Dedicated to building relationships and optimizing outcomes, PROPEL Real Estate Resources is committed to solution-focused deliverables, driven by core principles of excellence, integrity, authenticity, and stewardship.

“At a very basic level, I am energized by nearly all aspects of corporate real estate and facilities . . . as most organizations’ second largest operating expense, it’s invigorating to manage the lifecycle of a portfolio and events that will identify and shape an organization, attract and retain talent, and impact the bottom line. Motivated by a challenge that includes identifying and solving problems, I partner with organizations who value my professional tenure, judgment, and maturity to bring their vision to fruition.”

– Wendy Schwingel, Founder & Principal
