CCIM Excellence Awards


Michael and I were very honored to share the award for the Largest Industrial Lease transaction in Utah last year. The CCIM Utah Chapter hosted another great event at the Grand America Ballroom at the annual Excellence Awards. We've been very fortunate to have incredible clients, an amazing team at IPG and feel lucky to live in the State of Utah where support from the the Governor's Office of Economic Development and EDCUtah can't be beat. Team Utah always rolls up their sleeves to create an environment for businesses to flourish and grow. Special thanks the Herriman City, Kennecott/Rio Tinto, Riverbend Management, and of course, Bullfrog International for giving us the chance to participate in the new building of the new corporate headquarters and manufacturing facility for Bullfrog Spas.

The busiest start ever!


The busiest start EVER!


If your company is like several of our clients, then you are busier than ever!  Typically in commercial real estate things tend to slow down in January and February and start to pick back up in March and April.  Not this year!  We have seen the strongest start to a new year ever in our three decade careers.  It seems unintuitive, but perhaps economist Mark Dotzour was right a couple of years ago when he pronounced that our economy might just skip over the economic recession just like a fast driving car on a pothole filled dirt road.  (Link to Mark Dotzour presentation here: )

 It truly has been a fast and furious ride and one that we are grateful to experience with all of you, our friends, families and clients alike.

 Hope you have a great rest of winter and looking forward to watching the flowers start to come up in the next 30 days or so!
