LandQwest Commercial Orlando
Julia Sosa has lost count of the retail lease
deals she has completed in her 30-year
career, but it is safe to say it is in the millions. This year, Sosa and her team have
nearly completed the lease up of Sunset
Walk, a 200,000-square-foot shopping center at Margaritaville Resort. As a principal
at LandQwest Commercial Orlando, she
has become a leader in her field, hosting
events like Retail Live! in Orlando and leading business development of the firm’s office.
JESSICA THURMAN DOYLE
Within a year of joining Colliers
International’s Atlanta office, Jessica
Thurman Doyle was promoted to market
leader of the landlord services team, where
she represents more than 3 million square
feet of office space. The position makes her
one of the few market leaders in the country. As SVP and principal at the firm, she has
been instrumental in driving occupancy for
clients and growing the firm’s agency business.
