Phoenix, Arizona – December 22, 2017 – One of the newest advisors at SVN, Jennifer Hill who joined the SVN team in the summer is already making headlines with Desert Commercial Advisors. Hill has prided herself on working with Internet-proof retail owners looking to expand their business in other areas in the valley. Hill who recently closed over $1.5 million lease in the Northwest-part of the valley for the well-known children’s family fun entertainment venue, Urban Jungle Fun Park continues to pave the way for other retailers looking to expand.
SVN Advisor, Jennifer Hill represented the owner, Yam Properties in Urban Jungle’s first lease deal in Mesa. Shortly thereafter she began representing Urban Jungle in Arizona and nationwide. A few short weeks joining the SVN team of brokers, the latest Urban Jungle Fun Park was finalized. The 14,428 square foot new Chandler location is at 2061 N. Arizona Avenue, just off Arizona Avenue and north of East Warner Road was leased for over $1.25 million. Hill is a seasoned advisor who has been in commercial real estate since the mid 90’s. It all started in southern California with Roel Construction/Westfield Corporation and her on-site involvement with San Diego Charger, Junior Seau’s restaurant called Seau’s in San Diego. Other notable retail tenants she has represented include Arizona Sports Clinic, Willow Midwife Center for Birth and Wellness, TouchUps Salon, the Grid Cybercafe, Osteria Pizza & Pasta, Rott n’ Grapes Wine & Beer Bar, and Cups and Cakes just to name a few. Hill stated, “I take my clients goals very personally and put myself in their shoes.” Hill is no rookie to retail investments. One of her most memorable early retail projects was when she co-founded a kiosk brokerage company that installed an outdoor kiosk at University Towne Center in La Jolla, California. “It makes me smile to think my co-owner Lori Rubenstein and I participated in that emerging effort that still exists today,” Hill said.
Hill has taken a very personal approach to all of her clients needs when looking for tenant space across the Valley. Expanding local restaurant operators need a broker that understands their business what makes them unique and how best to deliver that vision. “I want to dazzle and delight my clients. It makes me feel good that they are assured I’m thinking outside the box to not only achieve their goals, but to surpass them,” Hill expressed. Tenant representation takes on a larger responsibility because so much research is involved in the emerging markets and demographic knowledge in specific areas. Unique eatery concepts from California, Texas, Kansas, and Louisiana are entering Arizona while local businesses are looking to expand their presence all across Phoenix Metro. “My clients learn very quickly that I am a fervent ally and nothing brings me greater joy than to bring a better deal to them than they expected,” said Hill.
