Stream Realty Partners has recruited a 15-year property management veteran to create a distinctive customer experience for its Northern Virginia clients.
Marissa Thorne joined the national real estate services, development, and investment firm as a Vice President of Property Management in Northern Virginia. She will work alongside Regional Managing Director Dorothy Hamilton to manage a portfolio of trophy-class assets and provide mentorship for office teams at Reston Commons, Dominion Point, and properties in the Stewart Invest Partners and GI Partners portfolios. She comes to Stream from Brookfield Properties, where she spent nearly 12 years on property management teams in Silver Spring, Maryland, and Washington, D.C.
“Stream embodies people as the center of its business,” Thorne said. “I am a strong believer that productive work environments are best fostered through meaningful employee relationships and acknowledgment of each member’s self-worth. Stream makes this a priority through its four core values.”
Thorne began her career in commercial real estate as a Senior Research Associate at CoStar Group after graduating from Marymount University with a Bachelor of Business Administration concentrated on marketing. She then transitioned into property management, working for Edens & Avant for three years before landing at Brookfield Properties. She has managed more than 3 million square feet of office space during her career.
Thorne is an advocate for making parking garage operations more sustainable. One of her properties had the first Parksmart-certified parking garage through Green Business Certification, Inc., allowing her to assist with developing the certification process for future garages. Among her proudest professional accomplishments has been speaking at various conferences and seminars about the certification process as well as on topics of LED lighting in parking garages and green roofs.
Thorne is a Certified Property Manager candidate through the Institute of Real Estate Management. She is a LEED Green Associate through the U.S. Green Building Council, Fitwel Ambassador for the Center for Active Design, and member of the Apartment and Office Building Association of Metropolitan Washington (AOBA).
She is a graduate and member of Project REAP, The Real Estate Associate Program that advances diversity, equity, and inclusion in the commercial real estate industry through education, mentorship, and partnerships.
