An award winning Commercial Real Estate professional and Economic Development expert, S.E. Ponds is the Urban Real Estate Starlet.
S.E.’s intention is to disrupt the current urban redevelopment game. SBMH stacks the chips on the side of long-time inner city residents and business owners – the usual targets of developers, speculators and the “Tax Man”. Characteristic of her tendency to stir things up a bit, this native Washingtonian created UrbanREStarlet.com the official home of the web series S.A.V.E. Big Mama’s House (SBMH).
In her professional role, S.E. oversees multi-million dollar commercial real estate transactions in one of the most active markets in the business. On a daily basis, she leases, acquires, and/or develops offices, multi-family housing, retail and industrial locations in Washington, DC. Many of these projects seed community revitalization in underdeveloped local sub-markets.
S.E.’s day-to-day experiences and working in an industry she loves, have only strengthened her passion to equip and empower Mom and Pop property owners to benefit from the upside of their transforming neighborhoods. Hence the makings of SBMH.
S.E. is married to Tony and mom of Miles. Her alma maters are the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, and Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management. She is licensed to practice real estate in the District of Columbia, Maryland and New York.
