Johnson, CCIM with over 50 years of combined brokerage experience specializing in sales and leasing of healthcare and medical office properties.
“We attribute our success to the faith our clients have in us when making their healthcare real estate decisions. We provide them with honest feedback regarding market conditions and creatively negotiate solutions,” says Talbot.
“When we are representing our clients, we consider what we would do if it was our property or decision. We have the best interests of our clients in mind and negotiate the best deal for them in the market,” states Morgan.
“Together we are able to see many deals in the healthcare real estate market and strategically advise our clients about opportunities,” Johnson comments. “In 2013, we are looking at more deals with owners and operators of assisted living centers, skilled nursing facilities and the like.
