What Do You Like Most About Commercial Real Estate?

I just started a new Twitter poll, What do you like most about commercial real estate. I think it has been a couple of months since I conducted a Twitter poll. It has been a tough summer for personal reasons, but I'm getting back into the swing of things. Business is picking up, and there's a lot of interesting opportunities on the horizon.  It's time to start thinking about what we want to accomplish in the future, and what better way than to take stock of what is important to us about what we do? I've been in the commercial real estate industry for 30 years. I know what my answer to the poll would be, and will reveal it in the post-poll wrap up. What about you? Is it the money, the people, the challenge, a combination of the three? Something all together different. What is it that gets you out of bed in the morning? What is it that wakes you up at 5 o'clock in the morning? I really hope that people who can't chose one of the first three answers will use the reply option (depicted in the image below) to give their answer.Screenshot
I would be grateful if you would retweet the poll so that we can get as many responses as possible. If we get a sufficient number of responses I'll write a follow up article. Thank you for participating and sharing this with your friends and colleagues.
***FOLLOW UP*** - While hardly a statistically significant sampling (14 respondents), what people like most about commercial real estate is the challenge. Those that answered the people or the money were tied for second. No one opted to come up with a different answer. What do you think the results say about the people in the commercial real estate industry? Answer in the comments!
