How many years have you been in commercial real estate? 5

CRE Work Experience:

I am a Director of Capital Development and Acquisition at Flywheel Capital with previous roles in commercial development and acquisitions at Koelbel and Company and in investment sales at Capacity Commercial Group in Portland, OR. 

What motivated you to get involved in the CRE Industry?  All my life I’ve been motivated by building processes that help people and communities thrive. Flourishing communities have played an integral part in my story, shaping who I am as a 5th generation Boulderite. Though I grew up in a low-income home, I could hop on my bike, zip down to Pearl Street, and be surrounded by natural beauty, a diverse cross-section of people, and the plethora of dining and entertainment options in downtown. The confluence of business and well-placed real estate in downtown Boulder provided me with the rails to dream beyond my impoverished reality. Then I headed off to college and my interest in real estate took flight when I needed to make extra money for rent. I worked for a residential construction company, which gave me a foundation for the building process, architectural design and development philosophy of the built environment. Experiencing this in college, along with focusing on real estate in my finance studies, led me to the realization that commercial real estate was the only career path for me.

Education/Professional Certifications: 

  • Fort Lewis College: BA, Business Administration - Finance (2007)
  • University of Colorado: MS, Real Estate - Development & Finance (2021)

Personal Interests: I love to ski, hunt, fly fish, bike, and hike with friends and family. 

Proudest professional achievement thus far: My biggest achievement so far is being husband to my biggest cheerleader and father to our three amazing kids. 

Aspirations & Goals: One of my career goals is to work with a team and grow a company that seeks the thriving of the community and markets we specialize in. Another goal I have is to play a role in increasing diversity within the real estate industry by helping to establish a pipeline of mentors and opportunities for new talented candidates in the industry.

Lisa Metzger

Full Name: Lisa Metzger

Company: Galloway

Title: Architectural Project Manager, Associate 

How many years have you been in commercial real estate? 12

CRE Work Experience: I have worked as an architect now at 3 firms during my CRE tenure practicing in the healthcare, office, industrial and multifamily spaces primarily thus far.

What motivated you to get involved in the CRE Industry? Architecture is not always seen as a part of the CRE Industry; however for a truly successful project, I think it helps for the architect to have knowledge and relationships of the whole picture.  That was my motivation to get involved with NAIOP and CRE Industry as a whole.  It was to be able to grasp the entirety of my projects, all the components.  What goes into every single project to get it to the finish line and what relationships can we bring to the table to better the projects from any angle.

Education/Professional Certifications: Received a Bachelor's of Science in Architecture from University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana and a Masters in Architecture from University of Colorado Denver.

Community Outreach/Volunteerism: Beyond volunteering time in numerous NAIOP committees (DL, DEI, and previously membership), I also volunteer with Food for Thought and Boys and Girls Club regularly.

Personal Interests: For now, my personal interests involve my children and family.  We love to take our camper out almost every weekend over the summer to many destinations around Colorado and some National Parks beyond.   Its my personal goal to make it to all of the National Parks someday.  We like to hike, fish and explore.

Proudest professional achievement thus far: Definitely getting my architecture license.  Which I completed in 2016.

Aspirations & Goals: I would like to continue down the path of architecture and one day either be an owner/principal of a company or start my own firm. Continuing to focus on building relationships within CRE.


Chad Becker

Full Name: Chad Becker

Company: Arco Real Estate Solutions

Title: Principal

How many years have you been in commercial real estate? 21

CRE Work Experience: I spent the first 15 years of career in commercial real estate working for the General Services Administration (GSA) in its Atlanta, GA, Washington, DC, and Lakewood, CO offices. Included in that time period was a 4 year assignment where I served as an overseas leasing broker for the U.S. Government based out of Naples, Italy. I ended my career with the Government while working in Lakewood for the GSA after realizing a major need for qualified lessor representation in the Federal leasing niche. In 2017, I began the work of founding a niche brokerage that specialized in Lessor representation in lease transactions with the Federal Government. Since March of 2017, Arco Real Estate Solutions has served numerous clients all over the country, including Colorado, in their efforts to either renew their lease with the GSA or obtain a new Federal tenant in their building. I am also part of a small cohort of trainers around the country that teach new and experienced Federal leasing employees how to navigate and manage the Federal Lease Procurement process. Training the next generation of Federal leasing employees is a role that I take very seriously and find incredibly rewarding.

What motivated you to get involved in the CRE Industry? Originally, CRE was not on my radar.  I was a Finance major with aspirations of working in Investment Banking.  Thankfully, I was required to take two real estate electives where I was introduced to CRE.  After a brief stent with Morgan Stanley, I knew where I truly wanted to be.  Shortly after leaving Morgan Stanley, I began my career in CRE and have not looked back since.

Education: I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Finance from Georgia State University and an MBA from Colorado State University.  I have also completed the core curriculum for the CCIM designation and intend on sitting for the final exam in 2023.

Community Outreach/Volunteerism: The majority of my volunteer time is spent serving on the Board of Directors for the National Federal Development Association (NFDA).  NFDA is a niche trade organization that focuses on GSA and Veterans Affairs (VA) leasing and development.  In addition to serving on their board, I also volunteer to chair two committees within the organization.

Personal Interests: While founding and growing a niche brokerage has reduced the amount of time I have to dedicate to personal interests, I still make it a priority to spend as much time as possible with my family of 4.  I have a wonderful wife and two fantastic kids (at least most of the time), ages 9 and 7.  As a family, we truly enjoy traveling as our primary passion.  When in Colorado, we enjoy skiing (though our son is definitely the best skier in the house), and spending time exploring the West.  Having grown up in the Southeast, there is still so many places on our list to visit out here.

Proudest achievement thus far: Proudest achievement thus far would have to be the process of shaking off the warm, safe, blanket of Federal employment to pursue my dream of not only owning my own business, but also a business that served a community of building owners that generally lacked specialized representation.  While this is my proudest professional achievement, none of it would have been possible without the support and trust of my family.  It was certainly a risky venture, but one that turned out to be the best decision I have ever made!

Aspirations/Goals: I honestly have too many aspirations and goals to list, a problem with most entrepreneurs I would imagine.  But my primary goal is to make Arco Real Estate Solutions a "household name" within the niche we serve.  We have already made a great deal of progress in our short 5 years as a brokerage, but we are never content.  There is always room for growth, and my team and I are dedicated to reaching and assisting as many owners as possible that are out there working with Federal tenants.  And in pursuit of this goal, I want to create a brokerage where other talented and highly motived individuals can participate in our platform and use it to change their lives in ways they may have not previously thought possible.

What motivated you to get involved in the CRE Industry? I grew up in Chicago where the city is dripping with incredible architecture and I knew I wanted to be apart of the built environment; my knack for problem solving naturally led me into an education in engineering. One of my elective classes was Real Estate Development that initially sparked my interest in CRE. I started my career on the general contracting side where I was involved with some incredible Colorado developments - CU Boulder's Champion Center and the Gaylord Rockies.

I have recently joined Evergreen as the Industrial Development Manager, responsible for the entitlement, design and development of our growing pipeline in the Greater Phoenix and Denver markets.

What motivated you to get involved in the CRE Industry? When I first entered the CRE industry, quite frankly, I wasn't too sure of all that it encompassed. Early on I was able to venture through so many different aspects of the industry and felt a strong gravitation towards the construction and development side. I grew up in Downtown Denver and have not only seen but felt how my city has transformed. To have a voice in those changes and be able to create positive impacts for my community is all the motivation I need to keep going and stay involved with CRE.

Proudest professional achievement thus far: My proudest achievement thus far is revamping and providing economic growth and value in the very neighborhoods I once strolled. It is such a good feeling to build public infrastructure and buildings that the community and small businesses benefit from. 

Community Outreach/Volunteerism: Having a mom who is a social worker, it has been instilled in me from the very beginning that not everyone has the simple luxuries that we do. All things mental health, family homelessness and youth mentorship have impacted my life in some way, shape or form. I have made it a priority to dedicate my outreach to provide support to those very topics.

Aspirations & Goals: My professional goals right now consists of helping grow and establish Evergreen's Industrial platform, get involved with the political side of real estate through policy and planning, build my network and take on every opportunity to learn more about the industry.

How many years have you been in commercial real estate? 10

CRE Work Experience:

  • Capital markets investment brokerage, Asset Management, Acquisitions, Commercial Lending, Debt Brokerage including government agency and life insurance company lending, and parking management/consulting and business development. 

What motivated you to get involved in the CRE Industry? I was lucky to be motivated by Buz Koelbel and then Sherm Miller to start exploring the industry over a decade ago. I started to realize how commercial real estate was such an intersection of so many areas of business that I was interested in. I became fascinated with how living and breathing commercial assets could intersect so many areas of our economy both at a micro and macro level, and wanted to be a part of its growth. CRE is such a people business in every way and I realized what an incredible community there was to work with within Metro Denver. Once I found a few areas to focus on, I was hooked. 

Proudest professional achievement thus far: At home, it's my two kids.  At work, it's the relationships that I have made, no doubt. I am extremely fortunate and proud of the wonderful people that I have met and worked with along the way. I would not be anywhere without them, personally and professionally, and only hope to continue to give back to others the same way.  In a way, achievements can only be statistics or a source of pride when you think about those that helped you get there. 

Aspirations/Goals: I recently took on a role to expand Denison Parking, a national management and consulting firm,  throughout Colorado.  I hope to continue to grow our reach in this market and ultimately show our clients the significant amount of value that our platform can bring to a wide variety of projects and commercial asset classes. 

Personal Interests: Golf, Vail, Football Saturday's, Lake Michigan and chasing after my 4 and 7-year old boys.
