Bittersweet Farewell

As a new year at Cohen Commercial begins, new opportunities also present themselves to our team in many forms. For one beloved team member in particular – Office Assistant Blake Prolow – an out-of-state journey has taken shape as he leaves us to attend the University of Wisconsin Madison.

Prolow details his experience at Cohen Commercial beginning with his internship during Summer 2021. He says, “I came in with an open mind and not knowing what to expect. I quickly began forming relationships with the agents and other interns. I learned about the commercial real estate market, and my focus was mainly on investment sales considering my finance background.”

Following his summer internship, Prolow quickly realized he wanted to take more classes in real estate and focus on integrating it into his career. “When I returned as an Office Assistant, I was able to continue to grow my knowledge and passion for the real estate industry,” he says. He felt especially thankful to have the opportunity to continue to grow relationships with the team of agents as they began to trust him with larger projects along the way. Longtime Associate Remington Philips says, “I was always impressed by the level of detail in his work and how fast he would complete a project.”

“Now having completed both my internship along with my experience as an Office Assistant, I am excited to go to school at the University of Wisconsin to study finance and real estate.” — Prolow

From the entire Cohen Commercial team, we wish Blake the best of luck on his new journey. We will miss you!
