NAR's Cororaton Named a "Woman of Influence" by National Commercial Real Estate Outlet

WASHINGTON (May 20, 2021) – A senior economist and director of housing and commercial research at the National Association of Realtors® has been recognized as a "Woman of Influence" by the national commercial real estate outlet, a leading source of news, analysis and intelligence for the commercial real estate community. Gay (Scholastica) Cororaton was commended for her expertise in and significant contributions to America's commercial real estate sector in the publication's 2021 rankings.

"In one of the most difficult years America's commercial real estate industry has ever encountered, Gay did a tremendous job ensuring NAR's commercial members were informed, engaged and advocated for through the tremendous research output she has managed and produced," said Lawrence Yun, NAR's chief economist and the senior vice president of its research group. "In her nine years at NAR, Gay has exhibited an unwavering commitment to our members–a NAR core value–and I look forward to seeing her continue to provide exceptional service to America's 1.4 million Realtors® as the commercial real estate sector bounces back from the COVID-19 pandemic."

In her current role, Cororaton manages the production of NAR's proprietary housing, commercial, and international statistics, surveys and research. Her research specifically focuses on the effect of economic, demographic and industry conditions on the current trends and outlook for America's residential and commercial property markets.

Since 1983, the GlobeSt Real Estate Forum has recognized and highlighted the achievements of female professionals in the commercial real estate field. These individuals have impacted the market personally and have helped drive the industry to new heights through their professional efforts. Cororaton was recognized in the group's Independent/Non-Business Professional category, which encompasses commercial real estate professionals who work within a non-corporate environment.

"The power of influence is vast, and guiding forces [like] influencers yield such clout that they are able to effect change through direct and… indirect action," wrote on its website. "GlobeSt. Real Estate Forum is honored to once again shine a spotlight on the Women of Influence, class of 2021."
