Meet Our Newest BOMA Team Member: Justin Wallander

We are so excited to have Justin Wallander join our BOMA Team! He officially started February 4, 2019 and will be jumping into his new role as Administrative Support Specialist. Please join us in welcoming Justin to the team!

Here's a little about Justin in his own words:

"Hi everyone! My name is Justin Wallander and I’m the newest member of the BOMA Seattle team. I’m excited to get to know you all, and start my new role as administrative support specialist. I am a recent transplant from Flagstaff, Arizona, where I graduated from Northern Arizona University. So far, I love my new city, even sitting in rainy traffic!

When I’m not in the BOMA office, you can find me at home trying to cook new recipes or performing and writing stand-up comedy. Both of these hobbies sometimes go up in flames! Thanks for taking the time to check this out, and again, I am looking forward to meeting you all. Go Hawks!"

When you see him at the next BOMA event, please say hi!

2019 EER Surveys Now Open

Sharing your property’s data with BOMA International’s just-opened 2019 Office EER and Industrial EER surveyscomes with big benefits. You’ll get deep discounts on and priority access to subscriptions for the 2019 benchmarking reports in June, as well as a free top-level Market Snapshot.

Once you’ve saved money on your EER subscription, you’ll be ready to save even more by benchmarking your commercial property using the Office EER or Industrial EER. Research shows that properties that use the EER to benchmark their properties can save up to 3% each year on operating expenses.

Any commercial property can submit prior-year income and expense data to the 2019 surveys, regardless of whether or not the property is owned or managed by a BOMA member. The online submission form allows most respondents to finish in about 30 minutes, but there’s no need to complete an entire survey at once. Save your answers as you go and return to the form as many times as needed before the April 1 deadline.

And, you’ll never need to worry about the data you share: Only market-level information is published and all data submitted is kept in strictest confidence.

Remember: All date submitted is kept in strictest confidence, and only market-level information is published.

Start your survey now at eer.boma.org.
