Case Studies

The Bakery Building

The brokers at Ethos Commercial Advisors were involved in selling the 80,000 square feet multi-building portfolio spanning more than a city block. The buyer was a developer that repurposed the aging industrial space into a creative office building. Following the extensive restorations, the Ethos team leased the multi-tenant building to stabilization and continues to lease the building.

OREV Specialty Vet Care

The brokers at Ethos Commercial Advisors represented the medical team at OREV Specialty Vet Care in the purchase of their new office. With deep knowledge of the specific requirements for veterinary uses, Ethos was able to find tune the deal to match the financial and operating needs of this specialized practice.

Summerlinn Corporate Center

The brokers at Ethos Commercial Advisors secured a listing to sell Summerlinn Corporate Center, a 65,000 square foot class-A office building located in the suburbs of the Portland, Oregon metro area. At the time the listing was secured, the building was 82% occupied with several tenants with near-term lease expirations. Over the course of nine months the building was brought to 95% occupancy and strategic leases were renewed. Ethos maximized the building’s value through both purposeful leasing efforts and strategic marketing.
