Menlo Group has spent the past decade servicing the commercial real estate needs of business owners across Phoenix.
Menlo Group Commercial Real Estate, a boutique commercial real estate firm in Tempe, Ariz., celebrated its 10th anniversary this October.
The firm was founded by brothers Tanner and Grafton Milne in 2008—right before the economy sunk into the Great Recession. Menlo Group persevered through months without earning a profit, motivated by the desire to better serve clients. The company has since become a leader in the Valley’s industrial, dental, medical and professional office markets.
“Over the past 10 years, we’ve watched the market expand to the vibrant economy we have today,” said Tanner Milne, president of Menlo Group. “We’ve seen our clients expand their businesses in terms of number of employees and locations, and it’s exciting to have played a role in their growth and success.”
Menlo Group’s ability to serve clients is enhanced by the development of the company’s Ideal Space Navigator™ and Ideal Outcome Navigator™. Crafted by company leadership, these unique tools guide advisors and clients throughout the transaction process, ensuring all clients receive the same great service.
The company’s clients also benefit from the efforts of the team’s transaction managers, who hold Arizona Real Estate licenses and help facilitate each deal. Menlo Group currently has three transaction managers to support the company’s ten advisors. A three-person office staff rounds out the team.
The growing team at Menlo Group created the need for a permanent headquarters. The firm occupied five different offices, including a space above a piano studio, before purchasing a building in Tempe, Ariz., near Broadway Rd. and the AZ-101 Loop. After extensive renovations, team members moved in to the space last year. They have found the modern office space provides an environment that energizes team members and fosters collaboration between team members, clients and vendors.
“Our headquarters has given us a permanent home and enables us to show how far we’ve come,” said Lisa Ingram, senior transaction manager who has been at Menlo Group for seven years. “We’ve worked hard over the years to get to where we are today, and we look forward to continuing to innovate to better serve our clients.”
