Managing Real Estate Assets to Optimize Mission


In addition to our work with real estate companies and public agencies, corporate real estate is a major part of Heartland’s advisory portfolio. These two transactions (each years in the making) that coincidentally closed on the same day, are great examples of our work with owner/occupiers. While REI and The Seattle Labor Temple Association, Inc. are very different organizations, they share a common need to manage their real estate assets to optimize their missions. We are proud to have been able to support the continuing evolution of these two important Puget Sound organizations. You can read more about both transactions in the articles linked below.
