WASHINGTON, DC - April 28, 2022 - JLL announces today that Executive Managing Directors Amy Bowser and Pete Briskman received the Commercial Real Estate Brokerage Association’s (CREBA) top leasing agent award nods for both DC and Maryland, respectively, at a ceremony held April 26. The award recognizes sustained excellence in brokerage and deal volume over the last twelve months.

In DC, Amy Bowser and her team have transacted a number of sizable office leases during 2021, including notable transactions at the District’s newest neighborhood, The Wharf.

“It’s no surprise that the past two years have brought unique challenges and opportunities for office space,” noted Bowser. “But quality office space that delivers an amenity-rich, wellness-oriented and commute-worthy environment has performed well and will continue to attract the businesses focused on collaboration and growth. Our agency leasing team has seen that firsthand this past year and it’s only been increasing.”

Heading up JLL Mid-Atlantic’s Life Sciences Practice Group, Briskman has advised some of the region’s top Biohealth companies, whose mission is to cure world disease, lead new therapies and ultimately improve the future for all of those around them.

“Suburban Maryland has seen quite the uptick in the past two years, there is no question,” remarked Briskman. “And it is an incredible honor to be recognized for my achievements in this space. Many recipients of this honor are tremendous mentors and peers who I have the utmost respect for and to be in their company and recognized in this way means so much.”

“We are very proud to have two of our standout brokers recognized by CREBA,” stated Chris Molivadas, Mid-Atlantic Market Director, JLL. “2021 was a challenging year for our industry, but Amy and Pete are representative of the determination and focus our team has embraced, and demonstrated real results for our clients.”
