Originally from Dallas, Texas, I graduated from TCU's Neeley School of Business in 2014 with a degree in Finance and minors in Accounting & Spanish. Upon graduation from TCU, I pursued a 12-month Fellowship in the Dominican Republic working with a micro-finance non-profit whose aim is to alleviate poverty through economic empowerment. Upon return from my Fellowship in 2015, I began my career in commercial lending at Frost Bank in Dallas, eventually landing in the Commercial Real Estate lending group. After two years at Frost, I moved to Denver, Colorado and started with Essex Financial Group as a real estate analyst. As a real estate analyst, my core responsibilities include underwriting income-producing properties and preparing debt request packages for debt placement. My passions include live music, sports, and volunteering, specifically with efforts concerning the advancement of education. Blaire is actively involved in CREW Denver and NAIOP's Developing Leaders program.
