In Tooele County We Have Peeps That Help With Commercial Real Estate

Commercial property in Tooele UT

I want to let you all in on a huge secret.

In Tooele County we have peeps that help with commercial real estate.This means that I don’t need to fudge my track record or puff up past experiences selling commercial to get you to trust me.

Real Estate is really booming here in Tooele County. Homes will be selling in this County.  More houses mean more people and more people mean a need for offices, stores, and other types of commercial real estate.

People will be moving West.

Even those that  predict a down turn in home building in this state, usually mouth a caveat when it comes to commenting on Stansbury Park, Grantsville UT, Erda or Lake Point UT.

That increase in Population naturally creates the need for businesses and commercial real estate.

There are about 180 real estate agents in our local board and who knows how many Salt Lake agents that claim to be on top of this rural market. (That is a source for another post!).

Very few of those agents or brokerages can claim experience selling or leasing or buying commercial property.

In my 25 plus years in real estate I have done a few transactions and have probably done enough to know that there are things I don’t know and things I should know to represent myself as an expert.

So, we have aligned ourselves with another Group1 Sloan in Real Estate. Our Uncle Mike of Group1 Consulting. He is semi retired now but still works as a consultant for some of his commercial clients.

He considers us one of those.

What that means for you is: if you have a commercial question or are considering commercial property, or wanting to sell your commercial real estate in Tooele County you can work with me and get expert opinion and advice right here.

Take a look at what we can offer:
