What is NextGen?
CARW Next Generation is an initiative focused on helping member firms recruit and retain commercial real estate professionals through giving access to up and coming real estate professionals to information and experts. The 9-month program will provide participants with high-level information and practical examples from commercial real estate projects, and enhance their commercial real estate networks. This experience will improve individuals and the industry – for now and in the future.

How do I participate?
CARW Next Generation involves two components: the first consists of programming that is exclusive to CARW Members selected through an application process.  The selection committee will choose 10-15 applicants to move through the program.  The second component of the program involves social events and happy hours – 2-3 annually, open to all members of the commercial real estate community.

This program gives those with less than five years of experience access and exposure to various disciplines while fostering strong relationships within the real estate community.

Who is eligible?
CARW Next Generation is only open to CARW members with under 5 years of commercial real estate experience.

How do I apply?
CARW Next Generation candidates are determined through an application process.  10-15 individuals will be selected.  The application requires a firm leader’s endorsement and a 9-month commitment to the program.

NOTE: This time commitment is essential in order to attend our monthly meetings that will take place at 250 E. Wisconsin Ave. in the CARW 1st floor training room from  4 – 5:30 p.m. on the second Wednesday of each month, January through September, 2018.

“I thoroughly enjoyed my experience in the 2017 CARW NextGen program for a number of reasons but my main takeaway was the exposure the program gave us to the industries leaders in the various fields of real estate. As a broker, we deal with attorneys, brokers, developers, contractors, etc. in each transaction we complete and being able to hear from a veteran of each field throughout the program was invaluable.”

– Matt Fahey, NextGen Class of 2017

“Being newer to commercial real estate the NexGen class was invaluable. To learn from some of the most seasoned and successful people in our industry was an experience I would recommend to any anyone who is newer to the business!”
– Matt Medvecz, NextGen Class of 2017

“The CARW NextGen program was an invaluable source of both learning and networking opportunities. The panelists were informative, open, and cooperative. The relationships created with my NextGen peers will surely grow stronger as we all progress through our careers in commercial real estate.”
– Eric Mouton, NextGen Class of 2017

“The CARW NextGen program has provided me with the opportunity to form meaningful relationships with important influencers in our local and regional commercial real estate community, as well as my peers in the industry. I feel that I have more resources now than ever before – if I don’t know the answer to something, I know where to find it across a range of disciplines. I am better able to serve my clients because of the CARW NextGen program.”
– Alyssa Geisler, NextGen Class of 2017
