SALT LAKE CITY & BOISE, IDAHO—March 26, 2012—Mike Lawson, president and CEO of Commerce Real Estate Solutions, an independently owned and operated member of the Cushman & Wakefield Alliance, announced today the opening of a new full-service office in Boise, Idaho effective April 1, 2012.
The new Cushman & Wakefield | Commerce Boise branch is the 10th office for the commercial real estate brokerage firm, and the second to open in the Intermountain West this year. The office will house 23 professionals (15 agents, 4 staff, and 4 property managers).
“Our strategic intent of opening a new office in Idaho is to serve our clients through excellent local leadership, while providing the global reach of Cushman & Wakefield with the industry-leading services of Commerce,” said Lawson.
“This expansion is the next step of our long-term growth strategy. After searching in Idaho for the past six years, we are excited to have found the service-line experts and partners, who are leading a well-experienced team of professionals, that we want our clients to do business with.”
LeAnn Hume will serve as branch manager and Tim Reid as principal of the new Boise office located at 398 South 9th Street, Suite 260. Hume and Reid will lead the team of brokerage professionals at the new Cushman & Wakefield | Commerce office.
The new full-service group will benefit from Commerce’s acclaimed, super-regional resources, including its Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and graphics divisions, as well as the valuation and international platform and consulting services of Cushman & Wakefield.
“We are tremendously excited about bringing such a strong brand and our current team’s 175 years of combined experience to the Boise market,” said Hume. “By joining with Cushman & Wakefield | Commerce we provide our clients with the highest level of service sophistication and international reach in the commercial real estate world, Boise and the Intermountain West. This is fulfillment of the goal we set when we came together as professionals.”
In addition to the experienced team of professionals led by Reid and Hume, Lawson confirmed that Commerce’s continued interest in Boise is due to the region’s enduring business community and the strength of its leadership. As the largest city in Idaho, Boise touts itself as the hub of commerce, banking and government for the state.
