The Principal position is a new role within our fast growing PropTech firm. The Principal will partner with MetaProp partners to execute existing and future client relationships and will have a growing role in strategy, team leadership, and business development.

The Principal will work closely with real estate clients--typically national or multinational category leaders in their respective real estate categories--to understand their innovation issues, create strategies for change, win buy-in for recommendations, and collaborate with fellow MetaProp team members to transform client potential into performance.

Over time, the Principal will build and manage diverse teams of consulting talent by guiding their efforts, directing their talents, and expanding their knowledge and skills to deliver strategic and sustainable solutions for our MetaProp Advisors clients.
