In the world of commercial real estate, achieving the prestigious SIOR (Society of Industrial and Office REALTORS®) designation is a hallmark of excellence. It’s a distinction that signifies not only a high level of expertise but also a commitment to ethical conduct and professional integrity. And we’re proud to announce Alex Soundy, a partner at Bender Commercial, has recently added his name to the list of SIOR designees, solidifying his reputation as a top producer in the highly specialized field of office and industrial real estate.
The SIOR designation is not easily attained. To become an SIOR, individuals must complete at least five years of creditable experience in real estate, demonstrating their commitment to this niche field. Additionally, they must meet stringent educational requirements, ensuring they have a deep knowledge of the industry and its ever-evolving dynamics and meet a minimum production standard. Demonstrating professional competence, ethical conduct, high production and deal flow, and personal integrity are also fundamental criteria for becoming an SIOR designee.
“Alex Soundy’s achievement is a testament to his dedication to the industry. With a background marked by years of experience, he has risen to become a leading professional in the Sioux Falls commercial real estate sector. The SIOR designation solidifies what the market is already experiencing—Alex is a leading commercial real estate broker in Sioux Falls” said Bender Commercial President, Reggie Kuipers.
