The dealmakers and biggest projects in commercial real estate for 2017 were honored by the Frederick County Office of Economic Development this evening at Springfield Manor. The Frederick Real Estate Dealmakers (FRED) Awards honored the most successful commercial real estate transactions and the projects of 2017 – and the people who made them happen.
“These awards are about recognizing the hard work and risks that our brokers and developers take to deliver quality commercial spaces that allow us to create jobs, and for recognizing the partnerships that need to happen for us to be able to keep growing business in Frederick County,” said Director of the Frederick County Office of Economic Development Helen Propheter.
Any lease, sale or financing deal signed during 2017 or any new construction or renovation delivered in 2017 was eligible for an award. The nominations crossed all commercial real estate disciplines from retail and industrial to office. In selecting award winners, the impacts on Frederick County’s economy were considered as well as complexity and creativity of the projects. In addition, special recognition was given to a commercial real estate professional who stood out in 2017 as Broker of the Year and a Lifetime Achievement Award winner was honored for a long history of commercial real estate successes.
