Contrary to what many people may first think, “real estate” encompasses far more than simply the residential brokers that help you buy and sell your home. In fact, the term refers to a much broader industry, including developers, financial analysts, corporate real estate officers, property managers, appraisers, and more.
Facility management is a profession that encompasses multiple disciplines to ensure functionality, comfort, safety and efficiency of the built environment by integrating people, place, process and technology. From apartment complexes to office building to manufacturing facilities to complex mixed use campuses, facilities managers help ensure the real estate works to meet the needs of the people it serves.
