MEET OUR SPONSOR: Bradford Commercial Real Estate Services
Bradford Commercial Real Estate Services' biggest asset is its senior management team: Debe Nichols, Anne Turney, Mark Wilshire (Dallas BOMA prez), and David Simpson with Krystal Zahniser (front). Bradford's success lies in a team coverage concept for each asset and a decentralized operating structure with five fully staffed offices across the Metroplex. With more than 20M SF of property to lease and manage, senior-level experience guides the process with a system of backup personnel so that service is always the priority, Anne tells us. The Bradford management model has served the firm well, adding increased property assignments from special servicers and lenders in the past two years (Bradford sold 40 REO assets in 2010), which complements its traditional institutional client base. The firm has helped stabilize and transition multiple properties, which works best with a seasoned PM staff, Anne tells us. Find out more about Bradford here.
