30 Under 30: Christopher Burnham
College: University of Colorado Boulder Tell us about your first or most unique job: At the age of 14, I worked on a farm in Northern Maryland caring for cows, goats and horses. This experience taught to value a strong work ethic, take responsibility and have compassion for others. Tell us about your current position: Based in the Baltimore office, I serve as a Vice President of Investments and an Associate Director for Marcus & Millichap’s National Retail Group. I exclusively represent buyers and sellers of retail investment properties in the Mid-Atlantic region. Tell us about your greatest accomplishment: Immediately following college graduation, I joined Marcus & Millichap’s sales intern program in their Washington, D.C. office. At that time, I was brand new to the commercial real estate industry. I worked diligently to learn as much as possible about the Baltimore retail market, and in just three years I significantly grew the firm’s presence and market share in the area. This growth led to the opening of our Baltimore office in 2016.
