The mission of the SCU Real Estate Industry Group is to serve as a networking organization for alumni with careers in any function within real estate. We hope to engage Broncos by facilitating social-networking events, providing student mentorship/internship opportunities, promoting our industries on the SCU campus and community, and sustaining the communication activity among the alumni body.
Carrick Young is a native of Silicon Valley. He attended Bellarmine College Preparatory and went on to graduate Magna Cum Laude from Santa Clara University with a degree in Finance. While at the University, he founded the school’s Real Estate Association which quickly grew from a handful of members to over one hundred and fifty. The Association was instrumental in demonstrating a demand for real estate offerings among the students to the school and putting on events throughout the year – most notably the school’s first annual “Location of Innovation” Real Estate Symposium. Currently, he works as an Associate Broker at Cushman & Wakefield in San Jose focusing on tenant rep work for office and R&D product.
Having worked with some of the most elite entertainment moguls in Los Angeles and represented clients in record-breaking sales, Bay Area native Gina Blancarte is thrilled to return to San Francisco to add to the success of The Agency’s Noe Valley office. The recipient of The Agency’s prestigious MVP Award in 2016 for her impressive sales volume just a year after joining the team, Gina quickly established herself among L.A.’s most talented agents. Her first transaction with The Agency remains the highest-priced sale in Culver City and landed her on an episode of Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles. Born and raised in Silicon Valley, Gina attended St. Francis High School in Mountain View before earning her degree in communications from Santa Clara University. When she’s not serving her clients in real estate, her passions include the advancement of women in the marketplace, animal activism, and the arts. She is proud to serve as Co-President of her SCU Real Estate Alumni Group, in addition to serving on the board of SCU’s Own It, a summit dedicated to helping young women advance in life and the workplace.
