Conor Commercial Real Estate is pleased to announce that Janet Protas has joined the firm as Senior Vice President – Multi-Family. In this role, Janet will be responsible for overseeing multi-family efforts and growing its development portfolio.

“We’re very excited to add another multi-family expert to the team,” stated David Friedman, President of Conor. “We are committed to growing our multi-family portfolio in several markets and are confident that Janet is the right person to lead this initiative.”

Protas comes to Conor with 30 years of experience in the real estate industry. She has worked in multiple markets across the United States with a focus on multi-family and mixed-use developments. She graduated from The University of Texas at Austin with a degree in Business Administration and later completed her MBA at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton Business School.

In her role prior to joining Conor, Protas oversaw the Midwest development portfolio at RPT, where she was charged with re-envisioning and re-developing obsolete shopping centers into multi-family and mixed-use projects.

“I am honored to join the Conor team,” remarked Protas. “The firm has a stellar reputation, and I look forward to expanding their multi-family portfolio.”

Protas is the second multi-family executive Conor has hired this year as part of their re-emergence into the market. Jason Young joined the firm in May as Vice President – Multi-Family and Dallas Market Officer to launch Conor’s multi-family efforts in Texas. Protas will initially join Young focusing on Texas markets while expanding Conor’s multi-family platform into additional markets next year.
