Tricor Holding Own in Adverse Property Management Environment


Tipton, David, THE JOURNAL RECORD


Anyone who manages an office building, shopping center or other commercial property in the sunbelt states does not need to hear how difficult it is these days to retain a sufficient number of tenants to stay profitable.

But Tricor, a diversified firm which handles a wide range of responsibilities from property management and leasing to investment counseling, is holding its own against stiff competition and the adverse economic conditions.

"We are primarily concerned with providing the best quality service to our tenants. We have to be service-oriented, because there is so much available space out there we know how easy it would be for tenants to pack up their bags and go if we don't provide the type of quality they expect."

Something else which has proven an asset to Tricor is that the company has very strict standards about the office buildings it chooses to manage. …
