CREWBaltimore member and Attorney at Jones Lang Lasalle (JLL), Christine Espenshade has been honored among other trailblazers in the commercial real estate industry as a Woman of Influence in Real Estate Forum magazine.
The only child of a single mother, Espenshade was reportedly the first person from her suburban Atlanta county to attend Princeton University. She’s come a long way since then, having managed the sale or recapitalization of more than $3.5 billion in multifamily investments during her 20-year tenure. Espenshade is also a member of JLL’s Emerging Leaders program to foster the careers of rising stars among the firm. She is on the board of The Walters Art Museum, raising more than $8 million annually, a feat that has led to the elimination of admission fees. On the board of The Pratt Library, Espenshade chairs the building and grounds committee, is the president of the Princeton Alumni Association of Maryland and is a member of Capital Campaign Committee for The Calvert School in Baltimore. She also founded a women’s networking initiative in Baltimore.
