  • Name: My name is Regina, but it’s Gina for me.
  • Residence: Marietta, GA
  • Approach: I listen closely to what our clients say and, more importantly, what they don’t say. I take a look at situations from different perspectives to understand all points-of-view. It’s how I generate the most effective results. I foster creative, big-picture concepts yet scrutinize every detail. Our clients should be memorable – that’s our job. When you’re happy – I’m happy. To me, it’s more than just a job
  • Strength: Creative concepting and event management
  • Past Life: In 1996, I headed to Atlanta with dreams of a career with the Atlanta Braves. With no batting average and little marketing experience, it was Ben Carter Properties/CNM Associates/Ben Carter Associates who saw my true marketing potential. Here, I climbed the ladder to eventually pioneer marketing initiatives. A move to Ronus Properties put me at its marketing helm until 2004. It was time for my own gig – insideOut marketing. It was a success story only to become an even greater one when I merged with BouncePath in 2006. Every page in this story afforded me great insight on life and business. For that, I’m grateful.

Our 20th anniversary story of gratitude

It’s hard to believe that BouncePath has been telling stories with some of the best and the brightest for some of the most respected in commercial real estate for 20 years!

When we started, mobile phones were a thing but they weren’t smart. It was a workout to carry a laptop through the airport. Megabytes were the max. And media didn’t socialize.

Fast forward many, many emails, pixels, meetings, jpgs, tradeshows, gigabytes, hits, PDFs, calls, searches, laughs, successes… and, most importantly, stories. It’s 2021.

Our journey stretched our storytelling talents, partnered us with amazing professionals, supported trend-setting, box-breaking developments and companies, grew our talent bench with the finest mavens, and – most importantly – delivered top-notch results for those who welcomed us as part of their roster.

We are full of gratitude for everyone who touched our lives and made 20 years possible. That’s you. That’s our clients – past and current. Our colleagues. Our friends and family. Our cheerleaders. Our team. Our success is your success. Without you, we could not have done it!

So, thank you. For the opportunity to be BouncePath. To share stories. To be fanatics. We are honored to be here today, and we look forward to sharing the next 20 years with you. Cheers!
