CRE Professionals Share How They Found Stream And Why They Stay In After Hours Podcast

San Antonio Executive Managing Director and Partner Carolyn Shaw has worked at Stream Realty Partners since she graduated from The University of Texas. Austin Associate Claudia Taylor followed a different route at first after she graduated from UT, but she landed at Stream in January 2021. While the two may work in different commercial real estate markets and have 10 years’ difference in career starts, their Stream experiences have been very similar–great mentors, lots of opportunity to learn and grow, and … a love of phone calls vs. email or texting. Carolyn and Claudia recently connected for the latest episode of “After Hours” to get to know each other better. 

Having a genuine conversation, Carolyn and Claudia share how they realized CRE was right for them, how they discovered Stream, and when it’s right to make the next step at the company. Carolyn acknowledges that she still has mentors who she turns to for guidance–some who are even younger than her–while loving and accepting that she now is a mentor for some of the firm’s newbies. The nearly 38-minute conversation also includes “ah-ha moments” from each–one of which involves three 7-year-olds–along with advice on work-life balance and how an answer to a question one day may change down the road.
