A Common Ground Conversation with Lois Weiss

Lois Weiss is a respected, highly lauded commercial real estate reporter for the New York Post and columnist for Bisnow Media. She has covered New York City real estate for more than two decades and is a past president of the National Association of Real Estate Editors. She’s also the next woman to be featured in our series of Common Ground TRAILBLAZERS videos, spotlighting women who have made significant strides in commercial and residential real estate and related fields. We spent some time with Lois discussing her career and her perspective as a woman writing about the real estate field.
