Our Mission: To Advance the Commercial Real Estate Brokerage profession in the Greater Washington, DC area by serving its members through education, networking and recognition.

Congratulations to the 2016 YBN Community Service Award winner, Thomas Cleaver of CBRE!

During his career with CBRE, Thomas Cleaver has been involved in some of the Washington Metropolitan area’s most sophisticated transactions, advising on real estate decisions that have helped shape the regional skyline. His clients turn to him for more than site selection; they look to him for a tactical approach that produces creative, results-driven solutions. In addition to his representation of many of the world’s most prominent firms, Tom also has extensive experience within the institutional capital markets. He leverages this expertise and ability to understand the financial implications of various lease and sale structures to shape effective strategies for his clients. However, Tom Cleaver is not only a successful commercial real estate broker with over $3 billion in capital markets activity and more 4.5 million square feet of lease transactions; he also maintains a high level of community and charitable involvement outside the office. Tom serves as the Founder and President of Living Proof, a non-profit organization devoted to the support of cancer research. He has also worked extensively with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in various capacities for more than six years. In 2011, on the tenth anniversary of his own cancer diagnosis, Tom decided to join the LLS Man & Woman of the Year Campaign, a 10-week campaign where 20 individuals compete to raise the most money in support of blood cancer research. Over the course of the 10-week competition, Tom and his campaign team raised over $275k for the important work of blood cancer research and he won the man of the Year title for the DC area LLS Chapter. Tom was the highest fundraiser in the nation and received the honor of National Man of the Year in 2012.
