Cushman & Wakefield/NorthMarq's Julie Hughes ends her 40-year career in CRE

When Julie Hughes first went to work with Minneapolis' United Properties in 1973, she was a rarity: There weren't many women in commercial real estate. On April 1, Hughes officially retired from Cushman & Wakefield/NorthMarq in Minneapolis as a senior vice president and regional director of property management. And during Hughes' 40-year career, she saw plenty of changes. None, though, have been as satisfying as seeing a growing number of women not only enter commercial real estate but make a difference in the field.
