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 Katherine Cheng
Katherine has been interning with Jason Gribin and Jordan Uttal in Retail Capital Markets, based in our Downtown Los Angeles office. She has been focused on developing an ownership database, analyzing a prospective portfolio of Triple Net properties, and preparing lease abstracts for the team.
What school are you attending?
What is your major?
Business with concentrations in International Management, Real Estate, and Law
What is your favorite past time?
I love spending time with friends and traveling
What is the best advice you’ve ever received?
Be yourself. As simple as it seems, I find that being myself is the wisest, more surefire way to solve problems.
Who is the biggest influence in your life?
My family! They are my biggest supporters and source of inspiration.
What is a unique adventure or hobby people would say “wow” to?
During my latest adventure, I spent 5 glorious months in France (eating too many baguettes). I really enhanced my language abilities and cultural awareness all while mastering French style and conversing with locals. I was fortunate to be able to travel all around Europe and got very skilled at riding the Paris Metro!
What are you hoping to take away from this internship experience?
I’d like to gain hands-on experience in Commercial Real Estate and learn all the things you can’t read in a textbook. Getting to know the different pathways within brokerage and the lingo that brokers use most often.
Describe yourself in three words.
Loyal, Genuine, Driven
Tell us something most people wouldn’t know about you.
I’ve never ridden a bike
