Tech has always been a tricky space for commercial real estate. At first, the industry was a laggard in tech adoption; then it soon caught up. In the meantime, technology has been evolving to the point where it can remake companies’ business models and go-to-market strategies. Keeping up with these trends requires both tech acumen and a deep understanding of commercial real estate. We’ve identified some of the top people who have accomplished that in the following pages.

LUKE  ANDERSON Realty Technology Services

Driving innovation for Iowa’s largest commercial real estate company, Luke Anderson manages wide and diverse responsibilities as president of R&R Realty Group’s technology subsidiary, Realty Technology Services. Ensuring best-in-class technology across the firm’s portfolio, Anderson assists with property development, capital improvements and internal support, while leading his team to provide valuable insight and cost savings to clients. He notably designed, engineered and managed the expansion of the firm’s private network of dark fiber to connect each of the firm’s properties. In 2018, Anderson executed the total integration of technical components at the firm’s new corporate headquarters; implementing controlled access, video surveillance, digital signing, connected HVAC systems and new amenities, such as public Wi-Fi, sound masking, digital directories, online booking systems, digital white boards and interconnected focus areas. Providing further value to customers, Anderson additionally launched the independent services package, Intersect, in 2019 to deliver technological industry expertise to clients, such as data/voice consultations, structured cabling, video solutions and more. In addition to his customer-facing duties, he has directed business support systems over the past two years leading the migration of a new company-wide system. Outside of his professional responsibilities, he actively provides technology consulting to numerous charitable organizations.
