Wesley Cox, CCIM, Senior Advisor with SVN/Miller Commercial Real Estate in Salisbury, MD was awarded the National Association of REALTORS 2013 National Commercial Award. The award recognizes excellence in the commercial real estate industry by honoring accomplished realtors for their local achievements. Cox is one of only 59 national award recipients, and the only recipient from Maryland. When asked about the award Wesley said, “It is a great honor to have been selected for this national award and to be a representative of the commercial real estate industry. As community stakeholders we should all have goals that help preserve and improve our enviable quality of life we have on the Shore and to help our community move forward in a positive direction.”

A factor in Wesley being an honored recipient was receiving the Rotarian of the Year Award from the Wicomico Rotary Club. The purpose of that award is to recognize someone that carries out the Rotary’s Four Way Test on a daily basis and someone that has demonstrated exemplary humanitarian service with an emphasis on volunteer efforts. Mission of Mercy, The Christian Shelter, Salvation Army, and the Village of Hope are a handful of the organizations that have benefited from Wesley’s work. As the Managing Broker of SVN/Miller Commercial Real Estate, Brent Miller, CCIM, CPM commented, “I am extremely proud of Wesley’s accomplishments which go to show his and our commitment to the community and the commercial real estate industry.”

As a 12-year veteran of commercial real estate, Cox specializes in the sale and lease of commercial investment property, industrial, retail, self-storage, office, and land located on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and Southern Delaware.

1. What is your geographic market and product specialty?

I cover most of Maryland’s eastern shore. I have experience in all product types with a specialty in dealing with people.

 

2. What’s your latest best practice tip that you can share?

Be visible in your community.  This often means getting involved with non-profit organizations, your local chamber of commerce, and/or attending local charity events.  Many of the folks you’ll meet and get to know are CRE stakeholders.  We just won a large buyer rep assignment almost solely from being involved in the community.

 

3. What’s been the biggest change over on how you run your business in the past decade?

I just hit the decade mark in business and I would have to say the biggest change I’ve made in the last few years is to make more calls.  Coming out of college I relied a lot on technology but nothing replaces actually talking to people.

 

4. What business book do you like to recommend to your colleagues?

Books I recommend are:  Everyone Communicates, Few Connect by John Maxwell, Risk Only Money by Jack DeBoer, How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie, and Cold Calling Techniques (That Really Work!) by Stephan Schiffman.

 

5. What’s a fun fact that not everyone knows about you?

Here are two fun facts:

Growing up I never missed a day of school and I had 13 years of perfect attendance.  And for the last two years, I’ve been an assistant coach for a high school varsity soccer team that won the Maryland State Championship last season.
