Washington, D.C. – Pace Financial Servicing (“PFS”) is pleased to congratulate Senior Manager of Programs Jessa Coleman for her selection by ULI Baltimore for the 2021 Partnership Forum. The 2021 Partnership Forum is a program of ULI Baltimore’s District Council with a mission to match talented, real estate professionals under the age of 35 (ULI’s “Young Leaders”) with veterans in the industry. The purpose of the 2021 Partnership Forum is to foster mentorship for future local real estate leaders to facilitate knowledge sharing and guidance in an atmosphere of confidentiality, trust and respect.


The 2021 Partnership Forum is an eight-month long mentoring period with several discussion- and deliverable-oriented components for the participants to broaden their understanding and knowledge of the local real estate market. The Young Leaders in the forum will be organized into small groups that will meet to discuss, debate, and learn collaboratively throughout the year; the program term will be capped by a collaborative mock request for proposal (RFP) to model the best and highest use for a potential development site.


PFS is excited to support Jessa as she participates in this year’s 2021 Partnership Forum. Among her other duties at PFS, Jessa administers the MD-PACE program, a program that facilitates C-PACE financing between private capital providers and property owners seeking to improve their commercial properties with clean energy or energy efficiency measures. Under her leadership, in 2020 the MD-PACE program oversaw the financing of over $23.5 MM, the most ever in program history. Since the beginning of 2021, Jessa also facilitated the largest ever single C-PACE transaction in Maryland at over $13.0 MM. Additionally, Jessa’s support and expertise were integral to the recent passing of an amendment that will broaden Maryland’s C-PACE legislation to include resiliency, environmental remediation, and indoor air quality improvements.
