CARBON PROPERTIES is known for developing first-class projects, repositioning older buildings, and providing first-rate services that enhance value for investors and quality of life for tenants.

On Development, we believe the stewardship of capital and assets should improve the physical landscape we live in, as well as the financial position of our partners. The essence of Carbon Properties is to deliberately take risks in order to “create” or “add value”. These risks come in the form of leasing exposure, development or redevelopment by stages, entitlement, change of use or other repositioning to enhance quality and increase income and value. Our regional acquisitions and development team possess hands-on experience, intimate local market knowledge and an extensive network of relationships with investment and real estate professionals, property owners and civic and community leaders. This depth of experience and expertise provides Carbon Properties with a competitive advantage in the marketplace.

On Brokerage, we aspire to establish long-lasting relationships with tenants and brokers in each market with which we operate. Additionally, we understand markets and tenants needs and appreciate how these may change over time. We take on a consultative relationship with every client, analyzing their specific needs, developing an occupancy plan and identifying suitable properties. Once completed we will negotiate the most competitive commercial terms and provide a smooth and timely path to closing.

Our commitment to personal service ensures we always satisfy our clients real estate needs and exceed their expectations with cost effective low risk solutions.

Our assets are our people, capital and reputation. If any of these are ever diminished, the last is the most difficult to restore. We will comply fully with the letter and spirit of the laws, rules and ethical principles that govern us. Our continued success depends upon unswerving adherence to this standard.

We make an unusual effort to identify and recruit the very best person for every job. Although our activities are measured in millions of dollars, we select our people one by one. In a service business, we know that without the best people, we cannot be the best firm.

We stress teamwork in everything we do. While individual creativity is always encouraged, we have found that team effort often produces the best results.
