What information/data will I need to apply?

The complete nomination form, including all questions and word limits, is available for download here. Please note that this is for preparation purposes only. Final entries must be submitted online, via the Nominate Now webpage.

Who may apply?

This series is open to any executive level professional (from management to C-suite) who leads and has a significant decision-making role within a commercial real estate company or a commercial real estate division of a larger company.

You may nominate two professionals as a team, if the company’s leadership is split between executives.


Can I nominate myself?

Yes. We accept self-nominations, as well as third-party submissions.

I was selected as a Best Boss last year. Can I apply again this year?

To avoid redundancy, we try to vary the professionals that we profile from year to year. However, you may still submit a nomination and include updated details and testimonies that do not mirror the previous year’s submission.

How and when will winners be notified?

Editorial staff will send email notifications to the chosen professionals and their submitters by mid-December. Due to the high volume of nominations that we receive, only those selected will be notified.

When will the issue come out?

GlobeSt. Real Estate Forum will profile CRE’s Best Bosses in the March/April 2021 issue, which will be distributed in early April. Selected professionals will additionally gain recognition on GlobeSt.com.

Is there a fee to apply?

No. Submission to this, as well as all of our editorial content, is free.

How do I increase my chances of being selected?

Be as descriptive, yet concise as possible. Sounds redundant, but it’s simple. Provide details on why you think your entry should be chosen as an Influencer, but leave out the fluff, like marketing content and self-congratulatory comments. Don’t hide the items of importance within pages of trivialities. Support your entry and statements with backup information—we love facts and figures.
