The Global conference, which was held in early April, was a sold-out event where hundreds of commercial real estate professionals gathered for honors, distinctions, education, events and more. Sheri Arnold, President of CBCAAA, and Jes Prince, Associate Broker, were awarded the 2015 Mentor/Protégé of the Year award on April 12th.

According to Coldwell Banker Commercial’s corporate office, the international Mentor/Protégé of the Year award is given to only one Coldwell Banker Commercial mentor/protégé team where a dedicated mentor has demonstrated consistent leadership qualities by formally guiding a colleague to successful practices in the evolving and exciting commercial real estate industry. Further, the protégé must have exemplified professionalism, determination, and tremendous dedication to the Coldwell Banker Commercial organization throughout the year. This is the first time an all-female team has been awarded in Coldwell Banker history.

Sheri, the President and Broker for CBCAAA, has more than two decades of experience in economic development in the Southeast Texas area. Her expertise is far reaching into the industrial sector, office sales and leasing, retail development, and investment transactions. Sheri holds the Certified Commercial Investment Manager (CCIM) designation and is a member of numerous professional organizations, including the Commercial Real Estate Women’s group (CREW). She is an active member and volunteers in several local chambers of commerce, participates in numerous civic and charitable events, and is also a member of the Beaumont Rotary Club.

Sheri also has an eye that recognizes talent. In 2014, she recruited Jes to join her Beaumont, Texas office. In her first year alone, Jes completed more than 20 transactions. Ambitious in more than one area, Jes proved to be a strong addition to the team, as she was the first person from CBCAAA to attend the Emerging Broker Training class, where she finished in the Top 3. This year, she is also a candidate for the CCIM designation with an estimated completion date of October 2016. Born and raised in Beaumont, Jes graduated from Lamar University and remained in Southeast Texas where she has been Chief Operating Officer of GCI since 2005.
