Meet My “Cooperating Competitors”

oxymoronIt’s not often that you will find me promoting my competitors, much less endorse them as cooperative.

Yet, in this case the endorsement is a necessary and complimentary one that serves the interests of commercial real estate investors in the greater Prescott, Arizona market area.

Although oxymoronic, please meet my “cooperating competitors.”

The Prescott Area Commercial Group (PACG) is a non-profit real estate (is “non-profit real estate” an oxymoron) consortium that promotes investment, training and networking of property information among central and northern Arizona commercial brokers and agents.

The Power of Disciplined Focus

PACG represents a disciplined focus on commercial real estate investment and property performance among perhaps the most experienced and highly trained professionals who know and understand the fundamentals of investing in real estate.

PACG was originally formed as a commercial networking group that met to discuss Prescott, Arizona’s commercial real estate market, properties and opportunities. Now PACG is more than a quiet group meeting over coffee to exchange listing and sales information.

The commercial real estate market demands a disciplined focus in order to stay on top of the rapidly evolving trends.

Risky Business or Cooperative Competitors?

PACG is now the most prominent and perhaps “connected” group of commercial specialists in the northern Arizona real estate market.

Having met with most of the PACG Members and interacted with them, I can state without reservation that they are a qualified and trustworthy group that any owner or tenant can call on for assistance. PACG members know their stuff and they work hard to consistently improve their skills and knowledge in order to meet the needs of each client.

Introducing competitors may be regarded as a bit risky, however, in today’s volatile market I believe having a network of trusted colleagues who can provide a kind of “brain trust” is an asset that can be called upon and tapped into for solutions.

Sounding Rusty and Eroded

At the risk of sounding old or, at least rusty, dated and eroded, I’m going to reach back in time and drag an old principle forward. In decades long gone the industry where I have made my mark and enjoyed my gains (and honestly, some losses too) was one built upon trusted associations where business resulted largely from shared information gained from a trusted network of professionals.

Yes, some of this has been eroded over time, which is why I find my association with PACG PACG members refreshing, non-threatening and beneficial to both me and my clients.

I don’t mind if you meet my trusted competitors.
