How to sell commercial real estate

Thinking of selling your commercial property without a survey and title work? You may want to reconsider. Many of my commercial real estate deals in 2016, ended up having an unforeseen issue related to the title or the results of the survey of the property. Many of these issues could be resolved at the time of listing the property, rather than after a deal has been put together. By having these essential steps complete prior to listing the property, a whole lot of time and energy could be saved - not to mention alleviate potential headaches for both buyers and sellers.

2016 Lakeville Manufacturers Appreciation Reception

Our team had the honor of attending the 2016 Lakeville Manufacturers Appreciation Reception last evening at the Holiday Inn and Suites just off of County Road 70 and I-35 in beautiful Lakeville, Minnesota. 

This is an annual event our entire team looks forward to each October, and this year was no exception. In fact, this year, the City of Lakeville staff worked very hard on an impressive video which summarized the history of the Airlake Industrial Park. The Airlake Industrial Park is our backyard and where we first started our business almost 30 years ago. Thus, this year's focus on the history of the park is near and dear to our hearts.

In this video, you will learn about the history of Airlake Park and how it has grown to be the second largest industrial park in the state of Minnesota. Additionally, you will see some pictures of and commentary from our fearless leader, Jack Matasosky, which is sure to bring a smile to your face - we know it certainly did for our team!

Drones in Commercial Real Estate and Industrial Construction

By Sandra

Drones in Commercial Real Estate and Industrial Construction 

Drones in Commercial  Real Estate and Industrial Construction? They’re talked about everywhere and their benefits are sometimes far reaching or yet to be tested (I am curious to see how a drone can deliver a package during a MN snowstorm without plummeting to its death due to the added weight of the snow). Naturally, the popularity of drones made us ask; how can drones benefit those of us in the commercial real estate or industrial construction fields?
