Alum Alissa Adler Dialogs with the Real Estate Club

Posted By Maria-Elena Svigos, Tuesday, March 12, 2019




The Real Estate Club welcomed Alissa Adler (BS, 1988; MS, 1989) to their March 8, 2019 meeting. Mrs. Adler, Managing Principal at Podolsky Circle, boasts more that 29 years in the real estate industry. With experience in asset management, acquisition, advisory, brokerage and real estate investment, she has truly seen all walks of the real estate trade. Alissa began her presentation with some career highlights which include over $1.2 billion in transactions, institutional and entrepreneurial investments, owning and brokering real estate properties, working all around the nation on both the operational and transactional side of a deal, and earning both an undergraduate and graduate real estate degrees.


Podolsky Circle CORFAC International is a wide-range real estate advisory that specializes in office, industrial and retail markets offering brokerage, property and asset management and advisory for debt and equity placement. Alissa serves as Managing Principal at the firm and specializes in investment sales, debt and equity placement, due diligence and asset management. Prior to its merge to form Podolsky Circle, Alissa established Circle Realty Advisors LLC and serves as President. She was also Vice President of Acquisition & Disposition for Duke Realty and Equity Office Properties Trust.


With such incredible experience in the industry, Mrs. Adler offered great words of advice for the Real Estate Club’s undergraduate and MBA students. She encouraged students to “Know Your Type” when it comes to choosing a career within the industry – whether they are math-oriented, outgoing person, or tolerable of long hours and long-term stability, there are positions for all of their preferences and skills. She discussed how they could start personally investing in real estate and where to start their careers (and where it could lead!)


To conclude, Alissa shared tips for interviewing. She told students to be thorough with their resumes, work on communications skills, be conscientious with response time and thank you’s and to monitor their social media presence. She shared her five keys to standing out and succeeding in the industry: join organizations, start a personal database, build a network, take notes, and work hard.


Many thanks to Alissa Adler for her encouraging words to students last week. The Club’s Innovator Award meeting will be Thursday, March 28th.
