Meet The Team
Annie Villamater, Acquisitions & Investor Relations Analyst
What is your role, and what does a typical day at Chasen look like?
The majority of my day is spent working on Business Development alongside Drew and Reed! I spend most of my time researching and underwriting potential properties that we may invest in to see if they are feasible for our business model. So far, I have been able to go on several property tours to check out prospective projects, and attend meetings with potential tenants who are looking to lease our retail spaces. I also will be working closely with Paul to explore our new investment platform with the goal of incorporating it into our business model and enhancing our communication/relationships with our investors.
What is a hobby of yours that you believe is beneficial in the workplace?
I love to travel. I think it’s really important to explore new places, and to remove yourself from your comfort zone. I believe that the same thing could be said for the workplace, especially when pertaining to commercial real estate!
What Baltimore community is your favorite? Fells Point! I really love the restaurant and bar scene in Fells and the fact that it’s right on the water. I love spending a Saturday afternoon hopping around and trying out different spots.
What app you can’t live without?
Instagram. I love photography and seeing what my friends are up to. I don’t typically follow the news extremely closely, so it’s also informative for me on that front. That sounds pretty Gen Z, but the heart wants what it wants.
Growing up I used to spend my Summer at my family’s beach house where I would work at the local sail shop scheduling excursions and handling retail! It was a really fun first gig.
You have 30 minutes of free time - how do you spend it?
Catching up with friends and family! Or cooking! I really love to cook, but that might be a little more than 30 mins.
Would you rather: Design or build?
Design! I almost was an art major but decided to pursue International Business instead. I really love being creative. I used to paint, glass blow, and throw pottery in high school and college. Creativity has always definitely been an outlet for me.
