Background & ExperienceCathy Jones has 30+ years experience in finance and commercial real estate, with an emphasis in investment sales, financial oversight of real estate and investment holdings, receivership services, property management, leasing, real estate market analysis, contract negotiations, financing, corporate cash management, and business development.
In 2003, Ms. Jones moved into the field of commercial real estate brokerage with a focus on investment sales. Within 2 years Ms. Jones and her Investment Services Group achieved top performing year-end awards. Since that time Ms. Jones and her team have closed in excess of $1.2 billion in commercial sales transactions. Ms. Jones formed her own commercial real estate firm, Sun Commercial Real Estate, Inc., in 2006.
