Tony Hupp, Senior Vice President, Industrial Advisory of Colliers | Indianapolis, has been inducted into Midwest Real Estate News (MREN) 2021 Commercial Real Estate Hall of Fame.
Below is Tony's profile from the MREN Hall of Fame announcement:
The first person to work at his office? That is almost always Tony Hupp, senior vice president with the Indianapolis office of Colliers.
This work ethic, along with his market knowledge and dedication to his colleagues, has helped Hupp build one of the busiest CRE careers in the Indianapolis market.
Hupp, who has worked in commercial real estate for more than 36 years, perennially, always a strong producer on the Colliers Industrial team. He is well-connected within the industrial sector and has earned a reputation as one of the leading listing brokers in the Indianapolis market, particularly in the East, CBD and Southeast markets and surrounding counties.
"What I enjoy most about the business is staying informed on a market that changes daily" Hupp said. ''And I enjoy staying connected - with my commercial real estate peers; with the at-large Indianapolis business community; and staying informed and dialed in to what all is cooking in our city. And the diversity of the people, the interesting roles and personalities and the different projects. It's never dull!"
Hupp's peers describe him as a tireless worker, one who is always striving to bring his clients the best possible results. Drawing from his extensive brokerage and property management experience, Hupp anticipates potential challenges within an assignment and proactively manages the transaction toward the most effective solution.
Of course, even the most skilled CRE professional faces challenges in this industry.
When asked what he considers the biggest challenge in this business, Hupp said: "Keeping all participants of a project dialed in and on point to move a project forward. Things can move quickly (or stall), status can change, tasks and deadlines can get challenging. I am always focused on keeping communications open"
Tony received the 2021 Indiana Realtor of the Year for both the Indiana Commercial Board of Realtors and Indiana Association of Realtors. These honors are evidence of Hupp's contributions to the community and impact on the commercial real estate industry. His leadership at ICBR includes serving as Past President; Board Member -- District 3 Representative; ICREX Chair and Committee member; and Conference Chairman.
Additionally, in recognition of his production, marketing and overall contribution to the company, Hupp has won the Peak Performance Award for Colliers Indianapolis. He is also a past recipient of the firm's "Most Transactions Award."
"I believe my clients and co-workers always know they can count on me to complete tasks or respond to an email as needed, and to be respectful" Hupp said. "Throughout the years and various roles, my commitment to the Indiana Commercial Board of Realtors has been particularly rewarding. I feel it is important to support your industry's driving organization"
Hupp can always be counted on to be a hands-on participant for the Indianapolis office of Colliers' community field day work, the heavy lifter hauling a full wheelbarrow of mulch, the brave one on the ladder trimming the trees and the volunteer driving around making deliveries. He sets a great example of giving back.
And when not working, Hupp enjoys spending time with his family and friends, especially when that involves hours on his boat and family vacations to warm destinations. Hupp is also a new grandfather, a role that he says he relishes.
