Portland native Emma Paustian first encountered TMT while working for one of our tenants. As a TMT employee, the company’s support for continuing education helped Emma become a licensed real estate broker.
There are lots of things Emma loves about her job, but tenant improvement projects and tenant relations top the list. Working with tenants to help make their space the very best for business is very rewarding for her. That reward helps balance some of the challenges that come with managing large properties and navigating tenant wants and needs.
Emma has impressive experience navigating outside of Portland, too. To bolster her university studies around organizational communication and global leadership, she spent a year abroad. Austria, Greece, Italy, France, Portugal and Ireland were among her stops. Plenty of West Coast adventures and outdoor activities round out this well-traveled native.
Local tastes and community service keep Emma busy outside of work. Cathedral Coffee, Breakside Brewery IPA and sushi are among her locavore favorites. Ronald McDonald House and New Avenues for Youth are two of the terrific organizations she supports.
In a city known for friendly bibliophiles, it’s no surprise Emma describes herself as “an open book.” We're eager to see where her next chapter takes us.
