Mary Gentile, CRX, CRM, President of LandQwest Commercial Property Management, was recently named President of the Real Estate Investment Society (REIS) for 2020.
Dedicated to succeeding in real estate through “networking, education, public service, and a common voice on pertinent issues,” the exclusive organization limits its affiliates to 250 members. These include real estate agents, property managers, developers, bankers, architects, attorneys, accountants and more.
A member of 13 years, Gentile served on the board in 2015 and 2016, where she organized its Educational Symposium and communicated Legislative updates. Over the past three years, she climbed the ranks as Secretary, Treasurer, and Vice President.
Having been actively engaged in REIS financials, scholarships, speaking engagements and more in recent years, Gentile will now preside at meetings and events, oversee all agenda items, appoint members and serve ad hoc on every committee.
“There is strength in community, in helping each other rise,” said Gentile. “I hope to make a positive impact and help to shape our industry, as the past presidents before me have done.”
REIS is affiliated with Lee County’s Horizon Council and frequently presents at FGCU’s Lutgert College of Business. Along with these associations, she belongs to the Greater Fort Myers and Greater Naples Chambers of Commerce.
As a property management veteran of 22-years, Gentile oversees the 2,500,000-square-foot LandQwest management portfolio, specializing in disaster preparedness and recovery efforts
