Summit Panel Bios: Brandon Wiegand

I am a born and raised Las Vegas native in a love affair with my city. Working in real estate allows me to play a small part in helping craft its direction.

I work with Focus Commercial Group in acquisitions and dispositions with a primary focus on downtown Las Vegas. In addition to seeking assets that meet the investment needs of Focus, I also engage in outside investment brokerage transactions. As a native Las Vegan, I have a comprehensive, long term understanding of the market in the Valley.

I graduated from UNLV with a BSBA in Finance with an emphasis in Real Estate from UNLV Lee Business School. I am the former President of UNLV REBS (Real Estate Business Society). I sit on the board of Variety Early Learning Center. I am very active in NAIOP and currently serve on the Communications Committee.

Most recently, I organized and put on an event called Build a Greener Block with the help of several close friends. We transformed a vacant and dilapidated building into a vibrant community for a weekend to show Las Vegas what the community wants their city to look like.
