The annual CBA Achievement Awards honor corporate and personal excellence in the commercial brokerage industry with Special Recognition Awards, as well as recognition for Deals of the Year in several market categories.
New England Brokerage Lead Matt Daniels was awarded the prestigious McCall Leadership Award which is the highest form of praise bestowed upon a commercial real estate broker in Greater Boston.
