ANGIE SUMNER – Broker, President, Sumner Commercial Real Estate
When I decided to change careers from a business owner in the reprographics field and as an architectural designer of 22 years, I wanted something that was going to challenge me. Imagining a new career in commercial real estate in 2008, at the bottom of the worst recession in U.S. history, sounded a little crazy, but I did it on purpose. I knew it would take time to learn a whole new set of skills.
In 2016, I purchased the brokerage that I was working for and opened Sumner Commercial Real Estate, Inc. In just over a year, I have expanded to a second location, added two new brokers and implemented a new state-of-the-art property management software to better serve our property management clients.
To continue the challenge, I am in the process of obtaining the highest level of designation for a commercial real estate broker and I am running for the newly created commercial director position at the Prescott Area Association of Realtors. I am the currently the vice president of the Prescott Area Commercial Group (PACG), and I am learning the importance of melding the local commercial and residential interests to best benefit our fast-growing community.
I can say that the learning process of commercial real estate has been an enjoyable quest, but the most rewarding part of my job is assisting my clients in selling, buying or leasing their commercial property and helping them to achieve their business and financial dreams!
