Menlo Group Senior Vice President Steve Berghoff, CCIM, SIOR, has joined the elite Society of Industrial and Office Realtors (SIOR). The designation is awarded to commercial real estate professionals who demonstrate strong transactional history and high ethical behavior.
“I am honored to be in such great company with so many well-respected colleagues,” Berghoff said. “SIOR membership offers many rewarding benefits, including continuing education and networking with like-minded peers.”
The SIOR network includes only 3,400 members worldwide. To qualify for the designation, Berghoff completed coursework in ethics, demonstrated strong transactional history and received letters of endorsement from current SIOR members in the Arizona chapter.
Last year, Berghoff also completed the requirements to earn his Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) designation. He joins Menlo Group advisors Grafton Milne, CCIM, SIOR, and Tanner Milne, MBA, CCIM, SIOR, as only a few individuals in Arizona to hold both designations.
“Steve has been with Menlo Group for a few years and has always demonstrated extreme professionalism,” Tanner Milne said. “I’ve been thrilled to be a part of SIOR, and I’m excited to see another Menlo team member join the ranks of this worldwide group of commercial real estate professionals.”
Berghoff began his career in commercial real estate in 2003. He worked for Scottsdale-based Clayton Companies as an asset manager before joining Menlo Group in 2015. During his time at Menlo Group, Berghoff has successfully closed over 190 deals valued at over $87 million. As Senior Vice President, he primarily represents landlords and sellers of office and medical properties in the East Valley.
“This achievement is quite simply a byproduct of having fantastic clients, incredible mentors and a unique and supportive culture at Menlo Group,” Berghoff said. “My wife and daughter have also supported me and offered endless encouragement over the years.”
