About Us


There’s the privilege of stepping into a business that your father built from nothing. And there’s the responsibility you have to pass the business on to the next generation even stronger than you found it. Honor and obligation sit side by side. The key principles are persistence, humility and integrity.

That’s why it’s so personal for me. The deals we make aren’t just numbers on a balance sheet; they’re real relationships with people I know and respect. I want to see them do well. I want to see strong, vital cities and local communities thriving.

We don’t answer to shareholders but to one another. All of us know that the best way to honor our family legacy is to keep our promises. Work with integrity and provide a level of service other companies can not match. We continue to operate from the premise that you can do well and do good at the same time.

We remember where we all came from and remember the past and those that inspired us getting here. It’s the highly personal, mutually beneficial way we’ve done business for the past 70 years and plan to do for the next 70 and beyond.

Values that stand
the test of time

While other companies are driven by quarterly earnings, we’re driven by values that were put in place when we started. There’s our unwavering commitment to doing things the right way. Our strong belief that every deal can be a win-win proposition. Our understanding that the only way for us to do well is for our brokers and tenants to do well.

“It’s a privilege, and a responsibility to leave the business stronger than you found it. And that makes you do business differently.”

“We want to make sure the business grows and evolves while making sure that our family’s vision and purpose still guide the decisions we make.”

“Since our family business is going to be handed down to future generations, everything we do is with an eye towards our future legacy. It drives us to want to do the right thing, always.”

Our strength

You don’t stay in business for over 7 decades by being shortsighted. You do it by conducting yourself with integrity. Keeping your commitments. Always going the extra mile. Everything we do—every property we develop, every relationship we build, every community we work in—is done with a long term vision of what the future can be.
Our relationships aren’t built on what’s in it for me, but what’s in it for all of us. Not just for today, but for years to come.  We never lose sight of our ultimate goal: To leave our business, our clients, and the cities where we work even stronger than we found them.

“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence”.

“We’re not just making deals for today. We’re looking at what our clients want to achieve, where they want their businesses to be years from now.”

“It’s not about selling square footage today; it’s about seeing businesses and the communities that surround them do well over time.”


In holding ourselves to the highest professional and ethical standards.

That you can do well and do good at the same time.

That if you do the right thing, good things will happen in return.  

That we are responsible to one another, our colleagues, our clients, and the communities we live and work in.

That our business can be successful for generations if we uphold the legacy of integrity we’ve inherited.

That working hard at something you love to do, with people you respect, is the absolute best.
