickly and efficiently we've scaled our business," added DeGiorgio. "We launched our platform with four properties in Texas only 15 months ago. We are now active in every state and are growing our third office. We recognize we have a long way to go, but it's rewarding to enjoy the milestone and reflect on what we've built."
