Say hello to CREW Pittsburgh member Meredith Calfe, Jendoco Real Estate!

February 7, 2022
What role do you play in the commercial real estate industry?
Jendoco Real Estate leases industrial flex space throughout the greater Pittsburgh region.

How did you get started in your current position?  
I worked as an attorney in the field of oil and gas leasing for nearly a decade before transitioning to commercial real estate. It’s been very exciting. My favorite part of the job is getting to know our tenants and learning about some of the amazing work they do.

Where is your favorite place to go out in Pittsburgh (Strip District, zoo, cultural district, etc.)?
I live within walking distance of Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. In normal years, my membership pays for itself within a few weeks.

What personal values have shaped your career?
To take ownership of my work (both the successes and the failures), to pursue expertise and share it generously, and to strive to lead with equal parts skill, courage and empathy.

What are you hoping to achieve with your CREW membership?
To add to my existing professional network of supportive and inspirational women.

Where have you travelled?  Where do you wish to travel?
I’ve gone glacier trekking on three continents, snorkeled with hammerheads in the Gal├ípagos, driven an RV across Australia and slept in the Sahara desert, but right now I’m just counting down the days until I can travel safely to my neighborhood bar. I miss trivia night.

Do you have any pets?  
What kind(s) and what are their name(s)? I have a cranky 17-year-old Chihuahua named Moose.
