Lois Zambo, Vice Chairman and Co-Regional Manager of Studley’s Washington, DC region, was recognized today by Bisnow for her many achievements over the course of her nearly 40 year career. Lois received the Bizzy award at the 2nd Annual DC State of Office event at The Mayflower Renaissance, Washington, DC Hotel.
In a one-on-one interview with Mitchell Schear, President of Vornado/Charles E. Smith, Lois shared stories from her impressive career in commercial real estate, offered insights on the current real estate cycle and reflected on how the industry has changed, most notably in the increase of women in the field, since she first began. To this day, Lois remains charmed by the seemingly small real estate community in DC and still loves the business for the fact that it’s “absolutely not boring…every deal is different, challenging and a lot fun.”
Since joining Studley in 1975, Lois has become one of the DC area’s most iconic women in commercial real estate. She is best recognized as the broker behind USA Today’s move to the DC area in the mid-1980s. She also assisted the Freedom Forum with the purchase of 6th & Pennsylvania Avenue to create a new DC home for the Newseum – a historic transaction that both The Washington Post and the Washington Business Journal have called the “Deal of the Century.”
In honor of her award, Bisnow made a donation to the Wounded Warriors Project, an organization Lois believes in and supports.
Studley congratulates Lois on her esteemed career and this well-deserved recognition.
