Beyond staff, real estate costs are often the biggest expense for nonprofits. Beginning this week, we are adding a new weekly segment focused on real estate and office space. We're partnering with Catherine Esselman of Penn Real Estate(pictured above) to show you inspiring reuses, great office spaces, and cost effective strategies to make the most of your facility space. Check it out each week for an insight into a building you haven't seen or a story you didn't know. If you have a facility or real estate story that you think could be interesting to others, contact Catherine at firstname.lastname@example.org. Catherine Esselman has been working in commercial real estate for 8 years. She began in the retail sector, working as a leasing agent for a shopping center developer out of Cleveland, Ohio. After returning to Indianapolis, Catherine joined Penn Real Estate and got involved in the exciting things happening in Fountain Square and downtown Indianapolis. She has a passion for creative reuse and for helping nonprofits find the right work environments for their staff and volunteers. Her unique perspective on the local real estate market has been a valuable resource for both nonprofit and for-profit clients.
