Aside from your classmates, what was the key part of Kenan-Flagler’s MBA curriculum or programming that led you to choose this business school and why was it so important to you?

UNC Kenan-Flagler’s Leonard W. Wood Center for Real Estate Studies was the beneficial factor when it came to deciding which program I should attend. After being invited to the 2023 real estate conference at the Dean E. Smith Center and meeting so many prominent industry professionals, I was convinenced that UNC Kenan-Flagler was the program for me. Prior to this experience, I read about UNC’s real estate program. After attending the conference, I understood why UNC is a top real estate powerhouse.

What has been your first impression of the Kenan-Flagler MBA students and alumni you’ve met so far?

I remember being invited to UNC Kenan-Flagler’s Leadership Weekend, and that was my first time interacting with the MBA students. I felt at ease when I was around them although I was pursing admittance into their institution. The students and alumni I chatted with were eager to assist me in any way possible. It was that feeling of community that separated UNC Kenan-Flagler from other schools and made me feel welcomed and at home.

What course, club or activity excites you the most at Kenan-Flagler?

I am excited to join the golf club. I have a terrible slice, so hopefully my classmates can help me hit the ball straight. As far as courses are concerned, I am interested in the marketing although I am a real estate concentrator. We are always promoting something whether it is apartments, oil and gas, sustainable environments, etc. Learning how to market myself and the services/products about which I am passionate will be very beneficial.

Describe your biggest accomplishment in your career so far:

CityInterests Development Partners gave me the opportunity to be the lead on a mixed-use real estate development project that consisted of 230 units and 14,000 square feet of retail space. I’ve spent countless hours reviewing drawings, studying agreements, engaging with the local officials, and creating relationships with the community that eventually the upper management allowed me to lead. This was the pinnacle of my career. Having the confidence of partners, who have personal interests in the project, to manage their investment is the Stanley Cup for a young real estate professional.

What do you hope to do after graduation?

Real estate is my form of art. I don’t see it as work yet more so an extension of who I am. After graduation, I’d like to develop transcending projects that disrupt the status quo of what the global community views as commercial real estate in both multifamily and commercial.

What advice would you give to help potential applicants gain admission into Kenan-Flagler’s MBA program?  

Be yourself. We are transitioning into a period where AI has the capacity to assist with resumes, cover letters and essays, so it is becoming harder to standout on paper. However, if you are granted an opportunity to interview with the UNC Kenan-Flagler program, use this as you chance to standout amongst your peers. And, please be personable. Being human goes a long way.
