For our third annual Summer Internship program, we’re fortunate to welcome 19 talented, high-performing interns to JLL in SoCal. These students have been very busy, immersed in real-time real estate projects, and preparing for their final presentations. We’re happy to introduce you to each of them… one at a time.
Meet Grant Geiger
Grant is interning with real estate professional Tony Morales, focused on office tenant representation. Based in our downtown Los Angeles office, Grant participates in office tours and pre-tours alongside Tony and Christian Wehrly, which has given him the opportunity to meet with clients and associates of various backgrounds. Additionally, Grant assembles sublease cost recovery analyses, attends a lot of compelling meetings, and acquires market research data. He spends the majority of his time on CoStar and Excel. During his internship, Grant has acquired vast knowledge of downtown’s unique, diverse market, as well as the responsibilities of the broker.
