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?

The form is open to any individual, under the age of 40, who operates in commercial real estate and related fields, such as law, research, design and consulting.
 

Can I nominate myself?

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

I was selected for Fifty Under 40 last year. Can I apply again this year?

To avoid redundancy, we try to vary the professionals that we profile from year to year. That being said, individuals selected within recent years for Fifty Under 40 may submit a nomination and include updated details, accomplishments and testimonies that do not mirror previous submissions. View 2019’s Fifty Under 40 list, here.

How and when will winners be notified?

Editorial staff will send email notifications to the chosen individuals and submitters by August. Due to the high volume of nominations that we receive, only those selected will be notified.
 

When will the issue come out?

Chosen Fifty Under 40 professionals will be profiled in the October 2020 Career issue of Real Estate Forum. Selected individuals will additionally gain recognition on GlobeSt.com.
 

Is there a fee to apply?

No. Submission to this, and 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. We don’t mind reading long entries, but don’t hide the items of importance within pages of trivialities. Support your entry and statements with backup information—we love facts and figures—or files, such as media coverage.
 

What if I still have questions regarding my nomination?
