10 Under 40: Retail Real Estate’s Rising Stars

Written by Debby Garbato

Joseph Dougherty, 36
Executive Vice President, Principal, Metro Commercial Real Estate

When Dougherty’s family passes one of his building sites, his three young daughters recognize the company’s logo. This, he said, is one of the most satisfying aspects of his job.

“It’s rewarding to say Daddy helped put that together,” said Daugherty, who has been with Metro 13 years. “I’ve sacrificed a lot for my kids. My wife supported my career since day one.”

Introduced to real estate by a family friend, Dougherty completed a five-year, hands-on co-op real estate program at Drexel University.

“It was more than an internship,” he said. “It was an entrepreneurial career path with new challenges daily.”

Outside of the founders, he is Metro’s youngest partner ever. Specializing in landlord and tenant representation, he has completed more than 744 lease and sales transactions totaling 10.2 million sq. ft. and valued at over $1.1 billion. His next most active business pursuit is mentoring the many younger agents at Metro.
