Cyndi Light named one of Real Estate Forums’ 2014 Women of InfluenceSeptember 25th, 2014 by
Congratulations to Cyndi Light for being selected as one of Real Estate Forums’ 2014 Women of Influence. Cyndi joins an elite group of professionals nationwide in commercial real estate setting the bar for women in the industry. With hard work and dedication to their professions, these women are indeed influential in their marketplace.
Brandon Sudweeks, President of CBC Sudweeks Group said, “I am incredibly proud of Cyndi and all of her accomplishments in the commercial real estate industry in the Temecula Valley. She is a leader in our company and an inspiration to many, both personally and professionally. I am thrilled she is getting the recognition she so deserves.”
As one of the founding partners of CBC Sudweeks Group, Cyndi has played an instrumental role in the growth and success the firm has experienced thus far. In three short years, through her transactional efforts and recruitment assistance, Cyndi has helped the firm grow from a start-up commercial brokerage office with just 4 associates, to a full-service commercial real estate and property management company that now includes over 30 associates with locations in San Diego, Temecula and Redlands.
As a Partner and a Senior Vice President, Cyndi has a commitment to providing first class real estate services and plays a vital role in the commercial sales and leasing department at Coldwell Banker Commercial Sudweeks Group. She is the lead associate of the Retail Division and is continually a “Top 3” producer in the company. She has ample experience in sales, contract negotiations, leasing agreements and marketing strategies. In addition, Cyndi is a Mentor for junior associates in the firm. She recruits, trains and advises incoming new associates as they begin their career in commercial real estate.
Cyndi’s recent focus has been the redevelopment of Murrieta Crossings in Murrieta, CA. This center includes over 230,000 square feet of retail freeway visibility. Cyndi and her team have worked with the City of Murrieta to rezone the project to allow for a wider mix of uses, including restaurants and entertainment. Rezoning to allow traditional uses, in addition to modifying the center’s CC&R’s, is aiding to the transformation of the “furniture row” center into family entertainment venues. Cyndi has attracted clients that offer many choices for family fun and entertainment, bringing new life into a development once dedicated strictly to furniture stores. Tenants include AeroSports Trampoline Park, California Veterinary Associates, Ace’s Comedy Club, Pub Restaurant & Epic Roller Rink. The center had a 33% occupancy rate when Cyndi began her efforts. Murrieta Crossings is now 88% occupied, much in part to Cyndi’s commitment to succeed and create a center that will benefit the surrounding communities.
