Phoenix, AZ — Commercial Properties, Inc./CORFAC International. (CPI), Arizona’s largest locally owned commercial real estate brokerage which began business in 1981, was honored and humbled to be recognized in the 2018 Ranking Arizona – The Best of Arizona Business, as the #1 Commercial Real Estate Property Management Team as selected by its clients, tenants, vendors, and contractors.
CPI’s pride in and dedication to providing its clients with the highest level of service stems from Leroy Breinholt. “We are incredibly honored to receive this recognition from commercial real estate industry professionals because of what it means for our people,” said Leroy Breinholt, President / Designated Broker. “Our property management division has focused on helping our clients achieve their goals while streamlining the process to save time and reduce operating expenses.”
Leroy’s contagious devotion to customer service and impeccable ethics sets the standard for the CPI team. This powerhouse team has worked hard to earn a reputation for being trusted experts and business partners. Currently, CPI’s listings include 21.2 million square feet for sale/lease and provide property management and receivership services to more than 11.4 million square feet under management.
The property management division is led by Cecil Yates, who came to CPI in 2015 with over 20 years of real estate and economic development experience. Cecil’s high ethical standards, impeccable business integrity, and out-of-the-box ideas made him the perfect match to oversee the property management division. “With 37 years of experience, CPI knows the importance of exceeding expectations of owners and tenants and building strong, lasting relationships, said Cecil Yates, Director of Property Management. “Our property managers are attentive and highly responsive to the individual needs of our clients, as well as our tenants.”
“Cecil and I worked together to restructure the management division which helped us grow,” said Brian Ruddle, General Manager / Partner. “It’s a modular team-oriented approach between management, support, and accounting. This enables the management teams to treat the properties as if they own it themselves and keeps ownership better informed.”
This all-inclusive model has permitted CPI’s portfolio to grow exponentially. So much so, that they have more than doubled the portfolio size since Yates’ arrival. This type of growth made it necessary to acquire a separate building for Property Management which is located within the CPI business park complex. “I am so proud of the entire property management division,” cheered Yates. “This truly was a team effort between the executive team, property managers, accountants, support staff, marketing and our construction/maintenance department.”
