SVN Desert Commercial Advisors seeks record year


SVN Desert Commercial Advisors --- a full service commercial brokerage firm --- wrapped up 2019 with a 29% increase on last year’s numbers, the company reports.

SVN is a boutique brokerage in Phoenix with less than 25 brokers that covers a wide variety of landlord and tenant representation, development, redevelopment and land opportunities, according to a press release.

“Creating and executing each our individual plans and staying accountable on an individual level to reaching those goals is what creates the momentum for record-breaking years to occur,” Managing Partner Perry Laufenberg said in a prepared statement.

The DCA Phoenix office made the TOP 10 brokerages by SVN International Corp. every month of 2019. Several of the advisors of the top-ranking Arizona brokerage were also recognized for being named to the Top 100 advisors within the entire SVN network across the country.

“We have established our Phoenix brand that people recognize all over the country,” Melissa Swader --- director of marketing, PR and administration --- said in a prepared statement.

“Without PR, news highlights, social media branding, or digital media, we would be just another unseen small boutique. Marketing matters. Sharing CRE news helps other brokers, investors and developers learn more about us and what we are capable of.”

SVN Desert Commercial Advisors had a few nationally recognized sales in 2019, a release claims.

The year started off with the sale of 8th Ave Shops in January by Director of Retail Leasing and Sales Investments Rommie Mojahed and his retail team. The shopping center sold for $6.9 million in Mesa. Throughout the year, Mr. Mojahed and his retail team closed a few other sales totaling $22 million.

Additionally, the sale of the O’Neil Printing building came in at $9.23 million in the central Phoenix corridor.

Senior advisors Justin Horwitz and Paul Borgesen III represented the buyers in the transaction. They also played an integral role in representing an investor in their purchase acquisitions in the downtown Phoenix, Roosevelt Row District.

“2019 was the culmination of years of hard work refining skills and processes to provide consistently great service to all of our clients,” Mr. Laufenberg said.

Director of Retail Mary Nollenberger has worked with several clients as well, closing sales for buyers and sellers and fully leasing up shopping centers to put on the market.

Mr. Laufenberg and Managing Director Mike Gallegos have developed an on-boarding training program. With a sales training program in place coupled with a marketing platform, the SVN brokerage hopes to reach its goals, a release states.

The company claims all the advisors have been subjected to the training, tools and techniques has led to its perceived success of the office.
