My name is Connor Weas, and I am from Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin. I played basketball in college at both UW-Milwaukee and Lawrence University, before graduating in 2017. After college, I started my career in Commercial Real Estate as a Broker Trainee/Analyst at Founders 3. At the beginning of 2021, I started working alongside my father at Weas Development as an Associate. My roles within the company include Development Planning, Property Management, Business Development, and Brokerage.
I currently live on the East Side of Milwaukee and enjoy reading, music, yoga, the Milwaukee Bucks, the Green Bay Packers.
