The Philosopher Heraclitus once said, “The only thing that is constant is change.”


First Commercial Real Estate Services, however, has had several constants since its origin. Customer service, excellent communication and delivering results are just a few constants that will continue to be a top priority for the company. Change though, is inevitable and often a catalyst for exciting opportunities. After almost 11 years, Christie Sullivan, Marketing Manager and Broker for First Commercial is making a change in her professional career. Christie reflects, “I have learned so much working with Terri. Pursuing excellence and never settling for anything but the best for clients are just two of the many things I will take away from my time here. I can honestly say that this ‘work family’ at First Commercial has been incredibly special and a rare blend of unique personalities that I know cannot be duplicated anywhere.” Christie is headed to Church Extension Plan (CEP) where she will be their new Marketing Project Manager. 

Providentially, (some might say) the day after Christie announced her impending departure, her replacement was secured. That being said, we are pleased to announce that Ruth Dana has joined the First Commercial Real Estate Services Team. Ruth began her real estate career in 1989 and has been a crucial member of several commercial real estate teams with a specialization in marketing and transaction management. Her strengths include developing and executing marketing strategies for a wide variety of commercial properties and her commitment to keeping her clients informed throughout the entire real estate transaction. Ruth is married to Jim and has two daughters. About Ruth, Christie says, “I am so excited for Ruth to take First Commercial to the next level. She is a great fit for this unique ‘family’ and while I’m sad to leave such a special place, I’m so relieved that I’m leaving this position in such capable and experienced hands.”

All of us at First Commercial wish Christie the best and thank her for her dedication and positive spirit that we know CEP will now have the pleasure of experiencing.
