What Macadam Forbes is Thankful For
In reaching out to our brokers and asking what they are thankful for in commercial real estate, one would expect to hear answers awash with industry buzzwords. 2015 has been the year of record-breaking development as well a flurry of corporate growth making it a very good year to be a broker. It shouldn’t have been surprising that the overwhelming response is their clients. Todd Collins summed it up best:
I am thankful for my client loyalty and being seen as a trusted partner in their businesses. I am thankful for the variety of clients and businesses that we are able to work with year after year. I am thankful for the freedom to pursue different opportunities in the marketplace. I am thankful for the work environment at Macadam Forbes and our reputation in the marketplace.
Without our clients and their confidence in our expertise we wouldn’t be the company we are today and for that we are thankful. Here are a few of the other responses:
I’m thankful for every NNN Investment that comes on the market.
I’m thankful Portland is a great place to live and do business. It’s not perfect, but there’s a reason so many people are moving here.
In no particular order, I am thankful for the following
- Spell check
- Loose Fed policy which has left the market awash in cash and resulted in much higher real estate prices (apparently) without overleverage
- Landlords that realize overbuilt office needs to be demo’d back to warehouse or it will remain forever vacant
- Client loyalty
I am thankful out-of-state buyers realize the value of Portland real estate.
I’m thankful that Commercial Real Estate and Macadam Forbes has given me an (almost) 35-year career.
I am thankful for our clients and customers who continue to choose Macadam Forbes to represent them in commercial real estate needs.
