Investment Matters: Net Lease and Technology Innovator
The CEO & co-founder of B+E on 1031 exchange trends, catching the brokerage bug, what family offices are looking for and more.
Camille Renshaw has closed upward of $30 billion in deals, but she got her start in commercial real estate after a previous life as a technology entrepreneur. She became an owner when she sold a successful startup and invested some of the proceeds in commercial real estate assets. At first her goal was to become a better owner, but Renshaw soon caught the bug for the business itself.
She went on to serve in senior positions at several top brokerage firms before she co-founded B+E in 2017. She’s made major contributions to net lease investment and 1031 exchanges, and of equal note, she’s an innovator in commercial real estate technology. Renshaw brought her technology to CRE services at a time when many in the industry were still skeptical of technology’s importance.
In 2020, her accomplishments earned her recognition by her fellow real estate executives as both CPE’s Innovator of the Year and Net Lease Executive of the Year. In this episode of Investment Matters, you’ll hear her thoughts on 1031 exchange trends, what’s ahead for the debt markets, the changing role of technology and much more.
