Formation of Real Estate Firms a Result of Competitive Market / Commercial Property Management


Tipton, David, THE JOURNAL RECORD


Changes in the commercial real estate market during the past few years caused by the decline in the oil business and the g lut of office space have prompted some changes in the way in which commercial properties are managed.

The formation of two new real estate management firms within the past two weeks indicates professionals in the business see joining up with other professionals as a way to survive in a fiercely competitive environment.

The genesis of one of the new firms, Property Resource Group Inc., was slightly unusual in that the company started by assuming the management responsibilities of nine office buildings in the metropolitan area previously managed by Boston-based Spaulding and Slye Real Estate Brokerage.

"It is very tough right now to get into this business in a big way. I think we have an advantage over other firms in that we have had that experience with Spaulding and Slye which helps us provide the most professional service available."

The properties which Property Resource Group oversees include five facilities in Broadway Executive Park at NW 63rd St. and Broadway, totaling 180,000 square feet; Two Grand Park, 5701 N. Shartel Ave.; Enterprise Plaza, 5600 N. …
