Meet Sara Anderson

What is your role at Avison Young?

Senior Project Manager How did you get into commercial real estate?

I started in the interior architecture business. I am a certified commercial interior designer (NCIDQ). I worked with clients, brokers, and developers to find the most appropriate building/space options for more than half of my career. I managed design studios delivering built space to national and international clients. Then, I transitioned to Economic Development for a few years in Lehigh Valley, PA as Vice President of Marketing of the newly formed LVEDC. I established my own business focused on workplace strategy and taught Interior Design at Villa Maria College in Buffalo, NY. I moved back to the Philadelphia area 9 years ago working in Project Management for end users. I joined AY in November 2015. What is the best advice you've ever received?

Hard to say but I really like this quote: "Know that it's less important to have more friends and more important to have real ones. Surround yourself with people who make you better and cherish every moment of your time together."
