Colliers International | Wisconsin is proud to present MKE Forward, a podcast focused on our community. Our hope for MKE Forward is to showcase leaders in our community who are moving this city forward. This will not be a podcast about real estate. Rather, we hope to have open conversations with Milwaukeeans about what as a city we are doing right, and what more we can do to be good stewards of our community.
