CARR expands its presence in Arizona with addition of industry expert Monica Aguayo   

CARR expands its presence in Arizona with addition of industry expert Monica Aguayo  

     PHOENIX, ARIZONA (October 26, 2021) – CARR, a national provider of commercial real estate services specializing in representing tenants and buyers, is pleased to announce the addition of Monica Aguayo to its Arizona team.

Aguayo joins Barbara Firminger in serving the Metro Phoenix market for CARR.  Aguayo will assist clients with new office space, expansions, relocations, acquisitions, and lease renewals. She will also represent healthcare professionals in their office lease or purchase negotiations. Aguayo will identify and evaluate the most desirable property options for CARR clients.

Aguayo’s previous experience in commercial real estate was with Healthcare Trust of America and CoStar Group, both in the Valley. She is active in Valley Partnership and AZCREW.

Recently featured in Forbes, Inc. and Entrepreneur Magazine, CARR is unique in that it only represents healthcare tenants and buyers. This eliminates any conflict of interest between competing parties that arises when real estate agents attempt to work for more than one party in a transaction.

A listing agent’s fiduciary responsibility is to the landlord, whereas CARR’s fiduciary responsibility is solely to its tenant and buyer client (dentists, doctors, veterinarians, etc.). This allows CARR to maximize its client’s profitability through real estate negotiations and add significant savings to its bottom line.

A native of Joliet, Illinois, Aguayo was raised in El Paso, Texas. She moved to Scottsdale in 2017. Away from the office she enjoys running, watching movies and gardening. She is the mother of two daughters.

CCIM Central Arizona and Southern Arizona chapter designees ‘pinned’ at national event

The CCIM designation signifies expertise in the commercial real estate profession

 

PHOENIX, ARIZONA (October 25, 2021) — The CCIM Central Arizona and CCIM Southern Arizona chapters have recognized seven members who recently earned the Certified Commercial Investment Member designation, the global standard for professional achievement in commercial real estate, from the CCIM Institute.

Headquartered in Chicago, CCIM Institute is one of the largest global commercial real estate networks.

The following Arizona CCIM chapter members were among the 122 industry professionals who earned the CCIM designation during the organization’s fall CCIM Comprehensive Exam testing session, which was held in Pittsburgh.

Thomas Ellixson, Menlo Group CRE, Central Arizona; Eric Ferber, Cutler Commercial, Central Arizona; David Luke, CommLoan, Central Arizona; Tucker Mackenzie, Hawkins Companies, Central Arizona; Eli Mastracci, Phoenix West Commercial LLC, Central Arizona; Jason Triano, Menlo Group CRE, Central Arizona; and Michelle Cunningham, Fort Lowell Realty, Southern Arizona.

“These latest designees join an exclusive global commercial real estate community, one that represents the highest level of expertise, experience, and ethics in the industry,” said Timothy S. Blair, CCIM, 2021 global president of CCIM Institute. “That’s why people look to this CCIM pin – each of us brings sophisticated analysis and evaluation skills to the table to make the most of every deal while never losing sight of the human factor – our clients and those we work with on a deal.”

To earn the CCIM designation, commercial real estate professionals must complete more than 160 hours of case-study-driven education covering topics such as interest-based negotiation, financial analysis, market analysis, user decision analysis, investment analysis, and ethics in commercial investment real estate.

Candidates must also compile a portfolio demonstrating the depth of their commercial real estate experience and pass a comprehensive examination.

“Obtaining the CCIM designation is not easy, but it’s worth it. They say that if it were easy, everyone would do it,” said Central Arizona Chapter President Todd Hamilton, CCIM, SIOR, Citywide Commercial Real Estate. “When I transact with a fellow CCIM designee, I know that I’m dealing with an intelligent person that I can trust. We applaud and congratulate the newest Arizona designees.”

The Alexander, a 209-unit technology, wellness centered apartment, breaks ground in Marana   

The Alexander, a 209-unit technology, wellness centered apartment, breaks ground in Marana  

     MARANA, ARIZONA (October 13, 2021) – Construction is underway for The Alexander, a new ground up 209-unit, four-story multifamily community that emphasizes technology and wellness.

A groundbreaking was held last month for the $49 million asset at 3915 W. Aerie Drive. It is owned and developed by Thornydale Apartments, LLC., c/o Sears Financial Corporation. Asset Living, formerly Shelton Residential, will manage the property.

When The Alexander is completed in June 2023, it will feature two main mid-rise buildings, six garage buildings providing 12 loft units with attached garages, and two freestanding garages. It will encompass 292,850 gross SF and 199,905 rentable SF.

     “I have lived in Phoenix, Denver, Los Angeles, and now Las Vegas and have had an opportunity to see what many innovative developers are building in those markets,” said Doron Sears, President of Sears Financial Corporation. “When I decided that I needed an apartment when I come to Tucson for work, I couldn’t find anything that completely fit my needs so we decided to build one.”

The four-story midrise features elevator service to take advantage of the mountain and city views. The Alexander will be the first midrise project in a market that is primarily garden-style walkup communities.

Amenities at The Alexander include a dog park, a barbeque area, a bike storage and repair area, a resort-style pool, fitness center, outdoor fitness area and a variety of wellness offerings.

“The overall design and amenities package are a blend of the best features from a handful of projects that I love in other cities,” Sears said. “The wellness amenities we added because they were meaningful to me and represent a lifestyle that I want to share with others. We designed the project to appeal to a large audience with upgraded countertops, flooring, fixtures and appliances.”

What sets the project apart, Sears added, are the technology and wellness amenities. Some features of the technology package are high-speed internet with property-wide secure Wi-Fi, keyless door and property access, lighting and temperature control as well as DISH TV. Units include blackout blinds in the bedrooms and adjustable smart lighting to customize the in-unit environment.

“The unit and common area finishes and amenities will set this place apart, but the technology package and wellness touches are truly unique. I said from the beginning that the highest honor will be to be copied and I believe many of the amenities we provide will become standards soon,” Sears said.

The architect of record is Way Architects P.C. (Doug Fullen) and the general contractor is EMJ Construction. Notable subcontractors included Dish Fiber and Data Link (technology package infrastructure); Perry Engineering (civil engineering); and The Planning Center (re-zoning).

Present at the ground breaking were Marana Mayor Ed Honea, Town Manager Terry Rozema, and members of the Marana Chamber of Commerce.

Industry veteran Dale Marr oversees change of leadership at Concord General Contracting

Industry veteran Dale Marr oversees change of leadership at Concord General Contracting

    MESA, ARIZONA (October 12, 2021) – Leadership is the legacy that defines Dale Marr, who in 2021 is celebrating 40 years in the construction industry, 28 of those helping guide the growth of Concord General Contacting, Inc.

“Being a part of the second generation of leadership at Concord has been a great privilege and wonderful experience. Jim and Gary Jackson founded this company on the principles of integrity and relationships. I have been honored to have the opportunity to continue growing Concord based on these guiding principles,” said Marr, a shareholder with the general contracting firm, which celebrates its 50th anniversary next year.

Marr, who will officially retire in 2022, has also been instrumental in building the foundation for the new leadership team. The transition began in 2018 when Marr handed the CEO reins to Grenee Martacho and named third-generation leaders including COO Jason Beaver and President JV Nyman.

“Concord was a smaller company when I started in 1993. Most of our work at the time was procured through the low bid system. I was hired as a project manager, and we had just opened the Tucson office, so we were poised for growth.”

In 2001, Arizona’s approval of alternate delivery methods played a key role in facilitating the next phase of growth, Marr said. This included design-build, construction manager at risk, and job order contracting. It allowed public owners to select and negotiate with construction firms based on qualifications, not just low bid.

“This necessitated creating a marketing and business development department, which became instrumental in obtaining work. I was able to help lead this process in the 2000s and help the company grow,” he said.

Concord specializes in serving the K-12 sector, religious facilities, municipal work, and higher education projects. It has expanded its portfolio in recent years to include auto dealerships, medical office buildings, municipality work, and historical renovations.

“Working with churches is one of the areas I am particularly passionate about,” Marr said. “We enjoy walking with them through the building process. To watch church members enter a new facility for which they made personal financial sacrifices is something to behold. It gives real purpose to why we do what we do.”

Since becoming a partner in 2002, Marr was instrumental in bringing to reality the transition of Concord to an ESOP (employee stock ownership plan).

“Years ago, I, along with my partners, had the vision to transition Concord to an ESOP. This became a reality just last year, but already it has had very positive effects on our company culture. This will make Concord an even more desirable firm to belong to for years to come,” Marr said.

During his career at Concord, Marr said there is one thing that hasn’t changed – the company takes pride in taking that extra step and always caring about the project, and caring about its employees.

“People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care,” Marr said. “I take that to heart with clients and our people. That’s who I am. That’s how I am wired. We don’t get every project, but we get the ones we want.”

A native of Peoria, Illinois, Marr attended the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo., and earned a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from the University of Arizona. He also played football at the academy.

“I’m most proud of helping develop our people over the years and influencing the culture of Concord,” Marr said. “To the best of our ability, we’ve tried to hire people with solid character traits, knowing that, along the way, we will teach the technical skills and the unique Concord style that sets us apart from other companies.

“We want to be known not only as a great general contractor to work for, but also a place where a person can thrive and achieve their professional goals beyond just earning a paycheck.”

NAI Horizon negotiates $25M land purchase in Surprise on behalf of Tempe-based Carvana

     PHOENIX, ARIZONA (September 30, 2021) – NAI Horizon Senior Vice President Isy Sonabend and Agent Drew Eisen represented the buyer, Tempe-based Carvana, in the $25 million purchase of 148 acres in Surprise, Arizona.

Carvana is a leading e-commerce company that sells used cars through an easy-to-use technology platform. The purchase in Surprise comes about a month after Carvana closed on 3 acres on the corner of Loop 101 and 83rd Avenue near Bell Road in Glendale.

“Carvana is making a strong statement in Phoenix with its current acquisitions,” Sonabend said. “The site will be developed into a restoration and storage yard.”

Surrounding land sites in Surprise are home to Crescent Crown, Amazon, MLily and numerous Fortune 500 companies.

“We pursued several sites. However, the location of the Cactus Commerce Center and surrounding utilities provide a quick pathway to development,” Sonabend said.

The seller, Surprise/Dysart Properties of LLC of Orange, California, was represented by Tony Lydon with JLL.
