Faces of BOMA | Nicole Murphy Schuck
Meet Nicole Murphy Schuck of CBRE. Nicole currently serves on the BOMA San Diego Board of Directors as a Member-at-Large. Over the past few years, Nicole has grown from being an emerging leader in the commercial real estate industry to becoming a Real Estate Manager for one of the largest property management firms in San Diego.
1) What is the name of your Company, your role and what type of buildings do you manage?
*I manage roughly around 260,000 square feet of office buildings in the UTC area, that includes a Class A building.
2) Congratulations on making on to BOMA San Diego’s 2019 Board of Directors. What advice can you give our members and emerging leaders who are interested in stepping up and taking on leadership roles in our Organization?
*I’m a huge believer of Karma in this industry. I couldn’t have gotten where I am today professionally and within BOMA without the advice and support of some amazing associate members, they are truly the backbone of this organization. Remember, that it is not a competition on who can outshine another member, it’s about being kind and building each other up professionally; and as human beings.
3) How has your participation in BOMA helped you become a better property manager?
*You get something out of this organization if you put in the time and effort, first. By having a deep involvement with the Emerging Leaders and Programs & Seminars committees I was able to know about upcoming legislative laws that would be affecting my properties in the new future. Also, one of my properties just conducted a remeasurement to the new BOMA 2017 standards and it was valuable to already know how these new guidelines would be changing my property square footage. I’m also still working on my RPA and the classes that are offered through BOMI international have helped me become more confident and knowledgeable in areas that could be intimidating for people who are relatively new to this industry.
4) What would be your ideal way to spend the weekend?
*I’m known as more of the kooky and eccentric members of BOMA, so it wouldn’t come as a surprise I love exploring historical (and possibly haunted) places. Also, I love whiskey and bourbon! So perhaps exploring a creepy old place that would look like it was from Scooby Doo cartoon and then having an old fashioned as a nightcap after, would be my ideal weekend night.
