Name: Adam Finkel

Q: What do you enjoy the most about commercial real estate?
A: What I enjoy most is the impact commercial real estate has and the ability to be a part of that impact on the community. There are few areas of business, commerce, etc. that impact our lives on a daily basis more than commercial real estate and most people don’t even think about it or realize it. It is vital to the health and wealth of a community and the people who live in it.
Q: What is the best piece of advice you have received?
A: You won’t be successful if you try to be someone else. Being genuine and true to who you are and what works best for you will get you where you want to go.
Q: What is your favorite quote?
A: The more I work and practice, the luckier I seem to get. – Gary Player
Q: Where did you grow up?
A: I moved to Wisconsin when I was only a few years old because my mom’s family has had roots in the Milwaukee area for generations and she wanted the family to be closer together. I grew up in Mequon and stayed close to home after high school, attending UW-Madison for undergrad and Marquette University Law School.
Q: What was cool when you were growing up but isn’t cool now?
A: Starter Jackets
Q: What’s your favorite place to travel to?
A: I love traveling West. Some of my favorite places to visit are Denver, Phoenix, Seattle, and Boise.
Q: What do you hope to get out of your membership with CARW?
A: The first is to learn from all of the other members. There is such a wealth of knowledge and experience and I look forward to growing through the membership. And second, I certainly hope to foster great relationships with others in our real estate community who I haven’t met or who I know but would like to get to know better. Plus I’m always looking for a good golf game if anyone needs a 4th!
